Sunday Night TV: “Homerland” and “The Heart of the Truest Believer”

I lost touch with Once Upon A Time some time ago, but it just started its third season with several characters joining Captain Hook on a journey to Neverland. Reluctant allies, angry mermaids, and sinister Lost Boys: is anyone here still watching?

The Simpsons, meanwhile, begins its twenty-fifth season with a Manchurian Homer and a couple of noteworthy guest-voices.

How many people keep Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie on their “watch” list?

  1. I’ve never been a regular Simpsons viewer, myself.
    I dropped Once Upon a Time towards the end of last season, as the writing had become disappointing, frustrating, and contrived.
    Or I felt it was, anyway. ;-)

  2. I used to be an avid Simpsons watcher, but I dropped in what must be close to 10 years ago now. I don’t even remember why I stopped watching, but perhaps that is telling enough.

    My wife and I still watch Once Upon a Time. It seems to be off to a good start so far this year. Last year was a bit … off. It seems like they wrote themselves into a corner and had trouble figuring a good way out. That said, I hope the current storyline is resolved in a few episodes and things move back to the original setting. Part of what really wore things down last year was the constant separation and rejoining of groups.

    Also, not genre, but Revenge seems to have returned to its roots as well, even lampshading the whole thing with a nice “Let’s never say carrion or initiative again” line in reference to things nobody liked about last season.
