Life in the big city...
20 April 2004 | by Herr NosferatuSee all my reviews

This is probably the best television show in contemporary times. It centers around five urban citizens, all of whom are trying desperately to make it in an all too indifferent and valueless world. The tie that binds them together is a profoundly human relationship.

The show is one of the very few ones playing which has a content that isn't presumptuous nor pompous. Indeed, its sincere depiction of young adults living hardships is very far from the obvious fictitious elements of the show which showed its viewers a rather idealistic portrayal of urban life, one view actually so far from truth it is very much starting to become a mockery, i.e. Friends.

The aesthetical look of the french Canadian program is one other aspect this reviewer found especially appealing. The editing, vibrant and lively, is a true pleasure to experience, instead of the stale and rather frigid look of the American sitcoms with only one or two visual perspectives.

The script is yet another refreshing aspect of the show that differentiate it from all others. Its frank and very intelligent dialogue has serious moments, but is also very funny at times. And it doesn't aspire to be deliberately funny either.

The most enjoyable part of this superb show is, unlike practically every show that came before it, and very few that will after it, is that truly brilliant non-chalance to be politically correct.

Thank god for that !
