Why we Oncers need to give our attention to ‘Emerald City’
A lot of people are understandably jaded by OUAT these days. Dropped storylines, questionable plots, atrocious dialogue/characterization, to name a few. For whatever reason, many of us, including myself, are still mostly loyal to Once. However, we NEED to give our attention to the new show, ‘Emerald City’ on NBC. Why? Let me tell you:
Each episode is directed by the very talented Tarsem Sign, who is Indian.
A large cast of very diverse women in general:
Creepy af imagery (do you see the skinned man in the corner?)
The brilliant Vincent D’Onofrio
This amazing Witch of the West (who may very well give Regina run for her money)
Oncers, we have an obligation as lovers of fantasy to give this show a chance. Please watch it January 6th on NBC. Please give it a chance. I have a feeling it’ll be everything Once wishes it could be–amazing sets, good writing, POC characters who actually stick around, and a beautiful reimagination. Here’s the trailer:
