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.

While Once started out fairly strong, the initial conflict of the series was resolved far too quickly in the first season. Since then the show's writers just keep throwing new one dimensional "villains" at the audience to create more and more contrived situations for the show's characters to move through without any real motivation to speak of. Characters often betray their own personal beliefs as stated in the show at the whim of weak scripts.

Alright my opinion...... every single episode has a riveting, dramatic, heart-wrenching plot. The actors and actresses are stunning in every way.The costumes are perfect and very beautiful. The scenery for the Enchanted Forest, Oz, Arendelle and Camelot are gorgeous and the castles are extremely realistic. I have watched every single episode of every season and I shall continue to do so until the horrific, horrible, heart-breaking day when the creators say that the best TV show that there ever was is ending next week. If whoever created this show is reading this I beg of you as a devoted fan to every single character of Once Upon A Time ( especially Hook aka Killian Jones he is so cute I actually cried when he sacrificed himself after being the Dark One ) to make a season 6 and a season 7 please make as many as you can With much admiration LouLou Schiavo
