What's on tv

This weekend will see the wrap-up of the 2015 Tour de France with the customary final stage finishing on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. But the big news on the cover of our program this week is the making of six new episodes of the X-Files. Scully and Mulder are coming back.

And the E! channel is showing Caitlyn Jenner's show. You'd think that there were no French tv shows.

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.

Debbie Gibson and Tiffany. Which one plays the python and which one plays the 'gator? I'll never find out. But the entry is worthy just to see, in print, the feminine form of the past participle of the verb créer (to create): créée [cray-yay].

Mega Python vs Gatoroïd. American made-for-tv movie. Directed by Mary Lambert, 2011.
With Deborah Gibson and Tiffany.
A new species of giant python invades the Everglades National Park. A line of mutant alligators is created to fight it.
A collection of everything bad in one movie. The special effects fail, the actors and actresses are very bad, and the script is ridiculous.
For adults and children over 12.
