|Robert Carlyle as Rumpelstiltskin on ABC show Once Upon A Time|
Obviously, because Robert Carlyle is awesome, he's great at all the non-humor stuff too. Is there anything more fun than a villain that makes you laugh!? I love it.
Last Sunday, we got the tale of Beauty and the Beast with Rumpelstiltskin cast as our monster. The best thing about this take on the story is that should he and Belle actually hook up, there's no bestiality involved. I enjoy twisted but even I have a line...
Anyway. Stories of ladies melting evil hearts is a particular favorite of mine. (Like Caroline and Klaus!) And in this universe, where breaking Rumpelstiltskin's curse would mean The Queen wins is a fun dilemma. It's evil vs. evil.
Of course, one of these evils has the weakness of true love and therefore he wins all the sympathy. This show better not break the promise of fairytale endings because when it finally reaches its series finale, hopefully many years from now, I expect Rumpelstiltskin to have found his courage and his curse to be broken. You hear me, OUAT!? Don't let me down, or else!
