ONCE UPON A TIME

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

Chan­nel 7, Tues­day, 7.30pm ★★★★ The thing I like about this show is the way the story jumps be­tween two worlds. In tonight’s episode, Emma (Jen­nifer Mor­ri­son, right, with Lana Par­rilla) comes to the aid of two chil­dren who are caught shoplift­ing and helps track down their fa­ther be­fore they are placed in fos­ter care. The par­al­lel story is Hansel and Gre­tel, their con­nec­tion with The Evil Queen and the Blind Witch. Just on Hansel and Gre­tel, I’ve al­ways won­dered what the moral of this fairy­tale was: don’t let your fa­ther re-marry some­one nasty; don’t run away from home; if you’re a witch, don’t eat chil­dren or it will back­fire; if you kill a witch, make sure you search her house for trea­sure; if you’re a step­mother, don’t be mean to your kids? Beats me. Fans of Lost will no­tice the ref­er­ence Once Upon a Time creators — Lost writ­ers Ed­ward Kit­sis and Adam Horowitz — thread into this episode. Keep a close eye on the stolen items.
