  • The Music is Way too Loud

    It's so annoying that the music is SO loud that you can't hear what everyone is saying. I hate it so much! Y'all should get your act together because it's not enjoyable if you have no idea what's going on because you can't hear it.
  • Why is there a freakin GAY scene

    I just wanna know why did the producer put a lesbian couple on once upon a time. Like Dorthy and Little red riding hood a couple that isn't even a good twist. That scene just ruined the whole show for me. I will never look at the show the same way I had before. Like you had snow white and mulan support that. Like I know snow white is all for love but u just had to make her support that sh**. The producer needs to find a way to split this up and never have a gay or lesbian couple on here ever again. Like the show was just fine without a gay couple. What's next snow white falls in love with Regina. That would suck don't do it but it would suck. But I really like your show just not the gay part. oh question... was riding hood and dorthy gay in real life? or is the producer gay? I have nothing against gays it is just that ruined the show.
  • you people are hilarious

    lol@the hysterical "parents" pretending to be outraged. But they have NO PROBLEM with straight couples kissing such a silly mindset. I hope your kids haven't seen the black people in the show either lest they try to emulate them! Also major lol @ people saying this is a family show. Gay people have families too you silly geese, my god you guys are whacked out of your skull. Thanks for the laughs tho!!
  • Wrong platform

    I'm a huge Disney fan and grew up learning and loving many storybook characters.

    I just watched the lesbian scene with Red Riding Hood and Dorothy.. What the hell? I was upset when you made Mulan a lesbian as well. Really!? I don't have a problem with liberal shows having gay/lesbian characters such as Mitch and Cam in Modern Family but changing, perverting and corrupting age old beloved storybook characters? Wrong platform for this agenda push. It makes me sick and has greatly lessened my liking of the show.
  • Please dont cancel this show

    I really dont want this show to be canceled at all. Its my favorite TV show and if its done I'll be really upset. It seems all the shows I do like they get canceled. I love once upon a time and I even buy the seasons and watch them again please dont cancel the show
  • I really love the show....

    I loved the show since the beginning and started to watch in on Netflix my favourite was seasons one, two and three. For some reason after that I started to like it less, for one when ever I watch the show it looks like there is way more contrast making it look darker and you can hear every single breath the character is making. one thing I like is how the evil queen is back because I don't seem to see the evil queen anymore now. I want the show to be like it use to be, I mean snow and charming don't really go on any adventures anymore and I would also be cool to see hook and Emma to go on an adventure together like they did in season 3 when they went back to the enchanted forest, I liked that. And being gay isn't something you should stop watching the show because of, i mean your kids are going to see two genders kiss sometime in their life so why not now when there young. Trust me it won't hurt them!
  • Greatest Show Ever!

    I think that "Once Upon A Time" is a Fantastic and Wonderful show I just can't stop watching it. My favorite characters are: Regina Mills/The Evil Queen, Emma Swan, Henry Mills, Zelena/The Wicked Witch Of The West,and Ingrid/The Snow Queen. I hope the adventures continue with another season after S6 and I hope they these characters in the show from my favorite movies:

    Little Nemo: Adventures In Slumberland

    The Magic Voyage

    The Princess and the Goblin

    The Secret Of Nimh

    The Dancing Princesses

    Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princessess

    The NeverEnding Story

    James and The Giant Peach

    Babes In Toyland

    Little Women

    (Don't Bad Mouth my Review)

  • Disappointed

    I was a big fan. I saw all except one and I couldn't believe when I heard about the gay couple in episode 18 on seasson 5. Today I found it. Now it's oficial, it was the END for us. I did the only thing I can do - STOP WATCH IT and change for another serie. I love my "on / off" button on my TV. If you want us to watch your series, give us GOD STUFF. And this Is the main reason why in our family we see first to see if it is good for our little ones. And "once upon a time" is no longer good for them.
  • Season 5 a no go

    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.
  • First couple seasons were good but..

    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!

  • 're episode 21 season 5

    This episode is too fuckin unbelievable why the fuck dose hook get to cum back and ALL the other good guys whom av died cannot. I stopped watching it. Hate Emma n hook togather she left n go to fucking hell. Why the fuckin producers never jus let the fucker moved on man :(
  • Oh Dorothy

    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.
  • Once upon a time

    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.
  • Fills me with happiness

    Once upon a time is such a sweet loving show. When I see hook and emma together I feel like anything possible! On the last episode when they split I started balling becuse that's how much this show means to me! Once upon a time is not just a show for me, it let's out all of my emotions. Sad, Happy, angry. It's a perfect show and defenalty my favorite!
  • Stopped watching after season 2

    Why not create a whole new character and make them gay ? they created a whole new character in Emma , why not do the same with a gay character ? it could have worked very well . why always "turn" a straight character gay ? Mulan is not gay , she's a tomboy that's all . this show was ruined from season 2 . of course gay storyline are not the main reason for that ( bad acting, bad writing , bad costumes , bad/too much casting ) but it's one of the reasons, for sure .

    ps : to those complaining , you should have known better than to trust this show, how could you have missed the signs in season 2 ? (mulan)
  • So Long Once Upon A Time

    I'm pretty bummed about ABC's decision to air this episode of Once Upon A Time which attempts to idealize a romantic storyline and make-out session between two female characters, especially when this time slot and show are deliberately targeted to families. Some folks say that it's ridiculous to protest, equating any objections with an attempt to maintain an irrational perspective that homosexuals do not exist. This characterization is simply false. The outcry has nothing to do with denial of reality--everyone knows that homosexuals exist, infidelity exists, polygamists exist, swingers exist, etc. Additionally, regardless of anyone's behavior, everyone has value and deserves compassion. The thing is, morality exists, too. The behavior that you choose matters to both you and everyone around you that you influence and impact. Just because something exists doesn't mean that it should be idealized or deemed appropriate entertainment material for families.

    Ideals matter, and they're critical to our society and the kids that we raise in that society. The ideal situation for kids is to be raised by both a mother and father who care for them and care for each other over a lifelong commitment. The ideal situation for an adult is to be married to a spouse of the opposite gender who complements their perspectives and impulses and teaches them about the opposite gender in ways that their own gender and other acquaintances cannot.

    It all comes down to one very basic and important idea. Men and women are both emotionally and physically different from each other. Hormones are different, brain structure is different, and instincts are different. You don't have to be married very long before this becomes surprisingly apparent in ways that you never realized before. This isn't to say that one gender is superior to the other; it's to say that there are significant differences that should be valued and appreciated, rather than demonized or nonsensically denied. Understanding and appreciating these differences is crucial to understanding and appreciating what it really means to be a "good man" or to be a "good woman," and it has a major impact on our ability to raise the next generation of good men and good women.

    Caring about and valuing homosexuals doesn't require idealization of their behaviors, and people of all walks of life should be able to recognize the importance of upholding and fighting for unbroken homes with mothers and fathers who uphold their vows and teach their kids to be good men and women.

    I've had fun watching Once Upon a Time for the past several years, and it's really one of only two shows that I've consistently watched. Unfortunately, I won't be watching any future episodes, as I think their stated goal to normalize homosexual relationships is incredibly destructive to everyone's interests.
  • Another show ruined by producers pushing an agenda

    I have loved Once Upon a Time, especially the first three seasons. I love how Emma came to believe, I love Snow and Prince Charming, and I love Emma and Hook's romance. I love the idea of true love.

    Unfortunately, the writers turned true love into true lesbian lust, and I find that revolting. A VERY small percentage of people are homosexual, and those of us who have normal (yes, I said normal) passions do not want to watch the minority engaging in homosexual relationships.

    There just was no need at all to introduce that into a show about fairy tales, a show that many families watch together. As they can see from reading the comments here and, I'm sure, the comments sent to ABC, people are not as stupid as they think. The writers can't trick us into thinking that this is normal behavior just by showing it on television.

    It would be great if movie and TV writers and producers wrote for the majority and kept the content clean (including what they show for heterosexual relationships).

    I am very disappointed very angered by how the writers are portraying Disney by turning it into a LBGT characters with having a passionate kiss to boot was uncalled for.

    This was a family show in my home and watched it every week but now NO way.

    I agreed with many of the posts out here.

    Wrong move to do with the show..
  • chill the f#ck out already

    Ok i am so friggin tired of these butthurt ppl complaining about the gay ppl exist. get the frick over it. also get over the fact that gay ppl arent friggin evil. also get over the fact that once upon a time is a really great show that is pretty damn original in and of its self! i mean how cool is it that the evil queen is sister to Zelena. or that Rumpelstiltskin is the crocodile that cuts if Hooks hand. how awesome is it that the daughter of Prince Charming and Snow White (Emma) hooks up with Hook? (no pun a bit)

    Yea this show may need a couple of tweaks but in general is a awesome and fun show. Honestly there was one kiss between 2 females and everyones getting mean im sure we all passed this unit in health class guys why is it such a big deal???

    the point is ya'll need to get ur head out of your asses and move the hell on already. the producers most likely arent about to show another episode like that again. so get of your damn high horse, sit your ass on your couch next sunday, and watch the fucking show.

    Thank you

    Spoken from a catholic conservative who is freaking done with everyone bullshit on this matter
  • So disappointed!

    This is a family show. Our family hasn't missed an episode and we've been watching since day one. So disgusted. We will stop watching. Hope this show is canceled due to this stupid move about lesbians. Stated from another review, this saves space on my DVR. I hope ratings go down and show goes off. Would give the show a 10 until last week, now it's a zero but the rating on this doesn't have a zero so 1 it is.

    You have Red Riding Hood and Dorothy making out in front of my little children?! I trusted you with my kids viewing Disney!! You disgust me, I have no desire to have anything else to do with Disney. You broke my trust and for what, to be PC?!?

    BTW the 2 rating was given because the site wouldn't accept a 1 or 0, yeah that's JACKED UP!
  • The "Magic" is gone....

    Family enjoyed the show but, now, due to the Lesbian kiss we will not watch it again. I believe it is up to the Parents to pick the correct moment to discuss such matters as this with their Children. This should not have been Thrust upon our Children like it was....
  • Hated you went there

    This has been the best show for my daughter and I to watch until last Sunday. Did they really have to have a lesbian kiss? A passionate one at that. I don't think Emma and Hook have kissed that passionately. Also, the characters barely knew each other. Really? You lost the respect and rating of this member.
  • Couldn't be more disappointed...

    For years now, our family has enjoyed special time together watching this show - but after this week's episode, we will never watch it again! As a mom, I cannot express how disappointed we are. To the producers of what was our favorite show - bad move!
  • Once Upon a Time. Waste of Film!

    I wholeheartedly agree with so many of the previous reviewers' comments. What a shame that Once Upon a Time's writers wrote that SMUT into such a fun show. It was one of the few left that I could watch with my young daughter, as so much of today's TV is inappropriate for young girls. It seems nowadays every show is ruined by some sort of sex scene, and more and more, as of late, gay scenes.

    Sexuality is a choice. I have no problem with people making their own choice; however, I have a HUGE problem when it is thrown in my face through a family television show. During that episode, it seemed as though it was heading in that direction, but I was certain it would not because of the type of show it is. I was so WRONG, as are the writers and ABC for allowing it to air!

    I turned off the TV as soon as I knew Little Red Riding Hood would be romantically kissing Dorothy. It's appalling to me. Needless to say, we will never go back to watching it. I'd like to see it cancelled. I rate it a big ZERO.
  • I had disappeared into the land of fairy dust and illusion until "The Kiss". Now I'm the illusion because I am gone!

    ABC and the Once Upon A Time Producers and powers to be. YOU MESSED UP! There are far more of us middle Americans out there than the left wing agenda driven that you cater to and we are fast approaching a time where it is our time! To say we are mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore is going a bit far as we, unlike the self proclaimed tolerant liberals, are actually more tolerant of your antics but we have our limits and these limits are being severely tested!

    The Liberal definition of tolerance is when their liberal agenda is agreed to. That being the definition we middle of the road Americans are fixing to become VERY LIBERAL about our agenda! We are fixing to turn you off and walk away. Let's see if the few who follow the agenda that you spew can support the shows that you produce.

    Think about it!

    Excerpt from my blog posted this morning...

    "Is it too much to ask not to have a lifestyle that is somewhat revolting shoved down our throat in a television show and movies? Especially during family viewing time? As I said I am not judgmental about someone's personal habits and preferences but I am very judgmental about others forcing them on me or my family.

    Just think of the time that may be coming when you are settling down to read your child a story about Little Red Riding Hood and your child asks ... when does she meet Dorothy? Or worse the wolf! Is bestiality next?

    People may consider that a stretch but not too many years ago if someone told you that there would be a TV show on prime family viewing time that would show Dorothy and Little Red Riding Hood making out would we have also claimed it as preposterous to think of such a thing?

    Where do we draw the line on the immorality being forced upon traditional America and into our homes as family entertainment? Where is the line that is finally not crossed and is there one? Fearing that the depravity being forced upon us has no bounds we need to stand up and set them! Until we say enough is enough, ENOUGH WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH!

    I care about our country and I truly fear the direction we are taking and even more I fear the laxity and seeming devotion of many or even most to do nothing about it.

    I am not one of those, are you?"

    Turn Once Upon A Time off. Turn all shows that do not represent our values off. Vote with your remote! Then let them know you did it!

    What saddens me is that many will agree but few will do anything about it. What I call the devotion to doing nothing.

    The devotion to doing nothing accomplishes that very goal! Complain and do something about it or ... Don't complain!

    Thank you!
  • Another one bites the dust!!!

    Glad to free up some of the space on my DVR! Thanks Once Upon a TIme!
  • Once Upon a Time this was a fun family show...

    This show has been one of our family's favorites because we all know all the fairy tales and it's been fun to see the spin on the characters as "real people". So we are sitting watching this episode as a family and I am seriously shocked and offended to have this lesbian storybrought into my home for family viewing.

    Not just a kiss, but the scene was turned into a makeout session. Disney used to be the epitome of family viewing. It is sad to see that the family that built this company has been totally kicked to the curb and disregarded in order to advance the minority agenda.

    As far as family friendliness goes, Once has lost its magic for this viewer. I am giving a rating of 1 only because there are no negative numbers
  • what were you thinking

    I am absolutely disgusted with the lesbian story line you ran April 18th!!! Red Riding Hood and Dorothy from Oz? Really????? I have been upset with all this underworld this season anyway - but now I know this is not a show I wish to continue to watch! You all are so off track an alien vessel cannot find you!!!!
  • What were you thinking?

    Apparently the writers of this show have sacrificed its ratings to push their ideology. I get that this is a fantasy show, but the writers are obviously living in their own fantasy world where it makes sense to take what is as close to a family show as you get these days, and pervert it with such a blatant attempt at normalizing same sex relationships.... In no way, shape, or form is it normal, and it never will be, no matter how many marches there are. PLEASE! Normal doesn't require convincing - it just is. I accept that people are this way, however it is disgusting for people who aren't, to have to watch it. My children still think is gross to see a man and woman kissing, how am I going to explain to them why 2 women are making out with a crowd of people clapping for them like a circus side show act (yuk!).

    Why do the small quantity of people that define themselves by their sexual habits get to dictate to the rest of the world, that what they do with each other is somehow proper and OK, and that we, should somehow be OK with them flaunting their sexual acts in front of our children! NO!!!!

    Ask yourself this, was there any other couple in the entire history of this program that portrayed such a long and passionate kiss.


    Shame on you ABC for allowing this to happen!

    You've lost another long time loyal viewer!
