New ABC tv series 'ONCE UPON A TIME'

Once Upon A Time is a new fairytale drama on ABC. I caught the pilot episode last week and was BLOWN AWAY! Thinking about it makes me giddy 'cause I'm so excited about this new show!

The main fairytale characters so far (in the first episode) are Snow White and Prince Charming - but there are many others (Rumpelstiltskin, Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio) all entwined into the same place and story. I don't want to re-tell the plot because you have to go see it yourself! It reminds me a little of Enchanted because of the fairytale characters living in the modern world/reality. But Once Upon A Time is way more involved and AMAZING. 

I just can't get over how good I think this will be. Check out some of the character posters! They look incredible. And magical. Especially the Evil Queen & Snow White. I am squealing internally right now.

Jennifer Morrison plays Emma, Snow White's daughter and the only person that can rescue the fairytale characters from the real world and give them back their happy endings. 
Ginnifer Goodwin (love her!!!) plays Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard which I think is perfect. 

I'm not that familiar with the other actors but I just checked the wikipedia page and I'm excited for Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam from True Blood!) who will be Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty's villain). She should stir up some delicious trouble. :)

Time to stop rambling now. 
Normally I'd put TV show posts up on my blog Pen&PepperDreams but I thought it would fit nicely here because fairytale stories are my favourite to read. 
I hope this post enticed you to check out Once Upon A Time if you haven't already, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
