An interesting second season, but not as good as the first.
on 29 March 2016
This is the second season of the series, and it takes place about a year after the events of season one ended. Most of the same cast return, and the series continues to be about the goings-on at a brothel in Paris in the 1870's.
The series starts with the women who live and work at the brothel having taken over the running of things, and governing themselves. But events conspire against these women, so they find themselves having to have 'protection'. The men who enact this protection are a gang of criminals, and this second season closely follows the activities of this gang.
It's not as good as season one. The show, at this point, lacks originality and the storyline is weaker. Nonetheless, it's still a fascinating series, and I enjoyed watching how these women struggled to retain some control over their lives.
This Blu-ray offers excellent picture and sound quality. The show is in French (with English sub-titles).
