What's on tv

Patrick Bruel is my age. He's been around for a while, but I first became aware of him in the early nineties when he had is first number one song and album. He appealed then to adolescent girls, mostly, and I suspect his fan base is these same women, and now, their daughters. His career has been very successful and he's branched out into acting as well as singing. This week, we are treated to a recording of his symphonic concert from back in January. Yawn.

Get ready for the summer's series, just 24 hours after they're shown in the US!

What NOT to watch this week. Our tv magazine rates shows and movies using a star system: one star is ok, four stars is best. They use another symbol for really bad movies: the red dot. It means "à zapper" (change the channel!). The editors often include comments about the movie that make me laugh.

Another disaster of a disaster movie. That photo up there is supposedly of Dean Cain.

Airplane vs volcano. American made-for-tv movie. Directed by James Kondelik, 2014.
With Dean Cain, Matt Mercer, Morgan West, and Robin Givens.
An airliner flys over an active zone of volcanoes and, not being able to land, becomes trapped in the air. Unable to escape, the passengers and crew try to survive.
Just like the screenplay and the special effects, Dean Cain's performance is a failure.
For adults and children over 10.
