Welcome to Storybrooke, Maine

So many little blurby posts I'd like to spill out all in a day.  I'll start with this one and let the trailer do the talking.  Did you guys happen to catch Once Upon A Time Sunday night on ABC?  Um, it's off the hook!!

I'm a fairy tale junkie--grew up on them and they still hold a special place in my heart--this show incorporates a magical fairy tale element to it without being wishy washy or childish.  It's also kind of dark which I particularly loved.  Wasn't sure how I'd feel about Ginnifer Goodwin, but have managed to get visions of Margene out of my head (seriously still haven't recovered from the loss of Big Love).  Last night was dedicated entirely to catching up on the DVR--laundry be damned--and I found myself wanting to watch Once Upon a Time all over again as soon as it was finished.  Truth be told it was like that good book you dread completing so drag out as the pages draw closer and closer to the end.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about check the trailer here and then go catch the episode on the internet or OnDemand.  We need to discuss the brilliance!!  Giddy

Such a great one!! Would love to know what you think of the pilot. I'm in a full scale nerd alert on this show.

It looks fantastic, Im always up for something with a little substance and a little different and I love Ginnifer.

Tabitha said...

I watched the Premiere too and I absolutely LOVED it. I also love the cast - it's off the wall. I can't wait to tune in again this week. :)

I might have to give this show a try since the premise is very interesting and it is now Carrie approved.

Pan Am has really been go-to my Sunday night show, but I caught Once Upon a Time this week and like you, am instantly addicted - for some reason I love it that modern-day Red Riding Hood is a slutty teenager (IDK why ...)

Courtney Erin said...

Clearly I have to watch this...will get on that ASAP!

I loved it, too! The trailers for next week make it seem like they are going to tell a bit of the backstory this next week, so I am excited :)

Ooo, I had written this one off before it even started, but I just may have to check it out now! Thanks!

I'm so glad you adore this show-I was absolutely smitten with it! Although I will admit Ms Goodwin was a bit of a surprise...I can't wait for episode 2!

Ashleigh said...

I'm going to be honest, I had no interest in watching this via the previews on TV. However, after this rave review I'm intriqued!

Amy N said...

I keep seeing commercials and billboards for this show, and am so fascinated! I lived on fairy tales and happily-ever-afters growing up. Can't wait to catch the show!

i thought the premise was intriguing but i haven't seen it yet. i was wondering if it would be as good as it sounds, and a lot of people are saying it is. i'll have to go check it out.

My fiance had it on last night and we caught the one from last week and this week. I was pretty impressed too, and I liked it more than I wanted to. I really tend to restrict myself to only reality television that I can miss a show without missing anything...but I'm going to have to watch this one. I also really want to believe the little boy and it makes me wish there were fun plot lines in our real lives...

i watched out of curiosity and now I'm a closeted fan. ABC was working on a tv series for Fables (one of my favorite comic book series) but they abandoned it... sad :(

then they picked this up and i was skeptical because i looked like a rip off of Fables. Well, it basically is (but way more G rated). I like it reluctantly. Charming hooked me. He's too cute for words. Don't tell my boy.
