Storyline

This series was inspired by and written concurrently with the events of terrorism and love that have transpired in Paris since November 2015. It is loosely based on the life story of the creator of the series (the screenplay writer, the director, and the lead actor) Eli Ben David, who moved to Paris with his wife who had been appointed as a cultural attaché in the Israeli embassy in Paris.

"Vastly annoying" sums it up quite nicely.
6 March 2020 | by markfranhSee all my reviews

Thanks to the other reviewer here for borrowing their headline but it really summed it up quite nicely.

We watched the first two episodes in one sitting and thought it interesting and certainly different and definitely worth continuing with.

Episodes 3 and 4, not quite up to the level of the first two episodes. Cliche type writing using recycled themes you'd see in too many other series when I was expecting something unusual relating to the lives of an Israeli couple living in Paris post the terrorist attacks.

By episode 5, we were thinking: a) this is ripping off the story line of a bullying boss and a wimpy employee from right out of something like The Devil Wears Prada and b) the scene with the stolen trousers at the clothing shop was just not credible; yes, somebody might slip into a changing room and check to see if you were silly enough to leave your wallet in the changing room when you were out in the shop, but to be brazen and stupid enough to steal the jeans with the wallet in the pocket? Seriously?

Anyway, we tried episode 6 and came away just hating the people and thinking any sensible couple, she would have quit her job and the pair of them would have been on the next flight home.

We gave up near the end of that one so I have no idea how it ended and don't care.

A shame, as the premise was good but it just deteriorated into so many cliches it wasn't worth it.
