This is a wonderful show, don't miss it! Good script, good actors,.....is been a long time that I enjoyed a show like that. I love the intrepid Snow white and the amazing and scary evil queen, not to mention the talented kid that plays Henry..
It's more than imagination that keeps me coming back, it's the heart of the story! I am elderly and like to be entertained out of 'my world', for it is too scary out there! So the fantasy of imagination, even tho' scary, entertains and gives far more to those who are afraid to go to a store at night. Keep 'em coming, you folks are doing a lot of good in my world.
Love the show!!!! that everyone can have a happy ending and love is the greatest magic of all is needed more in this world. love the twist of the expanded fairy tale stories keep it up just wish you hadn't killed off the sheriff
I love the creativity of the writers in this show. The acting, story lines, costumes and sets from two different worlds, action, and character development keep me coming back for every episode. There is so much potential for this show, it could go on forever and I hope it does.
... there was a series which was a very good series about fairy tales. I have to say that I really love this series. From the beggining this series has caught my eye, not only because it has a really cool story, but it also has an awesome cast.
It was interesting to see a series in which all of the characters from the fairy tales would not know about their true identity. But, I'm afraid that in time we will get fed up of the story because once they find out that the Mayor is actually Queen Grimhilde from Snow White, there will probably not be much more to find out about (I hope I'm wrong about it). 10 out of 10.
Loving it so much, It's interesting and unique. Putting all the characters together makes it better and showing how they all seem to fit together helps make the show. Rumpelstiltskin/Mr.Gold is the most fascinating character on TV for a long time. Only thing else I could ask is to have more of him!
Has even made me get the book of Old Fairy Tales...(Grimm Tales)
I love this show! I am totally hooked on it! Granted I have to watch it on the ABC player the next day, I don't have cable right now. But the premise of this show is wonderful and as they say it's had me since hello!
I absolutely enjoy watching the show. The show puts a good twist on the childhood fairy tales. I didn't think I'd be hooked to the show, but I am. After watching 7 episodes, by far Robert Carlyle personifies "Ruplestiltskin/Mr. Gold" really, really well.
i have been waiting for a show to be mysterious and with imagination i love this show the writer of thiis show is very creative not in a mill yrs i would though of a good show very creative its the best show every on tv now in these days vampire diaries my ass it not even good but this show is different this show rules
As a southern boy who longed for creativity and self acceptance, I find this show uplifting and visually stunning. As a child i lived in my own fairytale utopia and was amazed to learn of Once upon a time. Midway through season 1 we already see an array of familial characters and scenarios. Some may think that this show is a replica of already loved classics but i find it appealing to watch them inner twine beloved tales with modern entertainment factors. From a wide array of new actors (who all fit their roles to a T) , to the innovative re-tellings of worldwide stories I have to say that this show is destined to reach new plateaus in television, PROVIDED they can garner a wide enough fan base to maintain prime television real estate. I LOVE IT.
I had been waiting on a show to hook me ever since Smallville left and Supernatural became slow and crap (though it's picking up). I checked out Grimm and this show and they aren't even in the same league. I thought this would be just as bad as Grimm, but instantly I was in love with this show, it's concept and it's characters.
It is so good in fact that I fully expect it to be cancelled by the idiotic execs that seem to frown on original concepts and a fan base.
Wow, this show is so creative. I am amazed by the characters and there double roles. They are doing a great job with making a show so unrealistic feal so realistic. You don't understand that Emma doesn't believe the fairy tales are real, once you notice that you DO believe. Sometimes I remember that the writers might end this tv show with an episode that reveales how Henry made everything up and it was ALL his imagination. But you feel that that is not possible, because the people live the stories and they remember things from their other live.
See how easily you get pulled into this fairy tale? Love everything about it. It only gets a 9 because the special effects make me laugh a lot (I don't mind it but it is the only thing that puls me out of the show and gets me back to sanity, so maybe it is better it stays this way!).
I'd recommend it to anyone. I also think the actors are doing a great job, especialy rumpelstilskin, wow!
What an excellent show. It's been a long time since I have actually been involved in a show and this is the one. The visual effects are stunning; the acting is believable; and the story line is engrossing. All in all, it is a hit.
I can honestly say I haven't "felt" this way towards a TV show since Lost. After it was obvious Lost was a huge cult hit, many shows tried to jump on the bandwagon. Invasion, The Nine, Flash Forward, The Event, just to name a few. While these shows weren't necessarily bad on their own, they just felt "hollow" compared to Lost. Like they were either lacking something, or trying too hard to emulate Lost.
Then along comes Once Upon A Time, and I think it hit the nail square on the head. Like Lost, this show is at its heart a character drama more than anything else. Add in some phenomenal story telling, a dash of mystery, a pinch of action, and sprinkle with some fantasy/sci-fi..... and you have the recipe for another winner.
Thank you mister Horowitz. I just finally got over Lost, now I have to go through this crap again. ;)
I am forever a LOST fan..and was looking forward to this new show..what a letdown it is. LOST had a variety of characters, with distinct personalities..Sawyer, Jack, Syeed (sic), Kate..thie new show does not have one compelling, interesting character..this show SUCKS!! Bad & overacted..Rumple is a joke with the bad teeth and green skin..so over the top, he doesn;t evoke fear, just a wtf, next please..bad acting, bad scripts, the only good actors are...the witch, and the little kid..everyone else is flat, and boring..I am forcing myself to watch it in the hopes that something clever and interesting will happen..which it DOESN'T..this show will lose ratings and probalby not come back a year from now.too bad, coulda been terrific, instead it ifalls as short as the 7 dwarfs.
A quality show. Good characters with a decent variety, not flat in the slightest and easily on a par with lost. Obviously they are based on the fairytale characters though it appears some people have missed that point,thick people to say the least.
A quality show withgood characters based on the original fairytale characters with a decent variety across the board. Contrary to a previous comment theynot flat in the slightest and easily on a par with lost.The format of the episodes is also similar to that of lost with flashbacks to before the curse but leaving enough to keep you wondering just what did happen at the time the curse was cast. Judging from the comments and ratings for each episode there is a decent following for the show with a lot of positive feedback and only a few morons that are here to berate it because they lack intelligence and imagination. Clear requirements when watching a show based on the fairytale world. To attack a show for depicting Rumplestiltskin as a green skinned monstrosity with bad teeth is proof that a lack of imagination lies beneath the comments author'sshallow surface. Rumplestiltskin is depicted as he was in the fairytale books of past and present generations to good effect. Robert Carlyle hitting the part quite well.
In short, this is a show for imaginative and intelligent people as it has been quite cleverly written, to be fair. It is good enough to maintain interest and leaves you wanting more each episode. If you lack imagination, it is not for you.
When I first heard the main plot, It was very interesting... when I started watching the 1st episode, I immidately thought about how high quality this production really is!! and after watching the entire 1st episode I really have to say: I AM IN LOVE!!!

Something I can come home to and be impressed every week. Thanks. Ever since I watched the shows first episode i loved it. I like my fairy tales. All of them. They all are my favorite. And this is the new LOST. That show a was great.
Love how the charachters are introduce as normal everyday people in the beginning and then throughout the show their fairytale identity is played out. Hope this show can stand the test of time and remain on tv for at least a few seasons. It takes me back to my youth and gives me & my children a positive conversation to discuss.
This show is just great. It has all the really sweet characteristics of a fairytale with the added bonus of a salty real-life touch. It is not 100% Disney and I think that really makes it work for young and old. Besides, as the episodes go by, one can really tell that all characters are deep: even the evil witch has some sort of feelings.
When I saw the first episode it caught my attention. I knew this would be a good tale to tell and I knew that I have to know if 'Storybrooke' will ever be saved from that wretched Queen. So I keep watching it and it is taking on the same aspects as 'Lost' which is by far the best show ever. The flashbacks of there lives before the curse; the same camera techniques it is all amazing. The story takes on a life on its own, its almost makes me want to believe there once was Sleeping Beauty and Snow White. Lets see where this series takes us.
i never thought i'd get as hooked to it as i did, don't get me wrong im a big fairytale fan, seriously! Snow white, Cinderella, little red ridding hood... love'em all. its just when you hear that they are going to make a show like that you always think its going to be.. ummm... well -for lack of a better term- boring, but this show is anything but.
