Amazing! The cgi can be iffy and the show oozes with cheese, but to be honest, I could pretty much live off cheddar so... Stunning actors that are freakishly well cast, especially Regina. Unfortunately Henry is a very much not good actor, but on the other end of the scale, Peter Pan was so talented that I'm willing to give the show a little leeway.

You like fairytales? Good! Because you're in the right place! Other than the annoying tangent the plot always goes off to, and all those (almost) irrelevant characters and their backstory, this show is pretty good.

I was not to fond of the whole never-land thing. I get how it weaves in. Some of the characters I can understand. I tend to binge watch it once the season is over. The first two seasons I really hung on to it but as it moves on It is starting to get redundant. I also think that including OZ was a bit of a bad idea.

The first season so far is very enticing. Quite a twist to the normal fairy tales that we all know. Though the actors they've chosen to portray this characters is not at all what I've imagined them to be, I appreciate the fact that they all embrace the character as well as they can.

The show started off so well and had so much potential. The first couple of seasons were interesting and original. But then, it seems that the show writers just ran out of the creative potion and fairy tale characters from everywhere just collided and became such a huge mess! To be fair, I waited 6 seasons before giving up on it!

I can remember programs in my growing up years (and that is a ways back) ... when it came to the good guys, and the ones they associated with, they always came out on top ... and the villains always failed. After so much of that, a body was mentally prepared for the outcome ... no matter how the story went, or how much danger they got into, you kinda already knew the outcome.
Without adding in a stronger element of reality --- the chance that all your heroes might not come out on top --- programs (and books) would be overly predictable and therefore ... "boring".
Yes, it's difficult to handle the loss of a character you love, or handle their grieving when they're handling an upsetting situation. But, that's the point of writing the story line that way ... to grab you by your innards and twist in order to get these emotional reactions out of you.
Congratulations, writers (and actors) of OUAT ... it appears you have succeeded.
