Lovers of fairytales and adventure are bound to enjoy Once Upon a Time. A television show that lives in two different worlds, OUAT is one of those shows that if you’re not watching it, then you should be. In my total and complete biased opinion, Once Upon a Time is one of the best and most original television shows out there right now. Aren’t convinced that you should delve into the storybook world and watch this show? Well let me help persuade you with a few reasons why you should be glued to your screen every Sunday night:
1. Captain Hook
The swashbuckling pirate may be a villain, but there’s a good side to everyone. And if you ask me, his good side is every side.
Ah, the character you feel guilty about loving because he is just downright awful. He makes the show—creepy little laugh and all.
3. Beloved characters are brought to life
Don’t tell me you’ve never wanted to see Snow White be a strong, kick-butt woman as opposed to that weakling Disney portrayed. The characters you loved as kids are brought to life in a whole new and refreshing way.
4. Twists and Turns
Just when you think you’ve got the storyline figured out, BAM, the writers hit you with a twist that leaves you reeling. Certain characters are more than what they appear. For example, Rumplestiltskin is not only himself but is the crocodile from Peter Pan as well. Sorry if that spoiled anything for you, but you should really have been watching the show from the beginning. (And that’s really not a vital storyline twist, so calm down.)
5. Snow and Charming
Okay, so Snow White and Prince Charming’s little love story can be so mushy it makes you want to puke, but their whole story of how they will always find each other is a great testament about what the show is all about: love and family.
6. The costumes
When the characters are in the Enchanted Forest, the costumes are spectacular. I am envious of the clothes and wish I could pull off some of the extravagant garbs they get to don. The Evil Queen easily has some of the best costumes ever. The villains always get the coolest clothes.
