9. "100% no hate but this was definitely made for the international market"
In response to In response to 0



it's not as corny as some of the other France-based Netflix stuff (eg Emily in Paris) but something about it felt a bit over-explainy, which makes sense since I assume no one outside of France (and Japan, lol) had any clue about Arsene Lupin before this show came out.

Still overall this was a nice breezy watch, Omar Sy plays the different facets of his character really well and I dug the way the action was blended in with the more cerebral sides to his quest. The actor playing him young was also cast perfectly.

Kinda liked that they did a 5-episode drop, it's a nice compromise between the binge-inducing 12ep drops and the week-to-week model.

For the record, my teams:
MLB: Mets / Soccer: PSG
NCAA BB: Arizona / NCAA FB: Michigan
NBA: Spurs / NFL: Jets
