French TV series, with English under-titling, of a modern day seminary. Issues are current and include illegal immigrants from Africa, homosexuality, Vatican-China differences over who should appoint local bishops, drug-spiked drinks, etc. It is nice to see daily life in Paris and some French villages. The story is very dramatic. The characters are a stereotypical bunch, chosen to add an interesting variety of people - a homosexual black, a left-wing priest, a right-wing priest, a proud bishop, conniving officials in the Vatican, a seminarian from the country, one from a weathly Parisian family, one who had been imprisoned for murder, a left-wing people's organizer, etc. These characters are all cardboard-thin personalities. Still the plotting is well-done, issues are presented fairly, religion is treated respectfully, although not in any depth, as social issues are the focus. I look forward to Seasons 2 and 3.
