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 »

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”

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 »

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 »

John Ross (Josh Henderson) finally gets Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) to believe him when he told her that her father Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) is responsible for the Ewing rig explosion.

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 2 – “A Call to Arms”

DALLAS - Season 2 - "A Call To Arms" | ©2013 TNT/Zade Rosenthal

Stars: Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Gail Gilchriest Director: Ken Topolsky Network: TNT, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: April 8th,  2013 Sex, drugs and lies pretty much sums up this week’s DALLAS. Everyone plots, schemes and lies to get what they want. So, it makes sense when even the truth is too much for some. When John Ross (Josh Henderson) tells Pamela (Julia Gonzalo) her father was to blame for the explosion that killed her babies she hardly believes him, throwing him out. Sometimes it’s easier to live a fallacy […]Read On »

Stars: Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Aaron Allen Director: Millicent Shelton Network: TNT, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: April 1st,   2013 It’s the Ewings vs. Barnes and it is on! High voltage surrounds the Ewing family as Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) hooks up with Harris Ryland (Mitch Pileggi) to take down the family. I don’t know how these people sleep at night! The stress, the tragedies, the hysteria — it’s enough to put you in a loony bin! Still, without the drama we wouldn’t have the intrigue that the show […]Read On »

DALLAS - Season 2 - "Guilt and Innocence" | ©2013 TNT/Zade Rosenthal

Stars: Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Robert Rovner Director: Jesse Bochco Network: TNT, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: March 25th, 2013 Explosive is more than one way to describe this week’s DALLAS episode “Guilt and Innocence.” Relationships implode while Ewing Enterprises is severely damaged by the destruction that almost cost the lives of many and put the lives of Pamela’s (Julie Gonzalo) and Christopher’s (Jesse Metcalfe) babies in harm’s way. Oh, but that isn’t half of it. The drama heats up between Harris (Mitch Pileggi) and his mother (Judith Light) […]Read On »
