Once Upon a Time Post Mortem – The Doctor

No, not Doctor Who (although, I admit a traveling Time Lord in Storybrooke would be hysterical…but I digress…). But before I dive into the episode, can I just experience some sympathy for David Anders, he has played many an amputee—from Sark on Alias to the recently deceased John Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries (ouch the fingers), but this time he lost his whole arm—had it ripped right off.  Can I have a small “ow” of sympathy for him? Okay, now onto our episode. Dead is Dead Or is it? After being mostly absent for two episodes, Regina’s character—and most of […]

Once Upon a Time Post Mortem: Lady of the Lake

The Lady of the Lake title of last night’s Once Upon a Time was a little misleading—or was it? The theme for the episode tightly focused on the love between a parent and a child and wow did they show a wide variety of this type of love: ·         Grandpa James(Charming) & Henry ·         Regina & Henry ·         Snow & Emma ·         Emma & Henry ·         Jefferson & Grace ·         Cora & Regina ·         James & His Mother ·         George & James The episode also managed to make me feel sympathy for Regina—call me heartless, but even when we learned […]

Once Upon a Time Post Mortem: We Are Both

After an action packed season premiere, We Are Both, episode 2×02 sought to answer some questions, but kept a tight focus on our Storybrooke characters rather than the Enchanted Forest.

The Wicked Queen Regina never wanted to be evil or powerful or queen for that matter. During the first season we met her exceptionally wicked mother Cora played by Barbara Hershey. Perverted by magic, Cora wanted Regina to make a […]

Once Upon a Time – Love, Romance and Fantasy

Regina wants Emma gone Once Upon a Time is one of those series that seems tailor made for me.  It’s got fantasy, romance and fairy tales.  What more could I ask for?  I chatted about it over in my Reel Vixen blog after seeing the pilot, but three episodes in and I am even more in love with the show than I was when it started.   Fresh Twists The biggest selling point for me is the fresh twists on the old fairytales.  I’ll be honest, Snow White is not my favorite story and I wasn’t thrilled with the idea […]
