Black Mirror Review: Hang The DJ

I don’t usually review Black Mirror episodes. On one hand, because I enjoy just watching them, without the pressure of having to take notes and then talk about them. And on the other hand, because they are so grim that, by the time they are done, I’m curled up on the couch rocking myself while holding my legs and staring blankly into nothing while thinking, “this is going to happen to us. It’s coming and we are doing nothing to prevent it.” Continue reading

My Favourite TV Shows in 2017

twice upon a time cuddle

The year is ending and, let’s be honest: with this new age of Golden Television, we are also given too much. There are so many TV shows being made that we can’t watch them all, and not all of them can be good. Continue reading

Doctor Who Review: Twice Upon A Time

I always cry when a Doctor leaves, regardless of the episode. It is, after all, the end of an era. Their final speeches are always related to their actual stint playing the iconic role, and it’s their way of saying goodbye. Eccleston saying he was brilliant, Tennant acknowledging he didn’t want to go, Smith asserting he would always remember when he played the Doctor, and now self-proclaimed Who fan Capaldi letting go of the character he’s played for the past three years. Continue reading

On Stranger Things 2

Sequels can be tricky. Most times, you can’t help but compare it to the original, and we know they usually pale by comparison. Luckily for us, that wasn’t the case with Stranger Things 2. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×13 Review: Between Two Times

Let’s just forget that this might be the last episode ever of El Ministerio del Tiempo, and discuss: wasn’t it the best way to end a season/series? Full of self-references, not just to previous plots of the show, but to the behind-the-scenes story as well. But let’s start from the beginning. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×12 Review: Time Setbacks

I am not going to start talking about how El Ministerio del Tiempo is being mistreated, because then I’d have to write 10,000 words on it. Instead, let me focus on how great the penultimate episode of this third (last?) season was. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×11 Review: Time of Verbena

Every episode of El Ministerio del Tiempo makes me laugh, but if I had to choose the most hilarious one, the story that had me rolling on the floor, that would be the mission where Angustias has to talk Napoleon into freeing some prisoners. Even Hugo Silva (Pacino) admitted that he couldn’t stop laughing when he first read the script. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×09 Review: the Schism of Time

El Ministerio del Tiempo has always made something very clear: you can travel to the past, but you can’t visit the future. That’s what Salvador has always stated. 2017 is the last stop, and there is no going forward. But now, that so-called rule might change forever. Do we want to see what’s beyond our present?
