This actually looks interesting.  Anyone else looking forward to this?

I love Faery Tales in general, and this show looks really cool, from the clips.

I get the feeling I'd be constantly comparing it to Fables if I tried to watch it, so I've more or less stayed away.

It has some elements of Fables in it but for the most part the story is really different. I enjoyed and look forward to seeing how the story unfolds

I kinda thought I'd be doing that, but I like the way they incorporate all the tales so far. They give each character a really distinct personality and keeps you guessing.

I don't have a TV to watch it on, but it looked quite intriguing.

ABC should have the first episode online by now, or if they are like FOX they will have it up to watch online eight days after the original air date.

Watching the first episode right now. Got to say, the Evil Queen's outfit is rather sexy. Very sexy, actually.

I like her Evil Queen persona more than her 'modern' persona.

I know it's probably nothing, but the way Rumpelstiltskin looked at Red Riding Hood made me think he's got the hots for her...at at least thinks she's hot, cause she is. *nods* I bet he's just a creepy old man. *nods again*

I'm pretty sure she's not to happy about the imp-man's affections. Also, how the heck does he go from being an eternal prisoner with no say in anything and feared by damn near everyone to owning a whole city and possibly being the richest person in the area? I know it's supposed to be the Queen's happy ending, but he seems to be doing pretty damn well for himself.

I suppose that will be one of the things we have to look for as the series progresses.

I'll sometimes have 10th kingdom marathons. :3

I really like what I've seen of Once upon a time so far, another interesting show to keep an eye on in the same vein would be 'Grimm' too.

I'm still uncertain about Grimm, though it's certainly not horrible. It's written by the co-creator and lead writer of Angel, so it has that in its favor.

I've been hearing about Once Upon a Time a bit, and it looks to have one of the actors that was in Stargate Universe. However, it's an ABC show, and it was created by the people who created LOST, and both of those are pretty heavy strikes in my book.
