Trivia

Brazil is in Netflix's top 5 markets worldwide, though this marks the first Netflix original series completely shot, produced and acted by Brazilians. Brazilians have played an important part in other Netflix series: Narcos (2015) Season 1's first two episodes were directed by José Padilha, who also served as an executive producer on the series; Fernando Coimbra directed two other segments while Wagner Moura starred as Pablo Escobar.

Excellent and Promising
13 December 2016 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

All praise to Netflix for starting to focus on non-American series. 3% is the first Netflix series from Brazil and provides a welcome different perspective on TV series than most of what is produced in the USA. As other reviewers have stated, the dubbed version is apparently terrible, but I watched it on its original Portuguese, which led to the series re-igniting my love for that language. Not that there is anything specific about the Portuguese spoken in this series, but the language gives a very different twist to events than a English dubbed version would do. Most actors are still at the beginning of their careers (no wonder, if they are all supposed to be twenty years old), therefore a lack of experience is to be expected. Nowhere did this distract from the drama, though. The plot is strong enough, but can still go anywhere in season 2. The Process itself has been played out now and cannot be the focus of a next season. Having the sequel focus on the Offshore (Alto Mar) itself would take the mystery out of that place and can only disappoint. I'm curious what the writers are going to come up with, for I will definitely tune in for season 2.
