I. Love. It! grin

Really, really well done, I thought.

I think I may be Rumpelstiltskin.

Is it messing with anyone else's head that Hook is erm . . . Well you know . . . Fit!!

We're watching trying to guess who the Character of the week is.

Seeing as we have just had Frankenstein, I wonder when Anne of Green Gables will turn up.

CalamityKate Mon 06-May-13 09:51:41

Tom Ellis is going to be playing Robin Hood. He said so on Celebrity Juice.

Hook is delicious.

I thought it was fairy tales but is it just any story in general? Frankenstein isn't a fairy tale, and if Robin Hood appears well then that's a myth so it seems like any story can be incorporated.

But I can sort of see how Robin Hood might fit, but really not Frankenstein.

Hook is very .... Fit and the Tom Ellis news has just made my day.

I'm glad this thread has re-appeared (I'm on it with my old name actually). I'm enjoying it, although Frankenstein was a bit...weird. There are several fairytale characters I can think of that we haven't had yet.

Actually, I suppose it's Disney characters (has there been a Disney Frankenstein?), that's why we're having Robin Hood (not as a fox though, but I'm definitely not complaining grin). Actually, I thought Aurora's Prince was very handsome. I was quite sad they killed him off so quickly.

Also, there are a few bits from last series I want to know. What did happen to Abigail/Catherine and the P.E. teacher? Did we ever find out what had happened to Cinderella's prince who went to the well and never returned? Has Jefferson put a bit of weight on?

And is Cora the Queen who outwitted Rumplestiltskin by finding out his name? There was something mentioned the other week which made me wonder...

mixedmamameansbusiness Thu 09-May-13 19:34:08

Ohhhh yes, that is interesting about Cora being the Queen. I couldn't believe there wasn't a thread, so glad it was found.

Rumpelstiltskin I think I am in love! Regina; does anyone else feel sorry for her?

CalamityKate Fri 10-May-13 08:37:35

Me too. And yes!

CalamityKate Fri 10-May-13 08:39:00

There's definitely something about Robert Carlisle. His bearing or the way he moves or something. As Rumpel I mean.

mummytime Fri 10-May-13 09:36:30

Frankenstein - came from "another world" to Regina (via the hat). So they could draw in any story via the "other worlds", which Hook can travel to on his ship, as can Edwin via the Hat.

mixedmamameansbusiness Fri 10-May-13 10:20:28

Yes, I suppose that makes sense. I do feel a little sorry for Regina now. I don't like him as Gold but as scaly Rumpel - I realise I may be weird.

mixedmamameansbusiness Sun 12-May-13 15:56:30

Bump in readiness for tonight.

8pm

In that red room with the flaming curtains, do we think the lady Henry sees could be Aurora?

I'm trying to think of a fairytale where people are in each other's dreams but nothing's springing to mind, other than Beauty and the Beast when he's dying, so probably not that. Actually, I want to know what's happening with Gold and Belle and the library, I like their story.

diddl Mon 13-May-13 22:29:54

Who do we think that Neal is going to be?

The scruffy hair seems familiar, but can't quite think.

PolkadotsAndMoonbeams Tue 21-May-13 09:05:29

I was right smile

Dodgy CGI wolves though!

HairpinsAndLacquer Mon 17-Jun-13 10:57:14

Anybody still watching? Last night's was good wasn't it?

I do like Belle, I think she's one of the most interesting. sad about the ending though.

I'm glad we had a bit more of Philip, he's very good looking grin

Quaffle Mon 12-Aug-13 18:19:03

I'm still loving this.

Who is Tamara??????

sneezecakesmum Mon 12-Aug-13 19:38:51

I've watched it from the very beginning and its weirdly logical and crazy at the same time. Love it. I tape everything with adverts so I can whizz through them! Not sure who Tamara is, there are so many characters....especially as they are duplicated, one for fairytale land and one for storybrook. grin

Reality Mon 12-Aug-13 19:41:11

Tamara is just human and knows about magic I think.

Just like Mark from Empire Records, they've both accidentally stumbled on it. He wasnt to find his dad but I think she's just eeeeevil.

Quaffle Mon 12-Aug-13 19:42:51

I go from hating Regina to feeling sorry for her, to hating her again..... I actually cried when August was redeemed and he and his dad got their chance again blush

Quaffle Mon 12-Aug-13 19:44:19

....and I have to say I have NEVER seen a more convincing likeness as there is between Snow and her younger self! Genius casting!

Reality Mon 12-Aug-13 20:00:18

Wants, by the way, not wasnt.

Regina is an absolutely brilliant character. I love the fact no one's really bad through and through, they all have reasons for evilness.

I'm glad August and his dad were back in it last night though, I was wondering if they'd just been forgotten.

sneezecakesmum Tue 13-Aug-13 20:02:25

ooo its so interveaving grin Ditto re regina going from good to evil again! I love the way the characters are not one dimensional despite being for fairy tales.

Is Hook good or bad? Is he the 'one' or will it be neal?
