Plus Belle la Vie

Ahh, the French soapie! Plus Belle la Vie is set in Marseille, it follows the lives of … well, you know how soapies work!

There’s a fair bit of criminal activity in this one  – judging by Marseille’s reputation, I can’t help but wonder if it’s a case of art imitating life.

Somehow, it always ends up on at our place of a weeknight though…


Tchao tchao tchao!

One of my favourite shows here is ‘Tout le Monde Veut Prendre sa Place.’  It’s a quiz show, on every day around lunch time, and it’s a great way to practise my French!  The questions are shown on screen, and usually by the time I decipher them they’ve moved on, but every now and then I get one!

And look! There’s a board game!

The presenter, Naugi, is a real character. He ends every show with a catchy “tchao tchao tchao,” and Evan (Sim’s 2yo nephew) does a great impersonation of him. He’s the most popular presenter in France. Wonder if it’s because he’s so easy on the eyes..?
