Any French speakers here, like me?
Before Jean Dujardin was in The Artist, he starred in this ridiculously funny French television show (in English, "A Guy, A Girl"). Yes, his co-star is Alexandra Lamy, his in-real-life wife. The series ran from 1999-2003, had over 500 episodes, and premiered right before the 6 PM French news. Here's an episode called "At the Grocery Store."
