    Why isn't this episode available any more when episode 19 is still available for 3 more days? Seriously doesn't make sense.

    I love Once Upon a Time. Its brilliant. Baby Emma is simply adorable. agree with comments on here though about the terrible service we get on here though, I had lots of problems last night but seems to be working today.

    It would be nice to have some sort of notice if the Play button is not working on ANY of your videos, Demand Five. I would also suggest a download option, like BBC iPlayer have for their videos. This would probably help the terrible buffering / freezing problem with every episode I have tried to watch on here so far. Honestly, it took me around 5 hours to watch the entirety of a one-hour episode yesterday, please please PLEASE do something to fix these issues. I am clearly not the only one with these problems, judging by all the other similar comments on this board.

    Is anyone actually bothered about what is posted on here? I cannot get this to work because there is no PLAY button. I'm so tired of your terrible service. Fix it.

    I have been try to watch episode 20 for 32 minutes now and I haven't got the end of part one, although every time I send in a problem message the adverts run for 90 minutes without a problem. Is Channel having financial problems, that is why we can only adverts on line.

    Why the constant freezing??!I watch entire films online, so the problem's not with my internet connection or speed! And funny how the adverts play absolutely fine, it's only when the programme starts that the problems begin!

    I don't get adverts as I have it set up to suppreess them. Your freezing problem is probably to do with Flashplayer. Best thing to do is to go back to an older version. The current versions are all 11.# but go back before the 11s start and make sure you don't accept upgrades.

    #cakeboy79 - There is a scroll bar sneakily hiding behind the bar at the bottom of the screen. Also found that disabling the Internet Explorer facility that blocks pop ups seemed to improve the constant freezing considerably. Gonna try the tip of changing to small screen for adverts too. Favourite series at the moment,only two more episodes left, not looking forward to several months withdrawal pains before next series, sob!

    It used to freeze for me loads. I got around it by exiting from full screen just before the ads started, and it would continue. Now it's actually not a problem at all because we got a new superhub installed. It's not demand5 that's the problem it's internet download. btw ouat is awesome, really love it.

    Is this a joke? An advert break in a middle of a sentence! I love the program but Demand 5 need to know what they are doing wrong! Look at similar websites like the iPlayer, Demand 5 could learn lots from that!

    Channel 5 - please explain how I can watch one episode without any problems but as soon as I load the next one it freezes as soon as the adverts have finished. If it is a streaming problem then surely the adverts would freeze as well? Its beyond frustrating. I have tried this for 3 days in a row and each time the same problem.?

    Quite simply, the whole intention of demand 5 player is to continually stall to make you watch more and more advertising. It is designed purely for this. When I miss programmes on this channel now, I just buy the series - it avoids the frustration and I can sell it on Amazon or Ebay. Demand 5 is unreliable and unfulfilling.

    I love Emma and August! It should have been obvious how connected they were! I mean, August/Pinocchio tells lies... Emma has a "superpower" of knowing when people are lying... X-D I love OUAT it's so awesome. Can't wait for the finale and then when it comes out on DVD in the UK! Oh my gosh I just thought about how epic it would be if Graham came back to life because then it would be love triangle-ish.

    OMG. That was painful. Tonight I've got a 6.7 Mb broadband connection and it was almost unwatchable. It took nearly 1 1/2 hrs to see the whole episode because it kept freezing. I only kept going because I love the series. I tried Chrome and Firefox and made no difference. Ch5, please improve your player.

    This piece of Junk Demand5 Player is beyond bad. All the Ads play but the player stalls, stops and crashes, Channel 5 you are a bunch of amateurs but it says everything that you make sure the Ads play

    ABC has renewed the show for a second season which is in the process of being filmed and is scheduled to begin at the end of September 2012, why are people saying episode 22 is the end of the entire programme? :s.
