French TV shows rec list:

Fais pas ci fais pas ça:

Comedy about two very different families living right next to each other: The Lepics and the Bouleys. There are nine seasons so we can see the characters evolve on a really long time period. Some serious issues are tackled with humour, like education, how to cope with the death of a loved one, or how parents react to one of their children coming out as gay, for instance. Most of the characters are really lovable and you easily get attached to them even though they can be annoying sometimes. Also, there are some really funny moments. I wouldn’t say it’s one of my favourite shows ever but I had a nice time watching it (though, I haven’t watched all the seasons yet).

Trigger warning: none that I can think of (this show is suitable for children).

Level of difficulty when it comes to French: I think it should be fine (there’s nothing really technical, the show’s about everyday life, so it mainly uses colloquial/casual French).

Les Bleus premiers pas dans la police:

A four-season show about rookies in the French police. I used to really love this show when I was in middle school, and I have very fond memories of it now, even if I haven’t watched it for a long time. This show has diversity and representation: a Muslim man (who is one of the main characters) and his family, gay men (one of them is also a main character), a bisexual woman (also a main character in the first seasons), and so on. It also portrays strong female characters (including a woman in a position of power, from season 2 to the end I think). The characters are very lovable (in my opinion), and funny. By the way, this show has very funny moments as well as serious moments (including the scenes showing how the LGBT characters and the women deal with discrimination at their workplace or elsewhere). The only problem with this show is that the end is a bit unsatisfying considering it stopped because it failed to get renewed (or at least that’s what I understood at the time).   

Trigger warning: depiction of discrimination (for instance, homophobia), and of course the usual warnings when it comes to cop shows (even though it is far less graphic than most other shows of this kind, and there are less murder investigations than in most investigation shows).

Level of difficulty when it comes to French: I think this one is okay too. There might be some terms describing police stuff, but all in all it’s pretty casual.

Le Bureau des Légendes (ongoing show):

A show about the DGSE (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure), which is basically the French intelligence agency concerning foreign matters. It has three seasons so far and it’s one of my favourite TV show ever. It’s captivating, I got really attached to many of the characters (and most of them are not completely good or bad, there are a lot of grey characters, which is great), and it’s also really moving (especially the last season I think). One of my favourite thing about this show is its subtlety: it’s deeply moving, but in a subtle and somewhat low-key way. There are close to no typical tear-jerking scenes, with sad music and close-ups on the crying faces of devastated characters. There are really sad scenes, but they are played out with a great sobriety.

Trigger warning: psychological and physical torture (nothing too graphic though).

Level of difficulty when it comes to French: it should be mainly okay, I think. There are probably some technical terms, since it’s about an intelligence agency, but it should be understandable as a whole. Also, many scenes are in other languages (English, Farsi, Arabic, etc) and are subtitled in French, which is really good in order to practise your written French ;)

Les Revenants (ongoing show):

A show about dead people coming back to life in a village of the Pyrénées. It only has two seasons so far, but I’m really looking forward to more. The show is really mysterious, with a gloomy atmosphere that I absolutely love. The dead people (who are from different generations and died at different times) come back to their family/loved ones (when they have some), and no one understands what happened, including the dead people. After their arrival, other very strange events take place in the village. Some characters have very dubious motives and you’re often unsettled, not knowing what to think of them. However, you can’t help but to get attached to some of them anyway. This show has some very serious themes like how to cope with the death of a loved one, death in general, love, family (by blood or by choice).

Trigger warnings: death, suicide.

Level of difficulty concerning French: I think it’s pretty okay… The show aired on American TV so you can probably find a subtitled version quite easily, which is pretty cool :D

Kaamelott:

My favourite French tv show (and even my favourite show ever). This show depicts the Arthurian legend in a humorous way, and it’s one of the funniest thing I’ve ever watched. The humour is unique, the characters are really lovable, and the entire show is extremely creative: this is honestly pure genius. Plus, the atmosphere evolves from something exclusively light and funny to something that is serious and deeply moving at times. The show goes from episodes that last a few minutes to far longer episodes in the 6th (and last) book (=season). I could go on and on about this show, but nothing I could say would make it justice. Honestly, just give it a go, this is brilliant.

PS: Alexandre Astier (who plays Arhtur, wrote the scenario, the music and basically came up with this entire masterpiece) is a national hero. That’s all I had to say.

Trigger warning: it’s really funny and you’re having the time of your life, and suddenly there is a serious/sad scene and you feel like crying (but it’s worth it)… just be prepared ^^

Level of difficulty concerning French: it might be pretty hard at first, because they speak quite quickly and use weird expressions (but then, use these expressions in front of Kaamelott fans [ie a looooot of people] and see their faces lit up => it could be really rewarding I think).

Apart from these, all the creations canal + (Braquo, Engrenages, Cercle polaire…) have a good reputation/positive reviews I think, but I’ve only watched Les Revenants and Le Bureau des Légendes for now, so I only talked about those ^^

I think many people like 10 pour cent and Hero Corp too, but I haven’t watched them (yet) so I couldn’t include them in the list.

I try to keep this blog opinion free and I will remain opinion free after this, I just can’t sit on this any longer.

I have been in the industry for about 10 years, before my current career I worked as a PA on a television show.  My main goal with this blog was just have fun and help promote Future Man because I’ve been a fan of Josh and I’ve always loved this genre, it’s a perfect marriage of fandom for me.

That’s why I am here. I also happen to work in different areas of the Hollywood industry, part of that is visiting and working on sets for movies and television shows.

There is a problem of professionalism on the set of Future Man or the recent lack of professionalism displayed this past weekend. I haven’t visited it but I have heard about it. I have seen the photos of the set, I can put two and two together.

As someone who has visited other sets there is a level of professionalism that is required. Sets can be fun, a good set is loose but professional, without stress and concern that their shot is going to be ruined or that someone is going to explode on them and make their day harder or awkward. It takes time to set one scene of a television show, a scene may last 30 seconds but I can guarantee it took hours to get what you see on your TV screens. It takes time to reset for another take.

There are people who work on that set who are not getting the same salary as Josh or Eliza, they are getting far less. They don’t get fancy trailers and the good tables at craft services, they work longer and harder than the actors do. That is a fact. While Josh sits in a chair provided to him before redoing a take they are hauling cameras and wheel tracks and hundred pound steadicam rigs. They work harder and they are just as important as Josh and Eliza when it comes to making this show. It’s why I include the crews behind the scenes photos. Without them Josh wouldn’t have this job, without them this show would not be made.

They deserve their time to be appreciated, they deserve a peaceful working environment. They deserve to not have to redo a take because the lead actor is stressed that a guest of his is behaving badly. The should not have to be concerned that a guest of Josh’s is waving her phone around and flipping off the camera and making noise while they prepare to film. Hulu doesn’t deserve wasted money on takes because a guest of the lead actor wants attention.

I find the behavior of the the guests of the past few days to be abhorrent and unprofessional and damaging to the set as a whole. It creates an uneasy and unprofessional environment for everyone.

This is unacceptable:

This is unacceptable:

This is unacceptable:

This is not the actions of a working actress, working actresses don’t need to be petty, a working actress would have respect for the crew working 12 hour days, she would have respect for Josh, who is getting ready to film a scene.

Here he is in his janitors outfit, this is a working set:

Two instances from two different agencies who do not care about what happens here on tumblr. These media outlets were around long before we ever knew what this woman’s name was. They are reporting that she is disruptive and throwing tantrums. And she just gave us the proof she is not at all a professional actress on Josh’s set, she is not even a respectable guest on his set.

I can also personally testify her name holds no weight in Hollywood, she is not known in the United States. Pap photos with her name and articles and blinds written about her are because people are hearing these things about her. No one on tumblr can force these outlets to write about her, she does not provide them with advertiser dollars, there isn’t an incentive to make up stories about her.

People talk, sets and actors and their families have reputations. I have only ever heard good professional nice things about Josh. But that can quickly change.

For now, I am going with the idea that Josh might not be fully aware of her latest attention grabbing scheme. He allowed her and his other friends on a working set, which has it’s own levels of professionalism or lack there of but after this weekend I am not surprised she is back.

This just isn’t appropriate, it’s not professional and it’s not fair or kind to the cast and especially not the crew.

As a listed producer:

It is imperative Josh gets this situation under control, it’s his responsibility to make sure his guests are not giving the set and this show a bad reputation.

I hope he does it before someone else does.

There is a family setting off what HAVE to be illegal fireworks in the field behind my building. They’re not even that far from us, like 10 feet from the building at most. I’m almost 100% sure ashes are raining down on my roof as we speak. What is wrong with people?

Try by @kateyes224

A/N:  This is slightly NSFW, and is officially my first foray into smut.  Irony being, it’s dialogue only, so does it really count as smut?  You be the judge.  

“No, Mulder.  Absolutely not.”

“Scullyyyyyyy.  Come on!  Pleeease?”

“I said no.  And stop whining.”

“You won’t even try it, just this once?  For me?”

“No.  You might not believe this, Mulder, but I did try once before.  Last time we tried it…you kind of…hurt me.”

“I hurt you?”

“Yeah.”

“When was this?  Why don’t I remember it?”

“I’d be more surprised if you did remember it.  We’d barely even been together at that point.”

“Okay.  So except for this alleged attempt where I supposedly hurt you-”

“You most definitely hurt me.  Which is why it’s only happened the once.”

“I’m sorry if I hurt you, Scully.  Really.  It was unintentional.  But that was ages ago.  You haven’t tried it since, have you?”

“No, and I don’t really care to.  Especially not now that I know that you let Diana do it.”

“Scully, come on, do not bring Diana into this conversation right now.  It was totally different with her.”

“Yeah, so I’ve noticed.”

“Scullyyyyyyyy, come onnnnn.  Don’t make me beg.”

“No.”

“You let me do it to you sometimes.  How is that any different?”

“Mulder, it’s different because I don’t actually mind when you do it to me.  I kinda like it.”

“Really?  You like when I do it?”

“Yeah, Mulder, I do.  You always seem to know exactly when I want it without me ever having to tell you.  I mean…usually whenever you do it to me it’s preceded by some dire circumstance, so I know it’s borne of an unconscious desire to reconnect with me.”

“That’s not true.”

“It is true.  Stop that, I can’t concentrate when your hand is doing that.”

“When my hand is doing this?”

“Mmm, God.  Yes, that.  Besides, the way we do it now is kind of…our thing, you know?  Please, Mulder, you gotta stop…”

“You sure you want me to stop?  You seem to be enjoying yourself.”

“No, don’t stop.  Jesus Christ, Mulder, that feels amazing.”  

“You sure you don’t want to try it?  For me?”

“Uhhhnn, Mulder, you’re not playing fair.  Please, not, uh, oh God, not with the puppy dog eyes…Okay, fine, if I try it this one time will you stop harassing me?”

“I’ll never stop harassing you, Scully, it’s what I do best.  And you never know, you may love it so much you’re willing to do it for me more often.”

“I seriously doubt it.  Oh, yes, right there, keep going.”

“I’m thinking you will.  And maybe we can just save it for special occasions.  You know, birthdays, holidays, those times when I make you come so hard you can’t walk right for a week…”

“God, your hubris would be obnoxious if I weren’t so close right now.”

“Sounds like a perfect time to try it then.”

“Uhhhh, okay, okay, okay…yes, I promise I’ll try it, I’ll do anything you want, just keep doing that.  Oh God, yes.”

“That’s not my name, Scully.”

“Okay, fuck…yes…oh my God, Fox, yessssssssss.”

“See?  Was that so hard, Dana?”

“Shut up, Mulder.  Wipe that stupid smile off your face.”

“Welllllll…Did you like it?”

“Did you?”

“Absolutely.  I could listen to you say my name all day.”

“What a difference seven years and biblical knowledge of each other’s bodies makes.”

“Do it again.”

“Fox.”

“One more time.”

Der Fuchs.”

“Oooo, I’m getting turned on now.  Is that my name or is that what you wanna do to me?”

“Yes.”

“Yes to which ques-…Oh…oh, Scully.  I mean, Dana.  I like where your head’s at.  Literally and figuratively.”

“Vmmppssmmpff.”

“It’s not polite to talk with your mouth full, Dana.  Ow, Scully!  No biting!”

“Vulpem pilum mutat, non mores.”

“Now you’re just showing off.  Ohhhh my God, you feel amazing.”

“Mmmhmmm.”

“Le renard…Ugh, Jesus, fuck that’s good…le renard couchant ne capture…Oh, God Scully…pas de volaille.”

“Who’s showing off now?”

“Not showing off, just trying to make it…Yes, baby, oh GOD, that feels so good…make it last…  Aggghhhhhhh ffffuuuuccckkkkk…Scully, I’m so…You gotta st-…I’m gonna…”

“Mmmmm.”

“Jeeeeeeesus Christ, Scully…oh fuck…AGHHHH!”  

“Hmmmmm…you’re welcome.”

“Scully, that was…I mean, that was…”

“You’re adorable when you’re incoherent.”

“Have I told you lately how much I love you?”

“Just last night, actually.  You are remarkably effusive after sex.  Especially after I do that thing with my tongue.”

“I really mean it, Dana.  I love you.”

“I know, Mulder.  I love you, too.”

“No, now, Scully, try again.  And don’t roll your eyes at me.  I just love the way you say it.”  

“Fine.  Fox…I love you, too.”

“Atta girl.  Now get over here and let me see if I can make you say my name again.”

xxxxx

A/N II:  Scully says “Fox” in German (der Fuchs), then in Latin, “The fox changes his fur but not his ways.”  Mulder responds in French, “The sleeping fox catches no poultry,” a quote from Benjamin Franklin.
