In addition to the problems already mentioned, the biggest problem for me is that the characters are no longer relatable or engaging. I simply do not care about them anymore. If any of the mains died, I wouldn’t be able to muster any emotion. The problem is twofold. First, they don’t behave like real people would, which makes it hard to relate to anyone. Poor writing, PLOT etc – we’ve discussed all of this at length at some time or another. The second problem is the lack of diversity in the group. I’m not just talking in terms of race, sexuality, age etc. They even think alike – witness all of them heading off to the Underworld with Emma, leaving babies and young children behind because “that’s what heroes do”.
I haven’t watched any episodes since ‘Heartless’ and I’m struggling to stick with OUAT. I doubt I’ll still be watching by the end of S6.
