Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ten Percent, a British adaptation of the French hit Call My Agent!, offers lots of mature plot lines and innuendo, including narratives about infidelity and inappropriate relationships. There's lots of cursing (especially "f--k"), and drinking is frequently visible. Issues like ageism and sexism in the entertainment industry are also referenced.
Is It Any Good?
Much like its French counterpart, this British version combines humor with poignant moments to create a series with broad appeal. In addition to the eclectic ensemble of lead characters, the appearance of top British actors like Kelly McDonald, Helena Bonham Carter, and Dominic West make Ten Percent a fun watch. But it isn't as sharply written as the original, and those who enjoy Call My Agent! will note some of the cultural differences between the two, especially when it comes to the casting and the humor. Nonetheless, Ten Percent's premise still works, and offers lots of lively and entertaining moments that audiences will appreciate.
