Yes, I'm hooked on the television show
It fascinates me to see the mash up of fairy tale characters from Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, JM Barrie, L Frank Baum etc.. I'd move to -

My favorite fairy tale riff of late is ONCE.
First it was a wonderful movie from Ireland written and directed by John Carney.
The guy musician is the "Cinderella" character and the girl is the "Fairy Godmother."
Then it went to Broadway and won the Tony.
I had the privilege to see the original cast.
Yep, it was magic.
TAKE AWAY: There's more than one way to skin a cat, or tell a fairy tale.
Do you have a favorite fairy tale retell?
