@Cynical_Ben oh, from a film history perspective Snow White can't be bettered -- I always love hearing about "Disney's Folly." And then reading the breathless, astonished reviews that came out in the newspapers after it was released... it's pretty great. But I meant that as far as the value system that we see in Snow White, it's basically the most outdated of them all -- "someday my prince will come" indeed! @Lugija Widmore plays this really jerk king guy. Basically he's the same guy as he is in Lost, lol. Fitting! @Zorixxor Rumple is definitely a fascinating character -- one who grows more complex as the season goes on. I'm glad you're willing to go through the first season at least. If you're following the same trajectory as I am, I think you'll be sold somewhere near the end of the first season. I agree about the acting not being great at first, but they do find their legs eventually. Still, Regina and Rumple are by far the best acted characters, and the kid is never, ever convincing.
