Hello, hola, bonjour, und guten tag, my fellow Deviants. It's that time again, time for me to review the season finales of my favorite shows. As always, WARNING, SPOILERS BELOW. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
First up, of course, it Once Upon a Time. I would've written a review sooner, but I wanted to wait until I watched Agents of SHEILD, so I could kill two proverbial birds with one proverbial stone. Now, First things first, it is official: Henry is a teenager. I say this because A) he's going off on a reckless, half baked mission to destroy magic, and B) he's also subconsciously doing this to impress a girl (Who's the daughter of the Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court; crazy right?). It is also official that OUAT is giving stories that weren't 'Disney-fied' a chance. I have been waiting for so long; ever since we've learned that all the different realms of this show are Realms of Fiction. I mean, the bibliophile in me is screaming "YEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!" And seeing the Land of Untold Stories (FYI, love that name) looked like a Steampunk paradise. I certainly would want to live there. Then there is the case (pun intended) of Mr. Hyde. I must say, Sam Witwer was BORN to play Edward Hyde; he's got the voice, the looks (red eyes or no, he's still a sexy beast), the savagery and cunning to play him. I'm serious, he's just how I've always pictured him in my mind's eye; right down to the scar, the red eyes, and the wicked set of mutton chops. Wouldn't be sweet if Sam Huntington played Dr. Jekyll? The two Sams, together again. And finally, Regina's battle with her dark side. That scene in Neal's apartment alone was simply flawless. It made me fell in love with Regina all over again. Then her confrontation with the Evil Queen on the rooftop, truly poetry in motion. And with the Evil Queen coming back to play, obviously means she and Mr. Hyde are going to hook up. I've even thought up of a ship name: Hyde Queen.
Now, the Agents of SHEILD review. First off, I LOVE Holden Radcliffe. He's funny as hell, and he's a transhumanist, and frankly, it's about time Transhumanism gets represented, am I right? Transhumanism is the way of the future, people. I'll write more about my ideas of Transhumanism in some future entry. I hope we see more of Radcliffe next season; ally or villain, it works for me either way. Next, that scene with Hive and Coulson was awesome. We get to see Hive's real face (which looks WAY better than I imagined it), Coulson was at his best, and he was a hologram. HOW COOL WAS THAT!?! Finally, we have the dreaded 'Who Will Die' revelation. It turns out that the one to die was... Lincoln. Proving once again, Joss Whedon hates love. Well, at least it wasn't FitzSimmons (that's the only ship I care about on that show). I feel sad for Daisy, truly, but I just didn't see her with him. On a side note, the Goth/Punk looks great on her.
That's all for now.
