Very far from "Mirindas asesinas" and "El día de la bestia"
Along this week I have heard by several Spanish media how wonderful will this TV series would be. They told we would enjoy the best Álex de la Iglesia, the director whose film "El día de la bestia" and short "Mirindas asesinas" made me discover a new dimension of sense of humour and irony. But "Plutón BRB Nero" is very far from that, at least its first chapter ("El origen de Roswell"), so I hope the series improves in the next episode. In "El origen de Roswell" I have found a very easy humour, almost childish. It intends to be a parody of science-fiction cinema and a way to critizice some aspects of 21st century reality towards a story which happens in the 26th century... But the real thing is that de la Iglesia does not get any of his purposes: I can't see a real denounce of the dark side of the 21st century, and not a brilliant parody of futurist films. It was a very absurd story that fortunately it just took 35 minutes.
