new fall shows - Page 3

post #41 of 45

I am really liking Once Upon a Time and the plotline is keeping things very interesting. Never a dull moment, but not difficult to follow. Watched Grimm and thought it was good. Both shows take HUGE liberities with classic fairytales but once you get passed that it's all ok.

 

DH really likes Grimm favours it to Once Upon a Time, but I like Upon a Time better :-)

I tried Once Upon a Time but I missed the first few minutes of the first show, and I was extremely confused and turned it off after about 10 minutes. Glad to hear you say it isn't difficult to followI Maybe I'll try it again, and actually watch the beginning smile.gif

Partly inspired by this thread and partly because I can't resist stories that re-work fairy tales, I watched the first couple of episodes of Once Upon a Time. I definitely prefer it to Grimm. (Thank you internet downloading! It's so nice to catch up on shows rather than wait for re-runs or DVDs etc.) The story is more creative, the characters more interesting, it's harder to predict what will happen. I enjoyed the little inventive touches and trying to work out various fairy tale references. The acting is uneven and I think overall it's still a work in progress, but it was better than Grimm

I will say yes, the first part of the first show was actually very confusing. This is becuase there is a dual plotline going in two different stories/times. One is Fairytale land which sorta follows the Snow White story, but freely incorporates all fairytale charactors from any story into it. The other plotline is modern time with the same actors playing different charactors, plus some charactors that are not from Fairytale land.  The fairytale characters do not know who they are, in an amnesia kinda of way. That was a bit confusuing to me to too.

 

The plotlines in Fairytale land help explain how and why the characters are in modern time and who is who. And then in future episodes those scenes are used as backstories.

 

One of the best aspects of the show is seeing how the fairytale charactor's looks/traits comes through in modern times. The little inventive touches as Ollyoxenfree said...

they are finally starting to break that pattern! I really like Justin Long as her boyfriend
