When “Once Upon A Time” started back in 2011 I absolutely loved it. That first season was so much fun. I loved the heroes and I loved the villains (Regina aka the Evil Queen is awesome). Unfortunately seasons 2 and 3 weren’t quite as enchanting, but I kept watching in the hopes that the show would recapture that spark that made it so enjoyable in the beginning. I rarely give up on shows after I’ve gotten invested in them, even when I probably should. There have been exceptions, of course, but I generally soldier on until the show is cancelled and finally put out of its misery. Luckily everything started to turn back around in season 4 of “Once Upon A Time”. The first half of the season included characters from “Frozen” which was just OK, but the second half of the season revolved around the villains. That’s when it got fun again. And season 5 has been great so far. It’s definitely one of my favorite shows this year (probably second to “Doctor Who,” but I’m sure that’s not a surprise). I’ve just got my fingers crossed that “Once Upon A Time” continues to be so entertaining.
As a side note, the actor and actress that play Snow White and Prince Charming on “Once Upon A Time” are also off-screen husband and wife. I read somewhere that they are big Disney fans, which I greatly admired. Then one day this spring I saw them at Disneyland with their new baby! I was star struck, but I didn’t want to bother them by being a fangirl. So I just watched as they walked past me. Imagine seeing Snow White and Prince Charming at Disneyland!
