Any fans of "Once Upon a Time" here?
« on: October 06, 2013, 07:51:25 PM »
When it was announced a few years ago that essentially the B writing team from "Lost" was going to have this show about magic and where fairytale characters were put into the real world without knowing who they were, I bought into the show hook, line and sinker. I've never regretted it either. I think it's a fantastic show and some of the creativity they show weaving the stories together is amazing. I'm not as excited about the new spin-off coming up but I do plan to watch it and see what happens.

Just looking to see if there are any other fans around that like chatting about this show?

SHIT, the Season 3 premier was like... last month wasn't it?

I was looking forward to it and then I totally forgot about it D:

I marathoned through Season 1 on Netflix, and then Season 2 when they added that. Its easily one of my favorite shows ever, and I really need to catch up with it.

I'm just gonna go ahead and be the first one in the thread to say it: Rumpelstiltskin is one of the greatest characters ever written for anything period.

-now leaves this thread until he's caught up on Season 3- xD

Hooked. Totally. Utterly. Hooked. And I admit to the tiniest crush on Hook.

Rumpelstiltskin is easily the most complex and amazing character on that show. Of course, they couldn't have cast anyone better then Robert Carlyle. He -makes- that character what it is.

I'm pretty sure we are only two episodes into Season Three...and damn...two excellent episodes. Peter Pan is amazing.

Hooked. Totally. Utterly. Hooked. And I admit to the tiniest crush on Hook.

Oh, I adore Hook. I just hope he doesn't fall prey to the "Sheriff's Curse"...or more commonly know as "Let's kill off all the cute guys" curse....

Im a big fan of the show, but still need to watch season 2, as the network overhere in australia did a weird thing and started showing it in the middle of the season and i missed most of the first half, so I have to wait till it comes out on DVD to see it which is in a few days

That is the most accurate statement though, he is an amazing character with an amazing actor.

Ugh...that sucks, Koren. I hope that you catch up soon. I know I was chomping at the bit for Season Three to start. I'm curious about the spin off too so I'll probably tune in to see what's up with it. I know the basic premise but I want to see what they do with it.

I started watching it, wasn't super impressed, got dragged along to continue and then they did all the characterization with Rumpelstilskin and I was pretty immediately converted at that point. He's certainly not a hero or a role model, but he is a great example of how to write a nuanced bad guy that is both complex and still a bad guy. He really elevates the show beyond the cat-fight central plot. :)

Also, I am pretty pumped for what they're doing with Peter Pan. It is cool to see the not so nice version.

I didn't know about a spin off. What is the deal with that?

Also the special FX budget for the show must be absolutely insane! Which is great because it really shows the power of the small screen.

I like the show, though I've only watched the first season. Mr. Gold is a thoroughly fun character, and the main reason why I watch it.

agreed, they only have played two episodes. Remember On Demand is your friend if you missed them. The spin off is wonderland and to be honest the first episode of that kind of left me flat. I am going to give it a couple to see if it hooks me. I have seen every episode of the original though and think it is great story telling. I can totally relate to Mr. Gold/Rumple. I agree with the actor being great, too. Too bad SG:Universe got hosed so bad and never given a real chance to succeed.

Firstly, it's rare that villains are as interesting and uniquely complex as the 'hero'. I know there are a few exceptions out there, but they're exceptions. The real flair, drama, deception, and deliciously decadent storytelling is usually hiding within a story's main protagonist... That said. I fucking love Mr. Gold, and I love his beauty and the beast relationship with Belle. I'm a disgustingly addicted 'Rumbelle' fan, as they say. I'm sure I've got daddy issues somewhere to blame for this, or a contrary nature, or I just like bad guys. Is that a syndrome? But yeah, I love Once Upon a Time, and I love Once Upon a Time in Wonderland too! But it's this...

I love "Once Upon a Time", even though I am way behind, I am still on season one.  I do love it very much so, I am hooked on it, and hope to catch up soon but think that may take a bit.  Ah well.  It is nice to see this thread.  O:)

I like it. Season 1 was good. Season 2 was a bit of a letdown for me, and Season 3 has proved to be interesting so far, at least.

Love it. Have yet to find the time to watch season 3 or Wonderland spin-off unfortunately. Also trying to get a group RP started centered around it if anyone's interested (it's in the group RP requests section).

I said it somewhere on here before, but they need to post ancestry charts for everyone to avoid any unwanted incest happening. On the real though.

This.

Only one more episode for me to watch before I swap over to Wonderland.

If I'm not watching the Wonderland spin-off, am I going to miss nice little tidbits from the main series or is it mostly self-contained?

So far it seems mostly self contained. There have been maybe a handful of references to the world of the original show, but nothing of the plot of the original show.

once upon a time mentions wonderland through the queen of hearts and mad hatter, but once upon a time did not mention alice.  i still wonder how the queen of hearts wound up in the enchanted forest.
