Neverending Land of Neverland

There is a light at the end of the tunnel for the gang to finally leave Neverland AND NEXT WEEK WE FINALLY GO BACK TO STORYBROOKE. I might be a little too excited for this, but we haven’t really seen our friends back home since season 2. Team 7 will be back along with Belle and the rest of the folks back home. We’ll get to see how they’re handling their fearless leaders’ absence. I’m curious to see how life is going. Are they accepting life in Storybrooke or are they attempting to find a way home themselves? Are they bitter towards the gang for abandoning them or do they understand? So many possibilities.

I really enjoyed the majority of last week’s episode. Hook’s confession was perfection as well as Emma’s. I love how we able to see Hook’s true character and really understand how he became the person he is today. I don’t really know how I feel about Hook and Emma together. I can’t ever picture it lasting, but I also can’t picture Hook with anyone else (except myself… just kidding… sort of).

Regina and Rumple’s partnership is going to be good. These two are my favorite characters. Lana Parrilla and Robert Carlyle portrays these characters so well. It is absolutely unbelievable. I can’t even begin to explain how fabulous I think they are. They are complete bad asses with that hint of sass that makes them perfect.

Someone suggested to me recently of a Regina/Rumple power couple. That’s too complicated for me. Imagine how that changes Henry’s family tree and if Hook/Emma get together. This show is like a mini soap opera in the family tree department. I also prefer Rumple with Belle, so yeah.

Once Upon a Time can be pretty corny at times, but that’s part of the reason I enjoy the show if that makes any sense at all. The ‘corniness’ of the flashback scenes play to its fairytale nature. I really can’t help but laugh at some of the Snow/Charming scenes// I mean, some of them are so over exaggerated. Snow White is sort of getting on my nerves as well. I can’t quite take her serious anymore and her deep dark secret seemed to nice. It was just kind of lame and I was expecting a lot more. She’s just too nice and perfect all the time, it’s getting kind of corny. Then again, that does make sense for her character so I’m sort of neutral.

So that’s my thoughts so far after watching last week’s episode of Once Upon a Time. I’ll be back again next week and we’ll see how all of this pans out.


What I’d Like to See on Once Upon a Time

As you can probably tell, I’m a big Once Upon a Time fan. I just really enjoy the characters. I think all the actors portray their parts perfectly especially Robert Carlyle and Lana Parrilla. I’m also a big fan of Gabe Khouth since he’s the coolest. I also really enjoy the writing. I love how all the drama is intertwined with sarcastic remarks and other comedic bits. There are however, a few things I would love to see in Once Upon a Time. It’s not much, but I would love to see it.

Not only am I a OUAT fan, I’m also a huge Disney fan. I love all the movies, but more so I love all the songs. I would absolutely love to see more Disney songs have their own cameos in OUAT. There have been a few so far, like the Seven Dwarfs humming Heigh Ho and Snow White humming With a Smile and a Song. I would love to see more music incorporated in this way. I love looking for the small details in shows and it makes watching episodes over more fun. MORE MUSIC PLEASE.

I would also like to see more Disney characters introduced in the show. I would love to see Aladdin, Rapunzel, Tinkerbell, Tarzan/Jane, Mowgli, and some Lion King reference. What would be absolutely amazing if they could somehow get one of the voice actors of one to the characters to play one of the characters on the show. Let’s get James Woods to play Hades, please. He already stared in Once Upon a Time in America. Close Enough. We could also try to get Scott Weigner to play Aladdin. If he looks familiar, you might know him as Steve from Full House. I can’t wait to see what characters we’ll meet next season and think it would be hilarious if one of the voice actors played their own character. 
Like I said, I love the small details, I hope they make more allusions to other shows/Disney things. I love all the hidden Lost references and Disney ones. I think it would be cool if they reference the character’s personal lives as well. They have done this in NCIS before and I will write a post about this in the next few days. It’s really funny when you can pick out the references out of the dialogue. It makes you feel proud of yourself. Props to the writers for being awesome.

Well, that’s it for now. Please leave some comments. What songs/characters would you like to see next season? Anything please. Thanks!

Once Upon a Time: Season 3 Questions…

I haven’t had much luck on twitter today, so I decided to use today’s post to talk about my questions for season 3 of Once Upon a Time. I am so excited for the new season. This show keeps getting better and better!

Question 1: Who did Cora actually kill instead of Archie? For the latter part of this season I have ben anxiously waiting to figure out who Cora actually killed, yet I don’t believe we ever found out. It’s not really important, but it had to be someone. I wonder if we’ll ever find out.

Question 2: When the gang heads through the portal on their quest to Neverland will they look the same or will they revert back to how they look in Storybrooke? Will Rumpelstiltskin look like a human or a monster. Will Regina and Snow have long hair or short hair? I’m personally hoping they look the same, but still have the flashbacks like previous seasons. Actually, now that I think about it. Snow looked the same when she and Emma went through the portal. I guess it’s Rumpelstiltskin who I’m most intrigued about then. I don’t know. Now, this seems like a dumb question but I wrote a lot so I’ll leave it.

Question 3: What will happen in Storybrooke now that all the main characters are gone. How will they react to them leaving them all there? Why didn’t they take everyone? Wasn’t that the initial plan? I didn’t really get that part. Also, how will they eventually gt back to Storybrooke? Rumbelle can’t be separated forever. A lot of people will be very sad.

Question 4: Is Captain Hook ever going to get a love interest? I mean Regina is single and Emma thinks her boyfriend is dead. That would add a nice little storyline when the find Neal alive… Hint. Hint. Hook is beautiful. All the women must be swooning over him. I know I am.

Question 5: How much are Aurora, Mulan, and Philip going to be on this season. Now, that Neal is with them, I’m guessing we’re going to learn about them. They’ll probably go on their own soul searching advernture… literally to find Philip’s soul. I’m hoping they’re focused on more. I really like those characters, especially Mulan and Philip.

That’s all I can think of now. I know I have a lot more and will probably think of one right after I post this. If you have any other questions or theories, feel free to post them. Answer any one of my questions too please!
