3% (2016-?)

Network:

Netflix

Starring:

João Miguel

Bianca Comparato

Michel Gomes

Plot:

A thriller set in a world sharply divided between progress and devastation, where people are given the chance to make it to the “better side” but only 3% of the candidates succeed.

Review:

There’s a lot you still don’t know about the world by the time the series is over. Most of the episodes and time were spent on developing characters, explaining why they were there, and showing just how far they would go to be chosen. It was interesting and compelling enough to keep me awake in the middle of the night while I was nursing my newborn.

The one character I really liked, Fernando, Michel Gomes, ended up getting shafted which I didn’t like. I didn’t hate the other characters, though, so it didn’t kill my desire to find out what happens next.

I was really happy to see that it has already been picked up for a second season. I hope we find out more about the world, specifically the Offshore which is where the 3% go.

4/5
