I really don't know what to think about this.

>Do you speak Portuguese? It's on my (long) list of languages to learn. I'd be really difficult not to compare the two shows, especially since the scripts are practically identical.

No, I don't, I can get a few words and that's it.

Ok, if you are strong enough not to compare the acting. :-)

I am definitely not strong enough. ;)

I used to be fluent in Portuguese (Brasileiro even), but have lost the lingo in recent years. I can still follow most of it though.

As for what I think of it, I'll refer Meirelles's own words back to him when he said "We don't have a Paul Gross in Brazil" and went on to say that there is no-one with his charisma. All I can say is ...yeah. Still, I'm glad it's out there. There's not enough Slings and Arrows in the world, so an imitation (and this is what it is) can only be flattering.

It is making me crave the real thing though, it has been ages since I last watched it.

I guess Canada doesn't have a Meirelle, either, which, I dunno, 'cause I have no idea what he's like (except this, see above about not understanding Portuguese). But since there's probably a picture of Paul in the dictionary next to the word 'charismatic', I've gotta agree with you.

There needs to be a (Canadian) S&A watchathon soon. After the holidays, maybe.

Well those aren't my words, they're Meirelleseses!
That said, I also saw City of God (did some work in the Shanty towns in Rio for a few weeks some years ago, so had a vested interest) and that was beyond brilliant. Som E Furia is a little weird though, as it's just copying another project. The original flair in directing will be kinda lost.


On a different note, I would LOVE an S&A watchathon! Name the date and time and I'm there (depending on the date and time). All this talk had also got me itching to see more new Paul as well.
