It’s been a while since I actually write something here. Oh you know, most shows have their season finales already, Game of Thrones is on a one-week hiatus, and all that jazz. But Teen Wolf is coming back so yay!
However, I’ve been doing my own catching up on some shows that I love to watch because I’ve been spending too much energy on Glee, Game of Thrones and Spartacus. And the first show that I caught up on is Season 2 of Once Upon A Time.
So, you know, the show started with the whole magic coming back into Storybrooke and our beloved fairy tale characters knowing that they are actually fairy tale characters. When Season 1 ended, I asked myself how they are going to work it all out.
In general, I guess it was okay with the introduction of new characters like Mulan, Aurora, Prince Philip and Captain Hook. I think they should cast Li Shang or have Mulan be an independent, I-need-no-man heroine instead of crushing on Prince Philip who is obviously in love with Aurora.
The acting was a little awkward here and there and the story could get really slow, which could make the audience frustrated. And the whole Tamara and the other guy irritates me a little. They reminded me of Westboro Baptist Church.
I think the novelty of the whole twist in the fairy tale stories has gone, which might have caused the drop in the viewership for the show. With the season ending in the “evil” characters like Regina and Rumpelstiltskin along with the “good guys” going into Neverland and the twist of Henry being the boy wanted by The Shadow, I don’t know what else they could do to keep the viewers watching. The finale was a little substandard. I wasn’t going: “Oh boy, I can’t wait for the next season now!” I was more like: “Please don’t make Peter Pan the bad guy because my childhood!”
But if you’re a fan, you should know by now that the show has been renewed for the third season. So, will I actually review the episodes each week when the season starts? We’ll see how I can juggle.
