Storyline

A historical soap opera set in Quebec's Laurentides in the late 19th century. In the growing settlement of Sainte-Adèle, a love triangle involving Séraphin Poudrier, the powerful but conniving and miserly mayor, Donalda Laloge-Poudrier, the woman forced into marrying him as payment for a family debt, and Alexis Labranche, the beau with whom she shares a deep love, quickly becomes a square once you include families and villagers, themselves facing their own daily dramas. One of the longest-running TV series in Canadian history, and one with considerable cultural importance as it pioneered the téléroman format (Quebec's version of "soap opera") and gave French-Canadians a set of idioms that marked generations, including its own version of "Scrooge" and all related expressions, like "You're nothing but a Séraphin" (T'es rien qu'un Séraphin). The series was written by Claude-Henri Grignon as an adaptation expanding on his own 1933 novel, "Un Homme et son péché" (lit. trans. "A man and his... Written by pdlussier1
