‘The Bureau: Complete Season Two’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
When I reviewed season one of The Bureau I enjoyed the shows more realistic feel when it came to the French intelligence services. Now with the release of The Bureau: Complete Season Two the story continues, with Guillaume Debailly (Mathieu Kassovitz) once again trying to pull the wool over his colleague’s eyes.

Still connected with the CIA, Debailly is now working with them as a double agent. Fulfilling their requests he does so at risk to himself, and to his colleagues as his web of lies grows ever bigger. Will he be caught out, or will he manage to play both sides against each other?

‘The Bureau: Complete Season One’ Review

  • Nerdly
The fictional world of espionage is normally presented to us in the form of people like James Bond where it’s all about action and seducing beautiful women. The Bureau: Complete Season One though gives us a more realistic and deadly interpretation based on real accounts from the French Intelligence Service.

When intelligence officer Guillaume Debailly (Mathieu Kassovitz) returns to Paris after an extended undercover mission in Syria he finds it hard to reconnect to his past life. This is further complicated by the appearance of an old love interest from Syria, Nadia (Zineb Triki) who he reconnects with, putting both himself and her and danger.

The Bureau is a very procedural show and everything is taken seriously. While we mainly follow Debailly’s story, we also follow the stories of two other agents. One is that of new requite Marina Loiseau (Sara Giraudeau) and another, who has disappeared in strange circumstances.
