These 'Once Upon a Time' Promo Photos Look Strangely Familiar...

Once Upon a Time is ABC's upcoming fantasy series about the dual realities/identities of the sad souls who live in Storybrooke, Maine (in our dimension), but who really live inside the land of fairy tales. Or maybe the town is the fairytale land in disguise? I'm not really sure. (I've seen the pilot. And I'm still not really sure.)

So I'm also not really sure why these new promo shots of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and the Evil Queen (Lana Parilla) feature the characters posing in massive birds' nests. Is it because Snow White is trapped and delicate and helpless, like a baby bird whose wings don't work? Or maybe we'll learn later that this is where the Evil Queen's army of flesh-eating crow-slaves lives? Probably, the show's creatives just thought the nest would be a dark and foreboding, yet dreamy and romantic setting in which to reintroduce us to their fresh takes on these iconic characters. Which it is.

But it's also an image that I, and many of you, have seen before, putting a slight damper on the dreaminess/romanticism of it all...
