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.

You don't review a show based on one episode. Most first episodes (of any series) are the pilot, and they don't tell much about the history, plot, acting quality. I'm not trying to defend it because I'm Brazilian, I just don't think some people are fair on their judgement (one user in particular even said he only watched the first episode, and gave it ONE star). Please guys, don't do that, reviews like that are not useful at all. I can't remember me watching a first episode of any show and thinking "wow, the best show ever".
To be honest, I didn't like the two first episodes, but I gave the show a chance and it proved me wrong. It really gets entertaining as you watch. The actors and plot are great and the history is quite original (besides some elements from other shows). I watched the full season in 3 days or less.
Just give it a shot, but please watch more than one episode.
