About this show

This is the story of two parallel worlds: one in a distant fairytale land, the other in present-day reality. ONCE UPON A TIME, an evil Queen cast a curse upon Snow White and Prince Charming along with the beloved characters we know and love with the intention of foiling their happy ending to get her own. Relationships will be formed, bonds will be made, battle lines will be drawn and love may be the only thing that can break the curse.

Has a few, very few, good twists. Almost all the shocking is not. They stopped pretending they were not in fact just redoing the Disney/Pixar stuff...I am both looking forward to and dreading what they will do to my fav princess, Jasmine! Also, good stories do not need to be half flashback. And please cut back on luthor lectures, they did not help smallville, they do not help here!

I love this show it interests me about how all the charters are based off of story book charecters. I only have one negative about this show I wish they would put in some charecters from other things that aren't story book. Like if they put in someone from the show charmed. Or if they created some new charecters from their own heads. Not just the fairytale all of us remember from our childhoods. Great,amazing,fantastic. Just needs a charecters none of us have seen yet to set it apart from the rest.

I have greatly enjoyed Once Upon a Time Seasons 1-the first half of 4. From the second half of 4 through season five, it's been endurable. Season 5 has been too dark for my tastes--All Dark Swan-ish the first half and the second half spent wandering in the pagan Greek equivalent of Purgatory. Not their best season. I hope season 6 greatly improves upon the show, returning it to the "feel" and "quality" of the first 3 1/2 seasons.
