We are all entitled to our individual opinions ..

Jennifer Morrison, if you had been watching the show, plays a bail bonds collector and I'm sure she is quite familiar with weapons ..

Just watched this weeks episode. As been noted, the queen was ssssssmokin' hot. Who was the actor playing Hansel & Gretel's dad? He looked so familiar but I just couldn't place it. I wanna say he was on a season of 24.

Yeah +1
Some ppl just look better dressed to the hilt- and Lana Parrilla seems to be perfect in those elaborate (modern take on) period pieces.
There's a few photos of her in the "blue buttons" outfit on IMDB today: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0663469/mediaindex
Wow.....

Another mystery arrival. I had to look twice before I realized who plays him. Thats Eion Bailey who played Pvt. David Webster in Band of Brothers.

Krycek! Nice call. Those were the days. Even when I saw him on V I didn't connect the X-Files dots. The ol' brain-housing-group ain't what she used to be.

You gotta like being them right about now. It's too bad they don't get any actual respect for it.

When NBC dominates, it's "Must See TV". When CBS dominates, it's "because of all those useless old people...."

It is nice to see the alphabet channel has at least a few shows in the top 20 - even if they're at the low end of the list.

Fox kind of drops off the map when they don't have a show running with Simon Cowell on it.

^^^ Picture quality wise I'm quite happy with that. I tend to watch a lot of CBS and in my market CBS is by far the best looking network. ABC also looks quite good which is good for OUAT(and other ABC programs I watch). I don't watch much FOX which is good because IMO FOX probably has the worst looking HD in my market.
Works out quite good for me
Oh PQ wise NBC is probably on par or a tat better than ABC but like FOX I just don't find myself watching a lot of NBC....

Good episode last night. I don't remember if it was Emma or Snow that picked up a candy bar in the store it was an Apollo bar from the Dharma initiative from Lost?

I believe Jiminy Cricket, aka the Doc, gave Henry an Apollo candy bar before going into the hatch, er I mean mine shaft. But I spaced out the Lost connection until you mentioned it.

Real good show last night with great editing. The jump cuts between the two venues were flawless. It was nice to see "Red" without the very heavy makeup that she sports as the waitress. She's a natural beauty.

Shhhh. Don't let the suits at ABC hear you. Quality shows that many of us like (Eli Stone, Dirty, Sexy Money) seem to get cancelled just as they catch some wind in their sails.

I don't think they deserve respect for being excessively unimaginative and pandering to the mediocre and bland tastes of viewers. It might sit well in a quarterly but I have no interest in their finances.

You only have to look at their roster. Generic sitcoms and cop show after cop show after cop show. The most ambitious drama they have is on Sunday night where it's regularly screwed over by football and even that is still a lawyer show which is only one step away from being a cop show.

Wake me up when CBS decides to dare to make something along the lines of Friday Night Lights, Lost, Supernatural, The Office or even Once.

I actually thought this episode was a little weak. Nothing seemed to happen and seemed to be more of a love story. No real progression in anything good.

Also, when Snow White stepped out to save the dwarf, are we seriously suppose to believe that everyone was terrified she was going to drop a torch in a small pile of straw, surrounded by solid brick/stone? Oooohhh, surprised they didn't give her the keys to the kingdom, they must of been terrified by the small fire it would of made. Kind of lame.

Overall, the weakest episode of the season.
