We all grew up hearing (and watching) fairytales such as Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, but ABC's Once Upon a Time
takes it to a whole new level in this fascinating drama. In fairytale land, where all those characters we have loved for as long as we can remember live the evil queen has placed a curse that has transported them to the modern-day world. Nobody had any memories of their past life, with the exception of the evil queen (Regina) and Rumplestiltskin (Mr. Gold in the new world). Regina's adopted son finds his real mother, Emma Swan, and brings her to Storybrooke, telling her she is the key to unlocking the curse. The curse is indeed unlocked, but a whole new set of problems arrive when magic is unleashed on the small town.
