Great series!
29 December 2018 | by mleskovjSee all my reviews

Too many people with the low scores are comparing it to once upon a time which you can't. It's supposed to be an essence of the fairy tales with its own story background. Not a fantasy but real world drama and thrills. Sure maybe it starts off slow but give it a chance an you'll be hooked! I'm glad to hear a second season will be coming.
