Review: Once Upon a Time Ssn 7
Once Upon a Time there was a show that caught a lot of attention from episode 1. It was hugely successful with its take on fairy tales and other books of legend by incorporating those characters in the real world. Flash backs to their lives in the enchanted forest captivated young and old. It was strong for 4 seasons but hit a lull in story telling that became repetitive.
Season 7 returned to its roots by hitting a reboot by aging some of the characters, and bringing in different versions of ones that already existed. It was confusing to say the least, but for the long time fan, it was a breath of fresh air.
The format was roughly similar, but with a little tweaking made it less predictable and with new likeable characters. The main complaint I have about this final season is that it didn’t utilize non-fairy tale characters as they had done in the past. Centering mostly around Rapunzel, Mother Gothel, Cinderella, and Princess Tiana, the show could have used something else.
That being said, as far as series finales go, Once Upon A Time ended in one of the best ways. There was closure to everything. There were flashbacks to many characters stories that I’d forgotten, and there was even a little hint that maybe… just maybe… there might be a reunion miniseries or made for TV movie at some point.
Season 7 stood out as a little above average, but that’s far from bad. I give it 3 out of 5 sCrypt ratings. What did you think of the show’s farewell season? Comment below.
