5 Reasons to watch 'Once Upon A Time'

Updated:

By: Amanda Taylor, KSL

"Once Upon a Time" is an ABC show that has something for everyone: fairy tales with a twist, sword fights, great hair and hilarious moments between legendary characters like Snow White, Dr. Frankenstein and Captain Hook.

It's also an upbeat show about hope, love and determination to create a happy ending. So why aren't you watching? Here are five reasons you should:

Fun to see your favorite characters

So much of the excitement of the show in the early days came from being introduced to an ordinary townsperson in Storybrooke, then trying to guess what fairy tale character they were in the Enchanted Forest.

Great dialogue

Throughout perilous situations and tests of mettle, the characters keep it snappy with sarcasm and innocence of the world outside the Enchanted Forest.

Belle: "It's Pandora's box. Legend says it contains the world's darkest evil."

Ariel: "Shouldn't you be wearing gloves or something?"

Ariel: "I'm not afraid of you or your gun, and not just because I don't know what it is."

Adults, not teens

The show is family friendly, but for a different type of family. Not a mother, father, sister, brother type, but a bunch of adults navigating real-life issues and a lifetime of experiences.

Aesthetic appeal

Not only are all the princes (and pirates) dashing, charming and handsome, and all the princesses (and fairies) are beautiful, but the costumes are also masterful and the hair and makeup team works overtime to give the characters an otherworldly quality.

Emma is awesome

The heroine of the show is a reluctant hero with a heart full of love, someone who is at once relatable and inspiring. She navigates a lot of curveballs with realistic skepticism, ultimately coming to the rescue whenever she is needed.

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
