Pretty basic question: Which of the following retelling of classic fairy tales do you prefer?

Once Upon A Time is a television series currently airing on ABC about fairy tale characters trapped in the modern world due to a curse placed by the evil queen Regina.

Grimm is a television series currently airing on NBC about a cop who, as a descendant of the Grimm family, must seek out and take down twisted versions of classic monsters.

Fables is a graphic novel series created by Bill Willingham about fairy tale characters who have taken refuge in New York City to escape the evil that is currently consuming their land.

Shrek is series of four movies created by Dreamworks about an ogre living in a world full of fairy tale parodies.

Ludwig Revolution is a manga series created by Kaori Yuki in which Prince Ludwig romances famous fictional princesses in gothic Germany.




As always, I'm sorry that the poll only allows for five options. I know that there are more than five fairy tale retellings in existence. If you don't know any of these, you can still just vote randomly for the CR points ;P

I voted for Shrek, because they're funny movies (until you've seen them too many times) and because I don't think I've seen the other options, although I have heard of some of them.

Oh Once Upon A Time is absolutly the best retelling! I mean you have to keep an open mind about the characters, the retelling of Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast, and heck even Rumplestiltskin, Captain Hook, and Jimini Cricket have awesome back stories that are way unexpected but still hold true to the main plot!

Agreed!

I really enjoyed how some of the character alignments are changed also.

Out of that list, the only one I've seen/read is Shrek, but my favorites are some of Robin McKinley's books and Jim Hines's Stepsister Scheme series (the premise of the latter is basically that everyone believes the Disney versions of the stories, but the reality is the Brothers Grimm version; the main characters are Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty).
