Once Upon A Time

Yesterday I stayed in bed most of the day watching TV.  I’m still sore from my accident and it was so nice to relax with Harley and do nothing.  I caught up on Season 2 of The Vampire Diaries and then watched the first four episodes of Once Upon A Time.

I had been saving the pilot episode to watch for a while and it is such a great show that I had to watch the next three episodes!  Once Upon A Time is about what happens to all our favourite FairyTale characters when Snow White’s Evil Queen releases a powerful curse the day she and Prince Charming’s child is born and they end up trapped in our world, with no recollection of who they are in a town called Storybrook, Maine.  These are not the Disney variety of fairytales and shows has a darker, dramatic side to it.  The show was created by two of the writers from Lost and I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds. This could be my new favourite series!

Here’s the synopsis from CTV where you can watch full episodes


And they all lived happily ever after – or so everyone was led to believe. Emma Swan knows how to take care of herself. She’s a 28-year-old bail bonds collector who’s been on her own ever since she was abandoned as a baby. But when the son she gave up years ago finds her, everything starts to change. Henry is now 10 years old and in desperate need of Emma’s help.

He believes that Emma actually comes from an alternate world and is Snow White and Prince Charming’s missing daughter. According to his book of fairytales, they sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen’s curse, which trapped the fairytale world forever, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world. Of course Emma doesn’t believe a word, but when she brings Henry back to Storybrooke, she finds herself drawn to this unusual boy and his strange New England town. Concerned for Henry, she decides to stay for a while, but she soon suspects that Storybrooke is more than it seems.

It’s a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close… where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don’t remember who they once were.

The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell.
