    Same feeling. I like Once Upon a Time, but I don't know that it needs a spinoff. All it does is split the story-pool between two shows... and I don't know that it bodes well for longterm success of either series.

    For comparison...

    Years ago the Superman comic had the same writer on two different comics... and that comic went bi-weekly during the summer... so the writer left the title a couple of years earlier than he intended... and he said basically that working on two books he had burnt through all his ideas much quicker and wanted to leave on a high note. The same guy would have stayed on a single book twice as long.

    Supposedly Alice in Wonderland was partially base around drugs of its time period.

    Someone needs to shame me somehow into stop watching this.
    I have no kids or wife and I can only think that it is the duck lipped red queen that keeps me going here.
    Even Lithgow as a rabbit is not enough. But why do I keep watching this crappy show?

    HELP!!

    I never started it. Alice in Wonderland was never a book or story I cared for. But I love Once Upon a Time! My daughter and I watch it every week.

    Almost a ditto here.

    But I find it entertaining enough to keep watching it live as there is nothing else on at its time slot that I like.

    Sophie Lowe was fantastic in "The Slap". And I was looking forward to seeing her in this, but she's badly miscast and the entire show is a silly mishmosh of preposterous twaddle.

    Please. Tell us how you really feel :)

    I find this show better than say the shopping channel and a bit more entertaining than the local news broadcasts but it is too dark and not quite done right. Not sure what would fix it either. They had a hit with Once Upon a Time, Great! Don't try to spin off near clones and expect the same response.

    I would write in a pack of cannibalistic elves attacking the kingdom. . . fade to bloated elves napping about the landscape, roll series end credits
