This series succesfully shows the exact opposite of blockbuster movies: Create a great story with mediocre special effects and lesser known actors. The writers behind this show do an amazing job creating one wonderfull Fairy tale adaptation after another. I did not like their previous work, but I think the writing is getting more mature (but they still make some errors that are frustrating.) But mostly they are not afraid to change major aspects of the fairy tales if necessary. The creaters of this show also worked on 'Lost' and the 'TRON: Legacy' movie. I really love how Rumpelstiltskin plays the evil maniac, especially during the first season. But there are more noteworthy roles in there, like the evil queen, her mother, Belle, Hook or Peter Pan. Emma Swan is pretty well played, but compared to the extreme characteristics of the fictional characters she is a bit bland. The things I dislike most are probably some repeated main themes (family feuds/bad parent-child relations) and that they copy the characters of fairy tales a bit too literal from the Disney franchise from time to time. Overall I think it is on of the best non-comedy shows of the past few years. PS. I am glad Lady Gaga never replied on the invite to play the Blue Fairy.

Evil queens, unicorns, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, etc.. - all the classics in a modern and well made TV serie. There are no half-naked-fake-boob babes or overly violent gunfights but instead there are lots of great actors, good story and great filming! Highly recommended!

avatar

the only show i've seen that gets better the further you watch. hope they don't run out of plotlines anytime soon!

avatar

After season 3 for me this show became forgettable, i loved it since the beggining, my second show that i ever watched (after supernatural) and i absolutelly loved it, the characteristics were awesome, but it lost all the magic when they introduced Frozen,..

avatar

This show started out awesome. I was completely hooked to the point that my sister and I would call each other during the commercials to ooohhh and aaahh over what just happened. The last 2 seasons have really gone down hill. So much so that I am several episodes behind in watching it. It seems like the writers are running out of good plot lines. I hate to say it, but it might be time to cancel the show.

avatar

Just dropped in season 5. It just lost the magic (no pun intended), because every season is the same: - Everything is alright now, everyone is happy again, yay! - A powerful Villain appears. - Villain used Curse. It is supper effective! - The Heroes lost their memory for a short time. - "Now thou shalt travel to a foreign land, farewell my Heroes." - The land ends up to be Storybrooke... again. - OH, SAVIOR, SAVE US ALL! - OH, almost-30-years-old-henry-that-ages-really-fast-but-everybody-just-decides-to-ignore-that, SAVE US ALL! - A Hero dies. Climax. - The Villain is defeated with a hidden power that the Heroes found somewhere, just laying around in Storybrooke. - Go back to step 1.

First season was good, then they lost me at season two, then they bring me back for season 3 with Peter Pan and Neverland (the best thing that they've ever done for this show). But the downfall after that is irrecoverable. Shout out to Lana Parrilla and Robert Carlyle who are the only two actors worth watching.

cancela essa desgraça logo pelo bem da humanidade

Season 7 is terrible. Glad this show has been cancelled. The mother / daughter casting is terrible. I don’t know what the director was thinking. They are not bad actors but not right for this show.

avatar

Lana. Parrilla. That is in itself enough information to go start this show because that woman could seriously bring magic to a show about potatoes for all I care and she is one of the main reasons that this show is what it is but other than that, it's got all of our favorite fairytales but with different and sometimes darker twists. It's a very layered show in which good and evil isn't always what it seems and you actually love the villains more than the heroes at some point. The writers do a great job in creating a world in which anything is possible and all of your favorite fairytales collide. I'm never bored watching this show and if you are a lover of anything magic like myself than you simply have to watch this!
