I’m so glad Archie was in the new episode of OUaT.
I need more Archie, man! Come on, he’s such a sweetheart and a badass. Like do you remember...
I am getting more and more excited for Emerald City Comicon!! Can’t wait to meet j august richards, see jacqui and meet eliza dushku!!
It’s been way too long since your last OUAT rant. <3
I’m trying to be good. But, what the hell. Let’s do this:
I mean, REALLY: If someone were to write a book about this fandom and portray me as someone who ranted at least 8 times a season about the show, yet (for some reason) kept watching, I’d own it because, hey, that’s who I am.
So if, say, I was a queen who plotted to kill her husband and then coerced some schmuck into doing it, then continued to kill a bunch of common folk while on a vendetta against my stepdaughter, ripped a bunch of hearts out and kept taking advantage of my (admittedly, super-hot) underling, and someone wanted to paint me with the brush of “villain”? I’d own it and stop whining about it.
AT LEAST they’re actually making her try to steer into the curve of goodness by not killing Marian. And how messed up is it that I have to laud them for making one of the leads NOT kill someone?
In the meantime:
* I grow weary of the stick that’s perpetually up Grumpy’s ass. Yes, yes, he’s living up to his name. But can we give him something else to do other than getting everyone else worked up about something?
* So, hey, a blonde woman falls out of an urn with the same powers as Elsa? Elsa, whose other immediate family members look just like her sister and have no powers? GOSH, I WONDER HOW THEY COULD BE RELATED. I just haven’t the foggiest, so I do hope they’ll spend at least another nine episodes showing me vague flashbacks to Arrendale that don’t tell me a damn thing until episode 13.
If this show really wanted to surprise me, it would just use one episode rather than four to get to the damned point, and throw a bone in the remaining episodes to one or two of the other 20 cast members who just get to run around town, all worked up over something that Grumpy was feeling bitchy about.
Regina wants to track down the person who wrote the book, because she was written as a villain? Really? Maybe someone who gleefully killed her way through anyone who stood up for Snow was written like a villain because that’s what they were? Maybe?
This show’s annual attempts to whitewash Regina and turn the world upside down to connect Rumpelstiltskin to everyone who ever said the word “magic,” rather than give the other characters something to do beyond just getting all worked up and chasing after their own tails (I almost typed “tales,” and hey, that works, too), will never cease to astound me.
And yes, I meant for that sentence to be just as long and ridiculous as OUAT’s storylines.
They can bring the entire cast of Frozen in the show, but can’t bother to take care of the characters that are already there.
That’s ouat for you.
Shiny New Toy Syndrome.
Hey, that’s what I call it, too!
I JUST saw “Frozen.” There was absolutely nothing about the ending that made me go, “You know what I need? Some dramatic tension to screw up this happy ending.”
And yet, here we are.
