Episode 124: A Wondrous Place (Once Upon a Time 6×15)

OUAT a wondrous place episode agrabah aladdin and jasmine

Welcome back to another episode of fairy tale shenanigans. This week Once Upon a Time takes a magical carpet ride to places under the sea, deserted islands and Agrabah! Hook needs to get “crackin'” on getting back to Emma and clear up a really terrible misunderstanding. Jafar tries to explain his motivations regarding Agrabah, but do they really come across well? And does it even matter, because it looks like we’re done with the “Wondrous World,” after all. We also can’t forget to talk about ladies’ night at Aesop’s Tables (courtesy of Regina’s thrifty coupon cutting). Let’s chat!

Episode 104: Last Rites – Once Upon a Podcast

Once Upon a Time had some incredible highs and disappointing lows this week: Robin Hood’s ultimate sacrifice, and a surprise reunion between Captain Hook and Emma marked an emotional episode for both the characters and the audience. How did you feel about the developments and choices in the penultimate week of OUAT season 5? We have lots of thoughts – and so do our listeners – and theorize how these game-changing developments will impact the season finale and beyond. If there’s one thing that Once Upon a Time can guarantee, is more twists and cliffhangers.

  1. Welcome back and let’s dive right into our Top 5s
  2. Listener Letters
  3. News and post-mortem interviews about this episode
  4. It’s a wrap and a little surprise announcement for our listeners!

We’ll see you back here for the season 5 finale.

Episode 80: The Price – Once Upon a Time 5×02

Once Upon a Time the priceWhat is the price of magic – and who is willing to pay it? Can Regina step it up and be the new savior of Storybrooke? And has the darkness seduced Emma? (Considering that Darkness comes with a nice new house and great wardrobe, who could blame her.) There are so many questions, and even more things to talk about, in this action-filled and visually spectacular second episode of Once Upon a Time season five. Club Medieval was kicking, from charming dance lessons to Henry’s smooth moves and the sweet dances between Captain Swan and Outlaw Queen. It’s all fun and games until someone realizes that the savior used to be the Evil Queen. Every moment of this OUAT episode was exciting – and we do our best to cover it all in this week’s podcast!

Episode 71: Operation Mongoose Part I

Heroes and Villains Once Upon a TIme season 4 finaleWe made it to the end of another spectacular season of Once Upon a Time. (Or should we call it Heroes and Villains?)

The heroes and villains’ lives are turned upside down in this adventure-filled episode, and we break down all of our favorite moments. This podcast covers the first part of the season 4 finale; another podcast episode, which will be released Tuesday, will be about the second half of the season finale!
