Every week, The Press scans the TV offer to identify four titles to watch.


The novelty : Fleishman Is in Trouble

We were eagerly awaiting this new series, in particular because of the trio of actors it stars, Jesse Eisenberg, Claire Danes and Lizzy Caplan. Are we 100% convinced after watching two episodes? No. The television adaptation of Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s novel (in French, Fleishman is in trouble) however gives us enough good promises for us to continue the adventure. On the script side, let’s say we’re telling the story of a recently divorced 41-year-old father who reconnects with his old friends as he discovers the joys of dating apps. It’s extremely wordy (think old Woody Allen comedies), but surprisingly addictive.

30 years ago, Manon Rhéaume became the first woman to play in the NHL. To highlight this feat, RDS devotes a full episode of Trajectories, a documentary series focusing on the careers of former hockey players. Premiered on Friday, the one-hour program revisits the path strewn with pitfalls of the Quebec athlete, who has suffered her share of pernicious criticism. “From the comments that were made about me today, these people would lose their job “, Says the ex-goalkeeper. We remember his two gold medals at the world championships, his silver medal at the Olympic Games and, above all, his strength of character.
