I have a very dear friend who recommended this tv series to me. And I totally loved it! X)
Basicaly, its about fairy tales. The story begins with Emma, a 28-year-old woman, who received an inespected visit of her son, who she gave to adoption when she was 18. He asks her to go with him to where he lives now and he explains that everyone of that city is a fairy tale character and they were all cursed by the evil queen (who by the way is his adoptive mother :P). Then, the narrative goes to a time when those characters weren’t cursed and show how the Evil Queen did it during Snow White marriage to the Prince Charming. The Evil Queen wished that everyone would be ripped from their loved ones and would forget what they were. Later it shows that Snow had a baby (Emma) and she put her in a magical wardrobe to take her to a place where she would be safe from the curse. Emma then could lift the curse by returning and making the characters remember their history.
From this point on a very dynamic narrative goes on revealing the meetings, history and development of each fairy tale history with some modifications from the original Grimm’s stories, because they must co-exist after all :P
I truly recomend it. It has some suspense, and adventure, but above all romance. I keep cheering for Prince Charming remembering who Snow White is. They talk about true love and magic.. How could I ask for more!?
I watched the whole first season in 3 days :O and I can’t wait to the second Season..
