People seem to forget that all of the Disney movies are based on fairytales that are hundreds of years old. There are Cinderella tales in almost every culture for example. Frozen is based on The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson (hence why three of the characters are named Hans, Kristoff, and Anna). While the Disney movies are the jumping off point, mostly because they are more familiar to the general public than the Grimm and Anderson tales, the fairytales are the basis for the show. They did Hansel and Gretel in season one which is not a Disney movie, nor is Little Red Riding Hood. They are fairytales. Yes some of their characters are very obviously taken from the movies (Belle, and Ariel) and it seems Elsa will be the same. I wish they had done The Princess and The Frog/Tiana, The Princess and the Pea, or even The 12 Dancing Princesses before Frozen though. I was kind of hoping they'd go to another world like Agrabah since they touched on that (but not Aladdin or Jasmine) in Wonderland or maybe even Narnia since they went to Oz. For a second I thought maybe it was the White Witch forming from the blue goo stuff. But like others have said, it's a smart move on their part. I'm actually pretty excited to see a real life version of Anna; she's so spunky and different from all of the other characters on the show.
My favorite part was the guys coming to Dawson's rescue so that she could get to her test! How many candidates can say they were escorted to their test via fire truck?
Yes thank you for pointing that out. I keep coming back hoping things have changed and they sadly haven't.
Thank you! I can't believe no one else mentioned that! His face when he heard she was there and then how he pushed through to get to her and hug her!
I knew the bomb was coming from the previews but I still jumped when it happened. In the case of Burgess' sister not answering her phone, I wonder if she was even able to get through. In a city like Chicago I can imagine that when a tragedy such as that happens it would effect communication. Everyone in that city was probably trying to get a hold of someone. And who knows what the explosion did to service around there. I live in Maryland and when the earthquake happened a few years ago we were without cell service for about an hour after it happened. I did keep waiting for Ruzek to show up and console Burgess though. My only issue with the episode was how long it took for the Chicago PD gang to show up, as well as the absence of Olinsky and Ruzek.
The description of the show felt too melodramatic, soap opera, teen movie to me and the pilot didn't change that opinion at all. The concept is interesting; the execution too much like some of the other shows on The CW. The only character I was interested in was David. He was funny and interesting. Violet, the Juliet to his Romeo, was only interesting when she nearly killed the guy for hurting David.
I'm glad I'm not the only one wondering why the brother Joshua hasn't been mentioned. I can understand not having him on the show but not to mention it at all? It makes no sense.
I agree with some of the others, I only wish Sally had been in it more. The kids at the end were perfect, even more so because Sam Witwer said on twitter that they were Sam Huntington's kids.
I say no only because it's basically the same show. However I agree with joyeful, if it has a set number of seasons and a set plan and direction, I'll check it out. They would really have to change things up though to make it interesting and not just Ted's story in female form.
Just chiming in with everyone else. We have no idea if Black Canary is Sarah yet. Please don't state it as if it is fact.
