La Audiencia Nacional no tiene precisamente un lustroso historial de escrupuloso respeto a la libertad de expresión. En 2003 el diario vasco Egunkaria fue cerrado por decisión del juez Del Olmo y dos años más tarde ordenó liquidar las empresas intervenidas en dicha operación. En 2010, cuando el daño ya era irreparable, la Audiencia Nacional hizo pública la absolución de los imputados de Egunkaria por pertenencia a banda armada. El mismo juez, en 2007, ordenó la retirada de los kioscos de una portada de El Jueves con una viñeta satírica sobre los Príncipes de Asturias por un presunto delito de injurias a la Corona que paradójicamente proporcionó a la caricatura una publicidad sin precedentes.

Ricky Gervais in “Derek”: the depths of emotional intelligence

It’s worth to see it thousands times more than 99’9% of all american TV series (like “Extras”, “The Office”, “Life’s too short” and most things that have came out from Gervais mind).

“I’m not clever or good looking, but I am kind”

Further the controversy generated by the perception of some groups that say it mocks mentally handicapped people, the truth is that, at least in the pilot, they are shown like the human beings with feelings they really are. Gervais has taken “British TV comedies” subgenre to a next level of excellence  (like Monty Python did in their time) and “Derek” is just another step in that way.  I just can’t wait to see the rest of the whole season.

The book’s worth it a reading, Argentine artist Ignacio Minaverry has really managed to compose a beautiful “travels & mistery” tale full of small details and elusive colours, with interesting characters and a well told story.Dora was considered the best Argentine comic of 2009.
