Once Upon A Time

No, this isn't a fairy tale.  I'm referring to the show on ABC. 

I'm coming to this show late because it was on at the same time as Amazing Race.  Luckily, they have all 7 episodes available online and they had a marathon this past weekend so I'm all caught up.  A friend recommended it to me as a show she can watch with her daughters.  I tried it out.  I really like it.  I mistakenly thought the Grimm show would be better but I like the characters in this one and I like how they weave the present and past storylines together.

I'm noticing at trend in YA books about the re-telling of fairy tales (Cinder anyone?) so this show kind of fits into that as well.  Check it out if you haven't already.  It is on Sunday nights at 8p.

  1. I admit that I've been pleasantly surprised by both Once Upon a Time and Grimm. The writing on Once Upon a Time is good and the plots are much cleverer than I expected at first.

    I originally thought Grimm might get tiresome and hokey after a while, but it's actually gotten stronger as the season progressed. Two of my favorites shows this season.
