I binged this over the weekend, and I really enjoyed except for the sound mixing. I got annoyed with the English dubbing when it did not sync with the action. It looks like the French cast filmed in English because the lips matched the dialog, but there were times when the tone was off. I wouldn't mind watching these episodes in their original French with subtitles instead of the dubbing. I hope the show takes the time to fix these issues with the next batch of episodes.
I did like the show leaned into the ugly after effects of French colonialism. The constant shock from white people when Assane showed up, "I didn't know you were....young, old, etc" when they meant black. And the journalist's whole rant about being a woman of a certain age was perfection.
