Warning: If you buy this, you will be addicted to the show.
Purchase all of the series, you won't regret it. Or you might if you are not into amazing plots with episodes that blend in your childhood stories with adult tragedies, magic, dragons, bad guys who are not exactly bad and good guys who are not exactly good.

Exactly what I've been wanting!
This is one of the best television series one will find to watch. It's doesn't have "filth" that most other shows have these days. It's about time that a decent series come on that the entire family can sit down and watch together. Now that I own it, passing it down to my grandchildren will be a pleasure.

I enjoy the hell outta this show...
I don't usually watch a lot of modern, US shows, usually because the writings bad, the characters are smart-asses and unsympathetic, or the subject matter is exploitative or offensive to me. Nonetheless, I found myself colliding with 'Once Upon a Time' on the internet due to its remarkably dedicated fanbase. The premise sounded interesting, the ideas sounded pretty original...Rumpelstiltskin looked awesome as hell.
So I checked it out. And, though it's by far not a perfect show, it didn't disappoint. It delivers the laughs, the melodrama and heart-ache, the great characters and character development, the crazy fantasy, and some pretty dark undertones, sometimes. The characters, though, are what make this show exceptionally good. It's refreshing to see such strong female leads in a mainstream show--for once women are treated as people rather than sex-objects or merely as counterparts for the men. Here, the dudes are the counterparts, for the most part.
And then Rumpelstiltskin is just Rumpelstiltskin. He's just awesome in every imaginable way possible. Then again, I'm a pretty dedicated Carlyle fan, so I may be a little biased. His acting is brilliant, his costumes are great, the writing is great--despite being a "monster", he's actually the most interesting character on the show, and he's arguably got the most tragic backstory (not to spoil anything). He's ridiculously sympathetic considering he looks like a lizard in disco-gear.
And, just as a side note...are there just not a lot of male fans of this show, or what? I'm, like, one of the very few that I know of. Dudes, get it on the ball! This is an awesome show! WATCH IT AND GEEK OUT.Read full review

Great show! Definately worth the time and money :))
The show is very easy to get into and follow if you watch from episode one. Though the graphics are a bit low quality at times, its an amazing storyline. It's taken every bit of strength not to watch it all at once!

A Very Pleasant Experience!
I Love the TV series. It's a very entertaining show with twist and turns. I love the fact that they use the Disney movies & fairy tales I grew up with exciting upgrades. The only thing I was upset about is one of the DVDs was scratched which wasn't the seller's fault considering it was brand new. This is a family show that is loved by people from all walks of life.
