Trivia

Many have connected this series with The A-Team (1983). As Hannibal does there, Mario Santos (the head of the team) always smokes a cigar when the plan has completed (the only exception being episode 2.8, when he lights a pipe). See more »

BEST Arg. show ever made!
5 September 2010 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

If there was an Argetinian show, this is it! How could anyone ever imagine that one guy could ever imagine all this? 4 very different guys... doing each one of them what they're prepared to do... gathered together, working as a team, solving problems ''which nobody can solve''... what's the result of this? (plus very good sense of humor - realistic topics - some action - history facts events) THE MOST GORGEOUS TOTALLY AMAZING TALENTED SHOW!! If you're from other part of the world... whatever you're thinking live it all behind and give yourself the possibility to enjoy this TV work of art... for me we could compare the difference (then GREAT SUCCESS) between JJ ABRAMS'S LOST and the other shows in Northamerica and ''LOS SIMULADORES (PRETENDERS)'' and the other shows in Argentina. In both cases you can only say ''There's no other like this. No other.'' 4 WORDS SAID from Damian Szifrom (Director-creator)--- Santos: Brain, Lampone: Strengh, Medina: Heart, and Ravenna: Humor-artistic (each one separated and together in a bigger and perfect body).
