About the TV show

There is a town in Maine where every story book character you've ever known is trapped between two worlds, victims of a powerful curse. Only one knows the truth and only one can break the spell. Emma Swan is a 28-year-old bail bonds collector who has been supporting herself since she was abandoned as a baby. Things change for her when her son Henry, whom she abandoned years ago, finds her and asks for her help explaining that she is from a different world where she is Snow White's missing daughter.

I loved the series in the beginning, but simply think it was pulled too long - which is just a shame. They should have stopped the series while the game was good.

Once upon a time is one of my favourite tv shows. It weaves stories together in such a beautiful tapestry. My favourite season is season 2 because the curse is broken. The fairytales characters are forced to navigate a world they are not used to, while Emma is whisked away to magic forest and forced to experience a life stolen from her. Its amazing fun. Plus we get the best two characters. Cora and Hook. Love them both so much. But the whole series even series 7 is enjoyable and really interesting and well written with great pace. There isn't a single bad episode

Really difficult to rate this, as I felt it started well (despite janky CGI). But 4 seasons in, it's feeling increasingly laboured. The CGI doesn't improve much

First 2-3 seasons were great. After that it became far too repetitive, predictable, and lost its edge. Began to feel like producers were trying to come up with anything just to prolong the story.

Once Upon a Time had the problem of not knowing when to let a good thing end. Some seasons just dragged on, and the reboot just felt like the writers couldn’t let go of the story.

I wanted to like this show so much! But then the characters started just doing things out of character to move the plot forward...over and over again. Also I think we’ve gotten past the cliche “In this season, [character] goes evil.” Or at least we should have.

Every time I’m sick I just come back to this masterpiece at times it’s quite cringe and there’s always something wrong but I really enjoy it, I’ve always loved fairytales and this show was a perfect match. Favourite character 👑Regina 👑

This show was pretty amazing, but it went on for much too long and tried to tie in too many stories and ideas. It became hard to watch by the end because so much was just repeating over and over.

All of the fairytales and Grimm tales combined together with a twist. A way to make villains show there true colours and if they’re capable of being good

One of my favourite shows of all time. I love everything about it and enjoy rewatching it. It's long enough that you don't always remember everything. It's got a great story and I feel emotional when watching it.
