My first thought, we could have just ended the series with the last season, everything was all settled and wrapped up nicely with the characters that you know, maybe hate and have possibly grown to love. This season doesn’t really make me change my mind. But I really want to! Why? Three reasons 1) Gabrielle Anwar…love her and miss all of her FABULOUS outfits in USA Network’s Burn Notice; 2) Adelaide Kane…loved her in The CW’s Reign…but since loosely based on the story of Queen Mary of Scotts, its clear the show could not last forever (oh and wardrobe for Reign was on FIYAH!); 3) Dania Ramírez…I immediately recognized her from Devious Maids on Lifetime, I appreciate the diversity being added here.
I like that the show is shaking up these timeless fairytales with main characters who look more representative of our society today. I noticed that it appears that they have added Princess Tiana into the mix…finally! And these are some of the reasons I really want to love this season. I’m just not there yet. I get the idea of multiple dimensions with their own versions of the same stores going. I do think it is cute that they have started this season the way the show originally started. But the fact that they are reinventing their own wheel, I guess I just feel like it is unnecessary. I wondered if moving to Friday was a bad sign, but NBC’s Grimm was on Friday and I REALLY enjoyed that show…hated to see it end last year (you just get so emotionally attached to these shows sometimes!). I digress..I’m going to continue to hold on, in hopes that I get where I…hope to be with this show.
How do you feel about Operation Next Chapter, now that the 2nd episode of season 7 has aired?
