The well-watched Frenchie

It isn’t hard to imagine how American television infiltrated France, just as much of American culture has been thrust upon the rest of the free world. But those Frenchies have made our TV shows their own.

You will be completely delighted by the French Dallas theme song:

Pour l’amour du risque (that would be Hart to Hart to us English speakers):

Starsky et Hutch:

Fraggle Rock:

Then there are several which have fabulously adorable names. See if you can guess what they are, then click on the links to see if you got it right:

Interestingly, France wasn’t blessed with one of my personal favorites, Family Ties:

And we didn’t get to watch such Frenchie classics as Hélène et les garçons:

What other American shows were popular in France? I hope you’ll write in and add to the list!

  1. Listed shows are a bit old, non?

    A la mode, Heroes, Prison Break, Weeds, Grey’s anatomy, Dexter, Stargate Alantis, Rome (season 1), Desperate Housewives

    Those are the most watched in my campus :p

  2. Dear CA RO, I think I am a bit older than you! A lot of these shows were shows I watched when I was a gamine… Dallas, Crosiere s’amuse, makes me très nostalgique!

  3. Wow I wish I could listen to those theme songs! I’ll bet they’re a hoot! (My boss would probably fire me if he caught me singing along to the french version of Fraggle Rock – possible the best show ever)
