David Strajmayster and Guillaume Carcaud are AMAZINGLY funny as two Parisian airheads with lots of time on their hands, and as the same two when they move to the countryside to run a hotel. The characters brilliantly blunder through pratfalls, social faux pas, "unintentional" direct insults, complete blind stupidity and all manner of misunderstandings. The portrayals are genius and every sucker punch has an extra shot to keep you laughing.
The first series are very reminiscent of a satirisation of Paris Hilton's reality shows in the way the Samantha goes from job to job proving there is nothing too simple for her to misunderstand or get wrong. The shows in the country side benefit from additional actors that allow the story lines to get a bit more complex.
Favourite episodes: the early fair, picnicking in the back yard, any one where Chantal gets fed up, shooting in the woods and camping with the scouts.
