Problem 1: Straight rip-off from Dementors. Quite surprised JKR hasn't sued.
Wraiths were around long before JK created the Dementors.

Well, we loved the first series, and thought this new beginning was good, but could be better.

Problem 1: Straight rip-off from Dementors. Quite surprised JKR hasn't sued.

Problem 2: Why is Prince Charming still referring to Snow White as Mary-Margaret? He, and everyone else now knows her ID.

Problem 3: Why doesn't Mulan recognize the most famous person in fairyland?
possibly because she is in, for want of a better word, civilian clothing and unconcious in a pile of rubble with her face not showing

And her hair is very short

Finally got round to watching this today. I loved it - can't wait for next week.

It's annoying me who Dr Whale is and that no one in Storybrooke knows either. They all knew who the others were! I'm hoping August/Pinocchio are back too. I think the man at the start must be Bae too but no doubt there will be a few twists along the way.

For those talking about Wraiths/dementors rip off, I agree with the people saying JKR did not invent wraiths. They were even in LOTR (ringwraiths) which was written in the 1930's!!!

Anyway, can't wait until episode 2! I've so far avoided all spoilers from this series and will continue to do so, so I can watch it 'fresh'

All I want to know is if August is still alive? He was my favourite character last season. Plus, he's pretty easy on the eye.

If anyone watches the hour-long recap, they might get a better idea of who's returning (judging by who gets recapped). On the other hand, maybe the producers know that's what people will think...

Watching the show now, I thought it looked like a Dementor from the opening sequence.. but wtf. Wasn't expecting Harry Potter.

Good episode, especially enjoyed Gold and Queenie. Great to have the show back

My only grumble is the charisma void created by teaming up Charming (Ha!) and Henry

Great first ep.

Loved the twist with the fairytale flashback not being a flashback.

Enjoyed episode 2... but wished there was more about the snow/emma storyline... hopefully next week will focus more on them.

I also like the idea that the evil queen might evolve.

Had to quote this from reddit, made me laugh:

"Can we all just appreciate that Snow White hit Sleeping Beauty and then was attacked by Mulan.
WHERE IS YOUR CHILDHOOD NOW?"

Watching 2nd episode right now. Glad that we are seeing more of the Queen's past, that led her to who she is now.

I loved the ending to the episode. Cora showing up in the present timelime - AMAZING! I was worried she was lost forever when Regina sent her into the looking glass.

I look forward to the interaction between her and Snow especially, considering their history.

Apart from the Cora/Regina stuff, I didn't really like the episode if I'm honest. Charming bores me, we had no Belle, and only a little Red

I wonder where August has gone!

We saw him still lying there as a block of wood. Hopefully someone will help him, otherwise he's going to have a boring time of it!

He was gone when his Father came to his room at the end though.

Curious as to why Regina does not remember Jefferson/Mad Hatter, that wasn't explained last season was it?

I don't think the Townspeople trying to leave thought it through. Once they forget their Enchanted Forest lives then they would not remember Regina being the Evil Queen and therefore would have no reason to leave Storybrooke. So once they crossed the barrier they would just think "What am I doing" and go back home.

I love it when Regina is in full flow. She's truly sexy/fierce.

Still, too much Prince Bland this week, and not enough of Snow and Emma.

Sleeping Beauty's acting has been more wooden than Pinocchio's lately.

Sorry had to get that in there somewhere.

It was worse than that ... Prince Bland accompanied by Henry. The worst screen sucking tandem possible.

Their combined on-screen charisma is as interesting as a tissue.

I f***in love August so want him back on-screen soon. Red's been great recently too, hopefully we'll see more of her.

Just watched both eps, wow the first ep was so good, then they follow up with that snooze fest! Loved the fairytale land, and the end, but other then that... yawn.
