A crazy series: Family Business (Netflix)

Synopsis

Joseph still has tons of business ideas but still works against his will in his father Gérard’s kosher butcher shop. When he learns from a “reliable” source that cannabis is going to be legalized, he has a brilliant idea: to transform the family butcher’s shop into a “Beucherie.”

The opinion of CNET France

The concept of Family Business is rather original for a French series and makes it stand out. With the first season, we take pleasure in following the setbacks of the Hazan family while the son, Joseph, involves them in a scheme which will cause them more problems than anything else.

Composed of three seasons, Family Business is one of his series whose absurdity goes crescendo. From its beginnings it turns out to be a crazy comedy, but the more the episodes follow one another, the more the humor becomes more and more schoolboy and the adventures of the characters all the more delirious.

Fans of this kind of humor and spectators fond of high comedies will be won over by Family Business. The series benefits from an amazing cast, with Jonathan Cohen and Gérard Darmon who, among other things, form a brilliant duo.

Some may find the last season a bit too vulgar, and overall this is a divisive series: either you like it or you don’t. In all cases, Family Business never ceases to assume its crazy aspect and remains a good entertainment.

A hilarious series: What We Do In The Shadows (Canal+)

Synopsis

Spin-off series version of the eponymous 2014 film (entitled Vampires in privacy in VF), What We Do In The Shadows is a mockumentary following the daily life of Nandor, Laszlo, Nadja and Colin, four vampires living in New Jersey with the human who serves as their handyman.

The opinion of CNET France

Eternal life is not as glamorous as it looks. For the vampires of What We Do In The Shadows and their companion, Guillermo, living for centuries means above all coping with the routine of everyday life and the banalities of life similar to ordinary mortals. Between sometimes tense cohabitation and a constant need for fresh blood, the vampires in the series form an atypical family with a human who only wants one thing: to be one of them.

Cultivating the second degree and having fun with the codes of vampire stories, What We Do In The Shadows features charismatic and deliciously hilarious characters. Guillermo is undoubtedly the most endearing of all, protector of this band of vampires who in the end often behave like a bunch of big children.

If the rhythm of the series is sometimes slightly uneven, What We Do In The Shadows always manages to be inventive and to make you laugh. We delight in front of this show whose replicas hit the mark and the humor has a lot of bite. Lovers of wacky comedy and comical situations will not be left out. What We Do In The Shadows which is for them a series not to be missed.

An addictive series: Teen Wolf (Netflix)

Synopsis

The life of Scott McCall, a most ordinary teenager, changes completely the day he is bitten by a werewolf.

The opinion of CNET France

Inspired by the eponymous 1980s film, Teen Wolf is a fantastic series as we like them, anchored in a universe with well-developed mythology and with particularly captivating characters. The distribution of the series is very invested in the latter and offers effective performances (Dylan O’Brien in the lead, particularly endearing in the role of Stiles).

From staging to special effects, Teen Wolf does not have to pale before Vampire Diaries and other series of the genre and offers its viewers exciting and breathtaking intrigues. The series progresses with its characters and the more its hero grows, the more the show moves away from the codes of the series for teenagers to become more adult. Teen Wolf therefore shows a nice evolution throughout six seasons, each new burst of episodes managing to surpass its previous one, to always better entertain the viewer.

Once you are done Teen Wolfget ready to watch the feature film from the series scheduled for next October on Paramount+, a new streaming platform that will arrive in France by the end of the year via Canal+.
