So far I am intrigued by Wonderland and am waiting to see whats going to come, but it does not look so well.

    As far as Storybrook being in the begging, I really liked that touch and it shows it is in the same World after the Curse happened. So Reginas Mother was already back in the enchanted forest giving enough time for the new Queen to take power.
    I actually haven't finished Kingdom Hearts, the game came out not long before i stopped playing video games for awhile, but i want to get into it again next year But this series (ahem franchise) reminds me abit of KH obviously you wouldnt be able to have square-enix characters but it might be cool as a alternate reality kind of thing

    BTW i believe this story was designed as a one season only affair, so i don't think we should really be worrying about cancellation even tho its not doing so good why not just let it run its course eh?

    Spoiler:
    As for Cora if she is meant to be in this i'm guessing its going to be flashbacks of her againts the red queen, as cora was presumably killed in the parent show's second season (i say presumably because of the tone of the show she could probably come back at some point

    Why shouldnt there appear one or two Square Enix Characters to represent their World? I know their Artstyle is in General not fitting for Storybrook or Wonderland, but at least Squall would be a possibility.

    I actually thought of squall after i posted his my favorite final fantasy character to so i think that would be pretty cool

    But they would need to get liscencing for him, but i guess they would probably need to get liscencing rights for the KH universe to to appear aswell so why not?

    Doesn't sound like many people like this show that much, I think I might stop watching and when I Google'd the ratings everything I found wasn't good.

    Once Upon A Time In Wonderland premiered to a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating on Thursday at 8pm, 23% below the premiere of also canceled Last Resort last season, tapping it as certain to be canceled. The Cancellation Bear will dine on Alice and friends by the end of the season, maybe sooner.

    At least part of the problem is the time slot it's in. Thursday nights at 8:00 have not been good for shows that have premiered there. At least three other shows have been in that slot in the past couple of years and all have been cancelled in their first season.

    The problem with that is moving a successful show from its timeslot. If I am network executive it doesn't make sense to move a proven show to make way for a new shiw

    Although the time slot has nothing to do with how I feel about the show.

    Yeah I gotcha.

    I've never watched Revenge. As my life gets busier I find the bar keeps getting raised for tv programs as I don't have as much time to watch tv. I think this show has been the first to hit the chopping block for me this season. Tomorrow People only got 1 episode, but I was less committed.

    And apparently Whoopie Goldberg has been signed to be the voice of the White Rabbit's wife.

    Didn't Goldberg do the Cheshire Cat in 1999?

    I think if Robin Hood and the Knave come across each other again down the road, Robin will have to apologize for his behavior in calling him out on stealing for personal reasons. The Knave stole for the love of his life. In one of OUAT, S2 episodes, Robin stole from Rumple in order to save his own pregnant wife, who was very ill. Apparently Robin decided that stealing for personal reasons is occasionally allowed.

    They told me that the Red Queen appeared in the continuation of Alice in Wonderland (Through the Looking-Glass) so that is the reason why there are two different queens (Red Queen and Queen of Hearts).

    I watched last night's episode, and found it a bit more interesting than previous episodes. We got a back story on Jafar, and I must say he certainly made a change from who he was before acquiring magical powers. I think he and Regina ought to have some scenes together just to see which one can out-evil the other.

    I'm not impressed so far with the actress who plays Alice. She doesn't seem to have much of a range of expressions when expressing emotions. Seems as though the Red Queen is much better with the facial expressions. She seems able to have no expression on her face and I could still tell what she was thinking. To be able to do that with just the slight facial expression is quite good.

    I couldn't figure out why the Knave seemed so anxious for the queen to cut off his head. Was he that anxious to die, or did he really think she'd call it off at the last second?
