The 7 part black dramedy follows the comical exploits of four gigolos, the Callboys, while testosterone-driven management, petty arguments and deaf-mute ambition make their short-lived business crash and burn.
Ça va...Ça va...Ça va... Ça va...Ça va...Ça va...Ça va...Ça va...Ça va......
After 2 episodes I had trouble concentrating myself on the story! I was just waiting till another one of the characters would ask or say 'ça va' and get the same answer. Now as this means 'everything ok' there are plenty of alternatives or other options in dutch for this annoying french 'ça va'. But it seems the writers had no inspiration at all. I imagine Paul Baeten Gronda and Tom Lenaerts while writing or meeting, asking each other hundreds of times 'ça va...ça va...ça va...'. And after watching the 10 episodes I can only answer 'ça ne va pas'! I have never seen or read any story in which all of the protagonists act this illogical and stupid.
With his friend Bart De Pauw, Tom Lenaerts made some innovating television. Now that Bart has 'disappeared' after accusations of sexual intimidation it's up to Tom Lenaerts to make some new exciting television. But after turning 50 seems he has completely lost it.
The second season of 'Over Water' has been filmed yet. I'm looking forward to count how many 'ça va's' will be in it. In the end it's the only fun thing in this TV-show. So if this ever comes on Netflix, and you have the opportunity to watch it, do so with a couple of friends and cheer each time you hear a 'ça va', ça va?
