Outlander 4×02 ‘Do No Harm’: Live Recap

As is usual in Outlander, terrible things happen in ‘Do No Harm’ and everyone is miserable, because the Frasers never have more than five minutes of happiness before someone tries to murder, rape or execute one of the characters. The 18th century is grim. But let’s go! Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×05 Review: The Tsuranga Conundrum

Welcome to the fifth adventure of Thirteen, the episode whose title sounds like we are watching The Big Bang Theory. If I have to be honest, this is so far my least favourite of the five, but it is also the one with my favourite monster, the ultra-cute, Lord Nibbler-like Pting. Even the name sounds adorable. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×04 Review: Arachnids in the UK

I must admit that standalone episodes that are about a monster we’ve never heard of before are never my cup of tea, but hats off to Chris Chibnall, because the freshness of his writing made me enjoy this episode thoroughly. And I hate spiders. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×02 Review: The Ghost Monument

I love me some cliffhangers. They leave me in suspense, and since Doctor Who is one of the few shows I get to watch on a weekly basis, instead of binge-watched, the wait is delightful. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×01 Review: ‘The Woman Who Fell To Earth’

Farewell, Scotsman; hello, Yorkshirewoman. An event we have been anticipating since the announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor (some because they love watching the show, others because they wanted to complain about the new choice, whatever the outcome), the first adventure of number 13 (14, but we know how it works) feels as big as a movie and as charming as your regular ol’ Doc. Also, I loved everyone’s accent. 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

I Watched Tommy Wiseau’s The Room and I Have So Many Questions

For the past few months, I have been looking forward to seeing The Disaster Artist. Sadly, it’s not released in Spain until the very end of December, so I thought I’d make the most of it and finally watch The Room, because I have read that it would be so much better if I saw James Franco’s film having knowledge of the baby that set things in motion. And boy, did that blow my mind. 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
