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 11×03 Review: Rosa

My favourite Doctor Who stories are those set in the past. We explore something we know, or we think we know, and then we get a timey wimey twist. Continue reading

El Ministerio del Tiempo 1×02 Review: Time of Glory

There is nothing like the first appearance of a character that will become a recurring one. The type audiences instantly love and want to see meeting our heroes again and again. In MdT, the first of such characters was Lope de Vega, known throughout the centuries as a womanizer, and portrayed as such in here. Continue reading

Doctor Who 11×02 Review: The Ghost Monument

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

Farewell, Scotsman; hello, Yorkshirewoman.

Why This Is Us is the Best You Can Watch Right Now

TV dramas. We are saturated with them. We have thousands of choices. Who hasn’t spent half an hour on Netflix trying to decide what to watch, only to hopelessly give up? Luckily, most of the television being made right now is top-notch. The Golden Age. TV in its prime. But it seems to be focusing on cable and streaming services, and we are forgetting that network television is not just syndicated shows and sit-coms. 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

Clarkson, Hammond and May are back in Whitby for the fourth episode of their new adventure, and they’ve absolutely killed it on this latest outing. Quite literally in Clarkson’s case – he had to kill an entire farm to make his car! Continue reading
