I've watched a 20-minute preview via on-demand and quite enjoyed it. Looking forward to this one -- Alice can kick ass and there's no annoying Henry

A very good premiere episode. It's a bit darker (in a good way) than its older sibling, and no Henry!

I quite like it too. And I thought the visuals were well-done.

There's something that's been bothering me this whole time. In Once Upon a Time (OPaT), Cora was banished through the looking glass by Regina, and ended up becoming The Queen of Hearts in Wonderland. But in Once Upon a Time in Wonderland ("Wonderland"), it's Anastasia who is The Red Queen. And considering that is is a spin-off series from OPaT, and takes a lot of influence from the original series, this is not dovetailing properly with what was depicted in OPaT, unless The Red Queen and The Queen of Hearts or two completely different Queens, both who love red? And if that's the case, what's the difference between the two of them?

Edit: I just looked it up and it appears they are two completely different Queens, both of whom seem to love red (which further added to my confusion). So what's the difference between the two of them, and how come we haven't seen The Red Queen (Anastasia), and The Queen of Hearts (Cora) having crossed paths and clashed in Wonderland?

Could be happening / have happened at completely different times.

In any case, it's not something that I have worried about or even given much thought (though I never thought they were the same queens). I mean for that matter, we haven't seen the Mad Hatter either.

They said he wasn't in wonderland.
We know where he is.

Also noted that in Toronto, Once Upon a Time is on CTV While Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is on City (formerly CityTV). I was kind of puzzled myself at first at this oddness. I kinda think I still am, because both are produced by ABC it appears.

Yep! It confused both my friend and I who watch both on a (somewhat) regular basis. It's a bit funny because on other forums Americans frequently complain about spoiler threads from Canadians since (at least) the main series is aired here earlier than the U.S. which confuses a lot of people.

If people are still wondering, it's the Queen of Hearts (Cora) who came into power first and then later on the Red Queen (Anatasia). We know this since the Mad Hatter came during Cora's reign; if it were the other way around there would be no Mad Hatter's place and Alice wouldn't have entered a house full of hats where she would later find Cyrus' amulet outside.

Both shows, different universes. Thats the only way to approach it. There isn't any cross overs. Its intentional.

I watched the episode 8th of this show it was about Cyrus' origin story, really liked it.
This show deserves one glance at least.

Actually, it's the same universe. Wonderland is a direct spin-off from Once Upon a Time. And The Caterpillar right off the bat is the most obvious crossover. Same exact character, same exact look.

When they show Alice in the real world, it's pretty obvious to me it's taking place during Victorian times. Horse drawn carriages and the asylum being two examples. So wouldn't that make it a prequel?

You're assuming the portal only travels through dimensions? Time is relative in magical realms, and the world where Alice existed in the real world might just be a different "real world", else how would you explain the same exact Caterpillar in both series, and The Mad Hatter's house in Wonderland when he clearly didn't get trapped there until Once Upon a Time?

In fact, the second scene (or close to it) of the series features the Knave in Storybrooke.
