1) Traditionally shows made outside of the US or US co-productions go in "TV Shows: UK", but it's ambiguous so you're fine.
2) Yes, when dams are built, reservoirs are created, and quite often the reservoirs will flood settlements. The financial benefits of the hydroelectric power and water supply, far outweigh the cost of relocation, so normally they just relocate nearby settlements. And demolishing the old settlement is kinda pointless since it makes no difference whether it's down there or not, so they wouldn't have bothered.

I've asked for it to be moved to cult/scifi....

I think the town is going to play a big part in the rest of the series

Don't quite know how to respond to that, having seen all the episodes, I could tell you, but I doubt you want to know...

Watched Episode 6 last night. Poor Lena. She seems to be going from one disaster to the other Will see ever get home?

Her parents dont seem too bothered about her disapearance considering that the last time she was seen see had a massive gash on her back.

Whats with the psychic girl who was shagging Simon? Can she only see dead people when she is shagging somebody

I think so - in the same way that he made Julie (and the neighbour, presumably) see Serge. We know Julie tried to stab herself with scissors at that time, and the neighbour stabbed herself. I'm wondering what would have happened to Pierre if the poilcewoman and Julie hadn't shown up.....

Also has anyone else noticed the age warnings at the beginning of the episodes on youtube (obviously set by the TV channel as they're part of the programme)? Episode 6 - "advised against for under age 10" - I should hope so!!!!!! Seriously though, who would let a kid watch it!?!?!?

It's a legal requirement on French TV, the logo has to stay up all the time, with the accompanying text required to stay up for a couple of minutes as well.

Bear in mind, the French are more liberal with films and TV, it's not uncommon to see films achieve a 15 here and a U in France or an 18 here and a 12 in France. Very rarely will the French restrict anything to adult only, Hostel Part III and A Serbian Film being the only notable examples of recent...

I don't think it is, whilst I probably wouldn't show it to a 12, there's nothing in the series that would be particularly shocking or upsetting to mature 13 year old...

Even the supposed gratuitous graphic assault from the first episode, is probably acceptable at a 12A. It's possible some of the Victor hallucinations might be an issue, and there's one episode with a few more f words than the BBFC would normally pass, but other than that it's probably fine at a 12

I loved it. It didn't really answer any questions though, but it is so beautifully filmed that I found I didn't really mind.

Spoiler


I ordered the dvd set which will be released in September.

The website is really good. Has anyone else explored it?
