Episode III: The PC's Commentary Strikes Back, Will Happen Tomorrow
Your Blog didn't get on line early enough to finish his Star Wars commentary.
Because, tonight was the two hour season finale of "Once Upon a Time."
Your Blog watched it on a half hour Tivo™ delay.
And, "OUaT" had more plot twists in it's last two hours than it has had during it's entire run.
Your Blog's mind is blown.
Seriously, if you have not been following "Once Upon a Time," you need to do whatever you have to do to catch up...
Netflix, YouTube, ABC VOD, whatever it takes, to catch up with the most creative show currently on television.
You need to start with the first season. Otherwise, you will be completely confused.
You have to do it. You can thank me later.
"Once Upon a Time" is a story line that plays out as if Aaron Spelling directed Disney's classics.
Like any good soap opera, villains become heroes and good guys go bad. And back again.
I love a good deconstructionist take on classic tales.
Little Red Riding Hood is a "big bad," werewolf.
Rumpelstiltskin is as bad as one can be, but has a heart as golden as the straw he spins. He is also Captain Hook's reptilian nemesis, and Belle's "Beast."
Peter Pan is the "Don Corleone " of the fairy tale world. A nasty piece of work.
Captain Hook grows from villain to romantic hero.
Snow White's evil queen, step mother finds redemption, heroism and acceptance, only to have it pulled out from under her.
Seriously, this is a super spoiler alert...
After the citizens of Storybrooke defeated Oz's Wicked Witch of the East, a new villain rises for next season...
A Disney Princess, a pretty blonde who takes off her gloves to freeze whatever she touches...
... will be next season's villain to wreck havoc on the people of Storybrooke.
