I'm really enjoying this show! Anyone else watching it? I liked how the stories were intertwined. Also, I didn't hate Jennifer Morrison or Ginnifer Goodwin, which is big.

I skipped it last night because I was so busy, but I am ABSOLUTELY watching it online this week.

I loved Lana Parilla in Swingtown, so I'll watch it just for her.

edited for clarity

I tried to watch it, but we only got about 30 minutes into it and realized we didn't care.

Full ep for free online. I need to watch the first 20 minutes, but otherwise I liked it. I like that it's different/removed from reality a bit. I've been craving things with a good story lately.

I watched and also really enjoyed it. I'm so glad the stories are intertwined since from previews, it was hard to tell. Between this and Grimm, I'm definitely going to be getting my fill of fairytales for awhile.

I like it! Again, a show for my husband, daughter AND myself that we all like and is appropriate...so rare!

I think it's a fun idea for a show and I'll keep watching. It took me the whole ep to realise Emma is Zoey from HIMYM

And Cameron from House!

I was going to put this on in the background while doing homework, but I was so interested I just watched it. It was awesome.

Never realized how much Jennifer Morrison and Gennifer Goodwin look alike until tonight. Whoa.

I kept thinking Emma was Snow White, I didn't realise until we met the school teacher that she was the baby, they really do look similar

I love this show! This is one of those shows where I actually notice the music (great score). Yay the prince is still alive!

It had some cheesiness here and there, but I liked it! It reminded me a little of Fables.

I know he has to survive for Snow White to get her happy ending, but I feel like if he had died, it would have been great motivation to set up Snow and the Evil queen as enemies. Not that they aren't already, of course.

I watched this week, and while I wasn't thrilled with it, I'm interested enough to keep watching for another week or two.

I only watched this cause I'm home sick and had watched all my other shows, but you know, it wasn't terrible! I think I'll keep watching if for no reason than that post-curse Snow White has the cutest hair cut ever.

I absolutely hate Ginnifer, but with that hair, my cold heart somehow softened

I liked it and will keep DVR'ing yet, but I'm still annoyed at Gennifer Goodwin.

I'm excited for this show! And for more answers. Like, are the modern versions reincarnations? Will they come to remember what happened to them previously, in another time? Or is it more about the essence and soul of the character? Also, when will they get the sweet little boy away from the witchy witch!!

Really? I remember hearing that when she was on HIMYM, but I'd always just assumed it wasn't true. Something about her mannerisms on HIMYM vs House just didn't click in my head.

Why all the Ginnifer Goodwin hate here? I'm not sure I even know who she is other than vaguely remembering her in a movie from a few years ago.

Ginnifer Goodwin is a former vegan. I think she's cute though, and a moderately good actress, although her range hasn't been tested.

I liked it a lot! I'm a huge sucker for fairy tales, though.

I had been under the impression two episodes were up though, and was greatly looking forward to a long fairy tale lunch.

So, do the villains retain their memories? Particularly the Queen, though I'm wondering about Rumpelstiltskin too.

Just watched it online. I really liked it! Now I'm craving Sunday night so I can cuddle up and watch. I like how creepy everything is...this show is reminding me of a darker version of Enchanted.

The queen must, the spell was her happy ending, after all. I think Rumplestiltskin is maybe just a jerk who loves money? Or the queen let him in on the whole thing as her ally.
