MagellanTuesdays at 7:00pm in August on KPJK TV in the South Bay.

Magellan is an long-running detective series, set in the fictional city of Saignac and starring Jacques Spiesser as the titular commissaire, Simon Magellan. It was created by Laurent Mondy (who also created the cop show Cordier), and if there's ever been a more charming police detective on any television show in any country, I don't know about him. Mon Dieu, this guy. (Repeats at 11:00pm)
