Riverdale Season 4 Episode 8 – TV Review

We all know Alice would be unbeatable in the reading challenge.

There is hope yet for anyone who wants more out of Riverdale, as this episode mostly succeeds at the gargantuan task of trying to ground the drama across every subplot.

Sure, the episode winds down by still dipping its toe into this Stonewall Prep, every-Hardy-Boys-author-gets-murdered stupidity. But hey, at least the demonic doll is put to bed on the Cheryl front.

As for Betty? Not a lot on. So the Betty-only Report is gon’ be quick.

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 21 – TV Review

OUaT Homecoming Cruella

Does being a Wish Realm copy count as being back, though?

I thought that this was going to be a trademark OUaT double episode finale, so let me just start by saying how grateful I am that it wasn’t.

Nobody deserves to sit through two hours of OUaT.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 18 – TV Review

OUaT Where Bluebirds Fly Zelena angry face

At least it isn’t a Belle episode. Or a David episode. Right?

Yes, it’s a Zelena episode.

And a “magic does what we say it does” episode.

And a confirmation that the Black Fairy will have some tragic backstory episode.

And a wedding planning for Hook and Emma episode.

But still no Maleficent or Lily. Hmm.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 16 – TV Review

OUaT Mother's Little Helper Black Fairy

We can’t all be fabulous drag queens.

I know this post is late this week. But I prioritised eating myself into a chocolate coma over OUaT.

Which I will argue was the better and healthier choice.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 14 – TV Review

OUaT Page 23 Queenie

I’ve already lived through an OUaT without Queenie, and I didn’t like it.

Just one episode after restoring my faith that Once Upon a Time could be fun again, and Queenie is out of here.

Apparently, for good.

I feel personally attacked.

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 15 – TV Review

OUaT The Brothers Jones David Cruella

And David is no substitute for a real man, but again, we’re desperate, here.

The good news is that Cruella’s still around.

The bad news is that Once Upon a Time is doubling down on last episode’s pointless, minor character sob/backstory schtick by bringing back Hook’s brother. Who is even less valuable to events than Gold’s slutty wife.

All the dead characters in the world to choose from, and we get Bernard Curry. Good grief.

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 13 – TV Review

OUaT Labor of Love Cruella

But read “bark” as in, like, an over-exaggerated “back” in a fancy British accent.
Also, dog pun.

With Cora out of the way, I was worried we’d have to suffer a Fabulous Bitch Goddess vacuum.

Regina is way too friendly these days. And as camptacular as Queenie is in the flashbacks, she can’t affect anything important happening now.

So thank God OUaT threw us a bone with Cruella. After her “in car form only” snubbing last week, I didn’t expect it.
