Watch the first 9 minutes of ABC’s enchanting new drama & tell us: Will you be watching tonight?

Kristen Stewart and Lily Collins aren’t the only Snow Whites in town. Premiering Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. on ABC, Once Upon A Time introduces us to Ginnifer Goodwin, a new kind of Snow White — one with no happy endings whatsoever.

She and the rest of the fairy tale creatures we all know and love have had their “happily ever after”s stolen from them by an evil queen (the bananas-good Lana Parrilla), who banishes them all to the real world, where they are frozen in time in a quaint — yet slightly hellish — town called Storybrooke.

But before they queen’s curse takes hold, Snow White sends her baby into the real world, as prophecy foretells the child will return on her 28th birthday to break the evil curse and free them all. Enter Jennifer Morrison as Emma, the unknowing daughter of Snow White…

Now, I know what you’re thinking: Fairy tales? That’s for the babies. But trust me, this show will blow your mind. I mean, it’s from the writers of Lost. LOST! Remember that show?

I’ve seen the first few episodes, and trust me, this show is absolutely worth testing out. Not only will the pilot prove to be one of the most original hours of TV you’ll see all season, but it weaves a story that will have you hooked. I promise.

Watch the first 9 minutes of Once Upon A Time below, then tell us if you’ll be checking it out at 8 p.m. tonight on ABC!
