Once Upon a Time Season 4 Report Card: Grade It!

Best Episode: 4x08 - Smash The Mirror and 4x21/22 - Operation Mongoose pt 1&2
Worst Episode: 4x02 - 4x06 The Frozen arc didn't do it for me. They needed to find more of a balance between the frozen stuff and the show's central characters and they didn't.
Best Villain: Cruella. She was fantastic, I kinda wish we had gotten more of her.
Most Disappointing Recurring Character: I'll say Robin. However, I think that's a lot less to do with his character (whom I love) and more to do with the writing and usage of his character this season. He's a great addition to the show and like Will his character has so much potential, but the writers need to take time to develop him and his storylines.
Most Disappointing New Character: Will. Again, I love Will, but they clearly forgot he existed most of the season. I also hate that he's been there a whole year and they still haven't bothered answering why he's in SB and what happened to Ana.
Most Shocking Twist: Zelena's pregnancy. Didn't see it coming.
Worst Twist: Zelena's pregnancy. Didn't see it coming and wish it hadn't.
Best New Trend: Regina and Henry's relationship becoming extremely more relaxed and him moving back home. Regina & Emma working together.
Best Kiss: Easily Robin and Regina. They have amazing chemistry.
Best Advice: Snow to Regina in 4x08 (pt1&2) - The speech Snow gave Regina while they were looking for Emma.
Regina to Zelena - 4x20 - The standing in your own way/being your own worst enemy speech.
Hook to Emma - 4x20 - Hook talking Emma into forgiving her parents
Regina to Emma - 4x19 - Regina talking Emma down from shooting Lily
Hopes for Once Upon a Time Season 5: More Robin Hood & OutlawQueen development
Some type of resolve to the pregnancy storyline
Emma as the dark one being resolved in 5A
A storyline for Will, if they have to venture off to save Emma bring Will along and let him get into the action too or something.
No more new character introductions, but more interaction with existing characters that don't interact much Charming/Regina, Hook/Robin, Snow/Robin, Regina/Hook etc.
More Robin/Henry & Regina/Roland interactions.
Great storyline.
Final grade for Once Upon a Time Season 4: 4A: C, 4B: B+

"No more new character introductions, but more interaction with existing characters that don't interact much Charming/Regina, Hook/Robin, Snow/Robin, Regina/Hook etc. More Robin/Henry & Regina/Roland interactions." Completely agree :) Everyone has fallen into a clique, yet the reason I enjoyed the show so much in the early seasons was that you got to see Red Riding Hood and Snow White as best friends, Captain Hook working for the Queens of Hearts--it was those unique character interactions that were so intriguing. In the pairings you mentioned, I especially enjoy anytime Charming is forced to interact with Regina (From Smash the Mirror-- Regina to Snow: "Do you know what I regret most?" Charming: "The countless innocent lives you destroyed?" Regina: Rolls Eyes). I also like when Hook and Regina snark back and forth--since season 2, I have always enjoyed their interactions. Hopefully, the scene in Sympathy of the De Vil where Regina and Hook are trying to talk some sense into Emma is just a sampling of things to come. Also, Belle needs to interact with somebody (somebodies) from the main cast or she will continue to be completely irrelevant. The scene with Belle and Hook in Darkness on the Edge of Town--I think many thought that friendship would be explored further, but it really wasn't. They could have at least shown more fall out from the "Rumple as Hook deception" which only got a minute max. in Poor Unfortunate Soul.

I was shocked and sad that Dean killled Death. I truly hope that he is not dead because I adore him! I also hope that Crowley is not dead either. Ugh on Rowena being super powerful now, I was so hoping that she would be the one to die. The Darkness could be good, but I reckon time will tell. Jensen and Jared did an amazing job in last night's season finale.

Great job on the review, I really enjoyed it. You were right on, on so many levels. It is such a shame what they did to Mary's character this season, and the ratings show it. The Conde thing should have ended wayyyyy before it did with some true, heartfelt repentance from Mary. Then maybe it would have seemed believable. As it was, it was too little too late and sooo rushed. Even so, I loved what little they did give us. It was so good to see the old Mary back even if it is short lived. And I got all choked up during that love scene because Francis deserves all the love she has to give him. She had better do some BIG TIME making it all up to him in season 3. I still don't understand how she could look at the pain in Francis' eyes and then go and sleep with Conde. It just goes way beyond my understanding. She HAS become the "black widow" now, just like you said, and all of us who adored Frary are left with a bitter taste in our mouths. I agree that the old Mary is gone forever, there's just been too much damage done with her selfish, irrational behavior.

Game of Thrones Round Table: Sansa's Unfortunate Wedding Night

I have never really been shocked at fictional television, but I obviously knew there was a problem when, as the ending credits rolled for Game of Thrones, I was completely horrified!!! I can't explain why after watching the show for 5 seasons, I was not as forgiving to this scene - which didn't even take place on camera and still offended me - as I was to many other disturbing scenes. People are wondering how we can all of a sudden be so defensive for Sansa but not for any other person raped or tortured, but they actually bring up a great point: this entire show has been FILTH since the beginning! The entire show is trash! They say the book is worse; I definitely would've put down the book at that point or even sooner. I do notice that TV is getting worse and worse, and this topped it all off. I think I was already disgusted because I tried to watch the 1st episode of American Horror Story, season 3, and I turned it off after 7 minutes. Even if that hadn't happened, I would still feel the same about GoT today. Although she made some costly mistakes, I thought Sansa was the purest in the show (besides young children), and they just took it away. The rape scene was pointless. I can't see why it would happen to the daughter of the main family in the show. I didn't see the point at all other than the director to act out sick fantasies on TV and present them to us. I mean I was sickened to even have to imagine what was happening to her, and that weenie just stood there and watched instead of giving him the good violence we've seen throughout the entire series. Point being I'm done with the show, already deleted my DVR, there's no way this show can entertain me any longer.

Lovely one
Supernatural Season 10 Episode 23 Review: Brother's Keeper

I think I enjoyed last weeks episode better than the finale. It had more intensity. The finale seemed a little slow at first and felt like a regular episode until it got towards the end. How is it possible for a human to kill Death? He cant be really dead, that just seemed too easy. It's a good thing that the Stein brothers didn't burn those photos, because they were what brought Dean back to his senses. Kinda like the little green army men in the Impala did for Sam/Lucifer when he was beating up Dean in Swan Song. I liked that they incorporated the girl singing Carry On My Wayward Son with the original version. Pretty cool. Wasn't expecting that. Ready for next season with hopefully some good changes and scarier stories to tell. Love Jensen, Jared, Misha, and Mark. They were all great as always...

I loved the finale and the season as a whole. As to what happened to Death, even if he is gone, it won't prevent people from dying, or is everyone forgetting that he was trapped and locked away until Lucifer raised him in season, people still died when he was locked away. The reapers didn't need to answer to him to reap people. Just like the other horsemen are not needed for people to start wars, get ill or suffer famine. Not really worried about Death. Besides I think that wasn't really Death at that moment. I think the writers did a great job this and I had no problem following any of the story lines this season. Looking forward to season 11.

WHY no TV Fanatic review for last week's episode, Parents' Nightmare, and for last night's show? You review every other cheesy show on the networks, so why not Law and Order SVU? What are they, chopped liver?!

Teen Wolf Season 5 Trailer

This season looks amazing and to be completely honest a little scary. Whenever someone in a weird gas mask type thing shows up things become freaky
