What do you think of Once Upon a Time?

Fairy tales are back in prime time TV. Once Upon a Time debuted last Sunday. Did you see it?
Here are my initial thoughts:

  • Emma, played by Jennifer Morrison from House, kept the show grounded
  • Working-class Snow White seems more valuable than fairy tale Snow White 
  • The kid wasn't too annoying but I really want to know who wrote that book he has and how did the teacher/Snow White find it 
  • The Prince reminds me of Coldplay's Chris Martin 
  • The wicked witch was wicked, but I don't get why she doomed the fairy tale peeps to "somplace horrible" in a curse. Maybe I need to rewatch... 
  • Rumplestilskin reminds me of a character from Labyrinth (maybe he's the Goblin King's cousin!) 
  • I rolled my eyes at Storybrooke, Maine, but what can you do.

 Once Upon a Time airs Sundays on ABC. Are you planning to watch?


  1. Not sure what I think quite yet. I have high hopes for this show, but I'm a little worried I'll end up disappointed. You're right about Jennifer Morrison's character, she definitely carried the show in many ways (namely, her acting). I will keep watching, but I'm hoping it will be a little less on the cheesy side from here on in.

  2. I'm hoping to catch this when it airs over here, I have low expectations so I won't get disappointed :-)

  3. I haven't seen it but I know my nephews were interested in the show. I wonder if many kids watch it? Is it appropriate for children?

  4. I would say appropriate for upper elementary; PG language for the most part, but some of it might just be boring for kids.

  5. I love this show! Anything that's a twist on fairy tales has my vote. Did you see how ripped Jennifer Morrison's arms got? I'm so impressed!
