The final chapter on a great series !
31 May 2003 | by RealLiveClaudeSee all my reviews

One of the few series who scored good with an excellent and moving story, "Scoop" concludes in a good way...

Victim of an helicopter accident, newspaper magnate Emile Rousseau (Claude Leveille) is now paraplegic and unable to move, needing a bodyguard (Pierre Chagnon) to help him move around. Though he is still able to speak, hear and think, his life has become useless... With the help of his friend Vezina (Raymond Bouchard), he passes away in a strange way...

Which makes way for his daughter, Stephanie (Macha Grenon), to investigate his shady past through a computer program... She discovers things she never expected, like her dad having a mistress (Andree Champagne) who gave birth to a half-sister, Odile (Chantal Fontaine), a detail that her mom Louise (Andree Lachapelle), shut her eyes because she loved her husband so much...

But personnal findings are not the only burden of Stephanie: she still is the boss of the "Scoop", which trails far from its competitors and losing money. Especially dealing with the ego of Charles Dumoulin (Rene Gagnon) who wants to do an expensive trip for a big article, but as the expenses are tight, he faces a big no and wanders around in the office. And Tintin (Martin Drainville) is in grief of his dead wife, killed on assignment in Ottawa and has a hard time to go over. Only the love of Alex (Joelle Morin), might save him. To save the newspaper, Stephanie must risk to step down and give the job to the accountant (Sophie Lorain), whose decisions are way more over the edge and dissatisfies some of the staff who leaves the place...

And becoming the head of Roussac, the magnate who controls the "Scoop" and "L'Express", Stephanie has to face the harsh Board of Administrators, whose one member, Laurier Gregoire (Jacques Godin, who plays in some style reminescent of the late Vincent Price), is mad enough to go way over the boundaries to get rid of her...

And Michel Gagne (Roy Dupuis) in her life ? Since he is part of the Rousseau conglomerate, he feels trapped in this wealthy world, where his girlfriend Stephanie and his son Francis are now inheritors of a big fortune, fearing he's left aside. And wants to get somewhat away from that reclusive and over-protection climate that shields his thirst for adventure abroad... He must too make a choice...

Won't spoil the fun here, but the ending is enigmatic enough that we might wonder what happens next...

Thanks for four great seasons of a roller-coaster mini-series like Scoop, well acted and written, which brought out most of Quebec's talented actors out on the spotlight !
