So while everyone is complaining about the CGI I thought it was brilliant lol. It was meant to be that way: kind of cartoonish and whimsical. The creators of this show have proven on Once that they can do good enough CGI. Why all of a sudden would they have forgotten how to? Exactly! They didn't because it was like that on purpose. I really loved this show. Alice is an amazing lead and the chemistry between her and Cyrus was great. I love that her and the Knave are going to be strictly friends because they have great chemistry as well, I'm just not in the mood for a love triangle. The ONLY two complaints I have about this show are: 1. I don't like the Queen of Hearts casting. She is no Cora. How did she possibly get control? 2. The Knave was in present day Storybrook (or at least SB of however long ago Emma showed up) yet Alice was living in what appeared to be late 1800s/early 1900s England? What is with the timeline discrepancy there? Is the rabbits hole a portal not only to other dimensions but other periods of time? Also, what it is it about the residents of Wonderland that allowed them to retain their memories when they went to SB (first the Mad Hatter now the Knave)? Would really like those two questions explored more! But really love this show. Hoping that Jafar's presence means a possible Aladdin/Jasmine intro (crossing fingers!!!)
loved the episode. once upon a time does it again. it was perferct (despite the horrible cg). love alive, waaay better than emma, was curious that they didnt have her write her last namd liddle when she signed for permission for the operation. a lot of questions i so want answered yesterday. i was under the impression that the mirror was the genie from aladdin seeing as he is from akkrabah but could it be cyrus instead? what twist in the story of aladdin landed cyrus and jafar in wonderland? jafar is obviously more powerful than the red queen so how did she rise to power and what is her history with alice? great casting and a fun ride all around
What a disappointment. Bad casting as well as bad acting. CGI subpar. GO back and start over.
What the previous three said. Donning my "Mckayla Maroney is NOT impressed face."
Quite disappointed with this:
- Overuse of bad CGI.
- Disjointed frantic plot. With A LOT of cheese.
- Logic-defying character decisions and stupidity.
The only good parts seem to be Jaffar/Red Queen plotlines(even if both of them give off the vibe of power rangers villains right now, visually) and the fact that the whole thing( especially Aliceâ€™s character as they seem to be touching upon what being locked in freaking mental asylum does to you) seems to be HEAVILY inspired by Alice:Madness Returns.
Otherwise, REALLY disappointed.
I wasn't impressed at all with the Premier of "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland". The acting is sub-par and the graphics are something you would see on like "Blues Clues" that children's show that plays early in the mornings. I will watch it once more and decide whether or not the keep it in the shows to watch. I'm on the fence with "Once Upon a Time" too. I was excited about this season with Once Upon a Time, but it too is falling flat.
It was terrible. It is not worth watching.
I will have to say I did not feel the chemistry between Cyrus and Alice at all. I was rooting more for the friendship of Knave and Alice then the romance of Cyrus and Alice. I also thought that they was portraying Jafar and Red Queen as the wonderland version of Rumple and Regina but Jafar and Red Queen do not have that much chemistry. Also, it seems the Red Queen is too terrify of Jafar to be consider a villain. I like that Knave was considering a life in SB. I will be tuning in next week in the hopes that they can make me like all the characters because so far I only like Alice and Knave and root for Cyrus and Alice. Although I did like the Red Queen wardrobe it is not like Evil Queen on OUAT.
