User Reviews

 
A current world view of fairy tales.
15 November 2018 | by tnokozSee all my reviews

One of the most unique and innovative views of telling a fairy tale in modern day society. It may take an episode or two to figure out who the characters are in reference to the particular fairy tale being told. I noticed another viewer had to bring politics into this but politics has NOTHING to do with this series. Not sure what that other viewers problems are but that is his/her issue. I love this series and I hope others do also. Enjoy.
