Once Upon A Time

Postby Bouncy Castle » Mon Jan 30, 2012 10:09 am

Channel 5 have announced that they'll be showing this series in the spring, so we don't have too long to wait.

If you want a sneak preview, tune in before the Celebrity Big Brother final - they are going to be giving us a 60-second clip to savour! [I'll give that a miss, I think!!]

Apparently, Jennifer Morrison (House) is great fun, there are witches and dwarves and all your favourite fairytale characters, and fans of Lost will have a great time picking out all the references to that show. Plus, there will be shocks.





Ooooooh.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

You're in for a treat. its a great series. Ginnifer Goodwin makes a pretty hot Snow White.

I watch it along side Grimm (dunno if you guys can see that, or if there are plans or not). which is the same basic premise, but told from a different angle. and more bloody. But fun.

I have watched the links for once upon a time so I am presently episode 11 and I also watch grimm
OUAT is pretty good and you really want to see the good guys win only thing that gets complicated is the vast amount of characters they bring in such as king midas , jiminy cricket you kind of wish they would stick with a particular character database Semi spoiler: * plus furious about the huntsman [what they did to him is unfair]*
Grimm however is pretty cool kind of reminds you of buffy in some ways they do stick to the german named characters which is kind of cool to learn on the side.
advice watch both and see which you prefer !!!
And in Heather's case, there were sometimes Third Thoughts and Fourth Thoughts, although these were quite difficult to manage and sometimes led her to walk into doors

I'm intrigued. I've just dl'd ouat 1x01 and am watching it as i write, looks good so far. and now you say theres another? grimm? hmm. most of my shows are in the off season - true blood, dexter, walking dead, eureka, warehouse 13 or have been cancelled, so these could fill the gap nicely

Love Warehouse 13, but the one that is closest to my heart is Eureka, and that's been cancelled, so I'm heartbroken.

I didn't know Eureka had been cancelled. :cry:

Well, it is kind of a character of the week, and trying to figure out who is who is part of the fun. but the chars in the flashbacks you don't really need to follow THAT closely. besides, if you want a war between good and evil you kind of have to have an army :lol:

on Grimm yeah, i always have to remember blutbaden is the werewolves.

They've given the producers 1 episode to tie everything up.

I've never been so angry (and devastated) at the cancellation of a television show before.

I'm up to episode 5 and it's OK, quite engaging. Robert Carlyle steals every scene, of course.

WOOHOO; Amy acker, my favourite!!

We were just talking about the show at work today. I have been watching it since it started. It's on Sunday night here, but I usually watch it online the next day. Frankly, all 3 ladies are hot in it! :)

I watched the first 3 episodes of Grimm, but I could not stick with it. I find it's lacking a little depth and the effects leave a little to be desired.

A lot of people watch Dexter, but I have not seen it.

Oh, Dexter's great - but you have to watch it in sequence
