Once Upon a Time
I just discovered this show. Is anyone else watching it?
My daughter got me hooked. I’ve only seen the most recent episode and the second episode so far (I’m waiting to watch more with my husband), but there’s something about it that’s really compelling.
At least for me–and it might be a bit girly for some of you, I’m not sure.
The trailer explains the premise. Some of the things I love about it:
- The acting. The evil witch character is played really well, in fact she’s my fave character so far. She’s evil, yeah, but she’s just in so much pain that you kinda feel for her.
- The wardrobes. Everyone during the normal-human-earth scenes looks like a normal person, yet if you were to line them up, you’d be able to guess which is Snow White, which is Rumpelstiltskin, which is Prince Charming, etc.
- Characters yet to be revealed. Everyone in the town is supposed to be a fairytale character, but not all of their fairytale identities have been shown. The waitress in the diner has to be Red Riding Hood! But who is the doctor?
And just the feel of the whole thing. I can’t even really put my finger on what I love about it. But it’s great.
