Sadly not a rewarding watch if you've seen the French original "Call My Agent!/Dix Per Cent" - as they've just rehashed the original plots with English actors and the odd tweek. As a result its impossible to watch without a huge sense of 'deja vu.'

Would have been much more interesting if they'd kept the premise and played with the characters and invented new plots reflecting the UK industry.

It was decently enough made and the cast were fine, though I expected a big, big star in the opener. Overall I'd agree with other reviewers - why remake a classic if you're not bringing anything new to the party?

Vive le France! For me.

The French original (Call my agent/Dix percent) had humour and strong characters. This British retread needs to pull itself together. Set near Tottenham Court Road, there is an attempt to recreated the lavishness of Paris. Which almost works given the lack of wide boulevards.

However the first episode of the French series also had to up their game. So I hope it gets better. One thing is that the French series seemed to have distinct actors. However the cast here seem to blend into each other. All a very bland ensemble.

After two episodes, this is a middling to poor offering. The sprinkling of big names with empty parts, Helena Bonham Carter and Olivia Williams, does not rescue this from the poorly written and totally fragmented plot.

Hiftu Quasem (Misha) and Fola Evans-Akingbola (Zoe) give strong performances, especially in episode two, and some of the outside camera work is good.

An over ambitious attempt that falls flat, being neither as funny nor as sophisticated as it purports to be.

This popped up as we opened Amazon. We thought we'd give it a whirl (there's not much on UK TV at present (unless you are into cookery, reality TV, Z listers either hosting a quiz or taking part in some show, shopping, losing weight, looking for long lost family, looking for property in the UK or abroad.. There are NO decent dramas or comedies).

Anyway. We watched the first episode and it was OK. We only watched the second episode to see the progress of Misha in her job. Sadly, the attempts at humour are just too much and are either cringeworthy or fall flat. It really doesn't work. It seems to be trying hard to mimic W1 and 2012 (with Hugh Bonneville), even down to the infatuated secretary 'no probem' and the characters finishing each other sentences or saying 'yes', or 'right', before the other person has finished speaking.

We get it that they'll be A list guests stars, but they could have been fictional and been funnier.

It's blatantly obvious who Misha is and we'd like to have followed it through, but half way through episode two we'd had enough. We both found the script and plot very annoying.

I'm a big fan of Call my agent so obviously I was attracted to see what the Brits would make of it!

But even with the similar setting, the same actors egos and dramas it's not as chirpy and well let's say it FRENCH ! The British cast is still to stiff to match the French original.

Good try though!

Being a fan of the original French version, I still wanted to give a chance to this remake.

I'm french but live in London, so I can relate to both shows.

First it's nice to see that they created diversity with actors. (On the french one they re all white...).

But unfortunately they changed something in the story line that change the effect on their purpose. In the UK version, the older agent is the son of the boss. So when his dad dies. It makes sense that he will take over his place.

In the french version, he's not his son. But he assume that he ll be next which annoy the other agents. Which make more sense on the competition between each other.

The set and location are realistic.

Other than that the story is similar so it's too predicament for me.

This tired rambling 1990s style of overacting is the reason people don't watch TV as much as TV wants them to. The original version is French which is supposed to be good, but who cares. This isn't.

The comedy is camp and unfunny. It relies on slapstick, over reactions and misunderstandings, which normally is the staple of great comedy, but these unoriginal and embarrassingly contrived situations are unbelievable and simply annoying. It's all hard to watch and displays a cringe factor that's off the charts.

It's also getting very annoying and distracting that there are obvious representations of every type of human being on the planet that are crowbarred into this ridiculous soap to appease the Gods of woke.

The biggest problem in TV drama though, is that actors think they're important, clever and have something to contribute to the arts and society. If they stayed away from the creative side of things and simply read their lines that had been commissioned by clever writers, the viewers would have a lot more good drama and comedy to choose from.

This decline in artistic standards began at the end of the 1980s and has continued to the present day. Ten Percent is forgettable dross that should never have been made.

Perhaps they should have gotten Ricky Gervais to write the UK version, it is after all essentially Extras from a different angle. Not quite as witty as that series.

tyeve 28 April 2022

The title of the review in Variety of this disappointing series said it perfectly: Ten Percent is "an Unnecessary Retread of the Source Material". If you watched the French original be sure to give this UK retread a pass. What's most irritating is that the only watchable character was played by Jim Broadbent. (You'll know why that's irritating if you watch the first episode. )

Watched the first two episodes since I am a fan of the original Call My Agent. The concept is fine, but the writers just copied the French show: same story, same characters so if you have seen the original, you very quickly figure out what will happen. They even chose actors that look like generally look like the characters in the French original. It also lacks the wit of the original.

There are lots of reviews here comparing this British version of France's original series Dix pour cent (Call my agent) and perhaps that series is far better than this version. I however did not see the original and cannot judge whether it truly is better or just the original which, if previously seen, could lead to a feeling of "I've seen it all before" and "It's not original" in some viewers of the earlier offering. For myself I found this British version completely addictive - I watched all 8 episodes in one day and was left wanting more - sir please? The situations the characters find themselves in are at times annoying and I did become frustrated with their incessant "Yes" but it is in the main extremely entertaining and superbly acted all round. I will survive but I am a but annoyed at now having to wait for a second season. I want the producers to say "Yes. We hear you. Great idea. So exciting. Well of course yes and here you go. Off you go now and enjoy season 2. Yes.'

This is an English language show filmed in England with English speaking actors. But you wouldn't know it because I can't understand a word they're saying on the most part. I need to turn on close captioning in english subs when watching shows like this. They are either mumbling in their thick English accents, or the sound man and editor fail to understand that they are not the ears of intention. The audience may not be from England so do not understand thick accents, mumblings and poor audio quality that we guess is acceptable in England.
