An ex-blue-collar city employee tries to blow the whistle on corruption but when he loses his job over his righteous zeal, he goes from a life of honesty to a life of screwing the system. The whole family adopts this attitude. The whole title of the show is "Les Bougons, C'est Aussi Ça La Vie" Which translates into "The Bougons, This Is Also Life"
In my opinion, the best French-Canadian t.v. serie ever made.
With a complicated plot, this serie takes you through the life of the young Nikki Balsamo, a rising member of the Montreal Mafia. The story is so intense that you can't wait to see the next episode. The fact that the main character doesn't express his future intentions adds to the greatness of the serie. The cast is filled with some of the best French-Canadian actors ; Michel Côté, Claude Blanchard and the young Romano Orzari. Absolutely a must see.
