El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×03 Review: Time of Spells

One of the most interesting aspects of El Ministerio del Tiempo is how it allows us to learn more about well-known figures. We know the names, their main works, but this show teaches us about their lives. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×02 Review: Time of Spies

I am a sucker for stories set in the World Wars, and there is something alluring about time travel shows or films that visit this period. Should something be changed? Would that alter the course of events? Should we kill Hitler? Continue reading

It might be hard to believe, but after a year of arduous negotiations, El Ministerio del Tiempo is finally back to our small screens! It comes with some casualties (Rodolfo Sancho, The Ministry’s Files), but let’s just be thankful it’s back, and we can complain about the rest afterwards. Continue reading

MdT Julian Alonso Maite Elena

Javier Olivares will never cease to amaze me. Just when I thought this second season couldn’t get any better, he has offered us a finale that made me laugh and cry in equal shares. But let’s get to it. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 2×10 Review: Separated by Time

MdT 2x10 1912

Oh, don’t I love it when parallel stories converge. On this occasion, El Ministerio del Tiempo gave us three stories that ended up having something in common: Las Sinsombrero (the women from the Generation of ’27), the stolen children in the 1980s, and the vampire of the Raval. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 2×09 Review: Oil on Time

Velazquez Blade Runner Ministerio Tiempo

El Ministerio del Tiempo has always dealt with how you’re not supposed to go back in time to save someone you love (something that both Julián and Pacino blatantly ignored), but what if what you want to save is a bunch of paintings?
