The more I watch the more disappointed I am with prince Charming's real world character. He's so underhanded and not the kind chivalrous male I would expect. And the way he lied to the women made me so mad. I need him to behave the way a prince should. IMO

The only upside to this episode was that Midas' daughter didn't want to marry him either.

Who IS this August guy?! His name made me think of August Wilson, great writer. But I bet there's meaning to it, somehow...

How did he get there, since strangers aren't supposed to be able to? And do people who try to leave just disappear? Did she get to go home, actually? I want to know the rules of this universe!

I thought Regina WA going to lock her up with Belle. I think August is based on a writer also. The thing that's hard is remembering its a show that is going to have multiple seasons. Emma probably won't break this curse for a while and even then I think folks will travel between storybrooke and fairytale world. 2more Weeks till we find out more. waiting sucks.

I wish they'd stop basing so much of the show on the watered-down Disney versions. Try as they may to put a new spin on things, it still feels lazy and derivative to me. If they went to the original source material (Grimm Brothers, HC Andersen, Perrault, La Fontaine, Aesop etc) I bet the show would be a whole lot better and they'd start thinking more outside the box.

I read an article recently that explained how they have to dodge copyrights and not infringe on certain stories. And of course, the network is owned by Disney. I forget all the details but they made a good case for why they have to pick and choose the characters they do.

Charming is a flake. I keep hoping that they will explain why he couldn't just buck up and leave the wife, and I also keep hoping they'll explain why Snow is so meek in Storybrook when she's such a badass in the Fairytale.

Yes to all this.


Apparently originally the Sheriff was supposed to be Robin Hood but they couldn't get the rights worked out for that.

I would have thought the Grimm fairytales would be up for use because of age, but I'm not up on all the laws involved.

I would hope to think they're trying to keep their personalities polar opposites. It might give more room for plot development (discovering pieces of themselves they didn't know existed) as the curse begins to break.

I hope you are right, because they are starting to lose me.

Unless David's actually the shallow twin brother and not James.


This is interesting:
August von Haxthausen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
In that year the Haxthausen estates were affected by a peasant revolt against the Bonapartist Kingdom of Westphalia, a revolt that was "in some measure a rebuke to the dominant landed class" but that the Haxthausen family chose to interpret "as an act of defiance by true Germans against conditions created by the foreign domination,"[2] a view which strongly influenced the young August, who participated in the War of the Sixth Coalition against France. His activities at this time were recorded by his closest friends, the Brothers Grimm, with whom he shared a deep interest in popular legends and fairy tales, which he collected from his fellow soldiers and hoped to publish (selections of this collection were published posthumously).

If Emma can tell when someone is telling the truth, why can't she see when Sidney is lying to her?

EXACTLY!

I did not enjoy last night's episode. It was boring and really really hokey in the fairytale story line. I wish they would try harder to make that dark or adventurous or ANYTHING but silly and hokey. They've done other fairytale storylines MUCH better.

They keep telling us this - there has to be meaning in that, doesn't there?


Thinking about August W. Booth... What characters do we know who have crossed from the fantasy to reality? The narrator in the Neverending Story, for example - but a character who would have escaped fairy tale land, but has access back in. Or does simply knowing the truth make it possible, since we know Mr. Gold has the ability to leave town and return, because he brought a baby back. Pinocchio totally seems like a possibility... he doesn't lie!

My mother and I are hooked on this show. Yes, it can be cheesy but oh well!

It is kind of sad that no one can truly be happy in Storybrooke due to Regina and her control freak tendencies. However, The Evil Queen and Rumpelstiltskin are my two, favorite characters on the show, lol. I don't particularly like Snow White; she is kind of slutty!

I'm sorry, but if anyone can be termed "slutty," it's David. He's a married man who has an active sex life with his wife and is courting another woman. As far as we know, he and Mary Margaret never slept together.

Agreed!

I'm guessing Emma's internal lie detector is off in Storybrooke?

I'm just waiting for Belle and Catherine to break out with a vengeance. It's only a matter of time!

Just when I thought this series was finally picking things up they hit me with the worst episode in its short history. There are too many subplots that do nothing to drive the story forward or even seem interesting. The Dreamy/Nova storyline was more simplistic and annoying than heart-warming and touching. If I start continue my rant I may never stop! Just wanted to voice my displeasure lol

I don't know why they're so stuck. There is so much material they could work with. And this just in:
