Other SIde of the Mirror #95 - Do You Want to Kill a Snowman? Full Recap of A Tale of Two Sisters

by Bri and Alex
album Other Side of the Mirror

There were things to like about the season 4 premier, A Tale of Two Sisters, particularly the dynamite scenes with Regina and Emma. We don’t spend much time discussing Frozen. And we are unconvinced that Emma has feelings for Hook. Also up for discussion:

This Week in the Best Fairy Tale on the Show:  Regina and Emma.

This Week in Bad Regina:  We admonish Regina for keeping Sydney locked up.

This Week in We Have to Talk About Henry:  His moms are kissing men with no hands and stuff.

This Week in Reindeer Lore:  Alex is writing fan fiction about Sven joining Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

This Week in Fun with Fonts:  Comic Sans, Courier New and Wing Dings.

This week in Alex & Bri:  Apparently there can be no podcast without Care Bears or Xena.

This Week in Feedback:  Fantastic ideas by Aleana, Leslie, Hannah, Shary and Nonnie.

Show Notes

Bri referenced the book Into the Wild, by Sarah Beth Durst.

Music by the one and only Madonna.

Other Side of the Mirror #94 - Monsters Inc. Instant Reaction to A Tale of Two Sisters

by Bri and Alex
album Other Side of the Mirror

This is our instant reaction to A Tale of Two Sisters, the Season 4 premier of Once Upon a Time. Bri was not exactly into this episode or the Frozen storyline and for once, Alex was urging patience while the story develops. This episode involved magical entrails, the Michelin Man and the computer game Myst. We discussed our likes, dislikes and casting thoughts, including:

Likes

Regina’s quest to rewrite the storybook!

We were right about the resolution of Marian, Robin and Regina!

Sidney returns!

Regina and Emma are Regina and Emma!

Rumple’s speech at the grave!

Dislikes

The glacial pace and how Frozen dominated the core characters…..

Trolls…. grumble grumble…

Rumple is Rumple…..

The introduction of another mystery person….

Belle squatting in the mansion that just happened to come over in the curse…

Casting

Anna - Yay!

Elsa - Maybe!

Kristoff - Nay!

That said we think it’s important to give them all a chance as this is only the beginning

Other Side of the Mirror #93 - Filler Finale, Full Summary of Snow Drifts/No Place Like Home and Your Feedback

by Bri and Alex
album Other Side of the Mirror

This is our summary of the last two episodes of Once Upon a Time's third season, Snow Drifts and There’s No Place Like Home. There wasn’t a whole lot of new material or development during the two hour block, so we have included your feedback on the entire season including the following:

We discuss the positive points of the finale beginning with an email from Aleana. We share two perspectives on Hook courtesy of Lisa and Denise and give our opinion on some of the issues with Hook that have divided the fandom.

We hear from Eric who has some great ideas on how the show should create their next villian.

We hear from Raissa with some killer points on the history of Beauty and the Beast, why the ship should have been a super couple, and why Rumple is now a Macguffin.

Erin shares her opinion of replacing Wicked with Frozen.

We give an anonymous commenter our best pitch on why they should watch season 4.

We answer the following questions from Tumblr:

Here’s some questions for your Season 3 Recap:

(1) What was your favorite episode of Season 3 and why? What was your least favorite episode of Season 3 and why?

(2) If you could change anything about Season 3, what would it be?

(3) A lot of people, including myself, view “Going Home” as the show’s series finale - the ending of the show we fell in love with. Do you also feel this way?

(4) Season 3 was filled with so many missed opportunities, especially 3B. What do you think was the worst missed opportunity/the missed opportunity that you think had the most potential?

(5) Seeing as how there are so many new characters being added to Season 4 - if you could kill off/get rid of any current OUAT character (excluding those yet to be introduced), who would it be?

Thank you much for the great feedback and questions, it really was the only way we possibly could have recapped the 2 hour finale!
