Once Upon a Time -LOVE IT!

I've been waiting to write about this show for weeks now! I hesitated because I didn't want to jinx it!   Once Upon a Time has everything that I want from a televised show. An interesting plot, good actors (so far),  beautiful costumes, and fantastic scenery.

The plot is a bit complicated, but the gist is : all of the fairytale characters we read about  as children  are now stuck in our world. They are living ordinary lives  because an evil queen ( she is really evil -not like the play Wicked -where the wicked  witch was actually good)  casted spell on them.  The fairytale characters need a hero to undo the spell. The hero is not what we expect like Prince Charming  - instead it's a hard a$$, tell it like it is -woman.  She is a bail- bonds person- so it makes sense I guess.  The storyline sounds interesting, but will it have you hooked- like your local crackhead on the street searching for the next hit?

The actors are very good! 
The Evil Queen- my God -she is really good and her costume are so cool that I think even Lady Gaga would be jealous :-) Then there's  Rumpelstiltskin- he may be worse than the Evil Witch! He is  so creepy, clever and evil!  He is a great actor and I am little scared of him...then there is Emma the heroine -she is Snow White's daughter( bail bonds lady) . She is tough compared to the other characters so I like her edge. 
Snow White is brave and she did something to the Evil Queen  which got the Queen  more pissed off than Kanye West at an awards ceremony!
Robert Carlyle as Rumpelstiltskin 
Lana Parrilla as the Evil Queen

Jennifer Morrison as Emma
Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White

This show is not for children, as some of their scenes has sexual inferences, violence and evil ( the Evil Queen killed her own father!)   I like the show because it makes the audience have to match  ordinary people with  a fairy tale character. I also like how the writers puts twists  to every fairy tale story we know. I know some people may say that the story lines do not make sense, but its a fantasy show, so logic is out the window-just let it go- relax! 

Do you like the show?
Who's your favorite character?

BTW: There is a movie called Mirror Mirror about the Evil Queen coming out soon . The Evil Queen is played by Julia Roberts. Looks good for the family.

~Happy New Year!~
