Anyone else watching this show?

I love it!! The acting is brilliant and I am loving the story. If you haven't seen it you should!

Yeah, I made a thread a week or two ago about it. Just loving it, and I'm watching it with my two oldest DDs so it's nice to have a show suitable to watch together. I love trying to guess who might be who and I love seeing more and more of the 'back' story of the characters come out.

Yes me!  biggrin.gif   I love it too, I love that there is so much in each ep and trying to put together who is who from the fairytale world and the real world.  By far one of the best new shows in a while, I wonder when it might get show in free to air here, not til next feb I would guess.

Oh I must have missed your thread. I did have a look but couldn't find anything.

I love trying to guess too and I think the little boy Henry is a great actor for his age! I love how different it is from a lot of the TV shows coming out now. It's just a really great story with an awesome cast.

LOL SNAP Franklet, we just said much the same thing.

Who do you think the sheriff is from the Fairytale world?  I have been reading elsewhere that some think he might be the Big Bad Wolf!

Me!  waves.gif

I only started this week as all my usual shows have been on Thanksgiving break. I thought I'd download all the episodes that have aired and give it a go.

Anyway, I've watched them all and am eagerly awaiting for the next episode.  biggrin.gif

I thought maybe the doctor was the Big Bad Wolf by the way he was perving on Ruby (who I assume is Little Red Riding Hood)

I love this show, it's our new favourite.

I think the Sheriff is the huntsman who didn't bring the heart of Snow White to the Queen when he was told to.

#9 Scootaloo

Posted 23 November 2011 - 08:01 PM

I thought it made more sense for him to be the huntsman too but this person came up with some pretty convincing arguments like he was right there when Emma nearly hit the wolf and a few other fine points that I hadn't picked up on.

That's what my friend suggested too, because he's manipulated by the Queen but is still a good guy!

I love this show (and the huntsman/Sherrif- ding dong!). I think it's really clever and amazing effects. We are waiting impatiently for the next episode.

Its an awesome show. So fresh! I hadn't thought of the sheriff being the hunter. I was disappointed when I saw him climbing out of her hotel room. I suspected but was hoping it wasn't so. I love that back stories.

I didn't like that Prince Charming is already married. It means his wife either has to become an evil villain, therefore its ok to dump her or she gets hurt.

I actually wondered whether the Queen paid her off to pretend to be his wife!

that's what I thought aswell.

Cant work out the sheriff either, wondering if he's a good guy the Mayor is manipulating, or a bad guy pretending to be good so he can spy on Emma and Henry and keep them from discovering too much

I thought the wife was the same blonde he was engaged to in fairytale land, before he met Snow. I'm confused, now!

Oh, and I definitely think the Sheriff is the Huntsman! I think Big Bad Wolf is simply the wolf we've seen. I think the doc is Doc, but being manipulated by Regina.

Yeah I'm thinking it makes more sense that the wolf is the wolf, didn't even make a Doc/Doctor connection  blush.gif

The wife was the same blonde he was engaged to in Fairy Tail land but I just think there is something fishy about it in this reality- I think she was paid to fake being married or something. The story just didn't sit right!

The more I read the more I am convinced the Sheriff is the Huntsman. The Sheriffs in some European places had to swear allegiance and loyalty to the Queen so that may be a connection. He also said that stuff about spending a lot of time in the woods (though that could imply woodcutter as well I suppose)

Just watched the new episode. I really enjoyed "Jiminy's" back story.

Trying to figure out what it was in the mine though! I think it was the glass coffin?

I've seen it advertised in the comics I read, but haven't checked it out yet.

A very awesome TV show.
It's not in Australia yet but it comes out on Sundays in America (so Mondays for us)!

If I recall, correctly, Sleeping Beauty was housed in a glass coffin. Could be important! biggrin.gif

#22 **Xena**

Posted 29 November 2011 - 09:32 AM

I was actually thinking Snow White's glass coffin that the dwarves made for her. Especially being that it was in a mine.

Gah, I'm waiting on Episode 5 to download... can't wait! Have really been loving this show - am liking Grimm also to the PP who mentioned that one. All the characters are fantastic and I think the whole thing has been really cleverly done.
Come on internet!!

#24 kpingitquiet

Posted 29 November 2011 - 09:47 AM

Snow White's coffin was my other guess but iI wasn't sure it fit with how they've told her story, so far. It's so hard to tell which way they're going to take the stories, though! There's some traditional, some sampling from Disney, some entirely made up. So tough to tell!

I think it was the pilot that opened with snow white in her coffin and being kissed by the prince and then cutting to their wedding and the queens curse.
