Okay, holidays and end-of-the-year festivities can be exhausting and/or distracting to anyone. And given the note that 2016 ended on, I hope our dear readers understand and will forgive that I fell behind on the weekly TV recaps.
But! Better late than never, eh? Here’s a massive recap post to catch you up on Once Upon a Time and Agents of SHIELD as we continue into 2017. Keep an eye out for my separate post about season three of The Librarians.
Welcome back, TV lovers! These weeks on TV…Agents of SHIELD gave us the origins of Robbie Reyes as Ghost Rider, before leaving us with a cliff-hanger for the next several weeks. Meanwhile, Once Upon a Time‘s upping the family drama. The Evil Queen tries to drive a pirate-shaped wedge between the Charmings in “Dark Waters”, while “Heartless” features her aligning with Gold to get some overdue vengeance on Snow White.
Welcome back, TV lovers! This week, Emma’s forced to come clean about her vision while searching for Aladdin on Once Upon a Time. On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Jemma prepares for her next lie-detection test, while the rest of the team tries to intercept a ghostly abduction at a prison. Continue reading This Week on TV: Oct 22-28→
This week on TV…Once Upon a Time wrapped up its fifth season with a two-part finale that was both cheesy and convoluted. The Flash did everything it could to tear down Barry’s newfound optimism. Arrow saw new developments in Damien Darhk’s Genesis plan…for the worse. Read on for more of our thoughts, and a link to a full post about the OUaT finale!
After the Underworld arc wrapped up last week, it was a little unclear where Once Upon a Time was going to take its last two episodes. We got a lot of callbacks to seasons One and Two, but mostly everything is a set-up for season Six. It really shouldn’t have been a surprise to anyone paying attention over the past five years, but hey, sometimes the writers don’t even pay attention to what they’ve produced, so it gets hard to keep up.
Basically, we’re officially expanding beyond fairy-tales. And expect double the amount of Lana Parrilla next season.
This week on TV…. Once Upon a Time tested its fandom with questionable writing choices as the Underworld arc wrapped up. The Flash had a zombie metahuman and Barry trying to get back from…wherever he went. Arrow tried to stop a nuclear apocalypse, just like any other day. Read on for our full thoughts!
This week on TV…Regina and Zelena grow closer on Once Upon a Time through a ham-handed retcon, and Rumplestilstkin enlists an unlikely ally to protect his unborn child. In the last two weeks of The Flash, Barry took on Zoom…with not much success, and had to deal with the aftermath of that battle. This week on Arrow saw the team struggling with the loss of one of their own, and an imposter who starts impersonating her around the city. Read on for our full thoughts and recaps!
Welcome back, TV lovers! This week, Once Upon a Time gave us journeys of re-discovery for Mary Margaret and her old pal Hercules, played by Jonathan Whitesell. Hades (Greg Germann) continues to shine as the harsh ruler of the Underworld, but I still don’t get the point of his CGI hair.
