i have never heard of this is it good?
Well, my opinion may be biased, but I would say it's rather enjoyable.
The 10th Kingdom is the story about a young woman, Virginia, and her father, Tony, who get pulled into another realm--a realm of fairy tales, made of 9 kingdoms.
Prince Wendell (grandson of Snow White), who is about to be crowned king of the 4th kingdom, gets turned into a dog by the Evil Queen, is pursued by trolls, escapes into Manhattan, NY, and gets Virginia and Tony caught up in everything when the trolls follow Wendell there. Wendell, Virginia, and Tony, being chased by the trolls, escape back into the fairy tale realm, and the rest of the miniseries is spent with Virginia and Tony trying to get back home.
If that confusing summary didn't put you off, I will say this--it IS a miniseries, so it run about 10 hours or so, but it's totally worth it. It's quite a charming story, and the characters are great. There's a lot of humor, and a lot of seriousness too. If you like a bit of cheesiness here and there, then you'll definitely enjoy this adventure. I think one of the more fun parts is seeing fairy tale elements and characters put in a slightly more realistic setting as they interact with each other. Like, you have Kissing Town, where Snow White was awoken by the prince, but now it's kinda turned into a tourist-y place. People gamble with cards...playing Snap. There's golden fingers, gypsies, magic mirrors, magic shoes, singing trolls...pretty much anything you'd want out of a fairy tale!
