Favorite Brazilian TV Show Posted by on Jun 19, 2009 in Entertainment

For today’s interactive feature, the question is: what is your favorite Brazilian TV show?

Though Brazil is best known for its novelas, it also has produced some interesting reality shows, often local adaptations of foreign reality shows. I happen to be a big fan of “Troca de Familia,” a Brazilian adaptation of the American show, in which wives (and sometimes husbands) switch families for a week to gain some perspective on their own family. It is a great glimpse into Brazilian culture and the vast socioeconomic and regional divides that exist in Brazil.

What about you?

    Meu programa favorito é Caminho das Indias. Gostei também de Mulheres apaixonadas.

  2. Chris R:

    Actually “Wife Swap” was originally a British show.

  3. Marlene:

    Fantástico e Programa do Jô \o/
    Não gosto de novelas, não.

  4. Steven:

    I only know programs from TV Globo Internacional. I’m not into the novelas, but the 2 programs I do like are Vai pra onde? (because I am interested in travel) and Toma Lá Dá Cá. In both shows I can understand or enjoy the program without knowing 100% of what is being said. In the back of my head I wonder if I would appreciate “Toma Lá Dá Cá” the same way if I understood the português better.

  5. Jack:

    Is it possible to watch Troca de Familia online? I couldn’t find it on any web sites.
