This has been a pretty interesting year for the creators of Lost. Damon Lindelof was involved in Cowboys & Aliens, which in some ways might be considered his own interpretation of what that series might have been. J.J. Abrams delivered Super 8, which again shared similar themes.
Now we have ABC's Once Upon a Time from Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, and it happens to feature a girl who had to give her special child up for adoption. Hey, I'm just sayin'...If you think this one's just about fairy tales, definitely pay attention to the Kitsis/Horowitz/Lost connection. It's more relevant than you might think. The pilot episode is a little slow to start off, but it definitely builds, which is interesting. I have to imagine, given this pattern, that the show will probably be pretty good overall. We'll see.
