  1. OMG Yes!!!! Perfect timing!! I just binge watched almost the entire French series on DVD (still have S3 to go) before going to Montreal and I just got back from there and want to go back and I was thinking of doing the same for the English version but I thought at first meh because the French version is a lot better plus there are some plot differences but if they are showing it on CTV instead of cable that means I can see so I guess I will go ahead and binge watch en anglais anyway as prep for a return visit for the next long weekend!! BTW I’m a purist I still wish they subtitled the original so everyone could see the QC cast but maybe it was too risqué lol. Gendron is the most entertaining character in the anglo version. JM Brouillard is as much of a [thing I won’t print here] in both official languages.
