Once Upon a Time

October 22, 2012

Last night's episode of Once Upon a Time was another example of why I love this show!! Excellent story, excellent writing, excellent characters...

Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin is an awesome character - one of those bad guys that you tend to pull for once in awhile... and I love how he is the Beast from the Beauty and the Beast AND now with the addition of Captain Hook, Rumplestiltskin is the (tick-tock) crocodile! What a great spin on our beloved stories!!

And as much as I love the addition of characters I fear for less time for regulars: Snow White, Charming, Emma and Henry. This is the central (royal) family and I miss them when we don't see them as much. In regards to Snow & Emma - Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison play the mother-daughter relationship really interesting; I love seeing them stranded together and relying on each other as they learn more about each other. It will be interesting to see how Captain Hook adds to the dynamic - Colin O'Donoghue is now a series regular, and making his way to Storybrooke!

I'm expecting a really exciting season, and look forward to each Sunday night! Sunday night is a powerhouse night and the fact that this show is gaining viewers speaks to how amazing this show is!! Entertainment Weekly just did a full cover story on it - click here - or pick up a copy at the store! It has a lot of information and will get you ready for next Sunday night!

Comedy Favorites: Friends & New Girl

I like comedies, they make me laugh!

But seriously, it's hard to like comedies - they either play it safe with typical and cliche jokes, or they try to push the envelope and can make things awkward!

My favorite comedy show of all time is FRIENDS - I grew up with that show. I remember my favorite lines and moments even without all the reruns! I have a few other comedies on my favorites list: The Cosby Show & Family Ties (but those are there for mainly nostalgia reasons); currently they include Modern Family & Happy Endings

But the one I really want to rave about is NEW GIRL!! I seriously laughed OUT LOUD at least five times during last night's show; not bad for a program running 23 minutes! Here are some of my favorite moments from last night:
"We'll be there with bells on! Dolla-dolla bells y'all"- Schmidt
Prank Sinatra
Jewish Peter Pan
"That's how she casseroles"
All those 80's sitcom impersonations!
Nick's pranks making Schmidt turn into an old man!

If you are not watching this show I highly recommend it! And if you are a fan of FRIENDS as well, TVGuide wrote this article that may get you on board!
