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

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
Ah, Game of Thrones, I hope you run for 20 seasons. Can we make that happen? Because I’m sure everyone would watch it. Continue reading
I am sure you have noticed, even if you don’t like superhero franchises, that the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron is out there promoting the film everywhere in the world (and they are all being cute and hilarious). Continue reading
Do you miss Isabel, now that it’s over? I sure as hell do. I couldn’t bear living in a world where I didn’t have new episodes to watch of this historical masterpiece, and its sequel, Carlos Emperador (‘Charles Emperor’) won’t arrive until this autumn Continue reading
As abrupt as Twelfth’s regeneration was, so was his first introduction to the world. In a way as hilarious as sharp, Peter Capaldi entered the show as the Doctor by telling our beloved Strax to, well, shut up –more specifically, “shush!” Continue reading
I´m getting A BIT too anxious about the upcoming Doctor Who 50th anniversary. Not only because it is going to be epic and I´ll cry my heart out when Matt Smith -God bless your cheekbones- regenerates, but also because it will mark the return of my favourite doctor/companion combo EVER.
Yes, I am talking about David Tennant and Billie Piper. Continue reading
To my delight, I have just found out that Sky Arts is broadcasting Isabel, an awarded Spanish show that is currently on its second season back in my home country.Now that I am in London, I find this little things particularly touching, since they allow me to have tiny moments of homesickness. Maybe because in Spain I watch this with my mum -whose name also happens to be Isabel.
To put you in situation, Isabel tells the story of whom were the most important monarchs in Spanish history: Fernando of Aragon and Isabel of Castile, commonly known as “Los Reyes Católicos” (The Catholic Monarchs): America was discovered during their reign, and they also reconquered the parts of Southern Spain that still belonged to the Muslims. They did many other things, of course, and everything is splendidly depicted in the show. Continue reading
This is supposed to be an article about how season 4 of Downton Abbey is going so far, especially after the (cruel) deaths we had to go through last year. This means that I am not going to talk about the “event” from Episode 3, because I’m starting to feel that creator Julian Fellowes wants to turn Downton into Game of Thrones: Edwardian Edition.
I was quite concerned about how the absences of Sybil and Matthew would affect the show, particularly the latter-how do you kill him in such a cruel way on CHRISTMAS DAY?-. So far, I can state that every time someone mentions their name, I get a lump in my throat. Continue reading
