‘Once Upon A Time’ 5×20 Preview “Firebird”

The path of true love never did run smooth, but oh, it runs. That’s where this week’s episode finds Hook and Emma – facing a challenge that could change this story for good. Are these two really true love? We’re…

‘Game of Thrones’ 6×01 “The Red Woman” Roundtable

Game of Thrones returned last week, with an episode that provided more questions than answers. Is Jon Snow coming back? What does this season have in store for Daenerys? What exactly is going on in Dorne? Who’s first on Cersei’s…

‘Hunters’ 1×03 Review: Maid of Orleans

One of these days, this show will make sense. I think. I hope. Today, however, is not that day. But, at least, in “Maid of Orleans,” the show tries, at last, to provide some backstory. It tries to get us…

‘Once Upon A Time’ 5×19 Review “Sisters”

I’m going to try something new this week. Mostly, because this episode was all about Regina/Cora/Zelena, but also because, well new is fun. And this is, quite possibly, the last we will ever see of Cora. And you can say…

‘Outlander’ 2X03 Preview Guide: “Useful Occupations and Deceptions”

All the scheming starts to take it’s toll on Claire and Jamie’s relationship in “Useful Occupations and Deceptions.” And that’s just the way of things, isn’t it? It’s like we can’t have nice things, not completely. Or like they can’t.…

‘Once Upon A Time’ 5×19 Preview “Sisters”

It seems like we can never quite get rid of Cora. Or of Zelena, for that matter. Both are featured heavily in tomorrow’s episode, alongside Regina, if the episode title “Sisters” is to be believed. And, honestly, as much as…

‘Game of Thrones’ Speculation Roundtable

Game of Thrones is back tomorrow! Can you believe that? I can’t. It feels like yesterday that Jon Snow was bleeding to death and we were screaming at the television to NOT LET IT END LIKE THAT! And now, here we…

Ruby Slippers is not about Swan Queen, it’s about Ruby Slippers

Last week, Once Upon A Time introduced the first LGBT couple in the show’s history. In fact, it introduced them, broke them apart and gave them a true love love’s kiss, all in one episode. To some people, it was…

My Fandom: Once Upon A Time (around the world)

Fandom is a funny place. It’s also a wonderful place, a scary place, a life-changing one. Anyone who hasn’t experienced the sense of community, the belonging, will never be able to understand what it means to share something you love…

‘American Gods’ begins production

We’re trying to keep our cool here. We’re trying really hard. We’re just failing at it. Because ‘American Gods’ is coming, and we here at Fangirlish couldn’t be more excited about it. The long awaited adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed…

The Kendra Saunders Problem

Ever since Kendra Saunders was first introduced back on The Flash, I’ve tried to connect with her. Female superheroes are a dime a dozen and any strong, powerful woman introduced on television gets my loyalty by default. Or, at least,…

Hunters 1×02 Review “Messages”

Clarity is a strange thing, especially in television. You ask for it, and then, when you get it, sometimes it can be all a bit anticlimactic. Yes, you wanted the answer, but you also kind of wanted the answer to…

‘Once Upon A Time’ Review 5×18 “Ruby Slippers”

Well, color me surprised. And excited. I didn’t have high hopes for this hour. Not because I have anything against Ruby, Mulan or Dorothy in particular, but because after a few episodes of a whole lot of Rumbelle, Zelena and…

‘Once Upon A Time’ 5×18 Preview “Ruby Slippers”

Ruby is back! And that’s about all I can say about this episode. I love Ruby, don’t get me wrong, but we’re getting to the end of the season, aren’t we? Where are the high stakes? Where’s the drama? Where’s…

‘Hunters’ 1×01 Review “The Beginning & The End”

There’s something about ‘Hunters’ that makes you keep watching. It’s not its clarity, because if there’s one thing I can unequivocally state after watching “The Beginning & The End” is that I have no earthly clue what’s going on or…
