Such an amazing series--fairy tales being re-told. It's organized so well that everything fits and makes sense. Really interesting

I love these retellings especially if you think you know everything about fairy tales. You'll fall in love with all of the characters (especially Rumplestiltskin, Regina, Ruby and Jefferson) and won't be able to wait for the next episode (or season.)
Beware: This season is better than the second because there are more backstories, but don't skip out on it, Captain Hook (who's gorgeous and hilarious) will be on the way and then he takes the group to Neverland in season three.

Didn't think I would like this, the begining was a bit.. eh..for me but eventually things got interesting and I was hook. Going to order the second season. Wouldn't say it's 'AMAZING' like some people here are but it's good and worth seeing how the story progresses in season 2.

I am surprised about high rating. I found it really boring. I couldn't finish the first season.

Once upon a time there lived a princess...Stop right there, how familiar are we with that phrase? Who hasn't at least read one fairy tale? And who doesn't love a good happily-ever-after? So it should be no surprise when the American TV series "Once Upon A Time" became a hit. Created by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, this is one drama that would make you feel like a kid again, beware of childhood nostalgia up ahead! So grab a bag of popcorn, get comfy and start reading away the review... shall we begin?
Meet our protagonist Emma Swan, your average female cop whose life has been anything but a fairy tale. Growing up as a orphan she knows very well the hardship of surviving... On her twenty-eighth birthday a boy shows up at her doorstep claiming to be her son. He believes that her mother, Emma, is the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming. What's more bizarre is that Henry thinks Emma has been sent away from the Enchanted Forest to be protected from a curse that was performed by the Evil Queen. At first Emma doesn't believe a word of Henry's story... Her? The daughter of Snow White? But as she wanders deeper and deeper into her own family histories and the peculiar town, she soon finds that Henry's hometown Storybrooke, Maine may just be what you call magical. Never judge a book by its cover, a town full of seemingly normal folks may just turn out to be your favorite Disney characters. It appears that all of the residents in Storybrooke are actually classic characters from fairy tales. They are frozen in time with no memories of their former selves, all except for the Evil Queen who is the one who set the curse. As if being the Evil Queen isn't bad enough, she also happens to be Storybrooke's mayor, and Henry's adoptive mother Regina Mills. It is good versus evil as Emma tries to battle against villains with unbelievable power and forces, she will have to accept her destiny and fight for those she holds dear if she wants a happy ending. A perfect clash of modern settings, ancient flashbacks and surreal elements.
When I was a little girl I was all about fairy tales, and if you give me a quiz on that you'd bet I'll get a hundred percent. So naturally I was overjoyed when I found out about this show, and it did not disappoint! I love how the characters are modernized and fit right in with the twenty-first century backdrop, yet their original stories keep recurring themselves. Going back and force with "now" and "then" was unbelievably intriguing to watch, and to all the changes they made to the ancient tales are worthy of me saying BRAVO! One of the reasons why this show made my eyes glued to the computer twenty-four seven was because of Mr. Gold, or should I say Rumplestiltskin or maybe Beast? He is my favorite character, and he was absolutely the star even though he was the villain. Kind of like Loki. This show is called "Once Upon A Time" because it's about fairy tales and we all know how they like to begin it with once upon a time... This show was a blast and I can promise you that after finishing it you would start looking for season two. And they lived happily ever after.

The first season of Once Upon a Time features fairy tale characters set in a real world environment. An evil queen from the Enchanted Forest casts a spell that transports many fairy tale characters to the "real world" of Storybrooke Maine where the characters do not age nor do they have any memories of their past lives. Emma Swan who is the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming is the only person who can break the curse. The episodes go back and forth between the real world and fairy tales.

I started watching this because parts of it were filmed in the old library building where I used to work-- look, there's the crappy couch that used to be in the staff room! But now I'm addicted, and can watch 4 episodes at a time.
