    Icon4 Jo/Le Grand TV series ... Law & Order Criminal Intent character appears in episode 8

    I don't know when the new TV series Jo (or perhaps called Le Grand in Europe), starring Jean Reno, will air in North America (ION is being sued for dropping out of the North American deal), but I just wanted to mention that the final 8th episode of the first season will pick up a storyline involving one of the characters from Law & Order: Criminal Intent. That character will also appear in the episode.

    Since Canadian-born producer and showrunner for various Law & Order shows, Rene Balcer, is also behind the new Jo series, it's not surprising that some of the cast from those Law & Order shows also appear in Jo.

    Jill Hennessy plays a nun in Jo, and Sam Waterston has a guest appearance in one of the later episodes (also nothing to do with his Law & Order character).

    Most of the Jo episodes fall flat, and even the 8th episode began to fall apart towards the end, thus leaving me unsatisfied overall.

    Jo is filmed in Paris, but ALL the characters speak English (although the series will be dubbed for foreign markets).

    You can find all 8 episodes of Jo online (in various places), but don't expect them to be of Law & Order quality.

    I'd give Season 1 of Jo a fairly weak 6/10. I would also guess that the series might eventually pop up on Super Channel, TMN, or perhaps Showcase, but I haven't read anything that would confirm my hunch.

    Icon14 Comme Un Chef movie tastes good enough to eat!

    By the way, if you're a fan of Jean Reno, or happen to enjoy movies about food, you'll probably enjoy the family-friendly French movie (2012): Comme Un Chef (aka: The Chef). You can find it online in various places for free, or if you don't like "stealing," you can always buy it (amazon.ca has it on sale for only $10).

    It's predictable in places, but is still filled with enough quality to entertain most viewers. Imdb viewers (4458 of them) only rate it a 6.5/10, but that seems a bit harsh. It should be more like a solid 7/10 at the worst, however, some might think it deserves an 8/10 like I do.
