The Brazilian Ministry of Justice intervened ordering Rede Globo to cut violence scenes and sexual overtone, inappropriate for a 7pm telenovela. After the series ended, it was rated PG-13, precluding Rede Globo to run it before 8pm. See more »
I discovered this series by accident one day the first time it was aired. I was intrigued by the "native tribe" I was seeing. Though I consider myself to be fluent in Spanish (from Honduras), I think the series was dubbed in Venezuelan Spanish, which I have found to be virtually unintelligible to a Central American speaker.
But I watched it every day and came to understand much of the plot. I have never seen a series at times so ribald, so ridiculously funny, and so dedicated to showing off near-naked male bodies! The near-nudity was at times gratuitous, which made it even funnier.
I loved the antics of Bernardo and Casimiro and their respective lady friends, and of their mother Dona Pirina, who was prone to hiding their clothing when they took showers. And just about everything to do with the "tribe" was hilarious, beginning with the necessity of swimming underground to get to their village!
