it’s based off a real-life mexican poet who is widely considered the first published feminist of the new world.
it even includes some of her poems/writings as voiceovers
also there’s speculation that she was a lesbian and that’s touched upon in the show!!! a lesbian nun!!!!!
it doesn’t ignore what was happening outside of the court. that is, it shows the racism and colonization in really jarring scenes imo. personally i wish it had been in it a little more, and i especially wish they’d included part of sor juana’s loa to divine narcissus, but… it is what it is.
personally i love the acting and the plots and the antagonists are just so annoying like let my girl write!!!! let her live!!!!
it’s only seven episodes long
the cinematography is honestly so beautiful??? some of the shots still have me speechless they’re just so breathtaking and vibrant.
literally i just love it so much and that might be because i love sor juana and i’m biased but also i just? really love it???
like it honestly did just such a good job imagining her life and it is just so beautiful
You were a babysitter, but you wanted to be more. Deciding to create a cooking video, you were shocked when it garnered the attention of a well known actor. Soon the attention becomes something neither of you can ignore.
You were heartbroken. Here you had worked hard, and had thought you had done an amazing job. And it was all blown to bits when Misha declared that you had copied the idea from him. Before answering, you decided to do a little research of your own.
Typing his name into the Youtube search engine, you sighed when you saw hundreds of conventions videos. Normally, you enjoyed watching them, wishing that someday you could afford to go to one, but it wasn’t what you were looking for. Finally, you found his youtube page, and you clicked on it, noticing right away his cooking videos. Frowning you clicked on the first one, watching as Misha went shopping with his kids, then went home and let them mix, and cook everything, making pasta with jam sauce. It was adorable, and hilarious, and his kids were the cutest. It was a lot like yours which surprised you.
nursey and dex fucking love diners, drive-ins, and dives and they 110% quote guy fieri to each other, specifically nursey quotes it whenever dex is cooking/helping bitty. (”oh boy, dex is in the kitchen! looks like we’re riding the bus to flavortown!” “this cranberry sauce is MONEY, poindexter.” “shit, dex, this sandwich is OUT OF BOUNDS.” etc.) anyway when they graduate they go on a triple D road-trip across the country and hit, like, every place from the show
