    Re: Once Upon A Time ABC

    Awesome list, ButterflyFaery. I was wondering who the troll in the Queen's circle could be and then I saw the Billy Goats Gruff in your list. I wonder if he could be from that story?

    I'm obsessed too. I haven't been excited about a show in a long time (am not counting Game of Thrones b/c I've read the books). It's driving me insane b/c I have to know how the story ends and we don't!

    Here's a little something I found out about Cinderella - am going to put it in spoilers to be safe.

    Click to see Spoiler:
    Pearlman also told us that we’ll be seeing another princess very soon: Cinderella. The writers have decided that Cinderella and Snow White will be good friends. And why not? As contemporaries in fairytale literature, there’s no reason these girls wouldn’t know one another: “It’s kind of fun to see how it comes about and what that relationship is like. It plays in a way that…. for viewers who know the classic fairytales, it’s very respectful and kind of a modern day twist on it. For people who don’t know the classic fairytales, it kind of plays on that too. It’s like ‘well, of course Cinderella and Snow White would be friends. Why wouldn’t they be?’. I think it works on both levels.” Lana Parrilla, who plays the Evil Queen, also told us that Rumplestiltskin will be involved in the Cinderella story.

    CCL you got me curious and I went back and watched my Disney movies. Snow has Prince Charming and Sleeping Beauty has Prince Phillip. I think Cinderella's is Phillip also but he has dark hair where as Sleeping Beauty's Prince has light hair.

    LOL I haven't been this obsessed with fairy tales since my daughter was 2. I just love the show and all the fairy tale characters.

    As anticipated, I loved Giancarlo Esposito as the Magic Mirror and the Mayor's private investigator.

    I think technically the bad guy in Jack and the beanstalk is just a giant. Though I think sometimes giant and ogre are used in place of each other. To me, the former D and D player ogre and giant are distinct creatures. lol

    Cinderella's is also Prince Charming. Prince Philip was my crush when I was a girl, which is the only reason I know. Now, though, I'll take Flynn Rider over all of them.

    You beat me to it! I kept wracking my brains thinking, Where have I seen that face before? Then when I saw Carlyle's name in the credits I put it together. My husband is British, and "Full Monte" is one of his favorite movies. It's ironic, because in the movie, he was haranguing his friends to do something they didn't want to do, and here he was badgering the EQ to do something she didn't want to do.

    And now we know that Rumpy brought the infant Henry to EQ, which begs the question: can he leave the town? And yes, I think it's pretty strongly implied that somehow the curse didn't affect him (other than making him loose all that make-up, ha ha).

    On a side note: yet another foreign actor (like Simon Bates from "The Mentalist" and Hugh Laurie from "House") who has shed his accent for American tv. I think that's cool.



    Don't care for Ginnifer, especially with that godawful haircut, but so far I'm tolerating her. I actually like the evil queen. I am very interested to see where her backstory leads. Who knows? we may end up feeling some empathy for her!
    I don't like her, per se, but so far I find EQ to be the most fascinating character since they've expanded on her the most. I actually felt sympathy for her until she killed her father. I also agree with whoever said that it seemed like Maleficent should have been nastier. She certainly was in "Sleeping Beauty."

    I thought I could hear Robert Carlyle's accent? Am I misremembering? You can definitely hear Jamie Dornan's (the Sheriff) Irish brogue.

    ^ I know! I keep wondering why Keira Knightley ever split up with him.
