A Review of Once Upon A Time In Wonderland

I’ve been meaning to write my review of Once Upon A Time In Wonderland for a while now, but haven’t gotten around to until now. So, I read this article, which was published the day after the show premiered, and I’ve been watching the show from the start. I honestly can say that I’m not surprised that Once Upon A Time In Wonderland didn’t do as well as Once Upon A Time. I say that for the same main reasons that are mentioned in the article: going up against shows like The Vampire Diaries, The Big Bang Theory, and The X-Factor, etc., and the fact that past shows in the same time slot have not done well. I also think that it’s partly due to the fact that the show does not show on the same night as OUAT, whether it shows before or after. I mean, I obviously can’t say anything for other people, but I know for me, I find it annoying that I have to watch both shows on separate nights. I would much rather get into a OUAT mindset on the same night as opposed to having to get into a OUAT mindset on two separate nights. I also think that it doesn’t help much that Once Upon A Time In Wonderland doesn’t show the “great love” between Alice and Cyrus. What I mean by that is we, as the audience, don’t see what makes the love between Alice and Cyrus so great that Alice and Cyrus would do anything to get back to each other, as opposed to what was shown in OUAT with Snow White and Prince Charming. I mean, with Snow White and Prince Charming, OUAT kept showing Snow White and Prince Charming’s history with each other and how their relationship grew to be what it was. That is not shown with Alice and Cyrus in OUATIW. We have no sense of Alice and Cyrus’ history with each other, other than what was shown in the first two episodes of the show. That has not been kept in the rest of the aired episodes. Anyway, I don’t know if OUATIW will be able to have the same “magic” as OUAT. It doesn’t seem like it so far.

The Logic Fails of Season 2 of Once Upon A Time

Wow, I haven’t posted anything on here since January. Anyway, with the second season of Once Upon A Time having finished on the 12th, there are some things that I didn’t quite get. The things are pretty summed up in the two links I’m posting.

The Once Upon A Time Premiere

I know it’s a week since the Once Upon A Time season 2 premiere, but I wanted to get my thoughts out before the second episode airs tonight at 7:00 Hawaii time. I have a lot of questions dealing with the episode. A majority of the questions are pretty much summed up in the following articles. However, I have additional questions.

  • How did Mulan and Prince Philip know how long they were frozen? Does time work the same in Fairytale Land?
  • How can the Wraith medallion be in two different worlds at once? Or is there more than one medallion that can control the wraith? Because we see Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin holding onto it the “real” world while we also see Mulan put the medallion in a pouch and gives it to Sleeping Beauty/Aurora.
  • Can the Dark One control creatures like wraiths?
