Why do I still watch this show? Hook. That's literally the only reason. The rest is just ugh.

My absolute favorite thing about Once Upon a Time is how well the writers have mixed all the common fairy tales together, and after all these seasons I'm having loads of fun discussing all the, quite complicated, relationships between characters from completely different stories. The best major connection that the writers have made in my opinion is making Rumpelstiltskin the beast in beauty and the beast!

Also I'm a big fan of Jennifer Morrison from House and I love how Emma and Henry's characters are braided into the plot. The series have some great love stories (Hook and Emma being my favorite one), but this is probably the part about the show that I'm not completely happy with, I would ultimately want a little bit more from the love stories.

The series focuses a lot on good and evil, this is another thing that I find a little bit boring, I prefer the grey areas... How ever lately some evil people have shown good sides and the other way around, which is good.

I have quite a few characters that I like (but also some that i dislike), I can't really choose one or two though so I'm just going to say a few that I like and a few that a dislike. The characters that I like are; Hook, Belle, Rumpelstiltskin, Regina/The Evil Queen (especially with Robin Hood), Neal (R.I.P), Anna and Jefferson/The Mad Hatter. And the, especially right now, I'm not a big fan of Snow White and Prince Charming.

An entertaining show about old fashioned fairy tale characters, with a modern twist. Highly addictive.

I love the way that this show takes your typical fairy tales and puts a spin on them all so that they connect and intertwine. I'm always wondering what will happen next. The special effects are kind of bad in certain fairy tale scenes, but other than that it's a really compelling show!

So at first I was skeptical about this season but after watching the last two episodes, my rating went up from a 3 to a 4 stars. I am really excited to see what happens with Emma and the rest of the lovely characters! This is a great show and I hope it gets exciting again in the fall!!!!!

This show only gets better with time. I wasn't a huge fan of them taking on Frozen so quickly, but it ended up not being as hokey and ridiculous as I imagined. Now if we could just delve more into serious character development for Emma, all would be well. She's come a long way, but I feel like they take steps forward and then go backward again. Also I miss Henry. I know he's there, but he used to be so much more central to the story than he is now.
