Taxi 0-22 season 1 (1998)
Comedy series — online on 9 July
What memories ! The first season of Taxi 0-22 has been distributed, there are more than twenty years, but it is also always hilarious. In this cult series, the actor and comedian Patrick Huard plays the role of the cab driver Rogatien Dubois Jr. a worker who has no language in his pocket. Between his comments on the news and its philosophies a bit fofolles, but full of common sense, we do not get bored !
P.S. : For the little story, the character of Rogatien is first born on stage during the comedy shows, of Patrick Huard.
In any case, season 1 (2018)

In this production, we find the actors Guylaine Tremblay and Anne-Élisabeth Bossé in the role of a mother and a daughter whose complex relationship that gives rise to many and hilarious misunderstandings ! While Chloé (Anne-Élisabeth Bossé, whose series is the original idea) is seeking the great love, her mother tries to get closer to her offspring, both good and bad.

In this first series-reality produced by Club illico, it follows the journey of five young people from all over Québec who want to realize their dream : moving to Montreal.
