Sci Fi Sunday

Currently watching:

Once Upon A Time, ABC, 8 pm Sundays

What if Snow White and Prince Charming didn’t get their happily ever after? What if the story continued — and they were cursed to live in the real world? That’s the premise of ABC’s new show, Once Upon A Time. The all-star cast includes Jennifer Morrison as the outsider who is brought to Storybrooke, Maine, by the son she gave up for adoption ten years earlier. Ginnifer Goodwin, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla and Raphael Sbarge round out the cast of characters. Aside from some really beautiful people — it’s been a while since I’ve seen a show with this many stunning main characters — the pilot is engaging and the story line intriguing. I’ll be watching eagerly to see how ABC develops this series. Highly recommended, seems like it would be okay for the ten-and-up crowd.

  1. We have this recorded and all set for this evening. Very excited about this show. Love Robert Carlyle. Am I the only person who gets Jennifer Morrisona dn Ginnifer Goodwin confused a little? I keep wanting them to be the same person with a new haircolor…

    • I know what you mean about Ginnifer/Jennifer, but I’ve always distinguished them by their cheeks. Ginnifer has round cheeks, Jennifer does not.

      LOVE Robert Carlyle too! And the pilot was SO good….I’m excited. Even the Hubs said it was just evil enough to keep his interest (hah).

  3. This wasn’t on my radar but it looks like a lot of fun.

    • So far, it seems like a lot of fun! I do love a good twisted fairy tale.

      • Okay, I’ve watched it. My husband was off doing something and left me with the TV. I watched 3 episodes back to back suddenly realizing it was 11:30 and time for bed. Then two more back to back again losing track of time and almost starting a third episode at 11:15. Then I’ve found myself falling asleep trying to figure out what Henry wants to call Emma for a code name that she’s “not ready for”. This has totally absorbed my thoughts since Sunday.
