TV: Once Upon a Time
My second favourite new show of the season had to be ABC's fairy tale drama, Once Upon a Time! Utilizing writers from LOST, it was bound to be a hit! And I know somebody who works on the production side of the show, as it's filmed here in Vancouver. He's not able to give me any spoilers though, otherwise he could lose his job. So, I'll just have to watch to find out what happens like everyone else!
The premise is a little complex, which is no surprise since LOST was complex from start to finish. However, it's definitely family fare that everyone can enjoy. It takes place in a town called Storybrook, where fairy tale characters live in the modern day world after a curse has taken them out from their fairy tale land and none of them remember who they are. It's up to one stranger to break this curse. It features many of your favourite fairy tale characters such as Snow White, the Evil Queen, Cinderella, Rumplestiltskin, and many more...
OH and let's not forget about the men of Once Upon a Time! First we have the Sheriff:
And of course, Prince Charming, HELLO!! :
Fresh from her sister-wife duties on Big Love, Ginnifer Goodwin plays Snow White, and even though I like her, you may just not be that into her.
Once Upon a Time airs every Sunday night on ABC, so check it out if you are looking for a fantasy escape to help wind down your weekend!
