Okay, haven't gotten around to it, but I joined [livejournal.com profile] ecclescult via [livejournal.com profile] fannishliss' rec and I was able to download The Revenger's Tragedy. I will watch it tomorrow after work. I didn't get to watch Dalek this morning so I had to replace watching a CE work with that. I have two, short ideas fluttering about for challenge 88 so we shall see which one takes fruit; I'll be off to [livejournal.com profile] then_theres_us in a bit before sleepy-time because I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] bloose09 has something for me. :P

Last night/early this morning I did get to watch episode 2 of Once Upon a Time and Recovery. So emotional~.

Once Upon a Time

If episode 1 didn't do the trick, episode 2 definitely got me hooked. I actually felt sorry for the Evil Queen. What~?! She is now nothing but an empty shell. All her fault, but still! I can't believe she killed her father and felt for it! Maleficent, Sleeping Beauty's witch, makes an appearance as EQ's bff (made me think of you [livejournal.com profile] scutegirl!) and is played by the actress who plays Pam in True Blood!

Emma was awesome! I love the way she handles EQ. I need more to have an opinion on the sheriff, but hmm...not such a bad guy. Jiminy Cricket/psychologist dude is sweet. Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold is scary as heck! I want to squish Snow White's human form.

Speaking of SW... I WANNA KNOW WHAT SHE DID TO MAKE THE QUEEN HATE HER!!! WHO WAS THE EVIL QUEEN'S LOVE?!?!?!

Henry, Henry, Henry! So cute!

Overall, a very enjoyable episode!

Recovery

Recovery was a painful journey and a not so happy ending, but I was WOWed by Tennant's performance. Parish was pretty good too; I can understand that she was frustrated, but she frustrated me by not having some sympathy and more patience. Of course, I can't imagine what it is to go through that. The kids~. :( I felt for the oldest because I'm the oldest of my sisters and I know how hard it can be to have that role. I wanted to cuddle the youngest; poor baby! Even if it wasn't a so happy ending, I still loved how Tennant's character stood his ground and told Parish's character that he wanted to do his best to make things work. *Sniffle*

I'm surprised I wasn't in tears after those ~2 1/2 hours of video!
I have work tomorrow from 4PM-8PM, so I'll work on my one-shot(s) for challenge 88 and be adding more to the next chapter of SMW before then.

Buenas noches!

It was quite painful to see Tennant looking so lost and confused, wasn't it? That really got me when I watched. I think Parish's character (truly awful with names at the moment) tried to be patient at the start, where she kept talking to him when he was in the hospital.

I really winced on behalf of the oldest during that scene where he googled 'coma' or 'brain damage'.

Actually don't remember the ending...

Glad you watched it!

It was! I did feel sorry for Parish's character and I know things can be frustrating, but she was a little too in denial in the beginning for me once he woke up.

Well, I guess it was a happy ending, all things considered. The oldest is in college, the other three move into a smaller home, and (I think) Tennant's character will be at that home for others that have been brain damaged every once in a while (or was there for a while?). I barely saw it and I already forgot! XD

Thanks so much for recommending it!
