As a 26 year old woman, Alice is a pretty typical representation of young adulthood. I'd like to say that we're all grown up and responsible by that age (and we should be), but it has become increasingly common for people to use their twenties to figure the world and their place in it out. Alice embraces drunkenness, drug fueled nights, and open sexuality in her seeming liberation. Along the way, she betrays every one that cares about her with her utter and complete selfishness. No one is more battered than her friend Nick.Read more ›
The reviews for this series were positive and the price was very reasonable for 13 episodes that are each about 45 minutes long.
I had no problems viewing the discs, though they were really hard to remove from the case. The audio is excellent (I chose 5-channel Portuguese, but there is also 2-channel Portuguese and a Spanish dubbed track). Subtitles are available in English or Spanish, but not Portuguese.
The video quality is very inconsistent. I think that the transfer to DVD was not done very well, but it could be the original source, though the series was shot in 2008. The problem seems more apparent with longer shots, when the image has very obvious horizontal lines (like on an non-HD TV, except worse). Strangely, close-ups look quite sharp in comparison, and since most of the series consists of close and mid-range shots, it's only the scenic long shots that are affected by the problem. The video problems in the final episode were distracting, with noticeable shifts or jerks in the image, but by that time I was hooked on the story and did my best to ignore it.
As for the series itself, I was totally drawn into it and watched the entire season in a couple of days. Be patient with it, because by the second or third episode it looks as if they have introduced way too many characters and story lines, and then they appear to drop them.Read more ›
I hope soon we will be able to enjoy the last part of the show.
Other than the technical difficulties, the series was a good watch. It isn't always easy to find movies and such in Portuguese and My fiancée loves it when I do.
This story is not only a must-see for Brazilians, but also for anyone who loves - or misses - one of the truly remarkable cities in the world.
(Here is hoping the DVD comes with the original Portuguese language track intact, because HBO - for some reason - obliterated it for a silly and trite Spanish dubbed track in U.S. on-demand broadcasts...)

This series was fabulous. I was saddened it ended after really only one season. Wished at least a film could come of it now and have a tight resolution to her story.Published 8 months ago by alicia brite
