I know, I know, late to the party. I was bad this week about watching things on time.
I started watching OUaT for the cute factor and the fact that Prince 'Charming' is played by the same actor who played Fandral in Thor. Only without the facial hair which makes him look like a completely different, and much more handsome, person.
However. I'm really loving this show. It's got a little of the cutesy factor going on, yes. But it's not the entirety of the show. It's all about the truth behind the fairy tales which is a thing that I really, really love.
And the Evil Queen and Rumplestiltskin...
I can't wait to find out what it is that Snow White did to her to ruin her life. What the love was that Snow White took away. I mean I know the Disney version and I know the fairy tale version but I'm interested in what the OUaT version is going to be.
I think it's fairly obvious that *everyone* got played by Rumplestiltskin. Yes? Watching the threads of his manipulation unfold is one of the highlights of the show for me. I think it's also clear that it's not only the Queen who remembers about their previous lives but Mr. Gold does as well. After all, how are you going to enjoy the fruits of all your efforts if you don't remember all the effort you put into getting what you want?
American Horror Story - I have no words. None. Sanil posted something about the theory that Violet was dead, and once I thought about it that made sense. So I suspected, going in that Violet was dead. But actually seeing it was incredible.
I still remember being unsure about this show when it first came on, wondering if it was going to be any good or worth my time. It is. It so, so is.
I love Tate, which I know I really shouldn't because he's clearly a *bad* person. But I don't care. I love him anyway and I can't think of anything he could do that I wouldn't forgive him for.
And creepy as it may be, I'm glad that he and Violet get to be together forever now!
