I didn't hate this. But I didn't love it either.

As premises go, I guess you could do worse for a show about fairy tales: a curse from the Evil Queen that imprisons everyone from the fairy tale world in the (much worse) real world and freezes time. No more happy endings. Just the kind of premise you would expect
FROM
THE
WRITERS
OF
LOST

Hopefully now that the show premiered, they can stop with the Lost crap. OMG! The clock is frozen at 8:15! Now it's 8:16! Look at the house number! Look at the eyeball! OMG! Just stop.

Lana Parrilla killed it as both Regina and the Evil Queen. That casting appears to be perfect. She does one hell of an evil eye.

Snow White and Prince Charming: sooooo annoying and cheesy. And Henry? I wouldn't have made it out of Boston with him.

I guess I don't know what I was expecting from a show about fairy tale characters. A lot of it was too cute for my tastes (well, it is about fairy tales). It looks like it can and will get a little darker/more mature down the road. I just wasn't sure if I was watching a show on ABC or ABC Family.

I saw potential enough to watch some more.

I took away from it and the previews for next week that the queen is as clueless as anyone else and only Rump is in on it...although they left it open enough to go either way.

About 25 minutes was all I can take. I know pilots have to introduce the characters and let us know about their quirks and how they interact with their fellow characters, but this was just plain boring to me.

Clearly I'm not watching the right commercials -- I had heard zero about this show til ... somebody on twitter mentioned it the day before it aired.

Also, didn't hate it, didn't love it. There were elements that I liked -- after all, they were clever enough to name the lead character after me! (But do I really have to drive around in CRZ's car?) Kinda interesting to work from the whole fairy tale book that everybody already knows, rather than constructing it's own mythos. But really, there aren't any of the classic fairy tales that I've ever been into. And it is certainly very good looking, & strong use of music -- like Lost.

I'm curious enough to give it a few more episodes & see how it goes.

Except the whole point of "wax on/wax off" was to demonstrate that one needs a good work ethic and a lot of discipline in order to master the martial arts - where as this is more like "you need to comfortable in high humidity" to be...
