Yesterday, I was sitting in a crowded coffee shop at the university. My favorite barista is running a great business – she’s constantly chatting, managing the orders and collecting money for coffee. It’s just the type of person I admire, and I think she does an amazing job because of her positive attitude and willingness to learn new skills. The coffee shop, like so many others, is in a prime location for students, faculty and staff who need a quick caffeine fix.Was a bit confusing at first as to how it would tie in to each fairy tale but give it time. By episode 3 I was hooked and I absolutely love the story telling. Great show so far.

Story

Tell Me a Story is an American psychological thriller television anthology series created by Kevin Williamson for CBS All Access. Based on the Spanish television series Cuéntame un cuento, it depicts iconic fairy tales reimagined as modern-day thrillers. Each season features a mostly different cast ensemble, with Danielle Campbell and Paul Wesley appearing in both seasons of the series.Tell Me a Story takes "the world's most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller.

Set in modern-day New York City, the first season of this serialized drama interweaves The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge, and murder.The series has been met with a mixed response from critics upon its premiere. Based on 15 reviews, the first season holds a 60% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an average rating of 5.42 out of 10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Despite an enticing cast and promising premise, Tell Me a Story's overly plotted, grim take on Grimm's Fairy Tales fails to enchant."

In an outright negative assessment, RogerEbert.com's Brian Tallerico criticized the series saying, "There are talented TV veterans in Tell Me a Story, likely lured by Williamson's pedigree, but even they fail to give what could reasonably be called good performances. The pacing, the dialogue, the (complete lack of) visual language, the world building—it's impossible to point to a single element that works."
