The caterpillar smoking the hookah lol
25 March 2012 | by (Columbus, Ohio USA) – See all my reviews

Hat Trick great. A surreal romp into some of the Alice in Wonderland story.... I wanted to hear the Q. of Hearts scream out, "Off with his head!" but it was merely a whimper/whisper. I did like the red colors of the people of Wonderland. Her soldiers dress in red, whereas the Evil Queen's soldiers are outfitted in dreary yet regal black. Both are quite spiffy IMO.

Regina needs her comeuppance, and she needs it badly. I would love to see her squirm, twitch, get tortured and her heart torn out. Maybe her father will do it, lol. She is such an evil S.O.B., and I mean that with all sincerity. Any woman who is nasty and horrible I call an S.O.B., because she has no feminine qualities.

I liked the part where psycho Jefferson (an odd name here) tries to convince Emma to believe in all the legends and stories. I even liked the part where Emma said she was going into the other room to kiss her mother, then she hauls off and cracks Jefferson with his telescope. The part of his beheading/healing scar was really creepy.

I didn't know that the Mad Hatter had such a backstory. I liked the parts about the two rabbits, the one in the marketplace and the one later made by Jefferson. I wish there had been a real, live rabbit like in Alice in Wonderland (maybe the Disney movie?), wearing a vest and pocket watch). Maybe he will show up in a later episode, and I wonder (pun intended) whose counterpart he is in Storybrooke. Perhaps Jefferson's handmade rabbit was wearing the vest, but I am not sure.

This is a great series. It beats out a lot of mediocre and poor shows on the rest of TV.
