Top 4 “Once Upon A Time” Episodes

[fusion_text]ouat-cover-01I’ve been watching Once Upon a Time for a really long time now.

But there are a few characters that, while not my favorite, really stick out to me.

And if they were real, I’d totally want to meet them – even if one of them would probably try to kill me.

I had planned to write a review of this album sometime, so why not now?
