Once Upon A Time
By Geeky Gem
I thought seen as I told you about Grimm a little while ago that I would tell you about another show based on fairy tales. This one however isn’t as dark as Grimm but is still a really good show.
Once Upon a Time is an American fantasy-drama television series created by Lost and Tron: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, not bad sounding guys right.
Well anyway the show tells the story of Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), who after many years is found by her son Henry. She gave Henry up when he was just a baby, Henry seems to think that Emma is the only one that can save his town from his adopted mother.
Henry seems to think that every one in town is a fairy tale character taken from his book and that they have been trapped in their town of Storybrooke, people like Snow White, Prince Charming and the Evil Queen who of course is the one that trapped them all there. Each week Emma meets a new character and has to help along with Henry, in order to free them all from the Evil Queen. The show goes from showing Emma in Storybrooke to the lives of the characters in the fairy tale world and you see their back stories this way. This is a fantastic tool for a show like this. Throw in Mr Gold, a man who likes to make deals and you have start of a very good story.
If you haven’t seen this show then it would say give it a go. The story is really good and the characters are fantastic, Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas play Snow White and Prince Charming brilliantly. Add to the is Lana Parrilla’s Evil Queen and you on to a winner, however I think the edition of Robert Carlyle is fantastic I think his character is one of the best in the show. Oh he plays Mr Gold, who is a very dark and mysterious character when you go back and see who he is in the story tale world.This is show any one can get into and it is well worth a go, if you like Grimm you will like this.
I have only watched season one so far as season two has not yet aired here but is airing the US now. Enjoy.
