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 »

Is it the best argentinian TV series ever made?
10 June 2003 | by (Bs.As., Argentina) – See all my reviews

If You only watched this series, and had to suffer the other really poor series made in Argentina (Adrian Suar one's, and so on). So You may think that this one is the best. But in other hand I could show You that the script, or maybe the whole idea or project, was "inspired" in two, not well known here, previous series. They are "Stingray" 1986-1987, and "Vengeance Unlimited" 1998-1999. I've to admit that "Los Simuladores" is a good series, its director, its actors, its photography, etc., anyway it have some serious flaws. But I can´t forget it isn't an original script, it's a non annunciated adaptation.

So if You think that it is the best argentinian series ever made, I want you to remember there was two previous series that told the same story with a much more precise and flawless script. I encourage You to try to watch any of this previous series, so you'll can make your conclusion. I think that it is just a good "not original" series, that could be even better.
