[TV Review] Mirador - Season 1

For the winter period, Radio-Canada, a French Canadian public TV network, had nothing serious to offer to us. While Mirador, a show created by Daniel Thibault and Isabelle Pelletier, looks full of promises because of its premise, it sinks quickly into doltishness.

First of all, Mirador is the name of a public relation firm from Montreal headed by Richard Racine (Gilles Renaud). In each episode, a client comes to see Mirador's crisis management team led by Philippe Racine (Patrick Labbé). Obviously, the mandate of Philippe's team is to rebuild the tarnished image of Mirador's given client. Besides working, Philippe also has to deal with the jaleousy of his older brother, Luc (David La Haye), who wants to head the crisis management team so badly or his ex-girlfriend, Véronique (Pascale Bussières), who is now engaged to Carl Imbeault (Sébastien Delorme), a former athlete turned into a TV personality.

First Thoughts On 'Mirador'

Is public relation your way to earn your bread? Have you ever wondered what are all the things we hear about people working in PR? If you live in Canada and can speak French, there's a funny TV series waiting for you on Radio-Canada.

Philippe Racine (Patrick Labbé) has been abroad, because he was disgusted by all the lies he spreaded as a PR. He comes back in Montreal in order to work for Mirador, a PR firm that was founded by his father, Richard (Gilles Renaud). Moreover, to Philippe's surprise, the firm's crisis management unit has been helmed by his brother, Luc (David La Haye). With Philippe's return, Luc feels - and with reason - that the father's pet is back in the house. After all, the patriarch gives Luc's job to Philippe out of trust. However, can Philippe find a way to combine honesty and his dedication to
