#WatchingSocial: ABC’s Once Upon a Time

Curtains open Sunday, Sept. 29 8/7 c on the third season of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.” The ambitious series concept from some of the creative minds behind “LOST” seemed like a gamble at the time (OK, so did the “LOST” concept!), but getting a third season plus a spinoff series (“Once Upon a Time in Wonderland”) affirms the vision.

Season 3 is a huge reset for the characters – at least the ones who’ve survived – and the show. So, ABC is kicking things off with a one-hour special that revisits history as way of ushering in the newest adventure in Neverland. The special “Once Upon a Time: Journey to Neverland” airs at 7/6 c, just prior to the season opener.

Here’s our #WatchingSocial guide to the new season:

65th_emmy_awards

As of this writing the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony is exactly 30 days away (give or take a few hours). That means that TV-dom is buzzing with predictions, analysis and a fair amount of sour grapes. Aaah, aren’t awards uplifting?

There’s an extra degree of excitement this year on a number of fronts, with streaming content on Netflix getting umpteen nominations, lots of dark horse contenders in major categories, and a number of nominees in their final seasons.

To help navigate the next month, we’ve rounded up a small portfolio of resources you can use to track, participate and even pontificate a bit if you want.
