    Anyone else watch this show? I find it to be extremely cheesy -- it's so beyond cheese, but I can't get enough! Not to mention Josh Dallas and Jamie Dornan as Prince Charming and the Huntsman, who are just gorgeous human beings.

    I do. I love the evil queen. Her character feels so tragic.
    And yes, the huntsman is very handsome. icon_razz.gif

    I think we have about 4 episodes on our DVR that we just haven't gotten around to watching. The first couple of episodes were sorta meh.

    Grimm is so much better.

    I have been watching it and am really into it. What do you guys think will be the fate of the Huntsman?

    I love this show. They way they weave between our world and the fairy tale world is done quite well. And Prince Charming and the Huntsman make for some good distractions. icon_redface.gif

    I can't wait to see what is yet to come.

    They even show where all the characters in fairy tale land got their beginings. Rumplestiltskin wasnt always conniving, Snow is not so pure, the Prince is not who others claim he is, even Jiminy Cricket started out as a person.

    I really like it, has seen 6 out of 7 episodes so far. Sure there is a lot to behold in the man candy department, but my favorite character is Rumpelstinkin.

    Favorite scene so far: the two evil wiches been friendly-mean to each other. icon_evil.gif

    I didn't like them killing the sexy police office/huntsman. The romance was just budding.

    I actually hope to see redemption on the queen's part. There's so much sadness in her expressions.

    Meh. Too many plotlines scattered about, none of them make any sense. Emma is just kind of there, Henry is just annoying and nobody pays attention to him, the Queen as Mayor is just unrealistic, and the whole thing is just disjointed.

    I wish they'd have more fairytale time, and less modern time.

    Grimm succeeds in this area, where the adaptions of older fairytales into modern versions are done successfully, realistically, and in a very dark and sometimes gruesome manner.

    OUaT is failing majorly in this department (which is the reason why you have it set in a fantasy world), and has tons of plotholes everywhere, and we never seem to make any headway in the storyline. Although the most recently development was good (people dying is always good. See: A Song of Fire and Ice: See: Ned Stark)

    I feel that as the show progress it presents better character development and just the right amount of cheese to keep the two main plot lines moving along nicely. And plus the Huntsman and Prince Charming are two reasons on their own for never missing an episode.

    i feel this show is like a katy perry album embodied... manufactured pop trash at its best, a guilty pleasure that lacks significant quality on just about ever facet, and appeals to the masses... i.e., it's stupid but people like it so whatevs icon_rolleyes.gif

    Why are you always so negative about everything? We get it, you're so above everyone else, we're just stupid clones but you are a special snowflake. icon_rolleyes.gif

    correct me if i'm wrong, but didn't you try to defend to star power of britney spears by actually arguing that because shonda rhimes (who is a joke in the industry by the way) wrote a movie for her (the disasterpiece called crossroads), and thus proved your point? disliking things that, to put it blunty, suck donkey balls isn't being negative or thinking you're better than other people. i don't think i'm better because i don't eat at mc donald's, buy j-lo cds, or watch cliche and/or contrived tv shows; i think my tastes are better as in ask any james beard winning chef to eat mc donald's, ask a professional sound designer to listen to j-lo, or ask the creators of the wire to watch once upon a time. do i have guilty pleasures? of course i do. but i don't think for a second quality shines through in them. so if you are going to continue feeding the industry that produces this garbage, then i'll continue to express my opinion against it because that's how consumer democracy works, i.e., if all the people like me shut up, then all we'd have on tv is desperate housewives. by they way, try substituting periods for those commas; comma splices are like wrinkles.

    I never defended Britney since I don't like her, so you are indeed wrong! And are you talking to me about grammar? You don't capitalize anything!! icon_rolleyes.gif

    Btw TL;DR .
