From Book to TV #2

I have this habit to watch any tv show/ movie based on book. Many times, they're just crab, but I haven't let that stop me! So I'd like to introduce some of those tv shows/ movies! If you'd like to participate, just leave a comment and a link to your own blog post!

This times serie is fairly new, too, since only two episodes has been aired.

once upon a time

From the inventive minds of Lost executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis comes a bold new imagining of the world, where fairy tales and the modern-day are about to collide.

And they all lived happily ever after – or so everyone was led to believe. Emma Swan 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 starts to change. Henry is now 10 years old and in desperate need of Emma’s help. He believes that Emma actually comes from an alternate world and is Snow White and Prince Charming’s missing daughter.
According to his book of fairytales, they sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen’s curse, which trapped the fairytale world forever, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world. 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.

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.

This show is loosely based on our favorite stories. I just had to pick this, since there's only two episodes aired.

I really didn't know what expect since this show has the same executive producers as Lost did. And I didn't like Lost (*gasp* old ladies clutching their pearls). So far, I've enjoyed watching this show. I just wish there was less flashbacks and more present day, but hopefully the back story will be explained soon enough. I absolutely adore Robert Carlyle, just love him! Hopefully he's not a totally bad guy, as usually.

Again, it's hard to say anything more about the show, but so far, I've enjoyed it. And soon there will be episode three, yay!

It's really good so far. The slight cheesiness of it made me cringe a little, but what can you expect from a story based on fairy tales? I think the actors are fabulous though. They're really really good. And the twists are awesome. Rumpelstiltskin is a diabolical mastermind~ :P

Yeah, he really is! And I may have also shed few tears, or many many tears, especially when Prince Charming was hit with the sword. And the baby thing at the same scene, of course. I cry always when there's babies. Don't ask why!
