Can you really describe the awesomeness of this show? Who expected that? It's easily in top 5 shows for me this year!

Take the fairytale characters and put them in our world. Then put a curse so they don't remember and only one way to break it. Tadah!

I really don't know where to start. Okay the series have a lot of special effects and sometimes they are not as great as other bigger or older series but they are good enough (i know i fall in love with the dragon at the last episode!). Still the story is so fascinating and beautiful, so who cares?

At each episode we get scenes from what's happening now, and pre-curse scenes. Each episode features the story of a fairy tale character, connected to the main plot. Surprisingly, the constant change between the timeline wasn't confusing at all AND it was totally exciting and kept you interested.

As for the cast...could it really be better? It's like the perfect casting in any way possible. All of them are not just talented but fit their roles and characters perfectly. It's like it's real. You connect so much with everything happening and you are so full of feelings (damn you evil queen!! how freaking evil is she?!) every time.

The stories are also mostly re-telling which mean while they keep the main theme of every fairy tale, in the end they change things. But they change them so nicely, that is kind of awesome. Plus, it's funny and cute how they put in some things from the Disney movies we all grew up with. Like the dress of Cinderella or Belle, the little broken cup from Beauty and the Beast and many other connections to things like that.

Let's just say the series are perfect. At least for me. Fairy tales, action, magic, kick ass characters. What more do you want?

Once Upon A Time has renewed for a 2nd season.



  1. Love love love this show!!! I can't wait to go buy the DVD set and re-watch it. And I SERIOUSLY cannot wait for season 2!

    And can I just say that I adore Rumplestilskin? Robert Carlyle does an AMAZING job.

    Okay I'm done gushing now :)

    1. I'm trying to convince my friends to watch the series too. Obviously i will re-watch them. They are too awesome for just once.

      Rumplestiskin is not my favorite, possibly because i can't decide who is, but he is so amazing! As i said perfect casting!

  2. I have only 1 objection to the perfection of this show:
    I will tell you without being too much spoiler, "the huntsman incident"...
    With the exception of that I agree it is perfect, and my favorite character is Rumplestilskin too XD

    1. OMG! SO true! I can't believe what they did *sniff*

  3. I saw the first episode and loved it, but I haven't been able to get the rest yet. Thanks for reminding me!


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
