About Once Upon A Time
"Once upon a time" is the beginning of many classic fairytales told throughout history. However, the ABC fantasy-drama TV series may not have the classic happy ending that everyone has grown so accustomed to. "Once Upon a Time" puts a new spin on the most popular classic fairytales including "Snow White" and "Rumpelstiltskin.” The series starts out with Henry, an adopted 10-year-old boy who travelled to another city to locate his biological mom Emma. He convinces her to accompany him home, but on the ride home, he informs her that she and all the other residents of StoryBrooke are members of fairytale stories who were banished to StoryBrooke by an evil Queen. Of course, she thought the little boy must have a few screws loose and it did not help matters that she encountered his shrink upon arriving in StoryBrooke. In StoryBrooke, Emma notices that the town's clock shows 8:15, but Henry informs her that the hands on the clock have never moved and time stood still in the town. He figured that if he brought Emma back, time would move again and the battle can begin to take down the evil Queen, whom Henry thinks is his adopted mother. Emma tries to convince Henry that his adopted mom loves him and life as an orphan could have been harder. From the outside perspective, it could be easy to assume that Henry is just a bitter adopted little boy with an overactive imagination, but you may begin to lean towards more fantastical possibilities when the seemingly frozen town clock begins to tick.
