The story opens on Emma’s (Jennifer Morrison) birthday. A bounty hunter, she has severed all ties and lives a solitary existence. All that changes when Henry (Jared Gilmore) shows up at her door, claiming to be the son she gave up for adoption years before. He now lives in the town ofStorybrooke,Maine. And he claims the town is filled with fairy tale characters who don’t remember who they are because they are trapped in a curse that only Emma can break. The creator of this curse? Snow White’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) evil step-mother (Lana Parrilla), who also happens to be Henry’s adopted mom.
Emma puts no stock in Henry’s claims. But after meeting Henry’s mom, she thinks something isn’t right so she decides to stick around. And things begin to happen. Maybe Henry’s theory isn’t so crazy after all.
Meanwhile, we also get to take trips to the fairy tale kingdoms that were. Even here, not everything is quite how we know it to be as the creators put their unique twists on the familiar stories, making them richer and lots of fun.
Of course, the fairy tale world is also where I have my only real gripe – special effects. Any time they try to do anything too elaborate, it shows. But I’m having such a good time I can quickly dismiss that.
Because the story that they are telling is so good. It pulled me in from the pilot and each of the episodes here grabbed me just as much. Usually, I find both Storybrooke and the Fairy Tale world equally compelling.Read more ›
Now about the show - best show I have seen in a long time. I have never wanted to own a series until now. Prime time AND still ok for kids to watch!?! Count me in!

An incredible series. Can't wait for the second season. Such imagination. But then it's from the same writes who penned "Lost".Published on May 15, 2012 by Barbara
