Critic Reviews for Call My Agent! Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

"Call My Agent!" is polished to a high shine and features the best as-themselves cameos.

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Refreshingly, the agents often fight for art over money, and mostly collaborate rather than indulge in back-stabbing.

Sep 10, 2018 | Full Review…

What is striking about the storyline is the sympathy expressed for both the actor and the agent.

Mar 5, 2018 | Full Review…

As it turns out, even cool French girls have to deal with sexism.

Nov 2, 2017 | Full Review…

What makes the series click beyond its film-industry satire is the chemistry among the agency's employees.

Jan 10, 2017 | Full Review…

The series is set in a bustling Paris-based talent agency representing some of the top actors in French film and TV. A perfect excuse, then, to fill weekly guest spots with French actors playing fictionalised versions of themselves.

Apr 19, 2021 | Full Review…

It helps that the storylines are engrossing, that the scripts are witty and that the four central characters are so sharply defined and well played that you're eager to spend time in their company.

Feb 4, 2018 | Full Review…

It distinguishes itself by getting its focus right.

Audience Reviews for Call My Agent!: Season 1

  • May 03, 2021
    I never thought I'd love a French comedy with subtitles, but this show is great. Superb acting, and whoever talks actual actors into playing themselves comically should get one heck of a bonus!
  • Mar 31, 2021
    Such a great storyline and very original, too. The cameos from the real movie and music stars playing an exacerbated version of themselves is pure genius. The acting from the main cast is superb! Love, love, love!
  • Mar 26, 2021
    Such a great series. Comedy and drama with brilliantly sharp writing.
  • Feb 27, 2021
    I have watched all of the seasons now and do believe that the first season is the best. The fact that Camille was the focus of the first season episodes made it most relatable as she was an outsider trying to make it in the world of film and TV, while trying to get closer to her father. I so wish the writers would have focused on her more throughout the series. We did not get to see her really develop as a full character as she became more and more a secondary plot-line. However, overall, all 4 seasons are worth the effort of reading all of those subtitles. It was very difficult at times as the French people often speak very quickly and the reading is hard to keep up with. I am sad to see it end as I very much enjoyed the many scenes in Paris, and I even saw a site, that I am sure very few Americans would not recognize-Bassin de la Villette and the Crimée Bridge is one.

    The balance between art and comedy is genius. I love their use of exquisite language, creativity, and facial expression as the means to deliver funny emotional content. I hadn't laughed with a show in a while. I love their taste in architecture, fashion, and human aesthetics (gorgeous and genuine actors/actresses). I loved that there were no inflammatory statements or political propaganda in the first few seasons. Not sure when Netflix bought it or if it has a say on the content, but Netflix tends to be good at buying good series and transforming their plot into gay drama. Somehow, it didn't bother me the first few seasons. They were good at making a point of the statistical social and health issues that sexuality choices produce. Hervé became a bit flamboyant toward the end and I wondered if that was the actor or netflix or me being paranoid about the show being bought by netflix. It was simply more natural initially. I wish there were a way of finding these European shows before netflix buys them and changes their essence... if you think of something, please do it.

    Funny and charming, everything Emily in Paris was not.
  • Feb 04, 2021
    This season is really just fantastic and is a great introduction My grade: 9.5/10
  • Feb 03, 2021
    This is perhaps the one single thing that has made me laugh the most during the pandemic!! Phenomenal writing, phenomenal acting, literally never a dull moment.
  • Jan 27, 2021
    Frequently saw this listed as one of the best series on Netflix, but was worried by the low number of reviews given it being in French. Finally gave it a try and was one of the best comedies I've seen recently. Every episode in S1 had several laugh very hard moments in them, which is so seldom the case. Definitely glad I gave this one a try.

    Excellent show - very addictive
