I. Love. It! grin

Really, really well done, I thought.

I think I may be Rumpelstiltskin.

I am finding the mysterious stranger a bit wooden.

I ADORE this show! One of my new faves.

I've seen the whole series, trust me the last episode will leave your mouth hanging!!

ALittleFallOfRain There are 21 episodes. grin

I totally love it but don't know anyone else who watches it so glad I found this thread.

Claire from Lost - I knew I recognised her from somewhere. I thought that was such a sad storyline.

And I've only just realised that the actress who plays Emma was also in House.
bit slow on the uptake

we all love it in our house and its a great show for kids and adults to watch together, love all the references to disney too did you that see lookalikey nurse ratchett's hair was done like the clock's in beauty and the beast

We love it too. But Prince Charming, just sort it out. Why is he staying married and having an affair? Not cool, and wrecking everything.
That bit when he had the two valentines day cards and gave snow white the wrong one, well, that would have been it if I was her. However sexy he is. And the card said 'I Woof you'. Nice.

Thanks Lurking, that makes me happy grin.

And Valentine's cards with two different coloured envelopes? Man's an idiot. (Which is a shame, because in the fairytale I really like him).

Well I think this just gets better and better.

LOVED the Rumpelstiltskin/Belle episode - very sweet, funny and sad.

Had to cheat to find out who August W Booth is blush

sPortyBlacksand Wed 18-Jul-12 12:48:03

I am trying to resist googling him ... but i do have some theories. i'm really enjoying it ... the little boy's weird way of speaking is a bit annoying though. I like Jiminy and RC is brilliant as rumplestiltskin.

Charming is really irritating in the modern world isn't he? I think DH has a bit of a thing for the queen / mayor - more so in fairy tale glamour grin

DSs love it too (DS1 clocked the name at the end and sniggers every time <sigh>)

sPortyBlacksand Wed 18-Jul-12 12:52:13

Actually just realised it looks as if i'm talking about the little boy's lisp ... i'm not that horrid. i meant that he stops and starts in odd bits - like he's misread the fulll stops in the script.

CalamityKate Wed 18-Jul-12 18:55:27

Ooh tell me your theories!!

I hate myself for cheating. I'm terrible for skipping to the end of books, too sad

Love Once Upon A Time, missed last nights, will have to catch up later.

Robert Carlyle is such a great actor!

diddl Tue 24-Jul-12 14:25:43

I can´t see how it´ll pan out tbh (no imagination!)

I mean if they get their "happy endings" back-do Snow & PC suddenly age to become Emma´s parents & Henry´s GPs?

Roger Daltry as the Blue Caterpillar "Who are you?"-classic!

CalamityKate Mon 15-Apr-13 14:47:30

Anyone watching series 2??

Still loving it smile

mixedmamameansbusiness Fri 03-May-13 21:23:48

Just watched Sundays episode so thought I would see what MN had to say and couldn't find a thread, so thought it was time for resurrection.

Really not sure where they can go with this series but am still loving it anyway. Captain Hook giving Prince Charming a run for his money.

CalamityKate Sat 04-May-13 00:45:06

Ooh Cap Hook is easy on the eye isn't he?!

mixedmamameansbusiness Sat 04-May-13 06:13:19

I am intrigued each week. Can't wait for Subday. I was devasted when I didn't realise it was on at 8 last week and then further devastation prevailed once I also missed it on channel 5 plus 1.

marciaoverstrand Sat 04-May-13 09:24:17

Loving this series, all the new characters and its a bit darker I think.
No naff blue fairy with inflated breasts so far either, although they were mining for fairy dust so she might make an appearence!

mixedmamameansbusiness Sat 04-May-13 10:27:31

It is definitely darker. They all have an axe to grind.

I really liked Rumpel as representative of the crocodile.

It does feel like they have forgotten about stuff though, but hopefully it will all come together. I feel like two great seasons has to be preferable to 6-8 where they just keep complicating and then tying it up shoddily.

mixedmamameansbusiness Sun 05-May-13 22:02:35

Hmmm, I am thinking Victor Frankenstein is not really a fairy tale character.

Figgygal Sun 05-May-13 22:08:57

Its utter garbage entertainment, makes little sense isn't well acted and the cgi is pretty shocking BUT I cant help but watch it every week grin

mixedmamameansbusiness Sun 05-May-13 22:10:35

I have an obsession with Regina's make up.

At first I thought he was going to be Merlin.

mixedmamameansbusiness Sun 05-May-13 22:11:01

What is cgi?
