Netflix new series - 3% - time to lay back for some Brazilian Sci/fi

 article about netflix new series
Netflix has launched a new tv series called 3%. It's a series-version of the 2011 movie with the same name. The premise is simple, yet quite good/original - the action takes places in a world which is divided into two different parts, the Inland, and the Offshore. The title comes from the fact that only 3% of the people can make it to the Offshore by going through the Process. Everyone that turns 20 years old, has the chance to go through the selection Process. The Process makes sense at times, and can be very cruel at other times.

It's Brazilian series in Portugese language - while in general I haven't been too impressed by foreign language series in Netflix, this one is one of the exceptions for me. I started watching the first season and...well, it's difficult to stop.

Some people say that the acting in there is simply horrendous, but I don't really agree with it. And as I'm just checking some IMDB reviews, many other people say the acting is superb. Go figure.

If you're looking for something new to watch, the 3% is definitely something to check out. Chances are that you will either hate it or love it. If you're into sci/fi stuff, then you probably will like it. If you're not into it, you'll probably find a number of problems with it. But that's to be expected. I do recommend though to watch the first two episodes before you decide.
