Trivia

Was shown for the first time in Brazil on October,11,2011 even though the two countries Portugal and Brazil speak Portuguese, the series had to be dubbed from his original Portuguese Portuguese to Brazilian Portuguese in order to be understood since the Brazilians who aren't very intelligent have big trouble when it comes to understand the Portuguese people, even thought the people from Portugal understand the Brazilians without any major problem.

Other Portuguese series like "Olhos de Agua" and "Morangos com açucar" had the same treatment. See more »
