Portuguese Martial Arts TV Series

So... I kinda made a TV series and this is the trailer:

It's a low budget martial arts parody about a Portuguese fascist super-hero in the 1960's. You'll have to actually follow the link to Youtube and click on the little Closed Captions (CC) icon there if you want English subtitles, though.

It's also a follow-up to another TV series I made a few years ago ( which was also incredibly low budget, but this time about a failed Portuguese lounge singer that decided to run for President with the help of a ghost friend.

I have no idea if any of this makes any sense to anyone outside Portugal, but I hope you like it. I'm a huge PA fan, so I guess I'm hoping someone around the office watches it eventually. :)

    the Captions work on the forum for me, actually.

    Also you are my hero and I loved it.

    Thanks Iruka, I'm checking out your Deviant Art right now and it's pretty damned impressive as well!

    These are our official TV posters by the way:

    Jesus this looks sweet! I loved it and suddenly I find myself waiting anxiously for something called "Space Bill and Max"!

    I've watched the trailer three times already.
    So I suppose I REALLY look forward to seeing it!

    Thanks Mayday, I've watched it more times than I'd like to admit, heh.

    M3nace, "Space Bill & Max" is my next project, which I'll hopefully shoot in late 2012. It's been in pre-production for almost 2 years and we already have some robots/animatronics built in the UK. It's a retro sci-fi film and Special Effects are being done by the MillenniumFX crew ( They've done way too many cool films and TV Shows to mention here, check out their "Credits".

    I know nothing of Portugal, but this would be a huge hit on Adult Swim here in the US, if only as a trailer.

    It's brilliant!

    Damnit people, I'm going to watch it the fourth time, so help me God!

  • LeitaoLeitao Registered User regular
    Thanks guys!

    If someone at the PA office manages to watch the trailer I'll have a nerdgasm all over my keyboard. :)

    I never posted in the AC (this is my first post here in 5 years) but I couldn't resist.

    That was pretty fucking awesome.

    Let 'em eat fucking pineapples!

    Thanks Veritas, I'm really glad you liked it!

    Anyone know what the chances are that someone at the PA office stumbles into the forums and watches my silly little trailer?

    I'm not looking for advertisement... I'd just be happy if someone there watched the trailer and got a chuckle out of it. I'm a huge PA fan. :)

    Hmmm... Only Khoo reads the forums I think, he might refer it to the others at the pa staff, but I don't know. Chances aren't super high but they're there.

    I watched this trailer about four or five times now. I admit, I thought the last eleven seconds or so were the funniest.

    But why an evil Soviet sorcerer of all things? I have frequently been given to understand that the Soviet Union was not particularly mystical (Stalin's cult of personality notwithstanding). Clearly he should have been a mad Soviet scientist with a mind control beam bent on ressurrecting a Soviet mummy.

  • LeitaoLeitao Registered User regular
    In that particular episode the main villian is a Communist Wizard that's attacking the Museum of Natural History to revive/convert an ancient mummy with his powerful commie-ray shooting magic staff. (as in, his commie-rays convert anyone to a dangerous kung fu expert communist.

    This is all based on historic facts. I can assure you I was very thorough with my research.
