Once Upon a Time Season 2 Trailer

That's the preview for the second season of Once Upon a Time. There's talk of Mulan and Captain Hook and other interesting things. Which also makes me weary, I admit. Is it just me or are most of the best parts of the show independent of the Disney film inspirations? I know I am in the minority and I am grateful the show is a breakout hit since it has people talking and reading fairy tales, too, but I wish I could mash this one up with Grimm, take my favorite parts, add some more and make the show that I would adore.

I am pleased that the ending of last season blew things up and gives us a whole new premise for Season 2 though.

Season 1 has been steadily dropping in price on DVD all week, too, unless it pops up again in price before this post goes live.


  1. I agree, I love the fairytale inspiration, but are the disney references (such as costumes) essential? After all, it's not like Disney made up the fairytales, they existed long before that! I love the darker elements this one throws in!

  2. I like Once because it has more old-fashioned fantasy but I like Grimm a little bit because of their ability to draw on some stuff that's outside the well-known stuff (like the Japanese spider episode). What I really wish is that they would draw on some of the less famous fairy tales out there, because there are so many awesome tales that are not so familiar. As it stands, my favorite fairy tale show remains Jim Henson's The Story Teller, because it introduced the (HBO watching) world to stuff like "Hans, My Hedgehog" and "The Heartless Giant".
