"Because believing in the possibility of a happy ending is a very powerful thing"
There are so many reasons I watch this series, the main one is because the motion picture industry is cashing in on evil. The bad guys or girls are promoted over the hero's more often than not and it just feels wrong. It's not every situation or all consuming but the subtle change has me wanting to focus on a show that takes the focus on making heroes out of everyone. "If it's one thing I've learned from you hero types is that there's always hope" - Captain Hook. That the evil Queen's soul mate is Robin Hood is such a wonderful and not unusual twist of simple fate. The daughter born of true love between Snow White and Prince Charming grew up an orphan and is now the 'savior' and is disillusioned of love, but has caught the eye of a pirate... storybook material for sure.
