The passepartout

Written by 

A series that can be reviewed in the SIC gold channel and is the portrait of the day to day life of two brothers trying to make a living as best they can.

This comedy show based on three characters starring Miguel Guilherme, Ivo Canelas and the late Canto and Castro who were respectively Quim Fitas, Joca and the grandfather. They try all forms and shapes to survive with all sorts of less honest expedients and in most cases with unexpected results. Based on a mythical British sitcom "Only Fools and Horses," written by John Sullivan's , this TV show did not merely copy the original, which was a wise decision, which resulted in one of early television successes of SIC.
Joca played by Ivo Canelas start his career, he plays the younger brother, pretty straight forward which is always fooled by the older brother with dubious and ruinous shemes. The work of the actor in this series already showed the brighter future of this professional actor all over the years.
Miguel Guilherme, one of the best actors of our country, is the prodigy family womanizer and work in as little as possible with grand schemes that always end up the worst possible way and with the most funny outcomes, the typical Portuguese scoundrel, in good sense. And finally, the actor Canto and Castro that makes the trio, a great actor that it is worth recalling in this role, his character was the counterpoint of two brothers who never ends up doing nothing but criticize everything and everyone, the typical old men of Restelo.
The best of this sitcom was the quality of the script and the group of actors. The episodes are very funny and held the viewer to the chair, is now a cult series on the Internet which it is still an achievement. Perhaps instead of the tvgarbage that SIC now broadcasts, they should look at this ancient production and recalled that before they broadcast very good comedy shows in the early days of its existence as a private channel. The worst of the series is the recorded laughter I never enjoyed it very much. A classic television to review and enjoyed.
