I wouldn't go as far as to say it is low quality. It's pretty hard to have 3-4 guests every week and have every interview be quality. Like somebody mentioned earlier the quality of the show is in some way dependent on the participation of the guests. When guests are smart and actively participate in the interview process it can produce incredibly interesting shows and can get very controversial as well.

Honestly, Gérard Bouchard did a better job at interviewing Brière than Lepage.
Intelligence helps when giving an interview

By asking how he trains during the summer? You are easily pleased.

Like any edited show, the quality of the interviews depend on the willingness of the guests to answer the hard-hitting questions. The structure of an edited interview is that you start with the casual questions to make the guest comfortable and then you get into the more interesting stuff but if the guest refuses to answer, you can't show a 15min interview of Briere saying nothing so you show the boring stuff.

Guy A Lepage asked Briere why he signed with the Flyers instead of the Habs a couple of years ago and Briere declined to answer and that wasn't such a tough question. Who knows what else was asked and declined

My bad. I just assumed you were one of those people who just refuse to even integrate with the society they live in.
Knowing of this show is integrating into society? A little reach.

I only know of it because I caught some youtube clips and when people post it. If I didn't post on HF boards, I wouldn't know of it prob.

Honestly, it's almost like the Quebec equivalent of not knowing the existence of Oprah

I kind of understand Briere, tho. Like he said; even if he tried to explain it, that would just raise more questions and more criticism. People didn't wanted an explanation, they wanted to be mad at him.

Defending yourself openly when people just want to be mad at you never ends well.

Basically that. I am not saying "you should watch it". Hell, I don't even watch it anymore, myself.

But.. if you have lived for years in Quebec and yet never came across the existence of this show, or heard it mentionned, you should re-evaluate your level of integration.

I wouldn't say that knowing this show = integrating into society. On the other hand, I work in the field of scientific research in Montreal, we only speak english at work and about 2/3 of my colleagues are immigrants or foreign exchange students and since I'm the "local guy", I keep getting questions about the local culture (which I am glad to answer). The two most frequent topics are the rules of hockey and "who was that guy on TLMEP". I honestly have a hard time believing that you can be serious about learning on the culture of Montreal and/or Quebec without running into TLMEP.

Sure, I can understand his standpoint, but it still made for a boring interview. The biggest problem that I have is that appearing on TLMEP has become part of the standard PR tour of public personalities even if they don't have anything interesting to say.

I lol'd a bit. Found it strange. I haven't heard a single person speak of the show my entire life. Francophone, Anglophone, no one ever brought it up in person.

Like I said, I know of the show but hardly worried about my level of integration. My father watches French tv constantly and I bet he wouldn't have a clue. I really never ever ever heard anyone bring it up outside of here. I stumbled on a clip on YT at one point but that's about it. I honestly didn't even know the show's name for a while, just recognized the layout and host.

Strange is all I could say. I've worked at companies where I was the only Anglophone there(aka, 99.9% francophone) and I never heard anyone ever bring it up. I guess people obviously knew of it but didn't enjoy the show enough to spark a convo about it.

This thread is now about the level of integration of people into the Quebec culture.

Who is Daniel Briere?

I'm not sure but the intro song for him was fantastic. Everyone agrees.

FWIW, I hope a guy like briere goes on RDS or something when he retires. Remove some of the antichambre types and add some fresh voices who are relevant.

Now that the TLMEP set is ready for short people then maybe they can lower their set and cameras a bit and bring in Desharnais!

Same here, I guess some people here like to make a big deal about a tv show. Me not watching alot Quebec television helps too.

Seems Briere signed with the Flyers because he thought they had a better chance to win the cup.

Pretty sure similar money was on the table.

wow, this thread is awesome btw.
I'm a born and raised Montrealer , and I always wondered why I struggled to integrate into QC society. Now I know; it's because I've never heard of or watched TLMEP.

Pretty sure Bleu Nuit gives me QC cred though.
