We already know we’re heading to Neverland in season 3 of Once Upon a Time this fall – which means we’ll meet Peter Pan – but there’s still plenty of other characters we’re hoping we’ll meet for the first time during the new season.
Here’s our wish-list for season 3:
Producers have been talking about a desire to bring on the most-famous mermaid outside of Splash since the beginning and now, knowing that we’re heading to a world with a Lot of water, it seems like the perfect time for us to meet Ariel. The show hasn’t shied away from mixing fairy tale characters in other universes – think Hook and the Queen of Hearts in cahoots this season – so why couldn’t Ariel show up on the beach when Emma and team dock at the beginning of next season?

Tony Awards 2013: Stage-Movie connection ranges from Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Kinky Boots to Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (photo: Emilia Clarke, Cory Michael Smith in Breakfast at Tiffany’s) [See previous post: "Tony Awards 2013 Nominations: Tom Hanks, Sigourney Weaver Among Potential Contenders."] Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, possibly up for a 2013 Tony Award in the Best Revival of a Play category, was made into an Academy Award-nominated movie in 1966. Mike Nichols directed Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, George Segal, and Sandy Dennis, from a screenplay by Ernest Lehman. Taylor and Dennis won Oscars as, respectively, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. In this latest Broadway revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, the stars are Tracy Letts, Amy Morton, Madison Dirks and Carrie Coon. Peter Masterson’s 1985 film version of Horton Foote’s The Trip to Bountiful, another possible Best Revival nominee, earned Geraldine Page a Best Actress Academy »

Three Takes is a new column dedicated to the art of short-form criticism. Each week, three writers—Calum Marsh, Fernando F. Croce, and Joseph Jon Lanthier—offer stylized capsules which engage, in brief, with classic and contemporary films.
Design For Living (1933)
“It’s true we have a gentlemen’s agreement,” susurrates a suggestively bed-strewn Miriam Hopkins, “but unfortunately I am no gentlemen.” Indeed: never before or since has the fulcrum of a three-way so iconically longed or been longed for, soaking up desire like a sponge. Design for Living, of course, has enjoyed a now 80-year legacy on the promise of its barely muffled libertine sensibility, that same vague aura of licentiousness in which nearly every remotely racy pre-Code comic romance is anachronistically steeped. Design for Living certainly makes use of the luxury of candor—sex as a subject is plainly on the table here, explicated without »

The Made in Jersey star has been cast in a starring role in what appears might be interesting ABC’s monster drama Gothica – from Jersey girl to Lady Van Helsing, Janet Montgomery is making quite a leap. Gothica has a sort of Once Upon a Time concept of blending fictional characters with the modern world; it takes place in the present but incorporates stories from famous literary monster-classics, including Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Janet Montgomery’s character is Grace van Helsing. She’s the ex-wife of Dr. Frankenstein (Tom Ellis) and the partner of Dorian Gray (Chris Egan). A well-known writer from a publishing »

The actress (Made in Jersey) will portray the female lead in Gothica, an unusual drama set in modern times that incorporates legends such as Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Frankenstein. Sounds like a spin on Once Upon a Time to us.
Montgomery has been cast as Grace Van Helsing, the daughter of this famous vampire hunter who returns to run her family's newspaper.
The popular, busy actor (Love Bites, Vegas, The Client List) will come on board as the main character's developmentally disabled (yet high-functioning) older brother Mark. He as the receptionist at his sibling's law firm and possesses an undying belief in Kinnear's lawyer. »

On Sunday night, something unusual happened at the 85th Annual Academy Awards -- there was a tie.
The Oscars tie had two winners for Best Sound Editing -- "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Skyfall."
Although it is rare, Oscars ties have happened before.
In 1932, Frederic March won the Best Actor award for "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and tied with Wallace Beery for "The Champ" because Beery only beat him by one single vote, Slate notes. The rules allowed for a one-vote difference to be called a tie back then, but today it must be the exact same.
The Best Documentary Short award had a tie in 1949, according to ABC News. That category also had a tie in 1986.
"Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life" and "Trevor" tied for Best Short Film (Live Action) in 1995, Moviefone notes.
Most famously, Barbara Streisand and Katherine Hepburn tied in the heavyweight category of Best Actress, »

The teams from "Skyfall" and "Zero Dark Thirty" tied Sunday night in the Sound Editing category at the Oscars, but this isn't the first time there has been a tie during Hollywood's biggest night.

When actor Mark Wahlberg announced a tie for the winner of best sound editing the Oscars attendees thought it was a joke. “No, I’m not kidding,” Wahlberg said. It was true. For only the third time in the history of the Academy Awards, two people would take home an Oscar for the same category.
Zero Dark Thirty and Skyfall both won Oscars for best sound editing in a film. According to sources, if a nominee is three or less votes behind the winner, a tie is declared. In 1931-32, Fredric March (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) and Wallace Beery (The Champ) tied for Best Actor and in 1968 Barbara Steisand (Funny Girl) and Katherine Hepburn (The Lion in Winter) tied for Best Actress. Everyone wants to be the one and only winner, but making history as being the third tie in the Academy’s history is not such a bad life. »

The surprise tie in this year's Best Sound Editing category officially makes this year's Oscars one for the record books: It's only the sixth time a tie has happened in Oscar history and the first in a technical category.
"Zero Dark Thirty" and "Skyfall" shared this year's Sound Editing award -- beating out "Argo," "Django Unchained" and "Life of Pi." (In an odd coincidence, both Kathryn Bigelow's acclaimed "Zero" and the blockbuster James Bond film "Skyfall" were both distributed by Sony Pictures.)
Perhaps the most famous tie happened in 1968, when Barbara Steisand's "Funny Girl" breakout performance tied with legendary Katherine Hepburn's turn in "The Lion in Winter" for Best Actress. We know from the record books that that was an exact tie, each actress received the same number of votes.
However, historically, Oscar will declare a tie if two nominees come within a few votes of each other. »
At this year's Academy Awards, there was a tie (gasp!). It was in the Best Sound Editing category, with the award going to Paul N.J. Ottosson for his work in "Zero Dark Thirty," and Per Hallberg and Karen Baker Landers for their work in "Skyfall." However, this wasn't the first time a tie happened at the Oscars. Back in 1969, both Katherine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand won in a much more publicized category -- Best Actress -- with Hepburn winning for her performance as Queen Eleanor in "The Lion in Winter," and Streisand as Fanny Brice in "Funny Girl." It also happened in 1932, with both Wallace Beery ("The Champ") and Frederic March ("Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde") winning Best Actor; in 1949, when "A Chance to Live" and "So Much for So Little" won the Best Documentary Short award; in 1986, with "Artie Shaw: Time Is All You've Got" and "Down and Out in America »

After a historically awful premiere and a follow-up episode that proved that sometimes the second version of something is even worse—like, sometimes it smokes cigarettes and is sarcastic to people—Do No Harm has been canceled, officially ending TV’s attempt to turn Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde into a show for at least this season. Last night’s episode pulled a dismal 0.7 rating, a 27-percent drop from its already all-time worst debut that led to Do No Harm joining the likes of The Paul Reiser Show, Lone Star, My Generation, and Emily’s Reasons Why Not »
What took so long?
NBC has cancelled Do No Harm.
Sure that sounds really fast. Only two episodes have aired. But the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde medical drama premiered last Thursday to rank as the lowest-rated in-season broadcast scripted series debut in modern history. Last night’s second episode declined even further, down 22 percent in the demo a 0.7 among adults 18-49 and 2.2 million viewers.
Do No Harm will be replaced by encore broadcasts of Law & Order: Svu for the next two weeks.
More to come… »

Do No Harm is officially done. After earning the distinction of becoming the lowest-rated scripted premiere in the history of the Big Four networks, the midseason drama has been taken off NBC's schedule following two low-rated episodes. The widely panned medical series from creator David Schulner was a modern update of Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It opened to just a 0.9 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 3.1 million viewers, then dipped even lower in week two to a 0.7 demo rating. Photos: From 'Do No

Bet NBC is missing The Voice today.
After ruling the fall in the ratings, the network hasn’t had much to sing about ever since its prized reality competition series started its winter break in December. NBC’s primetime average has dropped 16 percent since the beginning of the year. Freshman comedies Go On and The New Normal — previously boosted with a Voice lead-in — fell to season-low performances this week. A new Monday-night drama launched last month, Deception, is delivering weak numbers. And now another midseason drama, the medical show Do No Harm, had its series premiere Thursday night and set a broadcast ratings record. »

NBC premiered the latest television take on the classic tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In this case it's the strange case of Dr. Jason Cole and his alter ego, Ian. Steven Pasquale takes on the dual role of a renowned neurosurgeon by day and a crazed psychopath by night.
When the series picks up, Jason had managed to keep Ian subdued by knocking himself out for twelve hours every night. His alter ego normally takes over between 8:25 p.m. and 8:25 a.m. The problem is that Ian has built up an immunity to the serum, and so he starts breaking free.
Ian and Jason have no idea what the other gets up to during their time at the helm. Ian, though, has five years of resentment and anger toward Jason. His first move is to terrify the doctor that Jason is interested in. He's been afraid »

Like Sherlock Holmes, Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has been done and redone to death. But also like Sherlock, there are still ways to modernize it and keep it fresh. Whether Do No Harm is one of those who can do so well remains to be seen. Viewers of the BBC series Jekyll, healmed by Sherlock and Doctor Who scribe Steven Moffat, will find a lot of similarities with Do No Harm. But the later series has the opportunity to not turn into the same mess Jekyll eventually became (within six episodes!) if it just sticks to the basics. Hit the jump for more on this updated classic. The idea of Jekyll and Hyde can also manifest as a personality disorder, such as a person having "alters" (like in Showtime's great but very uneven series United States of Tara). But »

NBC's new drama Do No Harm introduces a leading man with two very different sides; Steven Pasquale plays a man with alternate personalities. The midseason show, which premieres tonight, is loosely based on the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and the stakes are raised a bit more, since the good personality is also a surgeon. If you're wondering whether Do No Harm is worth adding to your DVR, read on to find out what we thought of the series's pilot. What it's about: Jason Cole (Pasquale) is a successful neurosurgeon, but he has a big secret: he has another identity - "Ian Price" - who is narcissistic, destructive, and basically evil. Jason takes medication to suppress Ian's ability to emerge, but his bad identity has started to become resistant to the drug, and when Ian does come out, he's determined to wreck Jason's life, personally and professionally.

It's so hard to say goodbye to 30 Rock.
Yes! Hunky sheriff Jamie Dornan is returning to Once Upon a Time. Storybrooke has gotten a lot more hunky since the woodsman/sheriff died, but it'll be great to see him pretty up the town once more.
It's finally become official and CBS has ordered a ninth season of How I Met Your Mother, which will be the comedy's final season. Too bad the chance for Himym to go out on top is long past.
Comedian T.J. Miller has been cast in the HBO comedy pilot Silicon Valley, Deadline reports. That can't be a good sign for The Goodwin Games, the yet-to-debut Fox comedy starring Miller, Scott Foley and Becki Newton.
Andy Dehnart is completely right when he says that The Taste's judges are really infuriating to watch when they say they can't explain why they rejected a competitor. I really »
ABC is making a rather interesting and eclectic choice with Tuesday's (Jan. 29) pilot orders. The picks range from a show based on the Big Thunder Mountain ride in the Disney theme parks to the monsters of gothic novels (like "Frankenstein") come to life. Altogether, four drama pilots were ordered.
A project based on Big Thunder Mountain will be set in a mining town in the 19th century. A brilliant New York City doctor and his family relocate there, where a mysterious tycoon runs the show. All will not be what it seems. Jason Fuchs and Chris Morgan wrote the pilot and will executive produce.
"Gothica" is a supernatural, gothic, soapy drama set in the present day but featuring many of the monsters of the 19th century. Legendary figures like Dracula, Dorian Gray, Frankenstein (not sure if it's the monster or the man), and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde all feature. »
The Puppy Bowl was already a distraction of cuteness, with puppies playing, kittens for a halftime show, but it just upped the Aww! factor with the addition of hedgehog cheerleaders.
181 service members that were involuntarily discharged under Don't Ask, Don't Tell will be receiving their full separation pay under a settlement reached Monday. Previously, separated service members only received 50% of the standard pay. The statute of limitations ran out on other members being part of the settlement.
Taylor Swift and Harry Styles have reportedly broken up while vacationing in the Virgin Islands, which is a joke in itself. But not to worry, as I'm sure we'll be hearing all about it in a new song in short order, and isn't that what »
