Happy Saturday friends and lovers of Stories.

It’s been a while since I found the time to manage a Saturday post, but since quite a while I actually wanted to talk about some things that I love besides reading. So “I’m Obsessed With…” will be a loose feature  where I’m going to post once in a while about things I’m obsessed about, like TV shows, movies and other things!


And today…..

I’m Obsessed with  Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time

Watch Once Upon a Time on Sundays at 8|7c on ABC.

The stories you grew up with are true. The residents of Storybrooke are living proof… Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (Lost, Tron:Legacy) invite you to a bold new vision of the world where fairytales and the modern day are about to collide.

Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) knows how to take care of herself. She’s a 28-year-old bail bonds collector who’s been on her own ever since she was abandoned as a baby. But when the son she gave up years ago finds her, everything will change. Henry (Jared Gilmore) is 10 years old now and in desperate need of Emma’s help. Henry believes that Emma actually comes from an alternate world … and is Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) missing daughter. According to his book of fairytales, they sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen’s (Lana Parilla) curse, which trapped the fairytale world forever, frozen in time. Of course Emma doesn’t believe a word, but when she brings Henry back to Storybrooke, she finds herself drawn to this unusual boy and his strange New England town. Concerned for Henry, she decides to stay for a while, but she soon suspects that Storybrooke is more than it seems. It’s a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close … where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don’t remember who they once were – including the Evil Queen who is now Henry’s foster mother. The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell. 

Brace yourself for a modern fable with thrilling twists and hints of darkness. Brimming with wonder, and filled with the magic of our most beloved fairytales, Once Upon A Time is a fitting follow up to Lost from two master storytellers.

I freaking love this show!!! Like so much! When I first heard about it a few years ago I wasn’t convinced I would like it and never started it. But then a few weeks ago I saw a pretty good offer on iTunes for Season 1 and … damn it I was hooked!! This show is in Season 3 right now, so right now I’m again late to the game.

What I love About This Show?

  • Love Romance – and the happily ever after! This show is all about how love can cure it all. That family matters but that love it what family is based off. It’s like in the fairy tales, a kiss from your true love can cure it all.. Awwww, my heart is melting guys!
  • Kick Ass Heroines and Heroes!!  This show is filled with kick ass woman that fight against the evil and damn it I love it! So often male heroes play centre stage, yet on Once Upon a Time the woman are the ones who REALLY kick ass! They are strong, loyal and bad ass!
  • Magic! Well, when I read books I love reading paranormal books and .. I also love paranormal TV series and Once Upon a Time definitely falls perfectly in this category! As much as I love to dream while reading, I also want to dream while watching TV.
  • Contemporary Setting mixed with Fairy Tale Adventures! The series is switching back and forth between the actual fairy tales and the contemporary setting and they fit seamlessly together. Much more awesome that I would have ever imaged when I started watching this show!
  • Amazing Sceneries and Settings! Love the CGI and wonderful scenery in this show! It’s the perfect combination to dream and let your imaginations flow! Captain Hook
  • Some Hot Men! Yeah, I’m shallow here, but .. well, I love watching TV shows with some nice to look at man! And.. there are some great characters you’ll meet. Like Prince Charming (cute!!? ) and Pinocchio (sexy!), The Huntsmen (Season 1 – now being cast for the leading role in Shades of Grey)
  • Captain Hook! Oh Girls…  In Season 2 Captain Hook enters the show I was (duuh) hooked! He’s the perfect bad boy with lots of attitude and snark, just basically the same type of Bad-Boy I love in literature! And, Captain Hook is a pirate (well, of coursE) and … damn it if that is not sexy as hell!

I’m in the middle of Season 2 right now and .. yes I am Obsessed with it right now!!

    I LOVE Once Upon A Time! It’s one of the shows I’m actually up to date with right now…and waiting for the second half of season three to start is really hard!
    I love everything you love about the show too!
    As for favourite characters…it’s hard to go past Hook…but I honestly love almost every character on the show!
    Oh and just wanted to say that I like the idea of your “I’m Obsessed With…” feature and I’m looking forward to seeing what else you’re obsessed with!

    I don’t think I got to see Pinocchio what does he look like? I missed this show for a while but thankfully I got to see most of Neverland which was intense and of course Hook who I definitely love. And yes I love how all the women can kick butt, mainly Emma and Snow cus they are real fighting and not using magic. Omg I need the new season to hurry up and I hope I get to see more of what I missed.

  3. I am… so in love with this show too. I caught up late last year and there is a character that I love that I probably shouldn’t because I’m pretty sure the actor is barely 18, but he’s so good! I can’t wait until you get caught up to see what you think of some later revelations in Season 2 🙂 (Also, Hook. He could keep me watching this show if everything else went to crap. His character only gets better and better.)

      • Yessssssssssssss – Pan is so. I just, I can’t even. Robbie Kay is such an amazing actor. When I realized that eventually Pan wouldn’t be staying on the show, I was horribly sad. He played that character so well and so on point and I wanted him to stick around forrreverrrrr. I love the way they twisted up the Darlings’ story, and I was a bit disappointed that there was no Rufio at all. 🙁

        And I agree. I love Hook. I think he’s a great character and he’s showing a lot of personal growth and I want Emma with him. But I also want Emma with Neal, I don’t think they were really given a fair shot. But then I want her with Hook… then I want her with Neal.. I just.. this show man, this show.

  4. […] (via) Denne serien har jeg gløtter litt på når den har gått på TV, men har null flyt og null peiling på hva serien egentlig handler om. Så dette kommer til å bli spennende! Itillegg har jeg flere venner som har pushet på meg at jeg MÅ se den, så nå blir det gjort! […]
