Now that we have finished my favorite science fiction series, Babylon 5, I’m delighted to finally be properly reviewing my favorite portal fantasy series, which I have mentioned several times in the past: El Ministerio del Tiempo. This time travel series, which does not use high tech, but does use humor, social juxtapositions, and history to devastating effect, is originally from Spanish Public Television, RTVes. The videos were initially available on the RTVe website, then pulled when a deal was made with Netflix, and then put back again a year or two later, limited to viewers in Europe (or those with a free proxy set to Europe…).
This series has been helpful, as it comes with CCs, in brushing up on my Castillian Spanish, as well as my history of Spain and of Spanish literature. It is a gem of a show in so many ways that I can hardly wait to begin sharing, so here are some of the main characters!
Amelia, to start with, will be our first featured main character, and then we’ll meet:
and then the irascible Irene, so popular with the ladies, who is the first woman to head the leadership team of the Ministry of Time, thank you for your intelligence, Ireni Lara.
