The Devil’s Lot | Rehabilitations settlers!

Settlers have been clearing the spas of Quebec reality shows since 2003, a pivotal year when Double occupancy: Blainville the recruit his first specimens of rustic and simple-minded men, 100% always feverish at the idea of ​​exploring the unceded territory of the all-inclusive.

It passes, settlers, in a season of OD, from the worst sided to the backlog endearing in its ignorance. And the Martinican cuvée of Noovo was particularly abundant in terms of uneducated males, Mr. Big who pump their biceps more than they work their gray matter.

The settler featured in the excellent reality show The devil’s lot of the Historia chain, which starts selling at 8:00 p.m. at the same time as the Plus Series, falls into a much more prosperous category than that propelled by OD🇧🇷

Deprived of running water and electricity, the settler devil’s lot survives on resourcefulness, cunning, and a few Dominion dollars.

He insulates the walls of his cabin in Canada with sphagnum moss freshly pulled from the tree trunk. He knows how to smoke out a porcupine’s den to capture it and then skewer it. And he does not complain about his directly on the cold and wet ground, between two roots of conifers and three large pointed rocks.

After the Abitibi forest of the Great Depression, the popular reality show of Historia, which failed viewing records in 2017, recreated a Paspébiac fishing bank in 1934. The 16 brave competitors of the second season of the Devil’s Bundle: Conquest of the Sea live there as in those harsh times when the “zarzais” — the Anglo-Normans of the island of Jersey — controlled the cod trade in Gaspésie.

The first episode roundly introduces the “characters” who will work hard to collect the grand prize of $100,000. These 16 competitors come from all over Quebec and practice unnecessary trades associated with survivalism in the forest: hairdresser, antique dealer, civil servant, specialized educator, teacher, beekeeper, firefighter, kinesiologist, researcher or nurse. Obviously, the candidates who have dabbled in carpentry-joinery share a head start in this production halfway between Survivor and Caleb’s daughters🇧🇷

more at devil’s lot, as in any reality show activated on the competition, the big heads risk decapitation and the links fall by the wayside. Quickly in the game, we start to hate settlers with strong personalities, including one with the character of “little Germaine” and another frankly unpleasant and impulsive, who grumbles against the genetics of “eating shit” of his team. Not the friendliest of methods.

We also rail against the idlers who rest near the campfire instead of climbing the walls of their “cook room”, a typical Gaspé cottage that serves as a kitchen and dormitory for participating fishermen.

Louis Champagne in his role as colony inspector

As in the first chapter of devil’s lot, the actor Louis Champagne resumes his role as inspector of the colony. It is he who oversees the progress of the 16 colonists, separated into two distinct factions, that of the rock and that of the cliff. Our inspector-animator is just severe enough during council meetings, where eliminations take place, between misery, sea and cod.

No element The devil’s lot takes us back to the history of rural Quebec, plus, in addition, it sets up a captivating dynamic of alliances and strategies to grab the loot. It’s very well done. The opening scene, in the form of a tour sequence shot, even evokes The countries above.

The owner of the general manager, Marguerite Turgeon, has renewed the art of carrying a job in the office of a counter in Port-Daniel. Coffee, nails, macaroni, fish hooks and flour, these precious articles are expensive, and Marguerite does not sell them off in exchange for a pair of sweet eyes.

Pro tip, here: program and record the ten episodes of the devil’s lot, even if it means watching them later. Because the Historia or Series Plus catch-up methods really don’t reach the efficiency of a Crave or a Tou.TV, let’s face it.

The ADISQ resuscitation gala

Out of 677,000 viewers in 2021, the audience for Radio-Canada’s ADISQ gala dates back to 1,010,000 people during the day. This significant increase brought the Quebec music festival back to the levels measured in 2020 (1,015,000) and 2019 (1,230,000).

With a full galvanized room, crinkly craftsmen, a Louis-José Houde in great shape and the disappearance of the withdrawal measures, the stars were aligned so that the ceremony would be low-cut. The pre-gala co-piloted by Isabelle Racicot and Nicolas Ouellet (understand: the red carpet) to hold the attention of 609,000 salon music.

On the other hand, two hot TVA shows were more popular than the ADISQ gala on Sunday, namely singing masks (1,650,000) etc revolution (1,207,000). At Noovo, the latest episode ofDouble occupancy Martinique was seen by 461,000 fans, who will find themselves reading OD daily from November 14. Do you show yourselves “jostling” with emotion like Clémence, alias Blue dress, alias Jinx?
