Porta dos Fundos Posted by on Oct 30, 2012 in Entertainment

A group of bloggers and comedians got together to start a new online comedy series called Porta dos Fundos (The Back Door). The episodes are very funny, though some have mature content. Two of the recent episodes are more PG-13 (though irreverent), so let’s have a look:

In this episode, one character pitches the Bible for a movie, and the other character suggests changes. Watch the video and see if you can answer the questions.

1. What does he compare the Bible to?

2. What does “de repente” mean in the context that the executive uses?

3. What does the executive want to change about the main character?

In this video, a man goes in search of answers about his wife.

4. Where is Rita?

5. Where is she going?

6. What did Rita’s husband do?

Look for the answers after the jump.


1. A Mexican novela

2. Maybe

3. He wants him to be a woman pretending to be a man

4. On the subway

5. Pilates class

6. He accidentally let the dog escape from the house
