Once Upon A Time: Season 5 Blu-Ray Review


The season of the dark Swan…

I began watching OUAT from the beginning and I never looked back. I’m a sucker for all things fairy tale and that Disney had a series with Snow White, the Wicked Queen and every other character imaginable? You couldn’t keep me away. I wait with bated breath for each season to start and especially when season 5 premiered. Emma becoming the Dark One??? What the…

Season 5 takes the cast and in turn, the viewer, to more locations than just the dark forest and Storybrooke. Besides those usual places, this season we travel to Camelot, the Underworld, DunBroch, Boston, New York and I’m sure some other lands I can’t recall right now. Like pure Once fashion, new characters we have known and loved, are introduced into the ‘family’. Owning the entire season on Blu-Ray is awesome, for fans like me because you get to watch your favorite episodes, whenever you want, but also the bonus features are such a delight!

• Audio Commentary: A couple of episodes have commentary featuring the creators of the series Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan). There is also commentary from writers Jerome Schwartz and David Goodman and Colin O’Donoghue (Captain Hook).

• “Tales From The Underworld: A Knight With Cruella”: A featurette starring Victoria Smurfit as Cruella and James Marsters (Spike from “Buffy”), lamenting the fate of the underworld.

• “Merida In Storybrooke”: A behind the scenes look at Amy Manson, the actress who plays Merida. Everything Manson goes through to become Merida, and her getting to know and hanging out with Mulan (Jamie Chung) and Ruby (Meghan Ory).
Fun fact: the bow she uses is an exact replica of the one from the animated movie!

• Boopers/Gag Reel: Pretty self-explanatory. I always love a good gag reel, and this one does not disappoint!

• Deleted Scenes: Fun little tid bits that were left out of the final edit.

All in all I thoroughly enjoyed rewatching the “Once Upon A Time” episodes I had all ready seen and discovering all the new things that are included in this 5 disc Blu-Ray set. It’s a must for anyone’s collection.
