What's with all the fairy tale shows?
But I've noticed the copycat shows are starting to come out of the woodwork. Grimm; Mirror, Mirror; Snow White and the Huntsman...and there are probably more that will pop up like poison poppies in an Ozymandian meadow.
I don't understand the copycat syndrome. Has no one the ability or the desire to create an original story? "They" say there are no original ideas. I disagree. Yes, fairy tales have been around for ages, but the creators of "Once Upon a Time" have taken the genre to another level. That's what I'm talking about.
Here and now I challenge creative people everywhere to THINK! Go for a walk. Take a trip. Clear your head. Ride a horse. Wash a dog. Bake a pie. DO SOMETHING! Color outside the lines. Think outside the box. Don't worry about what everyone else says -- write what's in your heart. Believe in yourself. Believe in others.
Rant complete. Carry on.
