The positive aspect of the show is the casting and the cinematography. Jean Reno is a superb actor, and the rest of the characters are also well cast. His boss is played by Orla Brady, who is commonly known from the BBC series Mistresses. There are many other familiar faces from British crime and mystery series, including Jane Wymark, who played Joyce Barnaby on Midsomer Murders. The filming locations, the sets, and the camera angles are superb.
The show is in English, but the accent choice is odd. Jean Reno is one of the few characters during the entire series that speaks with a French accent. The vast majority of the characters speak in an American accent. It was very strange to see all of the familiar faces from British television speaking with an American accent. The accent choice leads to a definitive loss of “atmosphere,” though the show was filmed in Paris.
There are eight episodes that are about 50 minutes each, which relates to another criticism that I have – that the stories were rushed and abrupt. Each episode has the murder investigation plot, and multiple subplots concerning the personal issues of Jean Reno’s character and his daughter. At times, the story lines take dramatic leaps forward.Read more ›
If there is a Season 2 let us hope it is done better!
Reno's the whole reason for watching, his world-weary charisma breathing some life into the clichés.Read more ›
As others have rightly commented the inclusion of a string of poor English speaking actors and it being made in English is inexplicable.
Please do not buy this expecting a Braquo or a Spiral as it is more akin to a complete turkey. The mystery is not why it was cancelled but rather why it was ever commissioned.
