ONCE UPON A TIME Opinion: “The Charmings” Are Two of the Best Parents on Television

o-SNOW-WHITE-PRINCE-CHARMING-facebook

After watching Sunday’s episode of ONCE UPON A TIME, I found myself asking the question: Are Snow White and Prince Charming (David) the best parents on television? If you think not, can there be an argument to the statement that they are the most adorable parents on television?

I’ve always thought the dynamic between Emma and her parents was one of the best things about this show. It’s such an interesting relationship and one that I haven’t seen before. Sure, there have been shows that have reunited parents and children after years apart but when they were reunited were the parents and child the same age..? I think not. [Read more...]

FAKING IT Scoop: Rita Volk Previews Tonight’s Big Episode!

rita volk faking it mtv

Big things happened last week on the sophomore season of the addictive MTV dramedy, FAKING IT. Not only did Amy find out about Liam’s (Gregg Sulkin) family secret, Karma (Katie Stevens) went and told the whole drama club that her and Amy weren’t really dating. Also, did I mention Laverne Cox was on the show? She was incredible, hilarious and hopefully a recurring character. This week things are bound to get messy! By the looks of this week’s preview it appears that Karma might know about Amy and Liam’s big secret. Watch tonight at 10:30 to see what happened!

I caught up with Rita Volk about Amy’s growth throughout the season, her possible friendship with Liam, and what we can look forward to on tonight’s episode. [Read more...]

THE ORIGINALS Recap: “Every Mother’s Son”

daniel gillies the originals elijah

The third episode of THE ORIGINALS gave us insight into who Esther, the Mikaelson matriarch, is and gave a recap to any non-The Vampire Diaries watchers at the origin of the hatred between the Mikaelson family. When it came to Esther, I think the consensus is that the woman is pretty damn crazy. It’s believable that she loves her children (the flashbacks proved that) but she doesn’t know how to love in the right way. She shows love by breaking her children down or manipulating them into accepting her love.

Let’s get into all the craziness that happened. [Read more...]
