    The Once Upon A Time story plot is getting so complicated, not just with all the new characters, but also with all of the additional baggage of more and more interactions between the various fairy tales. Some people I have talked with say that with all of the flash backs that occur, they lose track of who’s on first base, so to speak.

    Once Upon a Time is adding more and more characters, a mistake many programs, like ER, made. You can’t have a good story with only a few minutes here and there devoted to it. Stick with the original characters and develop their story line.

    I agree, tired of the red john storyline, lets get down to storylines about murder, tired of red john after the second season, this show is doomed if it keeps going in this direction.

    DVR’d Revenge because of all the football games. Watched Mentalist, but I’m having a problem with the show this season. Janes’s character is going overboard with the Red John story line. It is becoming too much and tiresome. His idea Sunday of breaking into the Federal Maximum security facility is baloney and unreal. They need to get back to the way the series was before and the Sunday schedule after football is a death wish for the show. The station did the same to CSI Miami.

    Is it sad that this show got me so back into mentalism that I wrote a blog about it? LOL A lot of people are getting ripped off trying to perform these tricks themselves. It’s very interesting what this show is doing to the world.

    Revenge & 666 Park Avenue, two of my favorites, probably saw a drop due to it being Veteran’s Day and those watchers either watched shows based on the day or were not home to watch it due to the day’s events. Ratings should wait for the DVR’s to show the TRUE ratings.
