Words can be stronger than a sword
For the last few years there has been a substantial improvement on the quality of Portuguese TV series. Good acting and enough historical authenticity to make historical fiction believable are the most important characteristics of these productions. Bocage tells us of the last years in the life of the most important Portuguese poet of the 18th century.

Miguel Guilherme creates a perfect character, poor, bitter and rebel. Manuel Vieira, the dirty (in more than one way) priest is absolutely great and Henrique Viana, as the Authority Pina Manique is the kind of villain you love to hate. But the best in all the series is the spirit of Bocage, his extraordinary poems filled with bitterness and cynicism, the word duels he kept having (and winning) with his rivals and his tormented life have in this series a deserved homage.

A definitive must to know life in Portugal in the 18th century but unfortunately very hard to translate.
