I know we're veering off topic, but we don't really expose our 3-yr-old to much of that, although miost if not all is in the bible. At this age, the concept of death is a tough one ot understand and action/consequence is just beginning to sink in. So we focus on the positive side of stories - there will be plenty of time for fratricide later.
I'm also well aware of the Grimm version of many fairly tales (there is a reason Disney changed the tales for an audience including Children). I like the original Grimm tales too, so perhaps "too dark" was the wrong desciption for OUaT. It's just that I'd like to see somethign go right for the good guys once in a while. Teem good has: Emma elected sherrif. Team evil has: curse enacted, Snow White/Charming split up, fairy godmother murdered, Jimmeny Crickets manipulated into murdering innocent couple in a failed attempt to murder his own parents, sherrif murdered...
