Once Upon A Time (up to Series3)
Before Series 4 is coming, I somehow reached to the end of S3.
As is often said, making sequel for great stories sounds easier than making the one from scratch. However, there is another difficulty; keeping every character in who they are. cannot allow them to be out of the character. Surely, there should be changes, like Regina’s becoming better, yet she still possess the past called evil queen. Maybe Hook is bit out of character, but which is still the typical one as a pirate. Ever since he appeared, he has been honest with his feeling, what he loves. Even in the enchanted world, he was just sincere to himself, even though it did hurt someone.
So, the point is, this TV show is quite organized and well planed. Since most of the story is gathered into, sometimes unbelievable meeting was happened such as Mulan and Bell were helping each other. But still it makes sense. I suppose the key is the structure of the each story. most of fairly tail tends to be the two opposite sides, good and evil, Hero and Villain. Therefore, it makes connecting the stories easier. Needless to say, Jealousy must come from the close relationship such as step-mother and daughter or step-sisters. Means if some blood relationship could settle between the characters, all stories become make sense.
Regarding Emma, despite she was once a Leia, she is being a sequel sequel, I mean the daughter of Prince Charming and Snow white, whose wedding story was a sequel. So that no matter how much she made unbelievable stuff, it’s just a sequel of sequel after the first sequel.
I was wondering why I’ve been so much intrigued by this TV show, then, now, I have a clue.
Like the fairly tail does, always this TV show gave us a relief; bad incident was managed to be solved and have a good end. Emma, protagonist, often made a wrong choice, guide, or accident. But she never just let it ruined. She fixed it. at least took charge of, willingly. Hero can be weak, but never being it. face own weakness, admit own weakness, and getting stronger enough to hold such weakness.
I wish I can say I want to be such. I crave to be “weak” enough to drag myself to tomorrow like Emma.
