…happily ever after, part 1

from www.watchwithmai.com

Last week we got not one, but two fairytale and folklore themed shows.  Makes sense, doesn’t it?  I mean it was Halloween.  But, to have two go head to head on different networks seemed to me to aggressively try to corner the market on whimsy, or something.  I was kind of ambivalent because if it was Whimsy we wanted, we never EVER should have cancelled Pushing Daisies (you hear me, ABC?  The facts were those!).  But, I Tivo’d both shows mostly to see why, or if, we needed two.  What was the difference?  Was this like Coke vs. Pepsi and would wind up as a matter of personal preference?  (For the record, don’t even think about putting Pepsi anywhere near me.)  And will that preference “split the vote” in a way and make the ratings-scared networks pull the plug on both, prematurely?

All fairytales begin “Once Upon A Time” so we will too.  Right off the bat, the best thing this show has going for it is that it is on ABC and has carte blanche
