I have been following this french quality series from the very first season on Danish TV. It is centered around 3 friends which all live on the paradise like island of St. Tropez. Jessica is the beautiful bartender/model/dancer and function like a "mother", and is a good listener. Laura is the sensible friend, work as a doctor on a local hospital. Caroline starts out as a struggling singer but becomes very successful, later in the seasons she becomes a lawyer.
In each episode the story usually evolves around one of these characters, but the strength of the series is the large pool of supporting characters, and it isnt unusual that one of these characters gets "the spotlight" and ensures the series doesnt become tiresome. The series is not unlike other American series like Beverly Hills 91210 however the problems that ofcourse arises (even on St. Tropez!) are more downscaled and believable (or maybe its because its sunny all the time).
The locations are ofcourse stunning since they are filming on St. Tropez, and so are the actors, "Beautiful people with beautiful problems".
