A relatively light television night for me — I’ve found myself watching the non-PARKS AND REC NBC comedies On Demand and I missed TVD last night — but there are still some fun things to talk about…

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: Michael Socha Teases the Knave’s Flashback

Comments Off on ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: Michael Socha Teases the Knave’s Flashback

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND’s Knave has already proven to have burned some bridges in Wonderland (bet he’s regretting that fairy ride), but in tonight’s brand new episode, viewers will get to see how deep his history with certain characters actually goes.

“You see him as one of Robin Hood’s men,” Michael Socha (Knave) teased to reporters. “You don’t know which one [of the men he is]. I’m not going to tell you which one. Yeah, and he’s quite a soppy git: he’s quite emotional, and he loves his missus, but he’s still a thief. He’s a good thief; he steals, I think, for the right reasons…I think he’s easily manipulated.”

But let’s see if the people he steals from are as easily forgiving…

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND airs Thursdays at 8 PM on ABC.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: Naveen Andrews on Jafar’s Relationships with the Red Queen and Cyrus, Flashbacks, and More

Comments Off on ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: Naveen Andrews on Jafar’s Relationships with the Red Queen and Cyrus, Flashbacks, and More

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND kicked off last week, and the show wasted no time in letting us know that Jafar (Naveen Andrews) was holding Alice’s love, Cyrus, hostage.

So what comes next? I spoke with Andrews to see what he could share about Jafar’s plans for Cyrus, whether we’ll be getting flashbacks for him, and more…

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: What You Need to Know About the New ABC Series

Comments Off on ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: What You Need to Know About the New ABC Series

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

Next up, ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND…

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND

Picture 1 of 8

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND - "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" stars Sophie Lowe ("Beautiful Kate") as Alice, Michael Socha ("This Is England") as Knave of Hearts, Peter Gadiot ("The Forbidden Girl") as Cyrus, Emma Rigby ("Hollyoaks") as Queen of Hearts and John Lithgow ("3rd Rock from the Sun") as the voice of the White Rabbit. "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" was written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz ("Once Upon a Time"), who serve as executive producers. Steve Perlman and Zack Estrin also serve as executive producers, and the pilot was directed by Ralph Hemecker. "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" is produced by ABC Studios. (ABC/Jack Rowand)MICHAEL SOCHA, SOPHIE LOWE

*Maybe not scientifically correct. But close enough.

ABC’s description: “Alice returns home to her father telling her that everyone thought she was dead. Her imaginative stories about a talking White Rabbit and a mystical place called Wonderland end up getting her admitted into an asylum where Dr. Lydgate convinces her to have a procedure that will allow her to forget her pain. Right before the operation is set to take place she is rescued by the Knave of Hearts who takes her to the rabbit who informs her that her true love Cyrus is still alive. As the trio then jumps into the portal returning to Wonderland, Alice sets out on a quest to find him but the villainous Jafar and the Red Queen have other plans for her.”

My take: The version I saw was very unfinished in terms of effects, so I’m really looking forward to actually seeing how it looks tonight. Aside from that, this new version of the Alice tale shows potential, but it does seem — at least in the pilot — a little younger than the ONCE mothership. I’m curious to see how this plays out and how dark the show will allow itself to go.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: Sophie Lowe, Emma Rigby, and Peter Gadiot Preview the New ABC Series

October 10, 2013 by  
Filed under Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

Comments Off on ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: Sophie Lowe, Emma Rigby, and Peter Gadiot Preview the New ABC Series

Just like ONCE UPON A TIME has recontextualized what we know of many popular fairytale characters, ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND will show viewers an entirely new side to the “Alice in Wonderland” tale.

“Well she’s grown up now and she’s strong,” Sophie Lowe (Alice) teased to reporters on the show’s Vancouver set last week. “She’s learned how to fight, and she knows how to look after herself. I think when you grow up, you kind of see your family and your parents in a different light, and I feel like she’s going through that. When you’re little you only see your parents and you think of your parents as God, and then when you grow up you realize that they’re just like you and they have fears as well, and so she just kinds of starts to believe herself and stop trying to convince everyone and just kind of follow her heart. So she’s a woman now, and she can kick ass.”

Those ass-kicking skills will likely be massively needed when Alice returns to Wonderland and realizes that she has quite a few people who are invested in what she does next. Among them? The Red Queen, whom Alice holds responsible for the “death” of her true love, Cyrus, whom Alice fell for during one of her stints in Wonderland. But the Red Queen’s portrayer, Emma Rigby, cautioned that her character might not be all bad.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: Naveen Andrews on Reuniting with Former LOST Writers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis, Plus Creating a New Take on Jafar

October 9, 2013 by  
Filed under Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

ONCE UPON A TIME bosses (and former LOST writers) Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis have often relied on former LOST stars for guest spots (or in the case of Emilie de Ravin, a guest spot-turned-series regular gig), and with their new show, ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, about to make its debut, they’ve called on a familiar face to be a series regular: Naveen Andrews (Sayid on LOST/Jafar on WONDERLAND)!

“Basically, it was like a ten minute meeting,” Andrews told me of how he got involved with the ONCE spinoff. “They told me they created this character, and they said, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if we got someone like Naveen to do it?’ We had worked together on LOST, and they had written one of my favorite episodes in the fifth season where Sayid is made to take LSD with interesting results [in “He’s Our You”]. And I was available, because I think when they first wrote it, I wasn’t.”

“So I went in and they said, ‘We wanted you to do it,'” he continued. “So it was literally ten minutes. Again, I felt very familiar and safe in terms of their writing. From the things they wrote in that fifth season, I knew they were willing to be daring and dangerous. I think we have a similar approach to Jafar in that sense.”

Comments Off on ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND: LOST’s Naveen Andrews Joins the New Series

LOST’s Naveen Andrews is coming back to our televisions: the man who played Sayid has been cast in the new ABC series ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND…reuniting him with former LOST writers/OUATIW creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.

The casting news was announced during Saturday’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND panel at Comic-Con — where the pilot presentation was screened — which Andrews joined as a surprise guest.

And if the casting news wasn’t fantastic enough, he’s also playing a very, very, very intriguing character: Jafar, AKA the villain from ALADDIN.

Hmmmm…
