    So if you have a new HD TV, you can do this, if not, you need another TV to watch 2.

    I do this with just basic free electric-plug-in-the-wall TV. No pay service at all. I do have a dandy HD antenna.
    Hmm, we don't have an HD TV yet, that'll be interesting. On the other hand we don't have antenae any more--there's no broadcast TV here, only cable.

    Back to OUAT---do you think that's the only appearance of Wendy and bros? Just as a brief explanation of how Bae got to Nevernever Land?

    Nope, the last two episodes titles indicate that the back story will continue.

    If it wasn't, that opens up another fine kettle of fish! We know Regina kept her victims hearts in her vault, but what did she do with their bodies? We they all turned to ash?

    I think the bones were his dad's. Why on earth would Regina have wanted to keep him alive? He'd be too much trouble & too dangerous to keep alive. Killing him was her logical choice. The only reason she allowed the boy to escape is that she developed a soft spot for him. If he had been forced to stay, he'd have to have been killed too.

    I'm curious as to how all the open ended storylines will be sufficiently wrapped up in just 1 hour next week. There's an awful lot of territory to cover.
    I'm afraid that we're going to have a whole bunch of cliffhangers, not just 1. Kind of like they just run out of time or film & just stop cold wherever they are.

    That would make me mad. I want some degree of wrap up. A cliffhanger like last year's is fine, but too many wide open ends is irritating.

    Ethan Embry (Greg) was on a podcast I listened to today that was taped after Sundays show aired, and he says the last ep is VERY fast paced, so we may get a lot of things tied up with pretty little bows. He didnt give any spoiler info tho (darn it!)

    My husband is done with this show. I'm thinking that I should follow his lead. But after the finale...

    I know I can re-route the cables to tape on another channel but, like I mentioned, my picture quality suffers A LOT when I do. I'm not willing to do that. I'd rather watch OnDemand or online.

    Ellen, I can identify with you and your husband! I'm close to done with this show as well. I just find myself bored with it. Things move too slowly and everyone seems to be reacting to events rather than DOING something. Plus, the constant addition of various fairy tale or just plain Disney characters is starting to feel more gimmicky than organic.....and yes, I realize how silly it sounds to use the word "organic" to describe a show like this!

    I think I'm definitely taping the finale, if there's going to be that much action, just so I can catch all of it....

    I hear you all on the loss of interest. I'm at least a couple of episodes behind, and I kinda don't care. Sad, since I was so passionate about it last year.
