Who doesn’t love fairy tales? We’ve all grown up with them. We’ve got our favorites that we made our parents either read or watch again and again. Personally, I was never a fan of Snow White and her red apple but I loved the story of Belle. Fascinated by books, she seemed closer to me than all the princesses that I had heard about. In any case, the characters of fairy tales are always enchanting and the moral at the end absolutely worth it. In Once Upon a Time, be prepared to be amazed by real life Dwarfs, Princes, and Evil Queens from those children tales.


Emma (Jennifer Morrison) is a strong, independent bail bond woman and a bounty hunter. When her 10 year old son Henry (Jared S. Gilmore) who she gave up for adoption at birth shows up on her front door, she only thinks of taking him back to where he came from: Storybrooke. However, this town is not what it seems to be. Emma will soon discover that coming here was her destiny. Indeed, the people of Storybrooke are characters from fairy tales stuck in time by a terrible curse. Someone robbed them of their memories and their only hope is Emma.

From then on the guessing game starts, is Regina the mayor (Lana Parrilla) really the Evil Queen? Who is Rumplestiltskin? And more importantly, will Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) ever be reunited, not only in this modern world but in the enchanted forest where they belong?

Well, you’ll have to watch to find out…

once upon a time

Once Upon a Time is different. Because we are talking about fairy tales the first assumption is that it is going to be aimed at children but it is not. The audience can be easily broaden to adults thanks to an intricate plot. From episode to episode, we discover that everything is intricately linked together. The writers also manage to insert clever flashbacks into the story-line and we are easily transported into the magic world of the enchanted forest and all of its characters.

Of course, we are talking Snow White, Little Riding Hood and Mulan so it is going to be cheesy sometimes. Good has to triumph without spilling blood. Prince Charming is absolutely annoying most of the time with his righteousness. However, I couldn’t stop myself from watching it and I believe you won’t either.
