    ONCE UPON A TIME...

    Posted Image


    Show Information
    Country of origin: US
    Network: ABC
    Season: 1
    Broadcast period: October 23, 2011 - Present
    Air times: Sundays, 8/7c


    Synopsis

    On the wedding day of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) arrives and delivers an ominous threat about a powerful curse she intends to release upon them. Some time later, a pregnant Snow White is worried about the curse and visits Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) who issues a prophecy that the Queen's curse will take them all someplace terrible where there will be no happy endings. He also reveals that Snow White's unborn daughter, Emma, will return when she is 28 years old to rescue them, thus beginning the final battle with the Queen. On advice from the Blue Fairy, Geppetto (Tony Amendola) and Pinocchio fashion a wardrobe from a magical tree which will allow one person to escape the Queen's curse. Prince Charming intends for Snow White and their unborn daughter to use the magic tree to escape the curse, but Snow White goes into labor and gives birth to Emma just as the wardrobe is about to be completed. On the day Snow White gives birth to her daughter, the Queen's curse strikes. Prince Charming places their daughter in the magic wardrobe, but is grievously wounded battling the Queen's henchmen. The Queen stands triumphantly over Snow White and Prince Charming as the curse takes them to "someplace horrible."

    In present day Boston, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) lives a lonely existence working as a bail bondsman and bounty hunter. On her 28th birthday, Emma is approached by a ten year old boy who identifies himself as her son, Henry, who Emma had given up for adoption as a baby. Not wanting a relationship with him, Emma agrees to drive him back to his home in Storybrooke, Maine. Along the way, Henry shows her a large book of fairy tales, insisting that all of the stories in it are real. When they arrive in Storybrooke, Henry informs her that everyone in town is in reality a fairy tale character, exiled by the curse and with no memory of their real identities. This includes his therapist, who is really Jiminy Cricket, and his teacher Mary Margaret Blanchard, who is really Snow White. He claims that time is frozen in Storybrooke and the people are unable to leave, but that the curse will be broken by Emma. A skeptical Emma returns Henry to his adopted mother, the town's mayor who is really the Evil Queen. When Henry soon runs away again, Emma finds him and decides to stay in Storybrooke temporarily. This decision causes the hands of the town clock, previously frozen, to begin moving again.


    Cast and Characters

    Primary

    *Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard, Emma's biological mother who becomes Henry's elementary school teacher in the Real World. Snow White is also Henry's grandmother.

    *Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, a 28-year-old bailbonds collector who learns that she holds the key to saving the Real World and the Enchanted Forest. Emma is the daughter of Prince Charming/John Doe and Snow White/Sister Mary Margaret Blanchard, and is Henry's biological mother. Emma was sent from the Enchanted Forest because Prince Charming and Snow White wanted to protect her from the curse made by the Evil Queen.

    *Lana Parrilla as The Evil Queen/Regina Mills, the icy, darkly beautiful antagonist of the Snow White fairy tale who becomes Henry's adoptive mother and Storybrooke's mayor (Regina Mills) in the Real World. She is determined to keep Emma away from Henry. She killed the person that mattered most to her to make the curse happen, her father, a choice that left a hole that can't be filled.

    *Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/John Doe. The hero of the Snow White fairy tale and movie was an unnamed prince. In the Disney movie Cinderella, Prince Charming is Cinderella's prince. It is also implied that he also has a twin brother, a reference to The Prince and the Pauper. In the TV show, he is the leader of the Enchanted Forest's War Council and Emma's biological father who becomes an unknown comatose patient at Storybrooke General Hospital.[4][5]

    *Jared S. Gilmore as Henry, Emma's son whom she gave up for adoption ten years earlier. Henry learns the truth behind Storybrooke from a book of fairy tales and finds his biological mother with the hopes of convincing her to save the Enchanted Forest. He is the grandson of Prince Charming/John Doe and Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard, and the adopted son of The Evil Queen/Regina Mills. He is named after Regina's father, whom she killed to make the curse happen.

    *Raphael Sbarge as Jiminy Cricket/Archie Hopper, the cricket from Pinocchio who becomes Storybrooke's eccentric, yet bookish, human resident psychiatrist in the Real World. In animated form, he is Jiminy Cricket in The Enchanted Forest and a member of the War Council.

    *Jamie Dornan as Sheriff Graham, Storybrooke's handsome and authoritative sheriff with a mysterious past.

    *Robert Carlyle as Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold, the eponymous character and main antagonist from the fairy tale who becomes Storybrooke's wealthiest resident and pawnshop owner in the Real World. He helped build and owns the town. He brought Henry to Regina when Henry was a baby and used it to orchestrate Emma's arrival.


    Recurring

    *Anastasia Griffith as Annette, a spoiled girl with a very "royal" past.

    *Richard Schiff as King Leopold, Snow White's father.
    *Alan Dale as King George, Prince Charming's father, Emma's grandfather, Henry's great-grandfather, and Snow White's father-in-law
    *Eion Bailey as "The Stranger", whose presence will add to Storybrooke's mystery
    *Patti Allan as the Blind Witch/Ms. Ginger, the main antagonist from the Hansel and Gretel fairytale.

    I've seen the first 2 eps but I'm not sure if I like it yet or not. It's interesting for sure, but... I don't know. I'm just not super hooked yet. It's missing that fairy tail magic.
    The Sheriff does have my attention though... :panda_cheeky_haha:

    I love this series... it's got everything you want in a show... drama, comedy, suspense, horror...with just enough sexual tendencies to keep you interested. Though I will admit if it wasn't for my DVR I'd probably miss every episode because I'm so bad at remembering when it's on... or I'm busy watching K-Drama... lol.

    Oh and my favorite character is the Evil Queen/Regina (The Mayor) followed by Henry, and then Snow White/Mary Margaret...


    I'd like to see Aurora from Sleeping Beauty... it's my favorite story.

    I also like it very much. All those fairytale characters in a more understandable way... But I think that each episode ends too tragically that I literally feel pain when the ending credits start.
    Even though this series has a firmer storyline I prefer Grimm. Has anyone watched that one as well? it's quite powerful.

    Another thing I like is the names and the jobs the fairytale characters have in this world. But except for Mary Margaret/ Snow White non of the princes and princesses look that beautiful or you know Disney like.

    Spoiler for season finale:
    Spoiler


    I hope they have more of Jefferson in the next season. I love that character. That actor just nails it!

    I can't seem to like or care for Emma for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?

    I can't decide whether to watch this. The storyline sounds quite promising, but there seems to be lots of negative reviews about it. How would you guys rate it out of 10? :)

    Season 1 I'd give... hmm... because of Mr. Gold, Jefferson, Snow and Charming...

    8/10

    There are some things that are so awesome, but then some things, like Emma, where it's like ugh.
