About Last Night…ONCE UPON A TIME, THE KILLING, GCB and More

April 2, 2012 by  

Oh, Sunday night TV. Don’t be jealous of Monday and Thursday nights…you’re almost as crazy as they are.

Let’s talk about what aired last night!

Now that we know why Regina/the Evil Queen hates Snow/Mary Margaret on ONCE UPON A TIME, I almost wonder if there was any way the reveal could have been as massive as I anticipated it being. Don’t get me wrong — I think it was a fantastic episode, Barbara Hershey (Cora) gave me chills, and I loved getting the backstory, but Snow was a young kid manipulated by a cruel adult and had no malicious intentions towards the woman who would become the Evil Queen. Heck, if Regina has been holding on to this grudge for 28 years in the fairytale land, what the heck did she do to her mother?!

Did BOB’S BURGERS remind anyone else of the FRIENDS episode where Chandler spent all day playing Ms. Pac-Man and then got a messed up hand/filled the leader board with dirty words? Surely I can’t be the only one who couldn’t stop giggling…

We’ve all wanted to do what we could when our favorite show gets cancelled, so FAMILY GUY‘s Peter putting it on himself was awesome. I actually laughed out loud at the episode, too, which doesn’t always happen.

I really don’t know what to think about THE KILLING. My frustration with last season wasn’t as extreme as most people I’ve heard from, but the premiere didn’t blow me away. Quite frankly, I was bored. I’m glad Holder isn’t a clear-cut bad guy who was trying to frame Richmond, because it didn’t feel like they had given us enough to have that twist make logical sense. And while it would have been easier if the killer was Richmond, I’m glad he survived the assassination attempt and Linden was able to prove he was innocent. I just need the show to better hold my attention next week.

Um, I adored GCB last night. It’s been fun before, but something seemed to majorly click last night. Eric Winter was a fun addition as Carlene’s brother, and I love how he just made Amanda shine. I’m disappointed Heather’s relationship seems to be over, but her (now former) boyfriend was right — she seemed more interested in sticking Sheryl Crow (!) to Carlene and Cricket versus caring how her boyfriend felt about having a literal spotlight on him. My favorite moment of the hour was probably when Amanda and Gigi were on the stairs and shared an embrace over having things go right in both of their lives. I’m guessing the harmony can’t stick forever, but I’m so enjoying the two getting along.

I’m now two weeks behind on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, but if I heard the promo right, it’s off the air until the end of the month…I’ll definitely catch up by then.

What stood out to you last night? Guessing a few of you watched MAD MEN and GAME OF THRONES, in addition to all the fabulous shows I mentioned above, so let’s hear about it!

    I actually saw a really interesting theory that Snow was NOT as innocent as she initially appeared. There were definite subtle hints on the actress’ face (who by the way, was the spitting image of Adult Snow) that she knew exactly what would happen if she told Cora, in that Regina couldn’t be Daniel. Perhaps not necessarily to the extent he would be killed. The theory also pointed out the Regina knew her mother was ultimately responsible for killing Daniel and setting things in motion, but that she also knew Cora was far too powerful at that point for Regina to really do anything about it. So she projected all her anger on Snow.

    It was definitely an interesting thought. I really hope they are able to fill that backstory in more. How did Regina get her magic? What happened to Cora?

    Also excited to see more of August and who he really is…and what happened to Kathryn!

    @Smidget: Yes, you’re right — Little Snow had an uncanny resemblance to Ginnifer Goodwin, right?

    Fascinating theory about Cora/Regina/Snow. Would love that to be true, because it would make the feud even more impactful, IMO.

    But yes, cannot wait to see more!

    GCB! It makes me laugh each week. I am LOVING Annie Potts and this week was no exception. I think Heather is my favorite character, so I was also sad that her relationship with Andrew is on the rocks. I hope that doesn’t end forever.

    Adult Snow has talked about the Queen’s hatred of her before and I got a sense that she even felt that it was justified, well not justified exactly but Snow sounded like she knew why Regina hated her and something in her voice makes me think that there is still more to the story than the glimpse we got in this episode.
