| Charming and pleasant Sci-Fi series including appropriate production design , interesting intrigue and nice interpretations
Enjoyable Sci-Fi/Adventure series developed with emotion , suspense , thrills and noisy action . This is an imaginative , glamorous , strange fantasy based on the wonderful adventures by a group of heroes against ominous enemies who want to modify historical facts . It is a familiar but satisfying and agreeable Sci-Fi yarn . This a fun series starred by a group of time agents at charge of avoiding nasty people to change world history . Long time ago , during Catholic kingdom (XV century) , kings Isabel and Fernando , was discovered some weird doors , they are enough to go other epochs and take them all back . ¨Time Ministry chief¨ (Jaime Blanch) along with his underlings (Juan Gea , Calletana Guillen Cuervo) look for intelligent as well brave applicants throughout time , the candidates are the followings : Julián Martínez (Rodolfo Sancho) , a SAMUR paramedical worker affected for recent death his wife , Amelia Folch (Aura Garrido) , she is a XIX Century valiant and feminist woman and Alonso De Entrerríos (Nacho Fresneda) , a XVI Century captain Alatristre-lookalike . All of them wind up throwing into their past and future world , but they have to stay alive . The protagonist group will have to confront deal of dangers and adventures and will fight heinous characters such as Lola Mendieta (Natalia Millán) , Napoleon's spies and even Himmler ; ending for themselves against marauding spies who attempt to change history . The group must survive in ancient centuries long enough to resolve the missions assigned by the ¨Ministerio Del Tiempo¨ . Our starring friends even involving into love intrigues , as Amelia meets Lope De Vega and , foiling history , they fall in love . Can our loyal agents survive twisted plots , violent battles in world history and make it back to the 21st century alive ? .

Imaginative as well as lush fantasy about some fantastic doors in which our heroes one time enter , they take on several adventures and dangers . This splendid series blends action , historical events , suspense , battles , intrigue and results to be a lot amusing . This is a far-fetching but acceptable story about intrepid agents traveling backward in time to just to discover weird incidents and save the world and they will fight all kinds of risks to get their purports . From start to finish fantasy , action , duels and delightful adventures are interminable . The protagonist group will have to confront deal of dangers and to run the risks of other times . There are great budget , just amusement enough to cover production gaps and some flaws . As an important group of re-enactors and extras were used for soldiers in battle sequences and recreations of historical moments . Fine special effects mostly made by CGI and liking performances by the leads manage to keep this one afloat .

The picture is partially based on historical events such as ¨the defeat of Armada invincible (1588)¨ and with appearance of several famous roles . As in first episode , our starring go back to Spanish Independence War , they have to avoid Napoleon's spies to kill a known Guerrillero : Martin Diaz El Empecinado ; in second episode , our beloved protagonists try to impede Lope De Vega Y Carpio well played by Victor Clavijo aboard a galleon with a fateful destination . There also appears Velazquez (Julian Villagrán) , Salvador Dalí (Enrique Alcides) , El Empecinado (Keuchkerian) and Isabella the Catholic , here Michelle Jenner reprised her role of from the series Isabel (2011) , the cameo was recorded on the same stage sets as Isabel (2011) before they were dismantled , Rodolfo Sancho played Ferdinand The Catholic on the same series . And even Himmler (David Luque) attempting to Francisco Franco to prevent the meeting in Hendaya in which accorded Spanish neutrality in WWII . Pablo Olivares and Javier Olivares were the excellent creators of 8 episodes from this original series . Being realized in memoriam of Pablo Olivares who recently and unfortunately passed away . The chapters were well directed by Abigail Schaaff , Marc Vigil and Jorge Dorado
