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.

One Upon a Time was AMAZING!!! I loved all the songs but The Charmings' was my favourite! Loved Emma's too but it was quite obvious that Killian is a very good singer, Revenge is gonna be mine was Awesome (like i said love all the songs) his voice is by far my favourite, then Davids. But the songs propelled the story, they didn't just break out in song for no reason and "The Song in my Heart" tied in nicely in the end. Loved it! CaptainSwan is finally married!!!

I loved it at the beginning. It was someting new and adventurous. In the middle i didn't like it so much any more because I feel like it repeats a little bit . But right now, it's back to being awesome

I enjoyed the first 5 seasons. Then season 6 got here and I don't know what the heck the writers were thinking... I have a 4 episode rule... if I'm hating 4 episodes in a row, I'm wasting my time and there are better things to be watching. Had to stop watching this. Really hated the first 4 episodes of season 6 and have no more interest in the show.

I love this show, however the holes in the story plot and the discrepancies just keep increasing:
That being said, it has a great cast, innovative ideas and great special effects.
One of my favourite shows so far.
A little suggestion of another worlds the producers might consider visit: Narnia, Andalasia, Pixie Hollow, etc...

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.
