Just when it was getting interesting, it was cancelled. The criticism about American accents notwithstanding, very little about this show disturbed me at all. The unFrenchness of the cast made Jean Reno's role stand out much more and I suppose my bilingualism made me not only appreciate his English accent more, but also allowed me to understand it.
It definitely had things going for it, although yes, the casting was a tiny bit weak: Reno's boss didn't quite have the stature one might expect of a senior cop, and Reno's daughter might have been a tad TOO vulnerable but in a way, these small apparent failings were not really negative and certainly didn't detract from my enjoyment overall.
Interesting stories, interesting routines (I liked the semi-comical back and forth between team members at the beginning of each case), a very believable and likable cop in Jean Reno and of course, Paris, all went to make it something of a disappointment for me that there won't be any suite.
