It's silly and pretty and (despite the fact that the effects are kind of bad) I love it so much more than I thought I would.

Anyone else?

I think the way they twisted the fairytales was interesting, although I am really not a fan of the costumes... I look at them and just think "no, stop, now, this isn't appropriate" But that's just me being nit-picky about historically accurate costuming.

Because I can...

I really enjoyed the first season. I never did end up watching the second. I really liked the concept they used, it was very interesting.

I'm not sure if it's still on the go, but while I was watching it, the actors for Snow and Charming were dating, I thought it was the most adorable thing ever.

I had that reactions to the costumes at first as well, but now I think that was kind of the intention all along. It makes the whole place seem more relevantly fairy tale-ish and less muddle-middle-ages-throw-back (like some fairy tale based things) to me. I think one of the things I love about the show is how it takes fairy tales so out of context.

Is anyone else getting gay chat line ads at the bottom of this thread?

Might be all the talk of fairies, the word "twisted" and when you said throw-back.

It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

I get a "Star wars, play free today ad", so I guess its just you? ;)

 

I LOVE Once Upon A Time. I am currently in the middle of the second season and pretty much flapping my hands like the fangirl I am whenever something happens. I don't know much about costumes versus time period (other than I know that these aren't correct) but what annoys me most is the amount of boob these women seem to get in fairytale land. I did not know that was part of the fairytale. Also: skintight leather/latex trousers? Really? But okay, all the characters look good, so I am not complaining that much.

 

I find it really funny how they mix up the storylines and background stories, and how the characters and stories are all intermingled. It is a big crossover really, but so far I find it still very believable, and do not yet feel ike "Okay, now they are just trying too hard".

 

Also, Killian Jones (Hook). Wouldn't mind if he sailed passed my house...
