dc.description.abstract This paper suggests that J. J. Abrams’ serial universe has been shaped by the management of truth and time bound to the great feminine protagonists in Felicty (WB, 1998-2002), Alias (ABC, 2001-2006) and Fringe (FOX, 2008-2013), analyzed as a progression at three levels: the character’s heroic identity, the thematic and generic mutations that take shape, and the ideas of serial timing that undermine space-time continuity. From a series that assimilates its moulds and plays at denouncing them (Felicity) to a series exploring the traps of time by inhabiting its limits (Alias), and one that transforms such ambiguities into an ontological division between parallel universes (Fringe).
dc.description.abstract El presente artículo analiza cómo el universo serial de J. J. Abrams ha evolucionado a partir de la gestión de la verdad y el tiempo ligada a sus grandes protagonistas femeninas en Felicity (WB, 1998-2002), Alias (ABC, 2001-2006) y Fringe (FOX, 2008-2013), mediante una progresión a tres niveles: la identidad cambiante de sus heroínas, las mutaciones genéricas que corrompen tal identidad, y las ideas de temporalidad serial que socavan la continuidad espacio-tiempo. De una serie que asimila sus moldes y juega a denunciarlos (Felicity) a otra que explora las trampas del tiempo habitando sus límites (Alias), y a otra que transforma esos interrogantes en una división ontológica entre universos paralelos (Fringe).
