Les Détestables (Benidorm Bastards)

TV Series

Les Détestables (a European adaptation of Benidorm Bastards) is a hidden camera comedy show where the main characters are ten elderly people. They hit the streets with one purpose in mind: play pranks on young people. The show, Les Détestables (Benidorm Bastards), can be interpreted as a revenge of the elderly on the young.

The ten “Bastards” go after young people with pranks that are just as absurd as they are hilarious, leaving their victims dumbfounded. This show is living proof that the notion of third age is rather relative!
