The novelty : my first house
my first house intended to appeal to fans of documentary series and renovation or decoration shows. This new Canal Vie offer analyzes the move of Mélissa Bédard, who is leaving her small rented semi-detached house to pursue her dream of buying her first property with her husband Karl and, above all, their six children (three girls, three boys ). The first episode, which aired last week, had a particularly touching scene as the singer cried in front of the lens and said how proud she is of herself and especially of her efforts to save money. This week we meet Joanie, her best friend and site manager, who will be helping designer Antoine Laurier to customize her new home to her liking.

The dice roll: Queens
Granted, ABC canceled this show after a single 13-episode season due to insufficient ratings… But we still enjoyed watching it soap de luxe, which tells the story of four ex-members of a popular 1990s band, aptly named Nasty Bitches, who decide to make their “big” comeback. However, this reunion proves to be more complicated than expected: rivalries flare up again, old wounds fester and so on. Queens didn’t revolutionize anything, hence his zero pick at the next Emmy Awards. However, the French version might entertain you and become your pleasure, especially as it features two former R&B stars, Eve and Brandy.

The last : There are people at the fair
Christian Bégin ends the sixth season of talk show Spring-Summer of Télé-Québec with comedian Phil Roy, Quebec Mayor Bruno Marchand (who explains how his philosophy studies help him today), rapper and presenter Marième, pioneer of hip-hop in Quebec, and France D ‘Amour, which revisits their greatest hits. Musically, the host welcomes Élage Diouf, who started in the spring Wutiko, his third album recorded entirely in Wolof, his native language from Senegal. Are you one of the Yammeux and Yammeuses (nickname for the show’s faithful apostles) who might miss this fall’s weekly meetup? Know that a special Christmas program is brewing for December.

In the aftermath: DD Mary — death by prescription
Did you miss this English-Canadian series when it first aired on Global in 2017-2019? It’s your lucky day. The French version lands on MAX this week. In this darkly humorous drama/thriller, Caroline Dhavernas plays a single mother who leads a double life: she’s a doctor by day… and a criminal by night as she illegally helps her patients die. This is a rich and complex role for the Quebec actress-who has dubbed herself. The first episode pulls us right into the action from the start when Mary arrives at the home of an ex-football player suffering from what we assume is a terminal illness.
MAX, starting Thursday at 8 p.m
