Now in its third season on ABC, Sundays at 8 PM, ONCE UPON A TIME has finished its sojourn in Neverland, with Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) heroically sacrificing himself to stop Peter Pan (Robbie Kay) – who is actually Rumplestiltskin’s father! – from controlling everything and everyone. A curse sent many of the characters back from Storybrooke to the Enchanted Forest, while Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and her son Henry (Jared S. Gilmore) had their memories altered to believe they’d always lived in New York. Another curse has brought our people back to Storybrooke, and Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) has restored […]Read On »

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, on ABC Thursdays at 8 PM, takes place in the same overall universe as ONCE UPON A TIME, but it’s very much its own story. Created by ONCE inventors Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, along with Zack Estrin and Jane Espenson, WONDERLAND gives us an Alice, played by Sophie Lowe as a young woman, who has found true love in Wonderland with Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), the Genie of the Lamp. When Alice wrongly believed she’d seen Cyrus die, she went back to her version of England, where doctors are threatening to lobotomize her into […]Read On »

In ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, ABC Thursdays at 8 PM, ONCE UPON A TIME creators/executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have (with fellow WONDERLAND creators Zack Estrin and Jane Espenson) woven together a story in the same universe as their mothership (now in its third season on ABC, Sundays at 8 PM). We’ve visited Wonderland before with Sebastian Stan’s Mad Hatter and Barbara Hershey’s Queen of Hearts. Those characters don’t show up in the new series, which combines traditional elements from Lewis Carroll’s classics ALICE IN WONDERLAND and ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS with Disney’s ALADDIN. Here, Alice […]Read On »

Wonderland, the absurdist magical realm originally created by Lewis Carroll in ALICE IN WONDERLAND, has already been visited by the characters in ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME. This means that viewers of ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, the ONCE spin-off that premieres Thursday, October 10 at 8 PM, will have seen the place before, but the characters are all new. Alice (Sophie Lowe) is trapped in an England where no one believes she’s been to Wonderland – and she’s desperate to return so she can rescue her true love Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), who is the Genie of the Lamp, […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “Lacey”

Emilie De Ravin in ONCE UPON A TIME - Season 2 - "Lacey" | ©2013 ABC/Jack Rowand

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz Director: Milan Cheylov Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 21, 2013 There are bits and pieces of other storylines going on in the “Lacey” episode of ONCE UPON A TIME but the larger story is about Mr. Gold (Robert Carlysle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin). It’s kind of a sad story, but it doesn’t really seem to go anywhere. I suspect it’s mostly about a set up for the big season finale on May 12. Still it’s Regina (Lana Parilla) who […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “Selfless, Brave and True”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Robert Hull & Kalinda Vasquez Director: Ralph Hemecker Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 24, 2013 Well, well, well. It looks like we’re taking a step back from the depths of darkness (finally) on ONCE UPON A TIME. “Selfless, Brave and True” may be all the things Mary Margaret/Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) normally is, but it’s Pinocchio/August (Eion Bailey) who gets to play those cards for a change. Whew! It finally feels like we’re getting back on track here and it’s about time. We start on October 24, […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “Welcome to Storybrooke”

Lana Parrila in ONCE UPON A TIME - Season 2 - "Welcome to Storybrooke" | ©2013 ABC/Jack Rowand

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Ian Goldberg & Andrew Chambliss Director: David M. Barrett Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 17, 2013 Fine. I get it. Taking ONCE UPON A TIME to a darker place opens up a lot of room for interesting character growth and additional storylines. That makes sense. It’s good writing. Fine. But there’s a big difference between darker and the roiling pit of self-destructive despair we find ourselves in with “Welcome to Storybrooke.” Dark is interesting. Despair is merely depressing and depression, with its inherent lassitude is an awfully hard […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “The Miller’s Daughter”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Jane Espenson Director: Ralph Hemecker Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 10, 2013 I have been saying since last season that I thought Cora (Barbara Hershey), “The Miller’s Daughter,” was, in fact, that miller’s daughter – you know, the one that got caught up in the original Rumpelstiltskin story, when her father bragged that she could spin straw into gold. Well, I was right and ONCE UPON A TIME has worked its magical twist once again, and very nicely turned that story on its ear in one intense episode. However, I […]Read On »

TV Review: ONCE UPON A TIME – Season 2 – “The Queen is Dead”

Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Daniel T. Thomsen & David H. Goodman Director: Gwyneth Horder Payton Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 3, 2013 It’s almost always fun to get a charcter’s back story, and on ONCE UPON A TIME, those back stories have made for some great set-ups. But in “The Queen is Dead,” the story of Snow and her mother’s death, there’s just a meanness and a progressing darkness to the whole proceeding that doesn’t quite fit the world of the show as we know it. You end the episode […]Read On »
