Once Upon a Time Season 3.04 Review: Nasty Habits

Once Upon a Time Season 3.04 Review: Nasty Habits

Once Upon a Time Season 3.04 Review: Nasty Habits My long awaited Rumple flashback has left me feeling a bit cold. While the Dark One has always been a fascinating character study, after two seasons, apparently there is little left to investigate. Or, what is left is being held in reserve for some unknown reason. At the very least, Once has decided to offer a glimpse into a story that […]

Once Upon a Time Season 3.02 Review: Lost Girl

Once Upon a Time Season 3.02 Review: Lost Girl

Once Upon a Time Season 3.02 Review: Lost Girl After a mostly flashback-less premiere, we return to the format we have come to expect from OUAT: the present mixed with thematically related FTL flashbacks.  Given the importance of everything happening in Neverland, the time spent away seemed unjustified, so let’s start with the least important moments and work our way to the meatier stuff at the end. Deceiving the Ones […]

Once Upon a Time Season 3.01 Review: Heart of the Truest Believer

Once Upon a Time Season 3.01 Review: Heart of the Truest Believer I have never seen a series do as many recap specials as Once Upon a Time. Yes, the narrative is crazy complicated, but don’t they know we have it covered? Suffice it to say, Once Upon a Time: Journey to Neverland basically covered everything we already know. If you need a refresher, here’s what you need to know: […]

Once Upon a Time Season 2.22 Review: And Straight on ‘Til Morning

Once Upon a Time Season 2.22 Review: And Straight on 'Til Morning

Once Upon a Time Season 2.22 Review: And Straight on ‘Til Morning We have come to the end of a rather uneven season. We have traveled between five different worlds and bounced back and forth in the timeline, but where has that left us? At a season finale that may have been rather predictable but still managed to produce the emotions, tie things together, and hint at wonderful things to […]

Once Upon a Time Season 2.21 Review: Second Star to the Right

Once Upon a Time Season 2.21 Review: Second Star to the Right Long ago in the Enchanted Forest, a little boy tried to convince his father to leave to a land without magic, a land where he would no longer be the Dark One and could return to being just Rumplestitlskin. Unfortunately, that boy, Baelfire, fell into the magic portal alone and was transported to a new land: London, England. […]

Once Upon a Time Season 2.20 Review: The Evil Queen

Once Upon a Time Season 2.20 Review: The Evil Queen Today we set the stage for the final two episodes of season two! So it should come as no surprise that the focus of the day is Regina and her quest for vengeance. As a show adds more episodes, it is easy to become bored with a character that repeatedly makes the same mistakes without any sense of growth. With […]

Once Upon a Time Season 2.19 Review: Lacey

Once Upon a Time Season 2.19 Review: Lacey

Once Upon a Time Season 2.19 Review: Lacey A tale as old as time. The good girl falls for the bad boy because she thinks that she can change him. I’m pretty sure that only works in fairytales. But what happens when something comes between the bad boy and the good girl? Will he revert to his old ways, or will her better influence prevail? What if the good girl […]

Once Upon a Time Mid Season 2 Review: The Price of Magic

Once Upon a Time Mid Season 2 Review: The Price of Magic

Once Upon a Time Mid Season 2 Review: The Price of Magic Hello again, my lovelies! I am back, with what essentially amounts to a recap of a recap. Given the many hiatuses that have plagued this season of Once, a little refresher prior to the episodes leading up to the finale cannot hurt. Still, a part of me hoped for some new insight into the series with an extended […]
