Is there a show that you love so much that you wish more people would start watching? There are so many great television shows on, but one of the best new shows this season is definitely Once Upon a Time. The not-so-fairytale drama on ABC is so good that it didn’t take long for fans and critics to get hooked.
For those who haven’t watched yet, it’s a drama series that takes place in two worlds: A world where all your favorite fairytale characters live in and modern day in a fictional town called Storybrooke.
The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) was so angry with Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Joshua Dallas) that she decided to place a curse on the adorable couple and everyone else in the fairytale world. The curse? There will be no more happy endings.
To protect his newborn daughter, Charming puts his new daughter, Emma, into a magical tree that allows the baby to escape the curse. Now, 28 years later, Emma is the key to rescuing your favorite fairytale characters and breaking the curse.
There are many reasons why you should watch this amazing new show on ABC. Here are the top three reasons why you should tune in every week.
When doing a show that involves beloved fairytale characters you have to be careful. Fans will become angry really quickly if you mess with their favorite stories too much. Not only have the writers done a great job at writing the back stores, but they’re also making fans want to learn more about their favorite fairytale characters.
Once Upon a Timeis a cleverly written show that puts all your favorite fairy tale characters into the modern day world. The only catch is that they don’t know they’re stuck in time. While they’re given different names, they still have the same characteristics of their fairytale character.
For instance, in the fictional town of Storybrooke we meet Ashley. Ashley is a young pregnant waitress who lives with her stepmom and stepsisters. Sound familiar? During the time of the curse Cinderella was pregnant with her unborn child.
When shows jump back and forth from one world to another, things can get either confusing or really awkward. The transition from modern day to the fairytale world is seamless and completely easy to follow.
What’s great about Parrilla’s acting is that you absolutely love hating her character. When you think that she can’t get evil enough, she proves you wrong. Regina/Evil Queen is easily the most ruthless character on television. Anyone else still screaming at the TV because of what happened to the Sheriff during the final moments of the December 11, 2011 episode?
Then there’s the chemistry between Dallas and Goodwin. They’re amazing together and you can see what strong chemistry they have, which is a good thing considering they play Snow White and Prince Charming.
Once Upon a Timeis easily one of the best new shows on television. Each episode gets so good that fans are left wanting more. This is one show that more people should start watching. If you love fairytale stories set in the modern day world then this is one show you have to start watching… now!
