O is for Once Upon a Time #AtoZChallenge

Don't you just love that line: 'Once upon a time...'? There's just something about it that makes you want to lean forward, get comfy, smile and find out what happens next, right?
It's the beginning of countless wonderful tales we were read when we were children - Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Snow White, etc. But it's also the title of one of the best TV series out at the moment. Hands up those of you who are fans? C'mon... you know who you are!
I know I am. A huge fan.

I mean I adored all these fairy tales when I was a kid, so to have a series aimed at older (!) kids now is just a dream come true. The casting of the TV show is simply brilliant, in my eyes. Ginnifer Goodwin, for instance, makes the perfect Snow, don't you think? And Hook - well, the gorgeous Colin O'Donoghue (ok, I had to Google that) is well, gorgeous! I'm a huge fan of Robert Carlyle, always have been, so to have him play Rumplestiltskin is genius. I absolutely loved Pinochio and I admit I cried when, well you know. Sigh... wonderful!


  1. I haven't seen this one yet, because I know as soon as I do I'll be hooked. I wont want to do anything but watch it.

  2. Stopping by from the #atozchallenge !

    I do love that opening. And I think the show is really great. Rumpelstiltskin is my favorite character.
