Once Upon A Time: ‘Red-Handed’

“I’m pretty sure I’m just going to screw it up. I mean, I’ll screw it up with flair, but…” Since the pilot of this show, one of the stories I have most been looking forward to is Red Riding Hood’s, perhaps because she is such an iconic fairy-tale character. This week, we finally got it …

Once Upon A Time: ‘Dreamy’

“You can do anything as long as you can dream it” Despite being mostly filler, this was actually an enjoyable episode of Once Upon A Time which focused on a recurring character that we haven’t seen that much of so far: Leroy/Grumpy. We were briefly told Grumpy’s story back in 7:15 AM, although that story …

Once Upon A Time: ‘What Happened To Frederick’

“True love isn’t easy, but it must be fought for. Because once you find it, it can never be replaced.” Back in 7:15 AM, when Mary Margaret and David started seeing each other, it was clear that their relationship wasn’t going to end well and this week featured the climax of that plot. Perhaps unsurprisingly …

Once Upon A Time: ‘Skin Deep’

“You could have had happiness if you had just believed that someone could want you” My slight criticism of last week’s episode was that it was fairly plot-heavy rather than character-driven; fortunately, this week was the opposite and we got one of the best episodes of the season so far. Rumpelstiltskin/Mr Gold is by far …

Once Upon A Time: ‘Fruit of the Poisonous Tree’

“Be careful. Emotional entanglements can lead us down very dangerous paths” This week’s episode may as well have been called The Long Con, as in both the Fairy Tale Realm and Storybrooke the main plot was of the Evil Queen/Regina executing a carefully planned out trick in order to get something she wanted. In the …

Once Upon A Time: ‘7:15 AM’

“The only thing that needed protecting is destroyed: my heart” This episode of Once Upon A Time was all about love; or, more specifically, about how painful love can be. Unsurprisingly, this came in the form of Snow White and Prince Charming’s story in the Fairy Tale Realm and their counterparts Mary Margaret and David’s …

Once Upon A Time: ‘True North’

“A family always needs to be able to find one another” This week’s episode continued with the theme of parents and children being separated, as we looked at the story of Hansel and Gretel. I have a fondness for the story of Hansel and Gretel as it was the play my school did a few …

Once Upon A Time: ‘Desperate Souls’

“That’s the thing about children. Before you know it, you lose them.” While it didn’t have the emotional punch of last week’s episode, this was still a great episode of Once Upon A Time as we delved into Rumplestiltskin’s backstory. It turns out Rumple wasn’t always the creature we’ve seen in previous flashbacks, which I …

Once Upon A Time: ‘The Heart is a Lonely Hunter’

 “I’d rather feel nothing than settle for less.” Wow. I now totally understand why this show has been such a success in the US. I mean, I’ve enjoyed it in the last few weeks, but this week’s episode really took it to another level. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter had everything a fantastic episode …

Once Upon A Time: ‘The Shepherd’

“Your freedom to choose is more important than anything” Once Upon A Time is one of my favourite new shows, plus it is one which I watch ‘live’ instead of recorded, so my posts may be slightly different from my general TV posts, like yesterday’s. I will probably have more bullet points and ideas, rather …
