Are you all basing the fact that young Lily is Latina because of the way the actress looks or because you know the actress is a Latina? If you’re basing it on knowing that the actress is a Latina, and projecting that onto the character of Lily then that isn’t the show’s fault. That’s your perception and conclusion. Plus if you make the correlation of Lily/Emma to Regina/Emma that doesn’t mean Lily is a Latina. It just means the essence of the relationship is similar. Change Lily to African-American or Asian but keep all else the same, the essence remains. Now we can assume or know the actress is Latina by her last name. But based on the picture posted earlier and looking at her physical characteristics she looks like Romanian, French, Lebanese, Ukranian, Russian women/girls I know. Watching the episode with Lily and Emma, it never crossed my mind that Lily was a Latina. What crossed my mind was the similarities and parallels between the relationships and situation. Lily could have been Larry and the similarities of the situation would have been the same.[adrotate group="5"]
I have a person in my household who surmises that the author is Mother Goose. Operation Mongoose… Mother Goose (in addition to the cobra thing).
The Author will be played by Emma Thompson
As Miracle Max would put it.
I love this movie!!! One of my favorites.I would love to see the Dread Pirate Roberts or Miracle Max hehe
Great idea! But I have a question. Do you want to discuss a book made into a movie or just any book and any movie? Current movies, in theaters today, or on dvd? (netflix, hulu etc.). Two weeks is a short period of time to fit in a book especially a trilogy :). You might have to limit the size of the book.
I also want to know how she became a foster mother–started the paper work to adopt Emma–when she has no SSN or other form of ID, education, references, ect
The other question is how did she actually locate Emma in our world. Did the Sorcerer’s scroll tell her? Maybe he conjured up some fake paper work too.
Identity theft. As much a problem then as it is now.
That scroll came from a magical place, from a magical person so it probably did help her locate Emma as well as SB. Also, a baby being left and found on the side of the road would have made national headlines back then. All she had to do was read about Emma found on the side of the road by a young boy and follow the story. The news story surely mentions that baby Emma went into the foster system . Newspapers kept you updated daily on this type of human interest story. (Look up Baby Jessica and you’ll see what I mean.) Baby found on the side of the road by 7 year old boy gets fostered out and then 3 years later returned would have made headlines in the 80s.
Maybe Hades will be one of the villains for season 5. With Panic and Pain. Would love to see another male villain! If season 5 is split into 2 parts, Jafar & Hades. A male villain centric season (I think that’s right). I don’t think Rumple will duel with Dumbledore. I would think getting the rights to HP or anything associated with HP would cost a fortune. (Now if the Harry Potter Park had opened at Disney instead of Universal…) and JKR would have to be involved. Rumple vs. Merlin…and Colin Morgan as Merlin!
I really thought that finding the author of the book and Rumple releasing himself from the dagger’s hold would be story lines for the series finale.December 8, 2014 at 4:38 pm in reply to: The Future of Live Televised Musicals. What Do You Want To See Next? #292511
If the musicals are aired around the holiday season why not Berlin’s White Christmas. I just saw the musical last week and it is fantastic. Or She Loves Me which ends at Christmas.
Phantom and Les Mis have had anniversary productions televised even if they weren’t made for TV as mentioned above. If you want to appeal to children then the Disney route is ideal though IMO not the best musicals are from Disney. I must be the only person in the world who didn’t like the Lion King past the opening number.
Grease – I saw with my daughters and they hated it. Because it wasn’t like the movie. But two of my girls in two different schools (in different countries) were part of a musical production based on the movie. I think that’s the only way it will work. Movie version not theater version. Thats the issue you come across is that movie versions of stage shows are more popular and well known but not necessarily better. Whereas stage versions of movies tend to not stray far from the original. I prefer Legally Blonde the musical over the movie. Whereas Flashdance the musical was awful.
That said I would watch (depending on casting):
White Christmas, She Loves Me, West Side Story, Cabaret, Million Dollar Quartet, Cinderella, The Addams Family, Anything Goes, South Pacific, Singing in the Rain, Joseph, Once…and the list goes on and on and on
