An almost flawless pilot episode, and does a great job introducing the main characters and making you like them and want to root for them.
The Snow White/Prince Charming flashbacks could have been hokey but the acting really made the characters feel like real people. It was interesting to see how they ended up in this world. Emma and Henry have a good dynamic together, and Regina/Evil Queen was a delicious villain in this one.
This episode does a fun job of showing characters from the FairyTale world and then showing their modern counterpart.
