The Atmosphere’s Electric

Talking 'Bout Their G-G-Generation

Brazil's national electricity grid had to provide extra energy to avoid a nationwide blackout Friday when the final chapter of the hit soap opera "Tropical Paradise" aired. TV Globo said about 90 per cent of television viewers in the country of 186 million people tuned in for the final chapter to learn who murdered the scheming villain Tais and to find out if Bebel, the Pygmalion-like prostitute, would live happily ever after. Prime-time soap operas known are telenovelas, with average runs of 200 episodes, are hugely popular in Brazil.

FOOTNOTE: That’s telly vision.

Can someone named Bebel, the Pygmalion-like prostitute, ever REALLY live happily ever after?

G'day Bradley,

I'd hope the answer is yes! Maybe a TV viewer in Brazil would care to enlighten us both!

Keep smiling
