ichinichinemasu: (Sleepy Arthur)
So, I saw the advertisements for Once Upon a Time and thought it was a television show right up my alley. I love fantasy, I love fairy tales, I love the idea of setting these into a modern context...and it's by the writers of Lost! Okay, I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but I did like Lost for the first few seasons it was on. However, I saw a pretty bad review of the first episode on io9, to the tune of "it's sooo cheesy," so I avoided it.

Then I started hearing other things from non-critics about it. My family said it looked good, [ profile] anthropotree told me other fans liked it, and Tommy said he watched it (which surprised me...until I remembered he's just a closeted nerd. He watches Pawn Stars! And enjoys superhero movies. Enough said). So then I gave in and watched an episode. And promptly devoured all six or seven episodes that are out so far, in two days. Yeah, it's cheesy. But I like the feel-good fairy tale setting. It's an awesome show to watch when you're feeling down, and need to cheer yourself up and turn your brain off for a while. Put it this way: if you enjoy camp, you'll enjoy this. But don't take my word for it, all the episodes are streaming on With only limited commercial interruption! Come on, someone else has to tell me I'm not crazy.
