    I just want to make the point that, while Disney is the mothership and owns ABC, the show isn't being made by Disney Studios, it is being made by ABC, with an ABC TV show budget, not a Disney movie budget.

    I have no idea what the budget is for this show, but I'm willing to bet, given ABC's not terribly stellar performance over the last few years, that it isn't a big one.

And gloo feathers all over it!" and no care was given in the making of the costumes either, they look like they were made with cheap materials by students.
      Uhm, just noticed, its Disney so what do you expect from a bunch of Birds and Mice?

        Actually ABC doesn't do that bad. Its the middle station only a little behind FOX. CBS outshines them all though. As for the Disney/ABC thing its a gray area. Depends on how technical you want to get. More importantly when will Henry stop annoying me?

              That makes us three. I actually think he is cute in a very annoying way, so I have faith that his Character may still grow on me once he got some development beyond "Fairytales are real".

                Just watched the most recent episode. Perhaps this show is not meant for me. The whole soap opera element does not work for me.

                I also find the fairy tale world interesting, but the modern world, not so much. That and twins?! Really?

                  Me four!!! Although I have to agree with your comments about him. He, along with the rest of the cast, with the exception of Carlyle's gleeful portrayal of Rumpestiltskin have a long way to go to make me care even a little about them.

                  That whole scene, hunting the dragon at his cave, I couldn't stop laughing, all I could think of was this

                  As for the CGI and costumes I think it's done on purpose, to look like the story book illustrations of years gone by. They do remind me of the pictures in fairy tale books I had as a child. Many things in the fairy tale world are filmed in crisp focus and bright colours to emphasise the happy lives that have been lost to the curse,whilst the 'real life' of 'Storybrooke' makes use of the brooding bluish Vancouver light to emphasize that oppressive trapped feel of the town. I wonder if the sun starts to come out more as the curse weakens.

                      You know, I have no idea. I mean, I can come up with half a dozen different scenarios for an ending, and really, they could go with any of them and I'm sure make it work.

                      I sort of love that I can't see the end-game yet. I sooooo hope we eventually get it (my heart has been broken with premature cancellations enough times!).

                        What I really would love to see is both Worlds being connected after the Curse is broken. At least Henry belongs more to the real world as he does to Fairy Tale World.

                                Spoiler:
                                At the beginning I was thinking that I might just start to care for Regina, not anymore. That Egomaniacal Witch remembers it all! I have the strong wish to see her dead now. Damn, I should have known that its to good to be true that she didnt know. I just hope Emma will understand soon that Henry is telling the truth.
