My only regret is that I can't be a newbie and watch this series all over again from scratch, that's how much pleasure it gave me. What terrific casting. What great writing. You never know what's going to happen next. Wonderful.
One thing that I loved the most was the brother "Martin." He looks much like Robert Mitchum looked in Cape Fear, if R. M. had been much more hirsute. What a fun "bad boy" character. Denis Ménochet (Martin) exudes the same combination of quiet menace, boxer boy body and charisma as Mitchum had, too. Lots more of a softy at heart, though. A very good brother to have around, if only to make your life a lot more exciting. A real treat to watch.
The whole series is just one big luscious bag of tasty fun. I envy those of you who will be seeing it for the first time. Enjoy.
