I don't know, Carissa. While I like what they're finally doing with the character of Laurel Lance, I continue to find Katie Cassidy grating. Maybe she's just being directed badly because I think she's capable of better given how she started off the series...but man, she chews the scenery like it's breakfast. And it's not getting better.

Gotham Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Viper

In The Killing Joke, one of the most popular (and my favourite) Batman graphic novels and probably the best origin story of the Joker, he is a failed stand-up comic...who becomes the Joker after having a really, REALLY bad day.

Gotham Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Viper

That was absolutely my favourite line! That and Bullock telling the store clerk to call 911 because they're homicide and on lunch.

Ooooh - interesting point about the heart of the truest believer!
Though wasn't the prophecy that "a boy" would be his undoing? I kinda thought the "boy" in question turned out to be Peter Pan, his dad in boy form, while Rumpel only thought it was Henry. I could be wrong though, and yours is an excellent theory.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 2 Review: Sara

I'm so glad that someone else here knows that besides me. I'm not the only nerd!! I'm still waiting for Oliver to end up in Bialya :-)

Arrow Season 3 Episode 2 Review: Sara

"rather than continue to hit her head against his abs "...LOL!! Carissa, you slay me. :-D Part of me truly understands the need for Felicity to move on, and I'm glad she did. However, another part of me is heartbroken, the part that realizes that she's the only person so far that has brought light and levity to Oliver's dark world. Oliver's started out this season by bricking himself into a lonely place, a place that's going to get even darker and worse when he finds out what Thea's been up to. He needs that light. Second episode, I'm already stressed. Gah.

I'm finally catching up...all I gotta say is, I was stressed out already in the first half hour of the season premiere. This season will probably end me.

LOL @ Chuck comment - did anyone else get an instant "flash" of the Buy More when he walked in that electronics store?

The current Juliette/Avery situation is pretty much the 15-years-ago Rayna/Deacon situation. Juliette went Rayna because she trusts her, but an even bigger reason is that she knew Rayna would understand what it's like to carry the child of a man she's in love with but can't be with. When Juliette went to see Avery to tell him in the last episode, she saw him stumbling out of a car completely wasted with some random girl. Likewise, when Rayna went to tell Deacon about Maddie, she found him in a drunken coma. I just hope the end is different. I have to disagree with you about Scarlett though. I don't think Scarlett's stage fright is weird. She had an epic nervous breakdown on a massive stage in the public eye - the fact that singing in front of a crowd still spooks her isn't weird at all. She has a perfectly legitimate reason to be afraid of the stage and of an audience. While I understand Zoey was trying to make amends and reconnect with her friend, she should have been sensitive enough to know that was a bad idea.

Great review, Christine! I'm starting to dislike Robin Hood...he's kind of selfish. It's great that Regina knows now that Robin loves her, but Robin was only thinking of himself in that moment. Not about whether Regina needed to know, or whether it would hurt her to hear it knowing he couldn't be with her. He needed to admit it so he did. Two - if you knew you didn't love Marian, for goodness sake Robin, why did you waste the time? If he had admitted it right when the kiss didn't work, instead of the whole town just thinking that the curse was too advanced (which is a possibility), they might have tried something else. Given that mother-son true love kisses have broken half the curses in Storybrooke thus far, they might have tried with their kid. Robin left Marian in danger just to save face. I can't stand Marian, and vanilla ice-cream was an apropos way to take her out. But Robin got on my last nerve this episode.
