My one and only complaint about this show is it's portrayal of a "one true love" being the only path to happiness for it's characters, and the truckload of clichès used as plot points. That said, the cast is wonderful and endearing (even you Robbie Kay, even you) and complex; the characters at turns inspiring and infuriating. While based on fantasy, OUAT refuses to cast anyone as purely good, or purely evil. Your heart will break for the Wicked Witch of the West. You will side with the Evil Queen against Snow White's self righteous streak. You will want to follow the heroes in to the enchanted forest. Occasionally, a person needs to watch something that makes them feel like the good in the world might just prevail after all, that gives you a little hope. That is this show.

Lacking dialogue and repeated story elements are made up for by supreme actors and fabulous stories! I've always loved fairytales, novels and stories, and I couldn't stop watching this even if I wanted to...

This show is a masterpiece. Yes, it’s a retelling of fairytales, and that’s all neat and wonderful, but to cohesively mesh every fairytale you know into one storyline takes some killer skill. I am very impressed with this show, and I love the darker turn season 5 is going. The acting is well done (in most cases) and Colin O’Donoghue is flipping life, so there’s that. It really helps to be in love with a character, so in my case that’s good ‘ol Captain Hook.

This show is no longer interesting to me. It was fun while it lasted.

If you enjoy the stories from Walt Disney then you will definitely enjoy these. The fairy tales come to life, with princes and princesses from all over the kingdom such as snow white, prince charming, captain hook, and many more. I enjoy watching this series because with every new episode there is never a dull moment. and when it goes to mid-season or season finales it always ends with dramatic cliff hanger to keep you guessing which fairy tale character is going to make its debut next.

While i havent seen everything yet.. this is my review so far ^^
I like how fairytales get mixed up and twisted in this show ^^ I like the backstories of the characters and i love the costumes! :) there is magic, drama, romance and some action in this show . I also really like how they show the fairy tale parts and the real world parts. Really adds something to the characters too :)
Who doesnt love fairytales/disney :D?
