IMDb's Plot Outline is totally wrong
25 June 2005 | by en2004g1qoqpSee all my reviews

First you have to understand that it's a TV series. The true plot outline is goes more like this. An ex-blue-collar city employee tries to blow the whistle on corruption but when he looses his job over his righteous zeal, he goes a life of honesty to a life of screwing the system. The whole family adopts this attitude.

The whole title of the show is "Les Bougons, C'est Aussi Ça La Vie" Which translates into "The Bougons, Life's Also Like That".

Retards, they are not. And what is a Quebec Redneck anyway?

They are just giving the angle of the EX honest working man deciding to play by any rules possible.
