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.

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.

Season 1 was so great that this was almost one of my favourite shows on television. Through the years and seasons though, it's grown a little dry. I tend to watch this show only when an entire season becomes available that I binge it in a few days. I never really feel like it's left me wanting more and that I have to watch it week to week. It's good, but not that good. I love the characters they bring in but the story lines are kind of boring. I wouldn't mind if season 6 was it's last. They can't just keep stretching stories and creating new ones with the same plots to them. Bad guy shows up, good guys win. I enjoy this show, but it can end anytime now and have the last words to the Once upon a time; they lived happily ever after.

S5E8: Against my better judgement, I continued to watch after the first season. On one hand I appreciated the creativity for using fairy tales and on the other hand, did not, because I did not like the fairy tales that we all know and love to be so twisted and distorted. BUT at this point, I am giving up, I think there are much better and newer shows that I would enjoy spending my time watching. MAYBE one day I go back and watch, but unlikely.

This show is never predictable, I just love the way they shape all these well-known stories to fit them in the plot! Pure genius!
