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? That was the main theme of ‘Oil on Time’. That, and some of the best lines of dialogue of the season. This episode was what you’d get if Dangerous Liaisons met Mission Impossible. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 2×06 Review: Time of Magic

Pacino Amelia Alonso 2x06

El Ministerio del Tiempo has always established that the doors can only take you different eras of Spain’s history, being all of them located in the Iberian country. But of course, if once you’ve travelled to another time, you decide you want to take a boat and go somewhere else, that’s entirely up to you, and it is what we saw for the first time in ‘Time of Magic’.

El Ministerio del Tiempo 2×05 Review: A Virus from Another Time

Amelia Pacino Ernesto 2x05 MdT

The greatest thing about El Ministerio del Tiempo (or one of many) would be its fans. They (we) are the ones who have taken this series from promising fiction to absolute success. Which why it’s no surprise that all the extras that appeared on the latest episode where fans chosen to be part of the show for one day. Continue reading
