Once about OUAT love, now more of a OUAT (and Adam Horowitz) hate blog (with a SF reblog here and there). Those who still think the show is the best thing ever and want 10,000 CS babies, you are not welcome here. This is only for those hate watchers out there who hate what their once favorite show has become and hate themselves for still giving a shit.

(Don't give me shit about the anon ask. I know there are plenty of nice anons out there, but there are also many who are just haters. If you don't want to be traced back to your blog, why should I listen to you?)

In this episode of a five-part series, Grantland’s Chris Ryan and Andy Greenwald recommend ‘Terriers,’ a crime-drama TV series that was canceled after its first season on FX despite its critical acclaim. Watch it!

Yeah, except JMo is ga-ga for Colin’s looks and forgets how horrible Hook’s treated Emma.

So true. I have lost all respect for JMo. She whitewashes his character as badly as A&E who are now going to have the Charmings supportive of this toxic romance thanks to the “Snow Drifts” retcon of “Snow Falls”.

Roxane Gay interview (Press Play w/ Madeleine Brand — KCRW)

As soon as the August 20th show is posted, check out the “Bad Feminist” interview with Roxane Gay. Also at iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/kcrws-press-play-madeleine/id807752117?mt=2). Anyone out there who has become frustrated with pop culture (TV, movies, music) promoting rape culture, Roxane will put into words what you’re thinking.

Like Roxane, I find myself torn over entertaining shows that condone rape or promote horrible female/relationship characterizations as pro-women that are clearly not. As clever as the Ice Bucket challenge is for ALS awareness, those of us who are disgusted by this rape culture “Blurred Lines” trend (nevermind this stupid notion of women swooning to change the murderous, sexual assault-committing bad boy into a slightly less bad boy who claims them as a reward for being slightly less evil) should start a viral video to promote awareness of how NOT post-feminist we are and how pop culture is actually taking us backwards to a time when women were always asking for it and if the guy is hot then why don’t you want it? The Western World may not be ISIL/ISIS where women are oppressed like property, but just as America (where much of this pop culture comes from) has clearly not resolved the race issue, it has also clearly not outgrown the misogynist ways of yesteryear.

Bad Feminist | Roxane Gay

I am not on Twitter, but could someone start a campaign to get Jennifer Morrison to read Bad Feminist for her book of the week? Maybe she would realize what a horrible message she is spreading by promoting the CS relationship and enlighten the rest of the cast and writers to the cesspool of rape culture that OUAT has devolved into!

Read. #Stoponceuponahook

I am not surprised by his lame sympathetic response. Adam Horowitz promotes appalling messages about women that even women buy into. He is a prime offender of using language and portrayals of relationships and women that promote/condone rape culture, and his female cast and writers who go along with are bad feminists all around.

(I recommend Roxane Gay’s essays on the topic of the media, feminism, and rape culture. http://www.roxanegay.com/bad-feminist/)

Wow. That is a HUGE compliment coming from Bobby…

Truth.

#UnfollowAMan

Somehow I am just finding out about this “#UnfollowAMan" trend. Why unfollow a man on Twitter? The trendsetter Katie Notopoulos (@katie notopoulos) says their voices are obnoxiously loud and belligerent. I can think of one such man who regularly confuses being an ass with sass. He waxes enlightened on Twitter about how he writes empowered women for his daughters to look up to — while actually condoning physical violence against women, glamorizing skanky relationships, and has turned the women on his television show into dimwits who are regularly tied up, felt up, and have story-lines and character development entirely dependent upon getting into bed with men who’re either murderous villains in need of redemption through some sweet pussy as their sole inspiration to not punch little old ladies or poor saps destined to help get their nether regions consentually juicy after years of hard-core magical raping now-forgotten sex slaves. I know I want my future hypothetical daughters to look up to genocidal maniacs who physically assault the weak for their own gain — and the women (and men) who enable them! Right, ladies?

Who is this horse’s ass who thinks he’s turning old-school fairy tales into family friendly feminist material (instead of just fucking up the original creepy chauvinist material even more)? He goes by @AdamHorowitzLA and his narcissistic, misogynist voice needs some smothering. So if he’s on your Twitter feed and “has been kind of driving you nuts with his bad opinions… unfollow his ass.”

My response in the comments section on the soul mates issues. I don’t know about you, but with soul mates like on OUAT, I disagree with Adam & Eddy. I’d take my chances with Twitter over OUAT characters on finding love, considering Twitter can’t have worse than a 100% chance of your soul mate being a murderer who tried to rape or kill you or your family which is also his/her family. I mean really, guys, and the flubbed nonsense trying to define true love and trying not to answer the CS question and make it seem like this is still about Emma’s journey and not a complete sell-out to the studio over good writing? Bullshit I say!

This is terrible! When do they get to killing the children?

All he wants to see is children fighting to the death. That was my feeling about OUAT 3A: Less Emma love triangle crap, more murderous Lost Boys.

No shit they changed radically. The only thing that’s stayed the same is the bad CGI!

OUAT “a greatly underrated show,” due to its reputation as “a big family show.”? Try because the writing is crap. There’s nothing family at all about it! One character’s grandfather married the daughter of the woman he was engaged to and then ruined her life so she had to leave her quasi-rape baby in the woods who came back years later to murder her half-sister’s adoptive son’s father whose own step father is trying to bed the kid’s birth mom after spending centuries murdering and whoring around following the murder of the woman he cuckolded by her jilted husband who was abandoned by his psycho dad which traumatized him into abandoning his own kid who then abandoned his own kid. And the kid’s other grandmother had a one-night-stand with the guy her husband was totally okay with delivering their baby, the baby that his wife openly declared in front of her first born and abandoned daughter that she wanted to have as a replacement — her daughter who grew up alone after her parents trusted a man with a puppet fetish who was raised by the guy who accidentally murdered his parents by turning the into puppets while trying to kill his own — but they forgave him and her step-mother who murdered hundreds of people including a man whose kid she was staking after trying to kill her step-daughter and step granddaughter like she did her husband and her own father whom she named her adoptive son after, the son she got by ruining hundreds of lives including the kid’s birth mother, but she doesn’t regret that, yet she’s reformed enough to do the walk of shame with a single dad and babysit his kid whose mom she had executed. And Peter Pan is a deadbeat, child-abducting and torturing dad. This is family viewing? Then so is Game of Thrones!

If their intent was to showcase how dark and twisted fairytales are traditionally around the world… but they seem to think they’re telling masterful love stories about family, hope, and magic. Fucking Disney, as well! And I love Disney! God, I feel like I needed them to pick an avenue and stick with it. Own-up if they wanted something darker or do the light and frothy! You can’t have it all! You can’t successfully work all sides of the coin and appeal to everyone! There’s no way, if I have children some day, I’d sit them down and watch this show. Disturbing and dangerous behaviors are too quickly forgotten on this show!

Maybe, if we’re lucky, HBO will have a show about fairytale adaptations in a couple years. It would be highly sexualized, dark, twisted: and it would openly love every minute of this instead of doing something controversial, never discussing it again, hope the audience forgets, gets frustrated the audience doesn’t forget, take to twitter to tell the audience to forget, get frustrated the the audience calls you out on this BS.

I might be bitter and needing to just stop discussing this show and the creators anymore..

So true. I was listening to NPR the other day and someone talked about how Disney is now doing live action Dumbo, which was dark enough as a cartoon and being worried because Maleficent came off like a rape metaphor, suggesting they don’t really know how to adapt fairy tales to live action without it just being creepy.

And it sounded to me like Paul Lee was saying that people don’t watch because they are misinformed that OUAT is a family show… in a Sunday night family time slot… that promotes itself as a family show… Huh? I’m very confused by his mixed signals.

Well, 24 is over… for now? It had such a great run. The ending was quite sad, but left pleanty of loose ends for another mini-series edition. Fans were so woried that it would be stale and past its prime, but I for one loved every hour of it. I wish more network dramas would switch to shorter seasons like cable and eliminate the stale plotlines. I have my fingers crossed that Jack will be back! Dammit!
