In Paris, France, a group of movie-star agents go about their lives and work, and they'll have to figure out how to carry on with the agency after the passing of their fearless leader. This hour-long drama plays out much like a soap opera, with more realistic problems and concerns. They don't do Olympic-size gymnastics to get you to believe a plot or to create drama.Written by
The second season of the show proved what I sensed from the beginning: that a (rather) interesting idea would not survive the 2nd season syndrome: it is a massive, embarrassing, and above all very boring installment. Unfortunately, a third season has been announced. It lacks everything an even average American TV series has: the writing is poor, especially the dialogues which serve the sole and pathetic purpose of "filling" the gaps of non-existent dramatic tension. There is not a single moment when we care about the characters. The actors, to the exception of the actor playing Hicham (still underused), extremely bad, all of them acting as if they'd rather be some other place, bored to death. The Golden Palme goes to the ex-Connasse Camille Cottin whose wide-opened eyes represent the extent of her acting capabilities, although I started suspecting she was just panicking because she forgot her (sparse) lines. I kept wondering if the actors in general had troubles with their contact lenses. I won't say anything about the way the gay guy is represented, I'm just astonished "screenwriters" can write a part like this in 2017 and think it is remotely funny. It can be funny, but this is too lukewarm, too "hey, guys", I'm embracing the cause!" The series lacks rhythm, the cameos from the so-called stars very embarrassing and so tame... Waouh, Juliette Binoche eats pizza out of a box???? So audacious!!! Avoid.
