At first I thought this was a problem.
But then I thought, you know.... whatever. Trademark!
I've started watching Once Upon a Time with Kat.
The Evil Queen uses her magic to transport everyone from their Fairytale world to the real world. No one, save the queen can remember anything about their past lives.
Only Emma can save them from the curse.
This is prolly not going to be spoiler free, so continue at your own risk.
HOLY COW! I was not expecting to like it as much as I do. I was expecting it to be average, since out of the three people I know who watch it, two weren't very impressed.
I think it's brilliant.
I think it's brilliant.
Wow. I'm a little obsessed. Okay, a lot.
In fact, I only have one problem with it..... See, I usually have a really hard time with Modern Speak in fantasy. (In my opinion, American accents should not exist in fantasy, since fantasy is set in medieval times, [usually in England] and America wasn't even discovered until the 1400s. So it's inaccurate. Booya!) But in this one, I can overlook it. I think it's because my favorite character can are able to make it sound like Fantasy talk.
I love how the work two different worlds together.
I love seeing how they do fairytale characters so we know who they are, but twist their stories just a wee bit, so it's totally unique. :)
And I mostly love the costumes. There are some "hmmm" ones for the ladies. But all the guys have cool outfits.
Now, before you get all creeped out over Rumpelstiltskin's freakishness and scary makeup... believe me, the guy is a good actor (those of you who've seen Hamish Macbeth will understand.) And there's something oddly likeable about that little weirdo. He giggles funny, has a great accent, and he has a really sad back story.
And he doesn't always look like that.
Now, Prince Charming/David is a brilliant actor. He's such a sweetheart! And he fights like a boss.
He was fighting while holding his baby!!
Snow White I like more in the "real" world rather than in the Fairytale one, because the actress is just a touch too modern when she's in the fairytale world. She's a sweetie though.
I guess I'm not hugely fond of Emma. She does grow on you, but she's just a little too 'hard' for the role. (I also thought they should have gotten someone who looked twenty-eight rather than thirty-five. But that's just me. :)
The Evil Witch is SO EVIL. Suffice it to say she is mean and awful and steals ALL the happy endings for herself. *scowl* We hates her gutses, we do.
I'm so emotionally involved. Haha! It definitely ranks up there with DW, Sherlock, Psych, and Leverage for me. Or maybe I'm just in the perfect mood to watch it... but right now. Wow.
^^^^^ I LOVE that quote.
You should go find them and watch them.
That is all.
