Soap versus Scams & Ruses
18 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

"What Kinda King Am I?" mixes The Prince and the Pauper with The Prisoner of Zenda to tell the story of the Avilan country, plagued by an absolutist, degenerate tyranny. As pop-star Abel Chacrinha used to state, within the television community, nothing is created, whilst everything is copied. The phrase continues to ring a bell and adhere to almost everything done by TV Globo along the last quarter century, including this satire against (ugh)... Corruption. (By the way, the latter phenomenon, incidentally, seems to have grown 5000 percent in this quarter century alone) (and nowadays Avilan is even more corrupt than, say, rotten Denmark used to be in more princely times.)
