Heavily airbrushed
30 August 2014 | by irala68See all my reviews

According to the pilot of the series, Paris is mainly populated by white middle class people between 20 and 30 years old, who's main concern is finding a good party. Dialogs are boring and meaningless,there is no action of any sort; all the conversations seemed to be focused on reinforcing the idea of Paris that is romantic and cheesy, repeating the popular clichés and stereotypes.

Very clean visually (there is not even one piece of rubbish on the street & even "roughed up" hair of some french guys look carefully arranged), some good camera work which is unfortunately wasted on this series. So, if you're looking for an airbrushed version of Paris and airbrushed reality than it is series for you, but if you're looking for some more substantial stuff to watch you can give this one safely a miss.
