 Good to see OUAT getting its own review.

Slight correction to your review, Geppetto agreed to make wardrobe with the caveat that Pinocchio goes with Snow White and takes Charming's place.  The situation changed later on because Emma was born ahead of time, so Pinocchio ended up taking Snow's because Geppetto didn't do what the Blue Fairy asked.

I assume you were hit up with a word count but can we get a bit more detail in the next reviews?  No mention of the whale, which was a cool scene btw, August reuniting with Geppetto at the end of the episode, Regina wanting to bang Charming, the Blue Fairy's magnificent boobs, and no mention of the Lost easter egg reference like Pinocchio spotting that Oceanic flight when he lands in America.

As to the episode itself, I liked it.  I wonder if the whale will have a Storybrooke counterpart, I know Dr.Whale has been rumored before but who knows.  I also liked that August turned out to be Pinochio, but it was kind of difficult to figure if you just based it on the rules OUAT had established (Emma had traveled alone, no Storybrooke character could leave Storybrooke), then bam they hit you this ep with, hey Pinochio left with Emma too!.

 It is silly fun.  Like Dynasty with story book characters.

There was something in this episode besides the Blue Fairy's magnicifent boobs???

Charming is a nitwit.  Of course Regina had alterior motives from the second she had car trouble.  Props to her on disabling her battery, I would have probably gone with something else.  She may have been trying to bang Charming, but we all know it was just to screw with Snow.  She knew she wasn't going to get him in the sack that easily.

Like that August turned out to be Pinocchio.  Didn't see that one coming.

I haven't read this review or comments, but I stopped watching after ep. 5 (got busy) Should I still be watching?

 Yes if you like to see the Blue Fairy's magnificent boobs.  Also, if you dig Rumplestilsken you keep watching.  You missed around 3 episodes dealing with his back story including "Skin Deep" which was a twist on Beauty & the Beast.  The series got better has it went along, so I would give it a few more eps.  At least get to The Mad Hatter episode "Hat Trick" which was pretty cool.

@ hanso re: blue fairy's boobs.  My daughter (who watches this show with me) hits me every time I comment on them.  ;)

Just saw the episode and loved it.  Yes gauley, you should be watching this series.

Mother Superior (aka the Blue Fairy) is called that in the "real" world because of her boobs, not because she is a nun...

 Just curious...they have some great CGI, but when it comes to the Blue Fairy it looks like it is straight out of H R Puffenstuff.  Those effects (not talking about her enhancements) are really distracting.  Considering that was some excellent CGI with Pinnochio and the whale.  

I'm officially addicted to the show.  I was embarrassed, but I can embrace the silliness.  They just took Lost and added in fairy tale characters.  When are they going to discover that they are all really dead?
