The novelty : Sandy

Directed by Alexandre Pelletier (family councils), who co-wrote the screenplay with Guillaume Harvey, this new webseries consists of six 10-minute episodes that we ran through in one go. Unfortunately current comedy thriller, Sandy paints the portrait of Sandrine (Fanny Mallette, ever so beautiful), an aspiring artist and cider house manager in Montérégie, who finds a TV presenter’s (Solid Rémi-Pierre Paquin) tablet. The plot takes an unexpected turn when the heroine, while exploring the device’s contents, discovers that the comedian hides a dark side, far removed from the image of the sympathetic settler monocle he projects in public…

The return : Industry

series Industry plunges us into a world of sex, drugs and finance.

Industry (Industry in English) is not a really good series, but for some reason we have been waiting for this second season with great impatience. The first episode of the American-British drama (HBO-BBC co-production) plunges us back into the “Sex, Drugs and Finance” universe of ambitious young bankers after just a few seconds, as a character gorges on a can of Coke in the middle of a nightclub . The rest of the hour is reminiscent of the first season at every turn: sex scenes without much introduction, betrayals, clashes, tensions, etc. All the action revolves around the same trio of best enemies Harper (Myha’la Herrold), Yasmin ( Marisa Abela) and Rob (Harry James C Lawtey).

Crave – A new episode every Monday at 9pm in English. French episodes will air Tuesdays at 10 p.m. from August 9.

Quebecer Felix Auger-Aliassime

TVA Sports goes into tennis mode this week with the Montreal National Bank Open welcoming men this year, notably Félix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov. The two star players have endured their share of troubles in recent months. Hopefully they’ll use the Canadian tournament to shake off their lethargy. As for the forces present at TVA Sports, Frédérique Guay will host alongside Richard Legendre, while Félix Séguin will describe the games with Marie-Ève ​​​​​​Pelletier. TVA Sports 2 presents the women’s counterpart of the tournament in Toronto, with Frédéric Lord and Vincent Destouches on the mic. Don’t have TVA Sports? Note that TVA is exceptionally broadcasting the men’s games on Wednesday nights.

The River of the Sixth Day will be featured on MAX.

Like all critics, you come out of the cinema disappointed after you’ve typed high speed train (fast train), Brad Pitt’s freshly released action comedy? Chase away that painful moment by watching one of three 1990s movies starring the American actor that MAX is presenting. The correction (sleeper) by Barry Levinson (Saturday at 10pm) is an excellent choice. Same for Thelma and Louise, the Ridley Scott classic starring Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon (Sundays at 2pm). But we prefer historical dramas The River of the Sixth Day (A river flows through it). Directed by Robert Redford, this superb adaptation of Norman Maclean’s semi-autobiographical novel is just as enjoyable to watch 30 years later.

MAX, Saturday at midnight
