Trivia

-"On avait tourné la toute dernière scène de la série en dernier, et puis on était émus au tournage, on a braillé comme des veaux, ça n'arrêtait plus tout le monde. C'est quand même 8 ans de famille et d'amitié. Quand tu traverses aussi des âges qui sont si importants avec des enfants, et bien à la fois ils se confient parce que tu deviens un peu leur confident, tu n'as pas le mauvais rôle du papa ou de la maman pour vrai. On a traversé plein de choses ensemble, ça a été une très belle aventure. (Propos de Daniel Brière à l'émission "Les enfants de la télé" du 5 octobre 2016). See more »

A gem of French Canadian television!
13 September 2010 | by aerovianSee all my reviews

I am a 100% anglophone who stumbled along with Parisian french for a few years in high school, so I am not fluent but I 'get' a fair part of the dialogue (I've actually been using this show to improve my comprehension and learn the Quebec idioms and accents.) I have to say this is a really delightful family sitcom, and while it is basically a series of short gags as another reviewer pointed it, it's thematically cohesive and extremely well done in all regards. And, it's very funny in a pretty wholesome kind of way (though granted some of the subject matter and dialogue would raise a few eyebrows in prime-time English-language TV.) All the actors are very capable, but Daniel Briere and Anne Dorval are particularly adept at portraying the challenges of parenting in a very realistic yet humorous way.

It's amazing what Quebec television industry manages to turn out with what I assume would be a fairly limited budget due to its relatively small audience -- particularly since you rarely ever see any more than the series' five main actors in the majority of the episodes. English Canadian TV producers could definitely take a lesson or two from Les Parent.
