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 »

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 »

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 »
