Once Upon a Time Season 1 Episode 8

Desperate Souls

This was a Rumpelstiltskin-centric episode.  As I’d expect they gave a dark and tortured back story for this character.  Basically he made a deal without understanding what the terms were and that’s why he’s so conscientious about the terms of his dealings now.  I don’t know I was kind of underwhelmed.

So here’s my Once Upon a Time 1x 08 Review/Reactions Read more…


Once Upon a Time Season 1 Episode 7

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

Guys I’ve gotta be honest.   I’m really worried about this show.  I think it was originally supposed to be a one season thing, but now it’s been renewed for a second season.  I’ve got a sinking feeling that means that nothing is going to get resolved until the show ends.  It’s just gonna keep breaking my heart with near misses, people almost figuring out who/what they are and getting foiled by Regina at the last minute.

Don’t get me wrong I am continually delighted by the show.  I love finding out who people are and watching them interact in both Storybook and Storybrooke.  And the transitions.  Lord knows how much I love a good transition.  I guess only time will tell how long I can handle my heart getting broken by this show.

Anyway on to Once Upon a Time 01×07

Once Upon a Time Season 1 Episode 6

This week, more parent-child dysfunctional relationships, and a lot of oh no!

I also realized in this review how confusing it is to try and identify characters in this show.  So I guess I’m gonna stick with their names in whatever “world” the scene I’m talking about is in.  Snow White in Story Book land and Mary/Miss Blanchard in Storybrooke world.  So far a lot of the character’s real world names are riffs on their fairy tale names so that makes it easier.

That Still Small Voice

So somehow the trailer from last week made me think that real-world Jiminy Cricket wanted to become a woman or something, but I was pleased that that’s not what the episode was about.

It was about being who you want to be, no matter who is around you.  “Always let your conscience be your guide.”  Which seems appropriate for a Jiminy Cricket-centric episode.

Once Upon a Time Season 1 Episode 1

I’m excited for this show.  All i know is its about like parallel worlds?  The real world and the fairytale world.  And cameron from house is in it along with ginnifer goodwinn and they forgot that they’re fairy tale characters.  I hope its not too twee for me, but I don’t really think there’s a high risk of that because I kind of love whimsy.

Onto my review for the pilot episode of Once Upon a Time
