Until today, the lack of LGBT representation among Disney characters had never occurred to me, simply because it seemed so incredibly implausible that it wasn't even worth the frustration. The pinnacle of "wholesome family values" bringing a lil' diversity into the mix? Psssh! But as it turns out, I've never been so happy to be proven wrong. This past Sunday, the Disney-ABC show "Once Upon a Time" featured a sniffle-inducing scene in which Mulan (nearly!) reveals her hidden feelings for Princess Aurora, A.K.A. "Sleeping Beauty. Read More
Sadly, I missed last week’s episode of OUAT due to Hurricane Sandy–however, I am grateful that I didn’t have any actual problems to deal with. But it gave me some time to rethink my weekly recaps, and instead of doing a long, boring recap of every scene, I’ve decided to focus on five hilarious, shocking, bewildering, or just WTF moments from each episode.  Without further delay, here’s what happened in this week's episode: Emma’s Past. The episode is called Tallahassee, and for a good reason. Read More
  Rumplestiltskin and Belle had quite an interesting beginning in Season One, as they were Beauty and the Beast. I absolutely worship Rumbelle, and was thrilled to see another episode about this power couple. Rumple is one of the most mysterious characters, and this episode finally revealed some information about him. The episode begins in Storybrooke with Belle having doubts about Rumple and concerns about if he’s really going to change or keep using magic to control others. Read More
  This week’s episode of OUAT was all about strong women kicking ass! WOOO! We start in the Enchanted Forest, where we left off at the end of Season 1. Snow, Charming, Red, and company are trying to defeat King George and his army. (As a reminder: George is Charming’s not-biological father.) The guy named Leviathan is actually Lancelot from the Round Table, but we find out he has been cast off and is now working for King George. Lancelot (so handsome!) captures Snow under George's orders. King George then poisons an unsuspecting Snow with sterility-inducing water. Read More
  HOLD THE PHONE. OMG. I’m really glad I decided to keep watching this season. Everything that I thought was lacking in the premiere seemed to be in the very intense second episode, so I'm a very happy fangirl. This episode returned to all the things I love about OUAT. The seven dwarves bring it upon themselves to find out what happens beyond Storybrooke. Read More
I have had a lengthy love affair with Once Upon A Time, so you can imagine how stoked I was to see the season premiere on Sunday night.  Sadly, I was a little let down. If you’re new to the show, here's the plot: An evil queen (the one who poisoned Snow White with the apple) trapped all of the fairy-tale characters in modern-day Storybrooke, Maine, in which they are unaware of their magical powers and who they really are in the alternate world.
