For the past couple of weeks, my husband and I have looked with especial anticipation to the quiet time after dinner, after the last walk of the day, to fire up the Apple TV and tune into the French series, The Bureau. Amazon Prime got us hooked by making the first season available to watch for free. It was so good that we splashed out for a Sundance Now subscription just to watch Seasons 2, 3, 4, and 5.
The series centers around a small group within a larger espionage agency whose focus, at least for the seasons we've seen so far, is the Middle East. The location filming is impressive, the characters engaging, the acting top-notch, and the storylines - though far-fetched here and there - are riveting. We are finicky television and movie consumers and can turn fickle on a dime (witness: The Wire), but three seasons into The Bureau, we are still glued to the set.
