Friday Favorites

So I've decided to start a new feature this year and I'm hoping to stick with it. That was one of my New Years Resolutions – to stick with things.

Anyway, every Friday I'm going to feature my favorite thing that week. Whether it be a book, a movie, a TV show, a new gadget, a quote, a tip etc.

Today it's a TV show.

ONCE UPON A TIME is my favorite show this year. I absolutely love it. It has everything: great story telling (think Lost), great characters, a spin on fairy tales, fantasy, real life, love, villians, an evil witch. I could go on and on.

If you are one those people who don't really watch TV, I highly recommend watching this one. A new episode airs on Sunday on ABC - check your local listings.

Here's a clip to let you get a feel for what you can expect.


Is anyone else watching this? If not what's your favorite TV show?

I love seeing what new features bloggers are adding! Cool. I started watching the first couple shows and I didn't fall head over heels. To me? The costuming was too obvious so it had this low budget film feel that I couldn't get past. I could look past that but I just don't think it hooked me enough. But I know lots of people who love it.

I started watching it one night and couldn't stop. I haven't seen it since, but I could see how it would get addicting.

I'm afraid I don't watch tv, but if I do it's usually PBS. We finally have cable, but with 77 channels, there's usually nothing on.

I started watching it when it first came on, but after 2 episodes I got swept into a whirlwind of outside stuff and totally lost track of it. :o(

But what you described is how I feel about Grimm! LOVE that show. Too much good tv totally trying to wreck my writing time, lol

I've been watching so little television lately, that I haven't seen this or much else :/

Sounds intriguing though ...

I've heard a lot about this show, but as I avoid TV like my ex-wife I won't get to see it. Who knows, I may rent the DVD some time.

Not on British screens, I so hope we get it at some point as I loved that trailer.

My whole family watches this together every week. We LOVE it!! :-)

I love that show too. Although I am at a loss because series 2 of Downton Abbey comes on PBS this Sunday at the same time. One of them will have to be watched online...I just haven't decided which one yet.

ooh, what a great feature!
I was watching, got three episodes in, but then we got behind and the DVR got full and something had to go.

I watched one episode but quickly became confused.

I fell in love with Criminal Minds after I bought the first season for research (for my YA horror novel) after someone recommendation. My husband got the hint and bought me seasons 2-4 for Christmas (because I can never get to watch it on TV).

COOL video! Now I'm sad, cuz I don't have TV channels. Sniff. I'd really like to watch that one!! Looks fabulous, my kinda show.
