With the premiere of Lost celebrating its 10th anniversary, it’s a stark reminder that no show has been able to truly capture that same frenzied passion. From the memorable characters to its unique style of storytelling, Lost gave TV viewers something fresh and interesting to watch week after week. And in its absence, Once Upon a Time is the best option to fill the void left by flight 815.
We know that Disney didn’t exactly invent the legend of Mulan or Snow White; they just turned them into icon cartoon characters, which were then printed them on a billion little girl’s favorite t-shirts. On the other hand, we also know that we’ve given some serious thought to who would play the Disney princesses in a live-action situation, so let us enjoy it while that actually happens, okay? Alright.

Monday: Martha Stewart’s Haunted House
8 p.m. Hallmark
Martha doesn’t do anything halfway, but Halloween has always been an excuse for her to go extra craft-crazy. Tonight, she’s teaching you how to create a haunted house and has Justin Long, one of the least-scary actors on the planet, do something to spook small children. My glue gun is ready!
Tuesday: Zombies: A Living History
8 p.m., History Channel
Lots of historical experts scare the sh– out of me with their talk of how the zombie virus could actually come to be, while actors moan and shuffle in the background. Watch the trailer here and you’ll see why I may stay indoors forever.
Wednesday: American Horror Story
10 p.m., FX
