If you enjoy fairytales, then ABC’s new television series, Once Upon A Time, may be your next favorite show. It premiered on Sunday, October 23rd, at 8 p.m. The show is about how all the fairytale characters we know and love are actually cursed to be real people and live horrible lives in a town called Storybrooke, all because the Evil Queen from the Snow White fairytale tries to ruin their happy endings. What’s worse is that none of the characters remember who they really are. To break the curse, the Evil Queen must be stopped. However, the one who can stop the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) is the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Joshua Dallas): Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison). Emma is dragged into this mysterious town by the son she supposedly gave up for adoption, Henry (Jared Gilmore), who tries to convince her about the town residents being fairytale characters. There is a lot going on in the plot; not only are we getting glimpses at the story book characters but also at the residents in the town who are basically them but in another world. We are also seeing a relationship between Emma and Henry forming as he tries to convince her about the people in town being fairytale characters. The show has only just aired, but I already want to see more. It not only brings you in with the fairytale and fantasy theme, but it also has a bit of mystery twisted in it to keep you guessing. The cast’s acting is also very good. It has the potential to be a really good new series and one of the best shows for the fall. The show airs on ABC on Sundays at 8 p.m.
