HEY GUYS! SOOO ABOUT A YEAR AGO NOW I STARTED WATCHING ONCE UPON A TIME AND IT DID BECOME ULTIMATE FAVOURITE TV SHOW…UNFORTUNATELY I DON’T WATCH IT AS MUCH NOW DUE TO THE REPETITION OF EACH SEASON BUUUUT I’VE GOT TO SAY IT IS DEFINITELY WORTH CHECKING OUT!
The cast is absoulutely stunning and they play a huge role of course in the success of this show. Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison shine in their roles, Robert Carlyle also does an amazing job at portraying his character and many others do the same. As each season goes on you can defiantly see how far the actors have come and how well they portray their character in each season! I’m truly impressed with the entire ensemble and all their hard work to make this TV show improve each season!
FAIRY-TALES WITH A TWIST:
I adore the whole concept to this show as it is based around fairy-tales that we all grew up knowing and dreaming about but these fairy tales are not told as you know them. The good can be bad and bad can be good in this TV show. The show does a remarkable job at weaving all the fairy-tales together and how each fairytale character from one story might cross over with another. Rumpelstiltskin defiantly crosses over to many of the characters such as Snow White, The Evil Queen, Cinderella and many more… Rumpelstiltskin does have a very key role in this TV show! The show often balances dual stories in a single episode – one in the pre-cursed fairytale realm, and the other in present day Storybrooke. Shows like these are definitely difficult to achieve but I think ‘Once’ is doing everything right.
THE ROMANCE IS LITERALLY A FAIRYTALE:
Who doesn’t like romance that is swoon worthy? The ongoing romance between Snow White and Prince Charming is beautiful and definitely very sweet. They constantly get separated from each other but they have a saying “No matter where you go I will always find you.” (Awww). Let’s get to my OTP for this show now and that is Emma and Hook I ship them to the end of the earth and if this ship goes down I promise you I will go down with it! From the moment they met I was defiantly shipping them and the little moments they have between each other just have me swooning all over the place!
Most episodes of Once take place half in the real world, half in fairy-tale world. And fairy-tale world looks crazy but in a phenomenal way! The CGI really brings the magic and fairy tale aspects of the show to life!
THE BAD-ASS FEMALE CHARACTERS:
So your typical fairy tales usually feature a damsel in distress right? Well you’re most likely not going to see that in this TV Show…Snow White is a kickass warrior princess who saves the prince before he saves her. Red Riding Hood is the wolf. Mulan is there. It is all simply epic to see so many strong female characters all in one show! Not even age has limits to being bad-ass because Granny has a cross brow and boy she isn’t afraid to use it at all! With this show you will never be lacking for story lines involving cool women.
THE PLOT TWISTS ARE JAW-DROPPING:
With every season there are amazing plot twists and shocking moments which simply leave you gasping out loud! Honestly when I finished season 3 I was left with so many with many questions that I couldn’t not watch season 4 and get answers… The same thing happened to me with season 4 the plot twist was simply mind blowing and heart wrenching! With Once you will defiantly need to catch your breath!
SWOON WORTHY GUYS:
My favourite male characters are Hook and Graham who give me heart eyes every time they appear on screen! Hook has this sarcastic, cocky and arrogant character but his life hasn’t been easy for him and let’s just say the moment we met Captain Hook I instantly adored him… Hmm maybe I have a thing for sarcastic guys who wear leather? Graham is a total sweetie and never, ever forget that before he was Christian Grey, Jamie Dornan was the Sheriff/Huntsman.
