I've got eye bags from 'binge-watching' French shows: Blinken

Speaking in fluent French, Blinken called France his "second homeland," having lived in Paris for more than 10 years, attending middle school and high school during that period.

On a lighter note, Blinken heralded the shared values between France and the United States, particularly of liberty and freedom of speech.

He said the two cultures were "profoundly entwined," and as proof, he himself was hooked on popular French TV thrillers such as "Lupin" and "Le Bureau des Legendes" and the hit comedy series "Dix Pour Cent."
