Once Upon a Time

Phenominal new show. Generally would think that people here are going to love it and would highly recommend catching up using on demand or the internet and starting to watch it.

Yes, it's from the Lost guys - actually in Episode 1 the main characte wakes up and you get the close up eye shot, which was cool

I'm iffy after watching two episodes last night. It didn't grab me as a must watch television event, but I also didn't change the channel.
During commercial breaks, DP and I discussed it and we feel that it will be a one season long show.

I liked the first episode and missed the second because cable is out from the snow storm. I think I can watch it on abc.com after I get Internet back up.

If it's limited to one season it won't be because of the ratings - it was the highest premiered drama in a long time and it was the best premier of the season for any show.

The special effects are real good, the story is compelling, acting is solid and the writing and shooting are excellent.

I may agree with you that the show premise might be difficult to stretch out over multiple seasons - I'm intrigued to see how that plays out. Some shows - the Event comes to mind - rush to the reveal. I'm hoping becasue it's from the Lost makers that they will draw it out appropriately and have some interesting side stories.

Love it!!! Just finished watching the second episode. The cool thing is that they've put in enough things for people who like to obsess to obsess about, but people who don't like to obsess can just enjoy it.

I've seen both episodes, and so far I think it's fun and somewhat campy.

I've enjoyed the first 2 episodes. I don't think it is anything ground breaking but it is fun mindless entertainment. We'll keep watching.

I really wanted to like this show, but just cannot get into it. I watched both episodes this weekend and found it a bit dry. It reminds me of a cheesy kids' flick from West Coast Video back in the day. Personally, I think that this is not going to last much longer than one season, if that. Grimm, on the other hand, was far better. I really enjoyed watching it on Friday.

Iffy

I'm iffy on it... I watched it on demand last night (both episodes), and I'm not sure I'm going to keep up with it. What's bothering me the most with it is the costuming on the storyland (as opposed to the Storybrooke) side- I'm finding that they are just UGLY. I did like Maleficent's, but I thought Snow White's dresses and hair were horrid, the Evil Queen's worse, and that pulled me right out.

*sigh*

I may give it a couple of more episodes via demand if I can't sleep at night, but I don't know.

I haven't tried Grimm yet, but was anxious to see it as well...
