I'm so happy! I watched seasons 1 to 4 earlier in the year and thought season 5 wouldn't be on for ages . But it is grin

Yay! I thought we wouldn't have it for ages either but looks like it comes on Netflix on Wednesdays after it shows in the US on the Sunday. Glad my Captain Hook fix is readily available grin

SheldonsSpotOnTheCouch Mon 05-Oct-15 18:30:13

Oh yes. He's there and as lovely as ever grin I think it's going to be interesting with Emma as The Dark One.

How interesting - this must be a departure for Netflix. In the UK at least they don't tend to show programmes as they're being broadcast (except obviously when it's their own content a la Orange, House of Cards). I wonder if we'll see more of this for US shows that don't have a broadcast deal with one of the TV companies, I certainly hope so. Although it does mean UK audiences will have to get used to the weird scheduling of US shows and the bizarre three month gap in midwinter for the midseason break.

That midseason break is annoying. I'd like to save all the episodes up so that i can binge-watch them but it's hard when i know they're there!

I like to watch them back to back so this one episode a week is killing me.

Just to give you a flavour of it, last year OUAT went off air on 14th Dec and returned on 1st March!

They showed the last series in real time too. Love this show! Love hook and Emma together

SheldonsSpotOnTheCouch Thu 08-Oct-15 22:35:07

I love Hook and Emma too. And I adore Mary Margaret. I love the fact that she's had a baby and she's regularly seen going about her every day business whilst holding the baby. Unlike so many programmes where babies are born for the drama but are then rarely seen or mentioned again.

She may be a mother but she can still kick ass

SheldonsSpotOnTheCouch Thu 08-Oct-15 22:36:04

Forgot my grin

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Fri 09-Oct-15 02:50:09

Also love Sean McGuire as Robin Hood as remember my teenage crush on him when he was in eastenders

SheldonsSpotOnTheCouch Fri 09-Oct-15 07:33:39

Yes, I'm liking him too. Though I feel like shouting at the tv whenever Regina kisses him "Stop! He's 12 years old!" grin

I loved Will Scarlet too. I like that actor in anything he does.

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Fri 09-Oct-15 09:04:06

Michael socha? I love him hard

SheldonsSpotOnTheCouch Fri 09-Oct-15 09:48:58

That's him. Love him.

Can I just take a moment to say that I HATE Emma as the Dark One. Her acting is terrible. And her hair looks ridiculous - someone's gone overboard with the talc.

I don't know if it's because between watching Season 4 and 5 we have binge watched House, so I'm used to her as the totally different prissy character in that, but I just think she's awful. My Guinea pig could be a more convincing bad guy.

That aside, much lusting over Hook and Robin Hood has re-commenced. Sean Maguire was my first crush also... I had 2 teddy bears, one called Sean and one called Maguire! Tragic.

I am very excited for the new turn this season is taking. It is really turning the show on its head. But is anyone else sick of them loosing their memory? I know it is a plot devise so they can have flash backs but it's just gotten ridiculous!

Missanneshirley Mon 12-Oct-15 21:42:55

I will confess I've only discovered this show exists because of jamie dornan! Just wanted to ask - do I need to watch series 1-4 or will I be able to make sense of series 5?

TheWildRumpyPumpus Tue 13-Oct-15 08:13:43

I would revel in the enjoyment of seasons 1-4!

There's a lot of back-story for sure. You could probably try and watch it as a standalone season but it won't be anywhere near as much fun.

INeedSomeHelp Tue 13-Oct-15 08:17:09

I got Netflix especially because this is on it. I rewatched series 1 & 2 because it seemed like such a long time since they were on UK tv. I'm now about half way through series 3 and must admit I'm getting a bit bored of the Pan storyline. I haven't watched an episode for a few days because of that but I will get back into it I'm sure.

AliceDoesntLiveHereAnymore Tue 13-Oct-15 08:17:12

Just discovered this show on Netflix, so only on Season 2. Enjoying it immensely so far.

KaraokeQueenOfTheNorth Tue 13-Oct-15 08:23:42

I lost interest in the Pan storyline too. Stick with it, it gets better again!

I'm so happy it's back smile

WhyDoesGastonBark Thu 15-Oct-15 14:28:49

Thoughts on episode 3

SheldonsSpotOnTheCouch Fri 16-Oct-15 18:50:06

Another one here who got bored of the Pan storyline. It's worth sticking with though because it really does get better.

To the poster who asked about going straight in to season 5 I would say no. I think it would ne difficult to get onto without all the back story. Plus the early seasons are really enjoyable to watch.

INeedSomeHelp Sat 17-Oct-15 11:42:40

Yay Pan is dead! Have watched a few more episodes whilst doing the ironing and totally back into it.

yumyumpoppycat Tue 05-Jan-16 11:06:47

Just watched season 5 ep 11 and don't want to spoil it but am a bit miffed! Also cross that I have miss timed netflix resubscription as the rest of the season isn't on until March, may have watched 10 episodes in about 3 days I guess this means I need to resubscribe mid May. Dp told me Netflix prices are going up so we should rejoin now as a big new series is planned -anyone know if that's true?
