Summary of "Season 1 - Really cool show": This show caught me off guard in a number of ways. I was surprised by the lack of nudity and sex scenes in the show, especially since it was a French series about prostitues, but also because of some of the themes they addressed. I won't go into much detail (spoilers, you know), but they were just things that I wasn't expecting. The show got a bit uncomfortable for me in a few places, but I think that was part of why I enjoyed it. It's more interesting to watch something that makes you think, or makes you feel something than a show where you just watch it passively.
I'm still bummed about the quality of the video, as I don't think it represents the quality of the show. Without knowing more about it, I can't say whether it was the fault of the process to get it on the disc, or how it was shot, I just know that it doesn't look good at all. I'm definitely interested in watching the second season (also, the last), to continue the story, but also to see if the quality is any better. It'll be out on June 16th. (read entire review)
