It could rain all summer. Non stop, Genre. A Canadian airline could ruin your Mykonos vacation by canceling your flight at the last minute. Goodbye, fresh Greek salad and creamy taramosalata.

Could it be that Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau Airport is collapsing and disappearing, poof! under a mountain of lost suitcases or “waiting” to be recovered. In short, it could be that your holidays spoil and leave you in the water of your own swimming pool.
Solution? Training for a marathon … on television. You will read books during the winter. You will climb Mont Saint-Hilaire during the holidays. The time has come to finally make your subscriptions to all these digital platforms that align your monthly credit card statements profitable. Here is a list of titles that will fuel your discussions parties patio, between two songs by Lou Bega.
The British know how to tell the story of adolescence without turning completely around Euphoria. In the touching series Heart-poundingCharlie, an introverted and openly gay teenager, has a crush on his high school rugby star, Nick. The two mates first become friends and what happens after the break throws you off the couch (or not)! It is a smart and contemporary series that speaks directly to the heart, in French and English.
This is how I love you 2 (Extra from Tou.tv)
After a year off, our four favorite Sainte-Foy bosses are taking the reins of their criminal empire. End the embargo! But in this International Year of the Woman, Huguette (Marilyn Castonguay) is going through a great postpartum that blurs her tiger eye. Furthermore, the arrival of Gaétan 2 (Steve Laplante) erodes the influence of Gaétan 1 (François Létourneau) and the permanent position of Serge (Patrice Robitaille) arouses greed. Will our Sunday criminals be able to discover the identity of the whore who saved their lives? Yes, everything fits, I promise.
The ladder (craves)
What ? A series of fiction about a “real crime” of which we already know the outcome? Yes, sir, yes, madam. And it’s great. This eight-episode production revisits the bizarre death of the wife (Toni Collette) of a well-known writer (Colin Firth) from North Carolina. Did the victim fall off the steps or was she coldly killed by her husband who led a double life? The extended family is torn apart and unexpected twists make us question each of the elements of the process, even today. It is called the French version suspicious. Not at all.
Audrey is back (Illico Club)
Victim of a serious accident at the age of 17, Audrey (Florence Longpré) falls into a coma and comes out 18 years later at the age of 35. Everything has changed around Audrey, who will have to relearn every gesture of her daily life. This incredible comedy-drama is unlike anything else. It takes a long time to tame this Audrey. But give it a chance, which is at least three episodes.
The abandonment (Disney +)
There have been a number of series about the collapse of tech companies (We collapsed, Super pumped). The best, in my opinion, remains the one about Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried), founder of the medical company Theranos. At 19, Elizabeth Holmes promises pharmaceutical companies the impossible: a portable device that will test a drop of blood without going through expensive laboratories. This is a first lie, which will unleash another one, until the trap closes on this young woman who is as brilliant as she is megalomaniac.
A criminal case (craves)
Céline Bonnier bursts onto the small screen in this miniseries by Joanne Arseneau (Various facts) about a Courage mother, borderline dysfunctional, who has been fighting for 15 years to get her son (Maxime-Olivier Potvin) out of prison. This thriller begins in 2005 in an after-ball in which a student dies when hit by a car. Shortly thereafter, the driver who ran over her was also killed. Uh Oh. Since everyone knows each other in Saint-Bruno, this mysterious affair awakens a bundle of dusty memories and shines the spotlight on a corrupt police force to the core.
Separation (AppleTV +)
Imagine that a microchip implanted in your brain allows you to separate your office life from your home life. Would you agree to host it? The dystopian thriller Separation (Dissociationin French) attaches this argument to the black mirror in an ingenious and disturbing way. Take off slowly, but the ending will cut your whistle. The visual workmanship is magnificent and the distribution involves Patricia Arquette, Adam Scott, John Turturro and Christopher Walken. One of the most original productions of 2022.
Probably my favorite comedy of 2022 (and 2021 as well). The second season of tricks surpasses the former, which has already achieved brilliant levels of humor. On a modest tour of the four corners of the United States to break into the outfit, 60-year-old comedian Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) can’t find her rhythm or current gags that suit her. Her writing partner, millennial Ava (Hannah Einbinder), tries to guide her, but the two women always end up arguing as they soften their contact with each other. It is comical and refined at the same time. The lesbian cruise episode will become a classic.
The tourist (Amazon Prime Video)
An Irish tourist (Jamie Dornan) wakes up in a remote Australian hospital with his memory cleared. What is his name? What is his job? Does he have a family? He does not know it. He has no phone or wallet with him. The only thing the tourist has is an address written on a piece of paper. He then begins a fully exploded western – in English and French – that will take you to the dusty roads of the magnificent Australian countryside. Fasten your seat belts, let’s go for a dizzying carousel.
We own this city (craves)
fan of The cable, this series from the same creators belongs to you. We follow an elite Baltimore police squad operating as a street gang. Corruption, violence, racism, abuse of power, everything passes. This 100% true story comes from a book written by an investigative reporter from the Baltimore sunshine. The first episode is hermetic, don’t be discouraged, the sequel turns out to be of a high standard.
