Once Upon a Fall Upfront

Fairy tales are clearly hot right now, at least if you're a network TV producer. NBC's Grimm looks straight-up terrible (although I enjoyed the creepiness of the mailman guy). The acting in ABC's Once Upon a Time is a slight improvement, but the CGI—well, the less said about that, the better.

Anyway, both of these look like shows I'll be nagging Megan to watch in the fall: groan-inducing, but possibly in a fun way.

I dunno; I like the lines and delivery from flannel-shirt sidekick in Grimm. Appropriately cheesy for a show that seems to otherwise be taking itself a bit too seriously.

Your link to ABC's Once Upon A Time was broken, but I just found a video trailer and... uh uh, no way. It has the actress who portrayed Cameron on House and she appears to be playing the same person here... and I did not miss her when she left House.

Thanks--I'll fix the link. Also, I was mostly surprised by how little they explained in the Once Upon a Time trailer. I mean, the other one looked straight-up terrible, but at least I understood what was going on....
