Storyline

In this Flemish police series, called after the river which runs trough the district where it plays, crimes are investigated and solved, usually in one episode, by a police team. The main protagonists, Lucas Bataillie, a brilliant but socially rather inept inspector, and his more career-oriented colleague, who becomes his superior, but only in rank, also have an on-off personal relationship. In the first season, they're also assisted by promising young trainee Simon Knops. The old commissioner is incompetent and often ignored, other recurrent characters are quite minor. Written by KGF Vissers

A terrible performance
7 March 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

What can I say about the VTM (Flemish TV)series "Rupel"... Well I'll start off with my thoughts after I saw the first episode. Disappointing...very disappointing. The plots really seemed to be made up by a three year old. Acting performances were much below minimum standards, in fact the only good actor in the series was Raymond Bossaerts who every Belgian still remembers as Ben Kurrel in the legendary BRT series "Kapitein Zeppos". The only fact that convinced me of looking at the next 7 episodes was that it is filmed in my own backyard, the recreation ground "the schorre" in Boom, Belgium. But I could no longer bear the terrible scenarios and the "deja-vu" feeling after every episode. So I stopped watching Rupel after episode 8. In it's all knowing wisdom, VTM thought that the series would make a hit, so they made a second series of 13 episodes even before the first one aired on TV. Big mistake... Luckaly, the person in charge of VTM's program management, Jan Verheyen, quit his job soon after the first series was shown on TV. Now let us never speak about that terrible piece of TV history again.
