Programming note: Our coverage of Once Upon a Time is substantial but incomplete.

Once upon a time there was a town in Maine called Storybrooke, where the fairy tales characters we've known since before we can remember are trapped in our world by a curse cast by the Evil Queen. Everything changes when a boy named Henry learns the truth through a book, and contacts his birth mother Emma, who is destined to bring the curse to an end. Now it's up to Henry and Emma to make the inhabitants of Storybrooke remember who they are and why they are there. Once Upon a Time is occasionally cheesy, but that only makes it more delicious.
