Mindblowing television
6 February 2010 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This must be one of the best series I have ever seen. The series tell you the story of the extremely successful television company called The Parelvissers. After years of success the head of the cooperation (Jan De Ridder) disappeared along with 100 million Belgian Franks. After 6 years all the members of this television company meet again in a house for an extended weekend. And this series shows you how day after day every member of The Parelvissers has it's own secrets that lead to the mystery of Jan De Ridder's dissapearing. It is an extremely intelligent story with excellent actors. It makes you wanting to watch the entire series in one time. It reminded me at Twin Peaks at some point. One person dissapaeres and everyone has had a hand in it. Just rent or buy this, you won't be disappointed. The DVD box also features English subtitles.
