He won't fit in

Another reviewer says the ending is obvious. This presumes you can maintain your attention throughout this dull episode.

We're in post war France and the setting seems a bit clichéd. There's an annoying lady singing and playing her squeeze box, and a pretty young woman who argues with her papa (accent on the second syllable). The accents are foreign but perhaps not all truly French.

Our protagonist (series regular Patrice Bergerac) wants to bring his crippled (that's the word they use) friend home. His wealthy family is unwelcoming. "Do you mean his presence will put a damper on our activities?", the sister asks her parents, in perhaps the most stilted line of dialog of the season.

The core story is, in fact, pretty good, but it's not executed well.
