My DH, 2 DD's (12 and 15) had the best time watching this show. Can't wait for the next episode.
Revenge is our other favorite show. Very intriguing show too.
OK, I confess, I watched it during the game too. We were losing and well, there you go.

You know how there's the idea that students give their teachers an apple? Snow White/Mary Margaret's students give her a pear instead, since apples are her downfall. The students don't know that, but it's one of those little things that adds to the story, like the Evil Queen/mayor offering apple cider to Emma. Little parts of the fairy tale characters that carried over into the real world.

I hope that makes sense, my brain is just not articulating my thoughts very well tonight!

Did anyone else think that Emma looked older then 28? Also, what was the deal with SW's right ear (with short hair) it seems to stick out sooo far.

Thoughts on Traditional Fairy Tales?

I wrote a blog about how much I loved the season premier - it was everything I had hoped it would be!

But I got a response to that blog that left me thinking about Disney's spin on certain fairy tales. For instance, Jiminy Cricket was created by Disney as a character in Pinocchio - he wasn't an original part of any traditional "fairy tale," yet appears as a main character in Once Upon a Time.

Taking this thought, we can turn to the brothers Grimm and how they put an oral society's fairy tales down on paper. Those tales had changed as they were passed from one person to another, but became one standard story once the brothers had put them into a book. I feel that Disney simply took those stories and put their own spin on them, although there are purists out there who absolutely didn't like the concept at all after viewing the show!

Like I said, I'm a huge fan and can't wait for the next episode! I think I will do a "Once Upon a Time Sundays" blog and recap each week!

Thanks to everyone posting all the ''clues" and their synopsis. I hope the show will continue to produce thought provoking story lines, that can be discussed in great detail with all of you. For me it adds another dimension to tv watching which I really missed. When I watch tv nowadays I am usually doing something else too, I love the fact I can now again spend an hour with my son with no distractions watching a show we both enjoy. We have hopefully found our Lost replacement

I also loved the show. I watched it again on On-Demand last night. One thing that intrigued me was - how did Henry leave Storybrook. He told Emma that no one could leave cause bad things happen when they try. As we saw when Emma tried to leave. So how did Henry get out?

I thought about that. Could it be because Henry is not part of the enchantment? But then again, neither is Emma, really. They both came in from the real world. Maybe Emma is affected because she was born in Faerie (or whatever you want to call it).

maybe it ties into Emma's birthday wish? She wished to not be alone and perhaps she has the *power* for things to happen even tho she has no idea? Henry may have been aware that that particular day would be his opportunity so he was ready to escape at the opportune time?

Yes but I grew up in St. Louis. I am still rooting for the Cowboys since the Rams suck.

Emma was born in the fairy tale world. Henry was born in the modern-day world. I think that's why Emma couldn't leave, but Henry could.

This was my thought as well.

That's what I was thinking. Once she crossed into Storybrooke, she could not leave.
