I found this show to be uncomfortable to watch because of uneven tone. On the surface it is a light comedy. One level down, a biting satire of French society, which depends on the reading of 100 early San Antonio novels for context. And some knowledge of la guerre d’Algerie. The disturbing layer below that, is that the characters will sometimes do things which are so surprising and awful that they abruptly shift from light comedy to hard drama. I don’t mind a dramedy, in a longer series, where the shift is more gradual, but abrupt shifts are annoying because they interfere with the willing suspension of disbelief that drama depends on. That takes this one down from 5/5 stars to 3/5 stars.
