This is my youngest daughter Alexis...we call her Lexi.  We were at Target and she found a Rocking Elmo and couldn't help herself and had to DANCE.  Isn't she awesome.

Once upon a time...

Once upon a time is a hour long fantasy drama on ABC. From IMDB..."Centers on a woman with a troubled past who is drawn into a small town in Maine where the magic and mystery of Fairy Tales may just be real."  Basically here is the break down...The Evil Queen has put a curse on all the people from Fairy Tale land and they now all live in the town of Storybrooke, Maine. Every person in the town is from on of the classic fairy tales and has no idea who they acutally are.  The only one in the town that actually knows what is going on is the mayor, who just happens to be the Evil Queen.  The main character is Jennifer Morrison who plays Snow Whites daughter, even though no one really knows that she is her daughter.  The evil queen adopted a baby boy that is acutally Snow Whites daughter's son, essentially Snow Whites grandson.  He is the only one, beside the Evil Queen, that has any idea that everyone is from a Fairy Tale.  The show is actually shot very well, they go back and forth fueling the story line from Fairy Tale land and modern time.  In this way they are able to introduce you to each character and give you the back story without wasting alot of time on nonsense.  Unlike alot of shows on TV they have the ability to keep you wanting more by giving you enough of the mystery without giving it all away too fast.  According to the notes from the directors you will have the full mystery figured out by the end of the first season.  Reviews so far are good from both critics and fans, so ABC has ordered a full 22 episode season and plans on a 2nd season already.  All in all I would give this show a 4 out of 5 stars.  My only concern is the ability to move forward with more seasons...if we are going to know the full mystery by the end of this season I would really like to know what direction they plan on going in the future. I would like to hear your comments...If you have seen it, do you like or dislike the show? If you haven't seen it, would you consider seeing it based on what you have read here? Thanks and see you soon!

And in the beginning...
