Once Upon A Time Impression So Far

I sat down yesterday and attempted to watch Once Upon A Time for the first time. Everyone has been requesting that I watch this show for some odd reason. I just finished watching Season 2 to The Following so I figured why not right?

season-1Honestly I’m glad I did give this show a chance. Is it corny? You bet your sweet ass it is, but it also puts an interesting spin on some well known fables and I think that’s why I’ve taken a liking to this show so far. The action is what you would expect out of a good 90s TV show and I’ve seen better special effects in The Smurfs, but I’m only on season one right now and hopefully things get better in season 2.

So far everyone is doing a pretty decent job at portraying these iconic characters, but I can’t say that I like everyone or the storyline in general. I think I’m on episode 7 right now. The Huntsman just collapsed because the evil queen just crushed his heart and it would appear that he’s dead.

I do have one question though. When did the queen get her memories back? I know she’s been slowly figuring things out, but how do you explain her knowing about his heart? Was it just instinct? I guess I’ll find out soon enough. Some times this show can feel like a soap opera. I hate that feeling, but it doesn’t happen often and that’s a good thing.

So far Once Upon A Time is a mixed bag or me. It’s interesting enough to hold my attention, but it honestly reminds me of Charmed. You know how everyone acted like something big was going down, but it’s just really lame and under budgeted. That’s what Once Upon A Time is to me.

Hopefully it’ll get better in the next few episodes and things will start to happen a lot faster because right now it’s moving at a snails pace and it’s beginning to annoy me. I guess I’ve been watching too much of The Following because things happen quite quickly in that show. I might decide to write about each episode I watch or just review the whole season when I’m done with it. I haven’t decided yet. I guess it depends on how well this article does.

If you guys have any shows you would recommend me watch just drop a comment and let me know. I have nothing better to do at the moment and I would love to watch some new shows.

  1. OUAT went downhill for me after the first season. I’m still watching it though, so I’m not sure what that means! Like the new look by the way. 😀

    1. V! You’re alive :].

      I’ve watched a few more episodes since I wrote this earlier today. It’s getting a little better i guess. It’s just too cheesy for me :].

      1. You’re right, it is very cheesy! It gets worse too, and Season 2 was totally ridiculous, even though the whole magic in Once Upon a Time is all a bit ridiculous normally. I won’t be watching the next season but I’d be curious to see what you think once you finish the first.

      2. I actually just finished the first season :]. I’m working on a review for it now. It’s too bad that it gets worse instead of better. I don’t think there is another show quite like it because this has potential. I’m guessing it didn’t live up to it.

      3. It definitely had potential. You might find season two to be more enjoyable than I did (that is, if you continue watching it), but it feels pretty repetitive after a while.

      4. I’ll give it a shot :]. I just hope it gets more interesting than what it is right now because it’s really repetitive. It’s way too romantic for my taste and it honestly feels like a cheap soap opera.
