Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 10 – TV Review

OUaT Broken Heart Hook Gold duel

Hook’s is ribbed for Emma’s pleasure.

Hoping Zelena and Arthur got up to more merry misadventures in Camelot before they were pulled into Storybrooke?

Too bad.

But at least we get to see Merlin die.

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 7 – TV Review

OUaT Nimue Emma forging Excalibur

Emma just wants to be cool.

It only took seven gruelling episodes (including the unspeakable arduousness of a Belle episode), but Excalibur is finally back in one piece.

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 6 – TV Review

OUaT The Bear and the Bow Belle

Because Snow and David weren’t inadequate enough.

Well, actually, it’s a more of a Guinevere and Lancelot episode. With deus ex machina magic.

I can’t tell. Is that better or worse than a David and Snow episode?

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 3 – TV Review

OUaT Siege Perilous Humple

The body glitter will suit her, but I don’t know if she’ll be able to pull off those teeth.

Emma may waste the entire episode doing fucking nothing to get Excalibur out of its stone, but that girl knows how to close an episode.

Well, and Regina.

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 2 – TV Review

OUaT The Price Fury Guardians of the Galaxy

I was wondering when Disney would start bringing in their Marvel properties.

I want to trust that Once Upon a Time is self-aware enough to see how much this resembles Guardians of the Galaxy. But I’m not sure.
