‘Once Upon A Time’ Roundtable “The Final Battle Pt1 and Pt2”

This is …the end. Or, at least an end. And boy, we’re not sure if we should smile or cry. Smile because …it was a good end. A satisfying one. One that paid tribute to the message of hope that…

‘Once Upon A Time’ Roundtable “The Song in Your Heart”

With the avalanche of Once Upon A Time news assaulting us this week it’s sometimes hard to focus on the last episode we saw – a damn shame, because the musical episode was, perhaps, the best hour this show has…

‘Once Upon A Time’ Roundtable “The Black Fairy”

Rumple betrayed our heroes …again. And yet, that was about the only thing that stayed consistent in this episode. That and Robert Carlyle delivering a masterful performance as, arguably, one of the most complicated characters on this show. Because backstory…

‘Once Upon A Time’ Roundtable “Where Bluebirds Fly”

Well, who would have thought, Zelena got a redemption arc. She also got some emotional and real moments with her sister, and hey, she saved the day in the end, which I guess just proves that everyone can save the…

‘Once Upon A Time’ Roundtable “Awake”

Well, that happened. And by that I mean, well …all of that. Because, that was a good episode, wasn’t it? Wait, no …that was a great episode. That was the kind of episode I was starting to think Once Upon…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Mother’s Little Helper”

Still no Captain Swan reunion. *sighs* But hey, at least Gideon isn’t really a bad guy? Silver linings and all. Plus, there was a little Snow/Emma bonding (which is more than we ever get), an honest Rumbelle conversation and a…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “A Wondrous Place”

No Captain Swan reunion, yet. But a Jaladdin TLK! A princess team-up! Jasmine finding the hero within! The return of Ariel! There were a lot of good things in this episode – and there were some questionable writing choices when…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Page 23”

Okay, Once Upon A Time. That really, really wasn’t what I expected. Kudos to you. Not just for putting the Evil Queen story-line to rest in the best possible way, but for giving Outlaw Queen, or a version of it,…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Ill-Boding Patterns”

So …Captain Swan is engaged! And Hook didn’t get a chance to confess his secrets. What a bunch of …drama. Though, seeing it all develop, it was hard to blame him. It was hard to blame her. It’s still possible…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Murder Most Foul”

What a great episode. What a twist. Not because it was unexpected per se, but because every time we thought about the possibility, we pushed it away from our minds. We just didn’t want it to be true. But then…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Tougher Than The Rest”

Once Upon A Time is finally back! And, so are we – because, as usual, we have a lot of feels about what happened in this episode. Good feels, bad feels, uh feels. This show usually delivers in all respects!…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Wish You Were Here”

That was a tad …anticlimactic? I mean, I see what you were going for, Once Upon A Time. Especially if I tilt my head to the side and sort of squint. Which kinda means you didn’t quite hit the mark…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Changelings”

Oh, Belle. I just want to give you a hug. Not that a hug will help. Nothing will help at this point. There’s no comfort, not even in knowing you did the right thing. Because the Rumple we’ve seen the…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “I’ll Be Your Mirror”

So Henry has grown up. That’s about the only thing that we learned from “I’ll Be Your Mirror.” That and Rumple’s an asshole, but I’m pretty sure we knew that. This is just like the 290472782372th confirmation. And yes, there’s…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Heartless”

That was a twist …wasn’t it? Maybe I’d been lulled into a false sense of security. Maybe I was just too used to the Evil Queen never getting what she wanted. Either way, Once Upon A Time, six seasons in,…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Dark Waters”

Family is what you make of it. Family is not just the people who share your blood, but the people you love, and who love you back. That was the message of an emotional episode of Once Upon A Time…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Street Rats”

This savior business is not as cool as advertised, is it? After all, it’s not just one big moment of …saving. It’s a constant struggle to save and save and just …save. People. Things. Savior is something you are 24/7.…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “Strange Case”

Goodbye Mr. Jekyll. So long Mr. Hyde. We barely knew ye. It wasn’t such a strange case after all. This episode was way more interesting for what it presented in Storybrooke, and how our characters story-lines entwined with Jekyll and Hyde’s,…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “The Other Shoe”

Well, that was a good episode, wasn’t it? The flashbacks were engaging, the present stuff was interesting, moving and it gave the actors a chance to show their range. Oh, yes, and the Evil Queen and the Not-so-evil-stepsister’s outfits slayed. There’s…

Once Upon A Time Roundtable “A Bitter Draught”

Here we go again! Season 6 of Once Upon A Time is now two episodes old, and though this episode was a bit ….eh, slow, there are still a lot of things to go over.  Because we’re fans. And we have…
