Outlander 4×02 ‘Do No Harm’: Live Recap

As is usual in Outlander, terrible things happen in ‘Do No Harm’ and everyone is miserable, because the Frasers never have more than five minutes of happiness before someone tries to murder, rape or execute one of the characters. The 18th century is grim. But let’s go! Continue reading

Outlander 4×01 ‘America The Beautiful’: Live Recap

I have come to realise that the only show other than Doctor Who that I am currently watching is Outlander. Seeing as I have nothing else to review, I thought I would take advantage of this other time-travelling show and start writing about it now that it has only just begun again. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×05 Review: The Tsuranga Conundrum

Welcome to the fifth adventure of Thirteen, the episode whose title sounds like we are watching The Big Bang Theory. If I have to be honest, this is so far my least favourite of the five, but it is also the one with my favourite monster, the ultra-cute, Lord Nibbler-like Pting. Even the name sounds adorable. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×04 Review: Arachnids in the UK

I must admit that standalone episodes that are about a monster we’ve never heard of before are never my cup of tea, but hats off to Chris Chibnall, because the freshness of his writing made me enjoy this episode thoroughly. And I hate spiders. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×03 Review: Rosa

My favourite Doctor Who stories are those set in the past. We explore something we know, or we think we know, and then we get a timey wimey twist. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 1×02 Review: Time of Glory

There is nothing like the first appearance of a character that will become a recurring one. The type audiences instantly love and want to see meeting our heroes again and again. In MdT, the first of such characters was Lope de Vega, known throughout the centuries as a womanizer, and portrayed as such in here. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×02 Review: The Ghost Monument

I love me some cliffhangers. They leave me in suspense, and since Doctor Who is one of the few shows I get to watch on a weekly basis, instead of binge-watched, the wait is delightful. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×01 Review: ‘The Woman Who Fell To Earth’

Farewell, Scotsman; hello, Yorkshirewoman. An event we have been anticipating since the announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor (some because they love watching the show, others because they wanted to complain about the new choice, whatever the outcome), the first adventure of number 13 (14, but we know how it works) feels as big as a movie and as charming as your regular ol’ Doc. Also, I loved everyone’s accent. Continue reading

Netflix has Mastered Teen Movies -Grown-Up Ones, not so Much

I hadn’t planned to review nor recap any of those Netflix films you decide to watch at night in the comfort of your couch, let alone write a whole mini-essay on them. But after one too many bored nights of scrolling through what the Netflix Al-Gore-rhythm (bless you, Titus) recommended, I noticed a pattern that is sticking: the films for teenagers are good, and the ones oriented at adults tend to be total crap -yes that is the scientific term for it.
