rumpelstiltskin once upon a time 'Once Upon a Time': What did you think?“Once Upon a Time” debuted on ABC Sunday night – what did you think of the new fairytale-based drama?

We were huge fans of this pilot. In fact, it might have been our favorite new show of the season. It’s ambitious, it’s full of action and drama and it’s something the whole family can enjoy. Don’t get us wrong – we love a good “Dexter” or “Mad Men,” but there need to be shows everyone can watch and “Once Upon a Time” definitely fits the bill while still being high quality programming.

We found the Evil Queen to be particularly compelling – Lana Parrilla manages to be sympathetic, even as the villain. Emma Swan was also a fun heroine and little Henry is also adorable. But what we’re most looking forward to is the world being fleshed out to include more characters.

The executive producers tell Zap2it that the show will continue to “toggle between both worlds” and that we can look forward to meeting Prince Charming’s father, Cinderella, Maleficent, the Magic Mirror and many others. They also teased that Sheriff Graham’s identity is something that will be revealed in the first few episodes.

So, what did you think?
