Spetacular!
5 January 2006 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I have almost 22 years, in another words, i've born in 1984. Duarte & Companhia was made in 1985, but my very first memory about myself watching TV, is not watching sesame street or the muppet's show, but watching great series like the knight rider, or the a-team, and... Duarte & Companhia!!!

This series passed on TV for years... it's an awesome series, and i would love it if some producer decided to make a remake of this series, or even a movie!... Just watch it!! P.S. - This series is also known here in Portugal as the Portuguese Knightrider! (but with a very very low budget!!)
