How To Seduce The Sherlock Of The 1700s

We haven’t been paying attention to “Nicolas Le Floch,” but now that the fifth season premiere of this beloved French detective show has placed a special new flame in his life, we might have to spend some time catching up. This Nicolas ain’t no sexless Sherlock Holmes, he’s a ladies’ man, and he’s just met his match.

You see the way she leaves his bed in the morning? Aimee d’Arranet (Norah Lehembre) allows his hands to cup her breasts, but she doesn’t acknowledge them, she just slips away with the sheet around her and briefly puts her hand in his, not even allowing him to put his lips to her fingertips. That’s the eighteenth century equivalent of a naughty post-coital sext. Take note.
