I like that about us too. It’s healthy to be able to look at a scene and poke fun of it and at the same time analyze the hook out of it.
fyi, I am going to Las Vegas tomorrow for a one week vacation. I should be able still to view the forums since I’ll be bringing my Mac with me. And I’ll definitely have my iPhone with me. It rings when there’s a new post on the forums.
but in case I’ll be too busy, I just wanted to say I’ll be thinking of you all.
Have/hope you had an awesome time 😀
Hope you all are enjoying the holiday weekend with something fun and peaceful!
Thanks for that quote/link callmeLola…it is always good to see people appreciate what we have felt all along!
Just a side comment during the hiatus when lifestyles, summer, realities take us away from the concentrated attention to OUAT…I find that other than the camaraderie of fellow Hooksters, Emmites, CaptainSwanners here, many times I enjoy the show so much more when it isn’t cluttered with the persistent hate and pettiness of so many Internet dwellers who want to do nothing but complain and suck the life out of everything when things don’t go as they envisioned, dreamed, hoped.
General viewers and non-Internet-addicted (grin) Oncers have very little problem with what is going on and can enjoy the show for exactly what it is…escapism entertainment with tons of imagination!…and a damn good looking cast (grin). The general consensus of those real life Oncers in my work force and public contact has been one of looking forward to the fall and the introduction of Elsa.
The biggest detriment to the show is not lapses of consistency in writing nor faulty plot lines or (fill in the blank with any words insinuating pandering) It is the pungent killjoy attitude of viewers and posters who can’t embrace anything but negativity no matter what. Nothing will be good enough for those types.
Colin’s Hook has grown immensely in character yet has (thanks to Colin’s talent) maintained his charm, appeal and passion along the way. He’s an original. I have gone through many stages of Captain Hook performances over the years, and each one has been quite unique. There is no one definition. Just more to enjoy.
And I for one WILL enjoy whatever new adventures other creative minds create for my entertainment
I love that Once’s Captain Hook is different from previous portrayals. I’ve never viewed the character of Hook as “sexy”.
It used to be when I thought of Hook, he was exactly how Emma described him in Quite the Common Fairy. That cliche interpretation just wasn’t sexy.
But more than that, I love how layered Hook is here on Once. He’s like Rumple where we’ve seen him at different stages of his life and each phase, he has a different personality.
I don’t think I would enjoy the character as much if he was the same pirate we knew from Disney. He’d still be fun to watch but I don’t think Captain Swan wouldn’t have caught on as it did.
Agree with both of these posts.
