Once Upon a Time Summary

There is a town in Maine where every story book character you've ever known is trapped between two worlds, victims of a powerful curse. Only one knows the truth and only one can break the spell. Emma Swan is a 28-year-old bail bonds collector who has been supporting herself since she was abandoned as a baby. Things change for her when her son Henry, whom she abandoned years ago, finds her and asks for her help explaining that she is from a different world where she is Snow White's missing daughter.

This show has completely revolutionized Television industry alongside American Horror Story and Game of Thrones in my opinion.
As a guy I snorted when I saw the trailer.I watched a couple of episodes and I've been addicted ever since.
Best part about the show? You do'nt need to sell sex to gain viewers all the time.

One thing you have to know before you begin to watch this show, and this comes from the biggest fan in the world, if your coming for amazing speacial effects and action fights don't even bother, if you don't care about that stuff but you care about character development, complex stories and cliff hangers (some of them you already knew that were coming, but some of them leave you gasping for air), then this is the show for you. It's also reallt cheesy, lot's of true love beats everything, you really have to be a Disney fan to enjoy it. While you're watching season 1 you can be one of two people: the this is so boring, why am I really watching this show or the it got me hooked since day one. If you are the first person I have to tell you that, when you get the hang of it, you won't want to stop watching it, you'll laugh at some really bad plot lines and terrible special effects but there is always something that keeps you intrigued and you'll watch the show until the end. If you are the second person than welcome to the fandom, you'll cry, you'll laugh, you'll get sucked in and I'm really not sorry for you, we have all been there before...

This show is just so addictive and fun from beginning to end. It has it all; a great cast, excellent scripts, it is well acted, the characters are believable and the girls are gorgeous. What more could you want? It is certainly my favourite show...possibly ever!

The first season this show was both great and awful. The fairy tale stories were really cool, but what happened in storybrooke was boring. Since none of the characters have their fairy tale memories, their lives were uninteresting and much like a bad soap opera. The episodes I enjoyed most were the ones where individual characters remembered who they were; such as the Mad Hatter's episode. Once everyone remembered (season 2) the show got interesting both in the present and past storylines.

I remember first hearing about this show. I thought it was gonna be a short mini-series that will end on December 2011. I remember being so excited that it was gonna last a lot longer! I remember seeing Snow White's promo picture in a magazine and thinking, "I know her!" i knew Ginny Goodwin from a couple movies so at first, she was the only reason I wanted to check out the show. That and I have always been a huge fan of the fairy tales growing up. I remember watching the promo for the second episode and seeing Regina cry during the scene where she rips her father's heart out and I remember thinking, "is she seriously crying over not being the fairest of them all?" lol And then I thought and hoped that there had to be a bigger reason why she wanted revenge. For the longest time, I had no idea that there for sure was gonna be a much bigger and tragic reason behind Regina's darkness, but then "The Stable Boy" premiered and that shined a whole new light on my feelings towards Regina. I always loved watching her cause I remember watching "The Thing You Love Most" over and over again cause I just loved watching her enchanted forest scenes, but The Stable Boy gave me a whole new love for her and a bit more resentment towards Snow White. Ever since then, I would get so angry whenever the other characters are so mean to her and ban together to plan to kill her and make her suffer. I get their reasons behind it but it still made me angry that they would want to hurt her after everything she's been through that led to her being the Evil Queen. spoiler alert That's why I'm so happy to see her become such a better person in the newer seasons as she works with the heroes and make long awaited amends with the people she wronged and who wronged her. I still constantly worry if she will ever revert to her old ways and there have been a few times where she seems to come close but she's been doing good at containing herself from going back into the darkness. It's so cool to watch that as the show grew, she did as well. Like I said, I still worry that she might still be tempted to go back into the darkness but I'm keeping hope alive that she will constantly try to fight it now that she has loved ones in her life and friends who have her back who love her and she loves them. Now that I'm assuming her task of finding her happy ending is complete now that she has Robin Hood and Henry and Roland and finally feeling at home in the world which is what her true happy ending has been, she should now finally be at peace and live a happy life...

Major Spoiler Alert

Course now, she has to save Emma who is now the Dark One so her story isn't exactly over yet.
