Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This entertaining series, which is subtitled in English, delivers a solid plot and funny one-liners thanks to well-rounded characters created by outstanding Brazilian actors. While the narrative is steeped in contemporary Brazilian culture, the themes (and the humor) are universal, making it easy for non-Portuguese speakers to immerse themselves in the show.

There's some silliness, but it manages to create laughable moments without ridicule. As a result, Samantha! offers a seamless story about a likable woman who, while possibly a little misguided, has the self-confidence and commitment to continue pursuing her dreams of stardom. If you're looking for a fun series that has heart, this one is worth tuning into.
