A Very Secret Service - Netflix TV show
« on: August 09, 2018, 07:41:40 PM »
Anyone else watched this? It's into the 2nd series, it's a French comedy with English subtitles set in a Government department in the early 60s and worth a look for the beautiful set designs. Some lovely suits as well.
And will you shorten the sleeves, love? I'm not a gorilla.

Not seen it mate but may have a look. There is also that French 007 spoof series of films with a character called 117. Set in late 50s/early 60s and the fella in it looks the absolute business. Very much like how 007 was often drawn on book covers and stuff before Connery gave him physical form in the movies.

Thanks for the heads up ... took the month's trial on Netflix so I could watch this and am really enjoying it, I'm currently half way through the first series (I'm loving the running gag about Merlaux's suit ;) )

Watched 3 episodes last night, good stuff. The instalment about african countries seeking for their independence is hilarious and very un-pc (which is a huge bonus). Clothes and set designs are terrific too.

As mentioned by Martin, if you've not seen them then the two OSS 117 films,  Cairo, Nest of Spies and Lost in Rio, are well worth a look; similar style and sense of un-PC humour

They won't be so easy to find, I guess (my other half talked me into Netflix some months ago), but I put them on my list of "must-watch", Ady, thanx.
