Thanks to growing up watching Disney movies, I’m a sucker for fairytales, so I was very excited when I saw the promo for ABC’s Once Upon A Time. The premise is simple: The Evil Queen enacted a curse that took everyone from the Enchanted Forest and settled them in Storybrooke, Maine, with no memories of who they used to be.
Edward Kitsis, who co-created the show, describes it as this:
Once Upon A Time is, at its core, a story about hope. For us, that’s what a fairytale is. It’s that ability to think your life will get better. It’s why you buy a lottery ticket—because if you win you get to tell your boss that you’re quitting and you get to move to Paris or wherever and be who you always wanted to be. Adam and I just wanted to write about something hopeful that for one hour a week allows one to put everything aside and have that feeling that your dreams just may come true.
Sherlock Holmes is a great man. And I think one day--if we’re very, very lucky--he might even be a good one.
EB recommended I watch Sherlock, BBC’s modern adaptation of Sherlock Holmes. I added it to my Netflix queue awhile ago and it finally came up. The first series (or season, depending on where you’re from) has 3 90-minute episodes.
The shooting style is very visually appealing and the London backdrop is beautiful! (I miss London so much!) I love the chemistry between Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Sherlock Holmes, and Martin Freeman, as Dr John Watson. Their introductory awkwardness is too cute. As the show progresses, you can see that the two are made for each other and complement each other very well. Continue reading »

Since we missed (mostly) all of Supernatural’s season 6, my friend & I decided to marathon the episodes on the first DVD. Then, we got silly and decided to make a meal to eat during the marathon. The above picture is a result, and are all made from scratch. It was really fun. I hope we’ll have more marathons like that
