Fr. Roderick*cough*) I finally got around to watching the pilot episode of Once Upon a Time. I will admit: I found it intriguing. I was able to see parallels to some very well-known fairy tales. It's very well written and very well acted. I can see why this show has appeal with many people.
Many are comparing Once Upon a Time with Lost. I've never heard of Lost, but then again, I never really was much of a TV watcher. (Must be the influence of those at SQPN...) So I'll leave it to those more knowledgeable to compare and contrast these two shows.
Admittedly, I'm watching more TV now than I did in the past several years combined. I also tried watching Pan Am, but I will admit that it hasn't really caught my attention as much as Once Upon a Time has done. I'll probably have a look at the next episode when I have a chance.
And I'm sure people will encourage me to have a look at Lost. Perhaps I will... one of these days.
In the meantime, speaking of SQPN, go to shows.sqpn.com to have a look at SQPN's line-up of podcasts. It also includes a little podcast with which I'm involved, Secrets of Harry Potter.
Related to this post, do listen to Secrets of Once Upon a Time. It's more than just a recap show. Fr. Roderick, Dave, and Lisa actually do some analysis and comparisons, using the Secrets formula that has worked for SQPN over these many years.
