I save shows for later all the time. When the next big break happens I will start watching the last season of Fringe.

Heh, speaking of "saving shows", I didn't even know about Fringe until about S3, and kept hearing it was on the bubble for cancellation, so, I didn't bother catching up and watching it live, I figured I'd wait until it was all done (And hopefully made it to a conclusion). So, it's still a Series I need to catch some day.

I was nothing live, and only few on recordings/On Demand. Arrow, I caught the first couple episodes, and was interested, but, recorded the whole Season before watching it. I prefer to marathon things in whole seasons, unless it's one of the few shows, I just gotta watch as soon as the episodes are available (Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Falling Skies, Once upon a Time, and Legend of Korra, I think are the only shows I follow week to week when they are on. Arrow, as much as I enjoyed S1 will probably be recorded and wait until S2 is over before I watch it)

Hadn't watched this show in a while, so it might not be recent, but Robert Carlisle looks pretty cool in that black coat.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Really good episode tonight. Though didn't like the flashbacks as to me they didn't really do much but be filler.
Kind of hope Pan was right and that Henry will want to just stay there and never go back.

Though wonder how much longer this show can go on though? After they deal with Peter Pan then whats next?

Camelot. It's mentioned here and last season we met Lancelot. We've seen Dr. Frankenstein so how about Dracula, The Mummy and the Wolfman? Narnia?

I expect we will see OUAT's version of Oz eventually.

John Carter, The Lone Ranger and Tron.

Seriously though, it would be fun to see them crossover into more Disney/Public Domain worlds. I wonder how crazy they could get, like could you have Tarzan in the dark jungle or whatever?

It's a good thing they have such a killer premise because it's so "soap opera" in presentation, or maybe Lifetime/Hallmark. I guess I've been watching too many gritty programs.

Anyone notice in the Rumpy/Belle scene on the cliff he wasn't casting any shadows? It just looked odd since everything else was.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

I've only seen the premiere of this season so far, but... man, this show is so bad.

I feel like I am only watching it just so I can enjoy how bad it is. The effects are incredibly dodgy in a lot of places, although that doesn't bother me too much--it's an effects-heavy show and they have to make it on a budget somehow. But the hardest thing to swallow was everyone on the ship taking so long to figure out that their emotions were causing the storm. They were all acting ridiculously to begin with, and it's not clear if the mermaid was somehow exacerbating their negativity or what. And then you had the gigantic wave looming over them, which should have been enough to flood/capsize the ship, except in the next shot they just get some water poured on them and when we come back things are more or less fine. That whole scene probably should have been cut, it was just so poorly conceived and executed.

I'm curious to see how much of a badass Pan turns out to be. He must have some advantages that Rumple fears. And speaking of Rumple, he is pretty much the only reason I continue to watch this. Robert Carlyle is always 100% watchable.

That's because earlier in the show he cut his shadow loose, and sent it to hide his dagger.

I'm betting the end of the season they'll return to Storybrooke and find that it's disappeared or all the fairytale people have gone and it's populated with Earth people, or something like that.

I thought this week's episode was okay. It was a bit strange being back in old fairytale world, and mostly it was filler and predictable, but I do love seeing Regina in full evil queen mode.

Hook's little barbs are awesome. I liked Emma coming to terms with her being an orphan, really enjoyed that scene, and I like the bit afterward with Pan telling her that Henry hasn't forgiven her for abandoning him. I got a kick out of the mention of Rufio as well.

When the little doll fell from the sky I thought it was going to be Tinkerbell. I didn't like the Rumple bits too much, felt quite repetitive and it doesn't seem like he's actually doing anything on the island. I did like him cutting off his shadow though.

Another thing I didn't like was David being hit by the arrow and then not telling anyone. That's worthy of a

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

OUaT's writers continue to show just how brilliant they are and what the format of the show allows them to do with regards to telling the stories they want to tell.

Hook described it best when he called Pan a bloody demon, as did Regina when she referenced the term 'smugness'. This kid thinks he's got all the answers and has everybody doing what he wants them to do, but that's exactly why he's going to fail.

Rumple was absolutely brilliant in this episode, and I have to say that I was totally right about the doll having something to do with him and his father. The conceit of his psyche manifesting itself in the form of a vision from Belle might be an old one that we've seen countless times in other places, but it worked perfectly nonetheless.

I also got a kick out of the doll returning after Rumple threw it away and then burned it.

This comment indicates that you missed the broader underlying thematic story of the episode, and what its title actually refers to. What the PTBs and writers have done since the start of Season 2 and that they very much did in this episode was to take two thematically linked story ideas - one from the present and one from the past - and play them out alongside each other. The title "Lost Girl" isn't just a reference to Emma's lingering abandonment issues, but also a reference to Snow 's lack of confidence in herself. In a sense, Snow was 'lost' until Charming got her to embrace her inner strength through his ruse with 'Excalibur', just as Emma needed to face down and admit just how deeply she was affected by Snow and Charming's attempt to keep her safe and give her her 'best chance'. There's a parallel between the two women - mother and daughter - and, although Snow passed her test and found herself, Emma's just starting that journey and will probably end up in a similar situation in the end.

Charming keeping the fact that he's hurt and now has the Darkshade poison in his bloodstream a secret isn't going to end well, but Pan's assertion that Emma's going to end up an orphan for real is a bit too premature.

Some other stuff that made the episode great:
* Emma and Hook's 'meta' conversation about Peter Pan, what Hook is like in the traditional Peter Pan stories, and Hook's love of rum
* Hook's direct shout-out/reference to the movie HOOK and the character of Rufio
