Generally, there’s TV Sandy and Romance Sandy and rarely do the two meet. Most of the time, my taste in TV (which is kind of edgy) precludes my getting attached to the usual Lifetime or Hallmark Channel “romance” movies. True Blood? A series based on one of my favorite romance series? How often does that happen? But, based on the two episodes that have aired so far, there just might be a new series to brings my two sides together.
Created by two former Lost writers, Once Upon a Time is a series with parallel story lines, one that takes place in fairy tale world and another that takes place in the town of Storybrooke, Maine. In fairy tale land, the characters are cursed by the Evil Queen who condemns them to be banished to Storybrooke without their happy endings. In today’s world, they don’t know about their true identities and, in true Lost fashion, we follow the characters in fairy tale land and in the world today.
