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 3×04 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

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
