1985 plot

The two best friends Marc and Franky embark on a career with the gendarmerie in the very turbulent eighties, when the Bende van Nijvel spreads terror by committing brutal robberies. The young recruits at the gendarmerie end up in the middle of an internal battle. Franky's sister Vicky is now studying law, where she sees her left-wing ideals collide with those of her brother.

Reviews & comments

After having seen the fifth episode, I can say that the series contains very good elements:

- good music

- many new faces, which only improves the viewing experience

- the constant feeling of threat

- good camera work

- use of real news footage, which makes the whole look very authentic

- real 80's atmosphere

- the fact that the Brussels dialect is nicely placed in the showcase

The only downside is that I'm missing some kind of common thread. However, there are still three episodes to go, so who knows, we as viewers will be pleasantly surprised

After the last episode, there appears to be a kind of common thread running through the series, especially the questions that main character Marc De Vuyst has continued to struggle with after the death of his father. I think that's the focus on that common thread after the first episode that fades into the background, only to come to the fore again in the last episode ...

A genius invention by the screenwriter is the explanation given to the mystery surrounding the bag of weapons found in 1986 in the Brussels-Charleroi canal near Ronquière. The twist in which Goffinard Goffinard suddenly comes to an end, feels like a Deus Ex Machina. However, it is a minor flaw that I would be happy to cover with the cloak of love.

I stick to my score of 4 out of 5. This series confirms again that the level of series in Flanders is much higher than the level of films
