Once Upon A Time - Anybody watch this?

With all the "doomed before they start" shows that networks roll out year after year, I was skeptical about how this one would fare. But I guess the ratings have been pretty solid, and it's likely to be renewed. Considering the fickle nature of today's television market, it was nice to see something so imaginitive be given a chance, and even more encouraging to see it doing well. I don't know if it's having Disney behind it that made a difference, but to me it's been a pleasant example of a fresh idea being done right. Just curious if anybody else has watched it and what they've thought.

Also, the recent episode with Red Riding Hood's backstory was really good, and had a great twist. I wondered if they were going to be able to hold their own against the Amanda Seyfried movie, and they did pretty well. My wife wondered why Red Riding Hood had to be so "slut-tastic", and I said "Well, after Amanda Seyfried, what choice do they have?" haha.
I have wanted to check out Grimm though. How much does that actually have to do with its namesake? The show description just mentioned a homicide detective and "supernatural" events.

Yeah the changes made to some of the origin stores are actually kinda cool. And Robert Carlyle is awesome.
Haha, indeed he is. I find myself waiting for his creepy ass laugh in every scene he's in. My wife refers to him as Gollum, lol.
We're like two episodes behind, but we're watching it. I liked the Beauty and the Beast part. It was a little unexpected, but it was still like, "Well, duh, that makes sense."
That's what I like about the writing...the way they tie all the stories together, you can tell some thought went into it. As opposed to the "throw a bunch of shit at the wall and see what sticks" approach that a lot of shows have nowadays.
I figured this would be a show that a lot of people would overlook...either because they expect it to be bad or they thought it looked corny. With the finale coming up, I was just wondering how many people it could draw in. I'd definitely recommend anybody at least give it a look.
