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? 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

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×06 Review: Time of Slaves

It is always hard to say goodbye to a ministry worker, even more so when we don’t know for sure if the show will be back, which makes their “it’s not a goodbye, it’s a see you later” all the more heartbreaking. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×05 Review: Time of Splendour

If there is something I enjoy more than well-written episodes, is the return of beloved recurring characters. That is the case in ‘Time of Splendour’, where we enjoy the visit of not one, but two key people: Lope de Vega and Cervantes. And it also allows us to sit back and rejoice a little bit, because these two had a rivalry of sorts that is wonderfully played out this time. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 3×04 Review: Time of the Enlightened

What an interesting history Spain has, so full of world-wide known celebrated characters. We know painters like Goya through their works, but there is much more behind the canvas, and that is the sort of thing we get to learn with El Ministerio del Tiempo. Continue reading
