Once Upon a Time
[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday's Once Upon a Time season finale. Read at your own risk!]
With Storybrooke on the brink of destruction, Once Upon a Time's Season 2 finale sent a good chunk of our favorite characters away from their homes — but not for the reason we all thought.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
ABC released previews for its new shows on Tuesday, including Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Rebel Wilson's new comedy Super Fun Night and an extended peek at the highly anticipated Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
ABC has renewed 11 series, including vet Grey's Anatomy, which will enter its 10th season, and freshman series Nashville. However, the network also canceled Happy Endings, Body of Proof, Red Widow, Malibu Country and How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).
Marvels's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
ABC's fall schedule is starting to look pretty super.
The network has picked up Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from Avengers director and Buffy creator Joss Whedon. The series is based on...
The Evil Queen may get a chance to prove that she's not so evil after all.
Once Upon a Time's dastardly villain may get a chance to redeem herself in the season finale when Storybrooke is faced with certain annihilation, as Greg (Ethan Embry) and Tamara (Sonequa Martin-Green) get ready to activate the curse's trigger. Sure, Regina (Lana Parrilla) created the trigger as a backup plan to use someday, but certainly not when it would also put herself and her loved one — Henry (Jared Gilmore), of course — in danger. So what will she do when the entire town is faced with destruction? TVGuide.com turned to Parrilla to get the scoop on that and her feelings about the Evil Queen's not-so evil — and sometimes super-evil — motives during Season 2.
Chris O'Dowd and Tom Bennett
It can't be easy to learn that one's ancestor is a literal horse's ass. But sad-sack Londoner Tom Chadwick takes such news in stride, again quite literally, as he acquires his great-grandfather's horse costume from a long-ago pantomime show, and after trying the rear end on for size, adds it to his collection of quirky family keepsakes.
HBO's droll-to-the-point-of-precious and occasionally delightful Family Tree (Sunday, 10:30/9:30c) follows Tom on an offbeat personal odyssey into his cloudy lineage. "In our clan, family is what disappears when you're not looking at it," says his retired dad, who keeps busy inventing useless objects like a fan for shoe trees. The dad is played by Michael McKean, who like the rest of the cast often talks directly into the camera, mock-documentary/improvisation style. The casting and the format are two of the more obvious signs that Tree is a Christopher Guest production.
John Krasinski and Jimmy Fallon
Our top moments of the week:
13. Best Honesty, Part I: When Zoe Saldana stops by Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she isn't afraid to reveal why she's talking more slowly than usual — because she's really hungover! Saldana explains that she drank eight or nine glasses of wine with her Star Trek cast after the film's Mexico premiere and ate huevos rancheros at 4:30 a.m. before (almost) vomiting at the airport. "I don't know what time it is right now," she says. "Literally, I don't." Um, it is...
