A star is (re)born
9 July 2018 | by ferdinandodantasSee all my reviews

Fame, what you get is no tomorrow? "Samantha!" is hilarious series for people at all and an irresistible piece of cake for those who grew up stuck to the TV set during the 80's like me. At those past days there were no politically correct, no censorship and no sense at all. Things in Brazil couldn't be any different. Despite their target audience and young stars, children's television shows had hostesses posing for Playboy magazine and merchandising literally anything money could buy.

Outstanding performances in such a perfect acting and storytelling. Two thumbs up for Emanuelle Araújo, Douglas Silva and Lorena Comparato.

"Samantha!" is a colorful, sarcastic and delicious journey to our affective memories as it draws a curious parallel of what it feels like to be famous in 2018. Totally binge-worthy.

After the reign of social media influencers what's next?
