Looking to fill the gaps in your Fall TV schedule? Well, ABC’s got two brand new shows on the way that could be fantastic options, Once Upon A Time and Charlie’s Angels.

Were you really into Lost? Well, the hit show’s producers are back, bringing us something equally mind bending, a modern day-fairy tale mash-up called Once Upon A Time. The story focuses on Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), a 28-year-old who’s contacted by the 10-year-old son, Henry (Jared Gilmore), she once left behind. That’s when things get twisted; Henry tells her he thinks she’s really the missing child of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas). Emma was sent away to escape the curse of the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla), which put the fairytale world on lockdown, leaving it frozen in time. Sure enough, Emma doesn’t believe a word he says and returns him to his hometown, Storybrooke, but opts to hang around to make sure he’s okay. Soon enough, Emma gets a taste of the repercussions of the Evil Queen’s spell, finding fairytale characters alive, but with no knowledge of their original identities. Ultimately, Emma will have no choice but to embrace her roots in order to preserve both our world and theirs. Take a look at ABC’s sneak peek at the show below …

Now, how about revisiting an old friend? Charlie Townsend (Robert Wagner) is back and this time around has three brand new angels to keep an eye on. We’ve got Abby (Rachel Taylor), a top-notch thief, Kate (Annie Ilonzeh), a dirty Miami cop and Eve (Minka Kelly), a pretty lady with a knack for stealing cars. No, they don’t sound like model citizens, but Charlie is here to give them a second chance to fight for what’s right. Get a taste of what this brand new series has to offer in this ABC first look …

So, what’s the verdict? Of the two, I’m certainly leaning towards Once Upon A Time. It’s new, exciting and, like Lost, looks as though it’ll make you think. Charlie’s Angels, on the other hand, looks like more of the same. Yes, McG did the original series justice with his film in 2000, but the sequel, Full Throttle, practically made a joke of the concept and I just don’t know if the effect has completely washed away. What are you thinking? Will you catch just one or both?
