Superb Television
31 January 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Het Eiland, another great TV series directed by the amazing Jan Eelen, who can't stop delivering some great television.

Het Eiland tells us the story about 3 friends(Guido, Franky, Michel) who work together at the administration in Cynalco Medics. When Alain 'protput' Vandam(a great role by Tom Van Dyck, just look at him and u start to laugh :D) arrives at Cynalco Medics to work with these 3 friends, the whole situation gets out of hand. Franky can't stand 'protput' (as he calls him) and continuously makes fun of Alain, who has always been a very different (his laugh :D), unsure type of person. This series gets so hilarious at times, unbelievable.

After 'Buiten De Zone', 'Alles Kan Beter', 'het Peulengaleis', 'In De Gloria' and even 'het Geslacht De Pauw', 'Het Eiland' is another great Belgian comedy you don't wanna miss.
