El Ministerio del Tiempo 1×01 Review: Time Is What it Is

I have been a fan of El Ministerio del Tiempo since its inception back in 2015. How couldn’t I? Isabel had just ended, and here were its creators, the Olivares brothers (RIP Pablo), giving us a time travelling show that starred king Fernando himself and was going to have a cameo by the queen and Cisneros, plus many of the actors were going to reappear playing different characters.

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?

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?

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×08 Review: Time of Conquest

I’m not telling you anything new when I say that, after the Spanish discovery of America, plenty of natives were treated poorly and stripped of their culture and belongings. Well, this is the story of the Spaniard who did in fact respect their traditions. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×07 Review: Time of Censorship

Some characters in history seem to be more prone to needing help than others, or at least more prone to meeting our team at different points in their lives, even if they don’t remember it. Continue reading
