I'm oddly taken by this show. Watching on Hulu. I'm developing a crush on Prince Charming!

    LOVE IT! My husband too, and rarely gets hooked on a show. We haven't seen this week's yet but it is on DVR and hopefully tonight.

    I can't express how awesome it is, but I think you had to start watching at least by episode 2 to have any idea of what is going on. Did you see the first 2 episodes?

    I agree, the first episode is key.

    I have tried watching it and I'll admit it's almost 100% because I'm obsessed with Snow White's makeup. Seriously, anyone get me a product run down for that? I can't get into the actual show and I think I'm done.

    My dh and kids and I are glued when once upon a time is on. I love the plot & this is a great role for "cameron" from house. I expected something cheesy but whoa. its like all my children meets all the disney masterpieces. Its a keeper.

    Add me to the list. I didn't think it would be something I'd like. I watched the first episode one night, out of boredom and it got me hooked!
    Think I'm 3b-ish...maybe some 3a there too...plus wavy roots....I'm just a mixed bag!:D CG since August '05

    I'm watching it as well. It's totally a guilty pleasure for me. I was afraid it was going to be like "The Charmings" from the 80's..remember that?

    Still, I don't get why they had to dress the blue fairy like an extra from "My big fat gypsy wedding" :sign6:

    The whole Snow White look? Or a specific aspect of it?

    I so remember The Charmings! I didn't think anyone else did.
  • I just started watching it. I'm three episodes in and I really like it so far.

    I was hooked on the first three episodes, and then missed, and my computer has been freezing like crazy when watching things lately. I'll have to watch it on On Demand.

    I love Faerie Tales! This show put me in the mood to watch my old Faerie Tale Theatres.

    I also love Ginnifer Goodwin...I think she's beautiful.

    We finally saw this weeks episode, when it was over hubby said "I don't want it to be over". That is so unlike him.

    ETA: Don't you guys love how they mix in pretty much all the fairy tale characters? King Midas was a hoot.

    Also, cailin, the blue fairy looks exactly like Cinderallas fairy godmother did in my childhood Golden Book. I love that.

    HA! Really? I love the thought that a character in a Golden Book had a giant rack popping out of her corset.

    I feel like it's a wink to adults watching.

    I admit I didn't notice her chest. I just remember the outfit and hat. I was really excited when I saw her because I immediately thought of my book.

    Interesting. I also liked Jennifer Morrison on House.

    Love this show! I really like fairy tales. I was super excited for this show and "Grimm" another show is about fairy tales (However I watched Grimm and didn't really like it).
  • ShrekLoverShrekLover Posts: 2,551Registered Users
    Yeah, Grimm is completely different. It's ok, but certainly not the same caliber as Once Upon A Time.

    I love it. I didn't think I'd be as into it as I am. Guess I'm a sucker for a good fairytale!

    anyone else get the feeling that "Rumplestiltsken" is the only one who knows what's going on - sort of????

    I read somewhere that the queen knows what is going on too but she is just hiding it better then him. I love this show and Grimm. They are both completely different but both completely crazy!

    Add me to the obsessed list!! I think it is so clever how the names of the characters relate to their "fairy tale" person - like how Cinderella is Ashley and Red Riding Hood is Ruby! I think Rumplestilkstin is AMAZING and one of the best actors on tv...why haven't I seen him before?

    I can't decide if the Mayor knows who/what everyone is or not.

    Any guesses as to what Snow White did to the Queen?

    I thought the queen was Snow's stepmother. Sidebar... were you guys not shocked when you found out the "kid" and the father the queen killed in fantasy land had the same name!

    Robert Carlyle was in "Full Monty," which is great, if you haven't seen it. He's fantastically creepy in this!

    I think the Mayor has to know what is going on, the way she pulled David's "wife" out of nowhere like that. AND dropped the mirror shard down the big hole in the ground.

    Im confused as to how the mayor could possibly not know. But yeah Im so curious about what SW might've done.

    How does the name ashley relate to cinderella? Cynthia/Cindy, I could see...

    And anyone know who henry's father could be?

    How is SW that lady's mom?! They're the same age-ish...

    I get the impression the people in the town don't age, but Emma did.

    Ashley = ashes = cinders = Cinderella is my best guess.
