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.

May surprise those who only know Brazilian Soaps
28 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

There's plenty to recommend this low-budget, futuristic Portuguese- Brazilian 8-episode SciFi teleseries. It has a gripping plot, the characters have plenty of magnetism and the situation of poverty versus privilege will ring true with many.

It's about a futuristic, real-life competition designed to choose the optimum 3% of new adults, who deem their skills sufficient to "pass" a truly grueling selection process. Successful candidates are rewarded with a life in a man-made paradise "Offshore", whereas the rest are doomed to continue living "Inland" - a huge poverty-stricken, environmentally degraded favela. There's plenty of sub-plot, social current and Machiavellian wickedness to keep viewers on the edge of their seats till the last episode. Despite the DIY feel of the close sets there are fortunately enough locations to relieve viewers of claustrophobia, that hampers many other cheap SciFi productions. I think this one (thanks to a good English dubbed version) will catch on with a wider TV audience than the normal Portuguese, homespun audience.
