Default 'Once Upon a Time' Discussion Thread



First of all, WHY isn't there a discussion thread for this? Pretty shocked.

Now, this is the discussion thread for the hit TV show 'Once Upon a Time'. The first season aired last year/this year and the second season beings Sunday, September 30th.

If you haven't seen the first season, it's on Netflix. That's where I am currently watching the show. I sort of didn't expect much, but with the great writing/acting and Lost references(the show is from some of the writers of Lost), I am a huge fan now. So, I strongly recommend everyone watch this show. You won't be disappointed. Plenty of surprises all around.

In any case, discuss the first season and the upcoming second season.

'In a land of magic, princesses, fairies and witches, an Evil Queen places a spell that freezes time and transports all the inhabitants of the fairytale world into Storybrooke, a town in the modern day USA. They cannot remember anything of their past lives and the Evil Queen now known as Regina is running the town and its inhabitants as the Mayor. The only one who knows the truth is Regina's adopted son Henry due to his book of fairytale stories. In order to make things right Henry manages to track down his birth mother Emma who is living in Boston and convinces her stay with him in Storybrooke. For Emma is in fact the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming and is the only one who can break the spell. Now as the fairytale stories begin to unfold in the real world and Emma slowly begins to believe Henry's claims, tensions between Regina and Emma rise. This rivalry develops and Emma becomes determined to stop Regina as well as build on her budding relationship with her mother (who is now Henry's good hearted school teacher) and the son she abandoned ten years ago.'

What makes this show so good is the amount of fairy tale characters this show brings to life. You meet new characters almost every episode and the show puts a nice twist to almost all of their fairy tales. And the writing is very good so everything is woven together nicely.

I think you'll enjoy it. It's definitely not a G-rated show. There is some action and twists in some of the stories to please adults, too.

You will. Once you start trying to figure out who is who in the town of Storybrooke, you're hooked. Lots of red herrings in the show, too, so be careful with that. Also, if you play close attention, you will get clues as to where the show will go in future episodes/seasons. So many Easter eggs.

Lastly, Rumplestiltskin > all

I watched the first episode when it premiered, and although I enjoyed it, I didn't continue to watch it.

Now that it's on Netflix I am giving it another go. I'm only a few episodes in, but I am pretty pleased so far.


I have to say that Rumplestiltskin is fantastic. I love crazy villains when they're done right, and Robert Carlyle does a phenomenal job.

That's how I was, but the more you watch, the more you start appreciating the show. ESPECIALLY Rumplestiltskin. He really is the key to the whole show.

Also, try paying attention to the little, minute details. There are Easter eggs everywhere and little hints as to where the show will go later.

Enjoy all the twists and turns to all the fairy tale characters.

Just watched the first episode, Ill be sure to finish this one. I really like the actor who plays Rumplestiltskin as well, first seen him in 28 weeks later.
