23. Once Upon A Time
Stars: Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Lana Parrilla, Ginnifer Goodwin, James Dornan, Robert Carlyle, Giancarlo Esposito
Premiere Date: October 23
Why we’re excited: OK, don’t judge us. Yes, the trailer for Once Upon A Time looks like a bad Disney movie directed by Uwe Boll, and, fine, fairy tales are for little girls. But there’s just something so bizarre about ABC’s latest collaboration with TRON: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, two of Lost’s main scribes, that we can’t help but look forward to what could very well be a grand debacle.
If the above trailer lost you at “enchanted forest,” here’s the deal: Jennifer Morrison (House, M.D.) stars as a hot blonde who relocates to the New England town of Storybrooke, where classic fairy tale characters are trapped in modern times by the mayor, who’s also the Evil Queen from Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. Hey, at least it’s not another Extreme Makeover, or another gimmicky show hoping to recapture some of that Lost magic. Oh, right—Kitsis and Horowitz. Nevermind. Just wish for a happy ending.
