"Home" Review: Hitting the Bottle
There's something wrong in the world when a rabbit has a nicer flat than you do.

Since staff is no longer with us...

This week's mid-season finale arrived and in fairness, I'll have to admit a) I didn't see it coming, and b) I'm not seeing where they're going. So two points for the surprise element.

But let's save the spoilers for a little later. This episode reset several things. The Queen and Jafar are no longer reluctant allies. Alice found Cyrus. All three wishes have been used. The Red Queen has changed sides. The Rabbit is no longer suspected of being a traitor.

My main problem (others may vary) is that I still don't care about any of these people. They're all perfectly adequate archetypes, But I still don't have a lot of involvement with them. Alice is the ...Read more

Why OUaT: Wonderland Isn't So Wonderful...
When I first heard about Wonderland, I figured that the wonder was short for "wonderful," not "wonder how we're gonna make it?"

As I noted in this week's review column, part of the reason OUaT:W doesn't feel that interesting is because of how they made it: it seems to be rehashed OUaT. After an episode or two where the creators seemed to let their imaginations run wild, in sync with Lewis Carroll beloved novels, they seem to have reverted to OUaT generic fantasy. Instead of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, we get the recycled ballroom from the episode "Ariel." Instead of the Marsh Mallow Swamp, we get a cave filled with skeletons. Instead of a menagerie of Carroll creations at the Knave's execution, we get extras wearing Mardi Gras masks.

Now, some of this is certainly a result of weekly TV budgeting and the ...Read more

"Bad Blood" - 12/5/13 Review
Hmm, we Wondies seem to have disappeared off the map this week. We're not listed as "What to Watch Tonight" on the front page, and Lily didn't create a review placeholder.

So anyhoo, here's a review. If Lily is still doing it, then we'll have two reviews. Que sera.

I found this week's episode... generally entertaining. It kept my interest, but my main problem is that I'm just not that interested in Jafar's backstory. Like Darth Vader, Jafar is more interesting as a villain then as a little kid. Yes, Jafar was kinda/sorta driven to be evil by a jerk of a birth father. (Who is still kind of a jerk.) But unless Jafar does a heel-turn and turns into a victorious anti-hero, showing his past seems to be just flashback filler to pad out a 20 minute story.

The flashback scenes ...Read more

Our story begins as many tales of imagination begin . . . . "Once Upon a Time" . . . . only this time it is, "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland". Yes, Wonderland a land filled with marvelous and fantastic places and characters, teeming with adventure and mystery, a land where a beautiful young girl once went . . . . but no one would believe her tale. In fact they tried to say she was a bit insane, troubled, lost in her imagination.

The time was Victorian England and the young and beautiful Alice (played by Sophie Lowe) was about to have her memories forcibly removed by her doctors. That strange land that existed of all places . . . . on the other side of the rabbit hole. A strange place, a place with an invisible cat, a White Rabbit (played by John Lithgow), talking playing cards, a hookah smoking caterpillar, and of course we cannot forget to mention the Red Queen (played by the very lovely Emma Rigby).

Alice knows however that her doctors are about to make her forget all about Wonderland. Alice is especially ready to forget the painful memories of Cyrus the genie (played by Peter Gadiot) who she gave her heart to and yet lost forever when she returned to the "real" world. Perhaps Alice is insane as her doctors would have her believe, perhaps Alice did imagine it all, yet down deep in her heart she knows it was real; but who will save poor Alice from losing all the memories she holds deep in her mind and in her heart?

The White Rabbit along with the Knave of Hearts (played by Michael Socha) arrive just in time to prevent Alice from losing her memories. Now it is time for Alice and her friends to return to Wonderland, so down the three of them tumble, yes down the rabbit hole they go and Alice can continue her marvelous tale of "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland".
