‘Once Upon A Time’ 5×12 Panel: “Souls of the Departed”

Hello, Oncers! We’re back. This IS a post-episode panel. We have stuff to talk about! That’s, of course, good news. We’ve missed our show. I’ve missed it. But, on the flip side, that also means pain is coming our way.…

‘Once Upon A Time’ 5×12 Review: “Souls of the Departed”

7 Times Killian Jones’s Hair Game Was Stronger Than Ours

I’ve dedicated plenty a tweet to the subject of Killian Jones’s hair, especially in Season Five. Colin O’Donoghue is a handsome guy who’s clearly got the good genes on his side, but he also must have a hell of a…

‘Once Upon A Time’ – I’m Thankful for Hook

A few months ago I started this series with Emma, and it feels somewhat fitting that I’m ending it today, with Captain Hook. I like, or at least appreciate things, about most of the characters in this show, but my…

‘Once Upon A Time’ – I’m Thankful for Henry

Remember the first episode? Remember that wide-eyed kid who knocked on Emma’s door and brought with him magic and adventure? Remember that looking at him and realizing he really, really believed? Remember that little face full of hope and trust…

‘Once Upon A Time’ – I’m Thankful for Robin Hood

More than a Disney kid, I was a books kid. Sure, I watched the pre-requisite Disney movies, but even when I was very, very young, I didn’t need visuals to fall in love with a character. Words worked just fine…

‘Once Upon A Time’ – I’m Thankful for Belle

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I watched Beauty and the Beast for the first time, and fell in love with Belle. It was easy back then, she was kind, smart, and she LIKED BOOKS. I…

‘Once Upon A Time’ – I’m thankful for Rumplestiltskin

Strangely enough, it’s easier for me to write this post about Rumple today than it would have been a month ago. For years I’ve been asking Once Upon A Time to do exactly what they did in the midseason finale…
