Surprisingly good show
2 September 2013 | by mplazaSee all my reviews

The three chapters shown so far of this series on HBO's Latin American satellite and cable TV signals (I live in Venezuela) are surprisingly good. Tasteful, with a very high degree of quality, production-wise, it has nothing to envy from productions made in the USA, Canada, the EU or Australia. With very young actresses that play their roles with ease, self confidence and even impudence, it is a very fine exponent of that very difficult discipline that is a comedy that makes you smile instead of making you laugh out loud, which is of course a lot easier to achieve. To just make you smile and admire the writer's cleverness and wit you need a very competent team back stage and these Brazilians undoubtedly have scored a remarkable hit in that sense. Let's hope forthcoming instalments keep this high quality level, but in any case it deserves wide viewing.
