Show Summary

Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, writers of Lost, have created a modern take on fairy tales with a female lead character, Emma Swan, who has moved to Maine. The show revolves around the adaptation of fairytale characters such as Snow White and Prince Charming who have been brought into the real world with no knowledge of their true identities, due to the Evil Queen, who cast an evil spell on the entire land.

  • Season 5 a no go

    2.0
    Ok, so I have loved the show since the beginning. I loved the characters, the development of them or the consistency like Snow White, but season 5 has gone way off the rails, and it isn't about the lesbian scene. I honestly applaud them for this, however the story line is now riddled with holes and the new characters are just used for marketing techniques. For instance, when they threw in Frozen, the popularity of the characters and the fact that Disney owns ABC is all it took for them to throw them in when the whole first 3-4 seasons was about creating NEW characters based on the fairy tale stories we've heard before, but putting a twist in them. It got better when they added the TRUE ice queen story, the only hook that kept me watching. Now with season 5, I thought it was cool to have an Aurthur storyline, but I'm so sorry Liam Garrigan, you are just not the actor for this job. I shuddered every time I saw you on screen and it wasn't because you were supposed to be evil. Also, when Emma came back as the Dark one, I thought, "OOOO cool, they're going to play with a dark Emma! Maybe because she's supposed to be the savior, she will be the worst villian of them all!" Jennifer Morrison, I'm sorry but please be your own character and don't try and copy the acting of Robert Carlyle as the Dark one. You took your role too seriously and didn't give me the feeling of being evil at all. Even with the twist when Hook turned out to be a second dark one, you forgot you were the dark one as well. Also, WHAT THE HELL EVERYONE! WHY DID YOU TURN ON EMMA WHEN ALL SHE'S EVER DONE FOR YOU IS HELPED YOU WHEN YOU WERE WORSE OFF--- Rumplestiltskin, I'm talking about you! Henry, you of ALL PEOPLE should stick with your mother! You NEVER stopped believing in the good of everyone else, what made you think your MOM would be worse off than PETER PAN! After the episode where Hook turned on Emma (for what?!? Saving him? Honestly, if Emma could retain her personality, you can fight it after all she's done for you), I stopped watching. Now I understand that HADES is in the show, dressed as the Hades from the Disney movie, but he DOESN'T RETAIN THE CHARACTER TRAITS THAT DEFINED HIM! Where's his sense of humor, his sass? Hmmm? If you're going to add new characters, make sure that you have a firm hold on the characters you've ALREADY DEFINED throughout 4 seasons. Please script writers, get it together. I want to watch and enjoy the show again.moreless
  • First couple seasons were good but..

    1.5
    The first couple seasons were great and very exciting but after that the stories just got kind of boring and I'm sorry but what is with the actress who plays Emma, she always sounds like she just sprinted a lap of the set before each scene- she pants so hard it actually distracts me from what she is saying sometimes!

    What juicy red lips you have!



    lol at all those people complaining about a lesbian relationship appearing on this show, and the two characters kissing.



    Funny how these people can think they can bring up their kids believing in a merciful yet merciless god, who loves everyone except the ones he wants you to hate. Yet they cannot live with reality!



    Being gay is not contagious, so dont worry your kids wont grow up to be gay just because they saw 2 women kiss. Or maybe they will and they will be too afraid to tell you cos they know you love your religion more than you love your own child!



    Children do not hate, it is adults who raise their kids to hate.moreless

    I will not watch this show any more because if the lesbian scene. I loved this show before this season. I can't believe that the producer decided to bring that into this show. Unbelievable.
