Once Upon A Time, S6E6: “Dark Waters”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • That’s right Killian. No one will ever look for tools in a toolbox in a tool shed. 
  • Zelina lost her babysitter. Sad!
  • Oh honey, let him go. He’s just not that into Agrabah. 
  • What is Emma, the Town Lost and Found?  I think Jasmine can handle looking down the street for Aladdin on her own. 
  • No wonder the saviors get used up so fast. 
  • I’m not sure pirates historically had a huge grapefruit-based diet. 
  • Parilla is loving this season. 
  • Killian’s master secateur plan lasted all of about five minutes. 
  • I’ve seen Nemo, sir, and you are no James Mason. 
  • I really thought he was going to say “purpose,” instead of “family.”
  • I have still never bought the idea that Hook was so attached to Mila that he took on this life-long vendetta against Rumple for her. 
  • I tend to think his hand was kind of a bigger loss. And his pride. 
  • I guess Henry hasn’t been caught up on his Walt Disney Studio Live Action film catalog. 
  • Ugh. Belle is such a sap. 
  • Henry seems a little too bright to be so totally swayed by the Evil Queen so fast. 
  • I like how Nemo doesn’t pay attention to the huge monster or the flailing and screaming until someone actually says “Nemo.”
  • He’s mastered the art of selective attention. 
  • Carlyle and Parilla’s scenes are always my favorites. Such good takes on the different aspects of menace. 
  • Emma’s kind of fond of parking on the wrong side of the road. 
  • Maybe the ultimate problem with the savior, is that they inhibit people from saving themselves. 
  • Henry’s getting pretty big to still be playing the kid card. 
  • Well that could have gone better. 
  • The Jones family has kind of a genetic predisposition towards regret killings. 
  • So if Agrabah is gone, why’s Jasmine so anxious to find Aladddin anyway?
  • Remember last week when Snow decided she really wanted to be a teacher?  And before that, when she decided that she really didn’t want to be Mary Margaret anymore?
  • Now with the hospital volunteer work, it’s like she’s basically regressed back to Mary Margaret at her most passive. 
  • All she needs is to sleep with Dr. Whale again to finish it off. 
  • Belle’s plot of ludicrous indecision is so non-compelling. 
  • I really don’t get the relative timelines of the Untold Stories. 
  • Good thing Emma and Hook have a relationship based on mutual distrust. 
  • Didn’t Rumple just say his most important lesson was “don’t take what’s mine?”
  • I don’t know how good a student Regina was. 
  • Belle continues her role as the Town Dupe. 
  • Every time actors have a scene where they have to be that close together, my flesh crawls. Personal bubble!

Once Upon A Time, S6E1: “The Savior”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • Ok, here we go again. 
  • Weird that they didn’t use the same dude for Jafar as in “Once Upon A Time in Wonderland.”
  • Why “The Giving Tree” is such a horror show to give your children. 
  • Glad Snow had time to grab her bow and arrows. 
  • You would think that subconjunctival hemorrhage would have healed by this time. 
  • Hm. Being a Savior gives you Parkinson’s?
  • How does Hyde know stuff Rumple doesn’t?
  • New ‘do for Rumple this season. Looks younger. 
  • Regina and Zelena:  You loved them as evil sorceresses, now enjoy them as Felix Unger and Oscar Madison in “The Odd Couple.”
  • Emma got that PTSD going. 
  • Jekyll is a fast machinist, I’ll give him that. 
  • How many years has Archie been out getting coffee?!
  • Maybe, here’s a thought: You shouldn’t constantly go to your worst enemy for solutions to your problems. 
  • Morpheus looking way better than Gaiman painted him. 
  • Robert Carlyle must be like “really?  The green makeup again?”
  • These two are pretty lucky it’s the 25th anniversary of “Beauty and the Beast” this year. 
  • Well, that relationship is something that’s going to take a little work. 
  • Ok, that relationship is something that’s going to take a little work. 
  • The Oracle!  Because she never screws anybody up. 
  • Rumple is going to have to work pretty fast if he has to get her going in an hour, TBH.
  • If they had given him three days, maybe we could have gotten “Kiss the Girl” in there too.
  • You are TOTES LYING Rumple. 
  • …What?
  • Their kid is Morpheus?!
  • We’ve heard this song before, Belle. I’m from Missouri. 
  • On the upside, I think we’ve learned that death isn’t necessarily a permanent condition.
  • Glad that in the last FIVE YEARS, Emma learned exactly nothing about sharing her problems with her loved ones. 
  • Nice scene with Regina and Snow.  I feel like Parilla continues to be the Most Improved of this cast as the years go by.

Once Upon A Time, S4E18: “Heart of Gold”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Emma’s pretty quick to shut her parents down in favor of finding the Author, when she’s the one who lost him in the first place.
  • It’s only been nine weeks? It seems like forever.
  • Always love it when someone breaks into your place, tries to kick you out, and then collapses on your doorstep.
  • Man, I love Robert Carlyle in all his incarnations in this show.
  • Ok, if Robin doesn’t extract some sort of a deal from Gold, he’s an IDIOT.
  • Oh hi Will. Fancy meeting you here.
  • You know, we have jumped around in time so much this episode, I’m not sure I know when in the timeline this is happening anymore.
  • Why is it that the Sheriff didn’t just imprison Robin for his past misdeeds? He doesn’t seem like the sort to abide by due process of law.
  • I guess locks haven’t changed much through the years?
  • Ok, not only was that not a secret drawer, it opened pretty much like a lot of normal drawers.
  • Marian’s kind of a pragmatic.
  • Wow, that was not a good bargain.
  • Maybe “wounded” was used as more of an abstract quality instead of describing actual myocardial infarction.
  • Wow–neither Robin nor the kid could tell the difference at all? Ew.
  • Oh, Robin is an idiot.
  • Carlyle has had some killer double entendre scenes this season.
  • I’m glad the only photo contact Robin has in his phone besides Regina is Granny’s Takeout.
  • You know, I don’t actually remember how Zelena killed Neal again–wasn’t he trying to enact some ritual to bring back his Dad?
  • Maybe Robin should consider locking his phone.


Once Upon A Time, S4E10: “Fall”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • So being totally frozen doesn’t damage anyone as long as they don’t crack?
  • Who in their right mind would accept Hans as King? He’s not even from Arendelle?
  • Man, you can just feel how Robert Carlyle must love finally getting some substantial villainous screen time. He is TEH AWESOME.
  • Really Regina? Everyone and their brother has been supportive of you. Just because you only take support from Robin doesn’t mean he’s the only one offering.
  • Oh, freaking Hans.
  • Like Regina is suddenly a leadership life coach.
  • Are there no other people in Arendelle?
  • Ok if Arendelle takes Hans as king, it deserves what it gets.
  • Elsa maybe needs some Prozac.
  • Oh Anna, this might not be the best time.
  • Oh, too bad Elsa didn’t wish to uncurse everyone.
  • Wow, it had been so long, I had forgotten Charming and Kristoff were BFFs.
  • If you know the spell is going to throw stuff in your eyes, why would you look straight at it?
