I'm hopelessly in love with this mini-series. So much so that I had a hard time figuring out which scene I wanted to picspam. I went with this in the end because it rips my heart out every time. If you've never seen The 10th Kingdom, then I recommend checking it out...

Huntsman: You only get to watch.

Wolf: Time for the royal toast... Your Majesty

Announcer: The royal toast...

"Prince Wendell": To everlasting peace, and all the bones we can gnaw.

Evil Queen: Anyone for seconds?
... No?

Evil Queen: You certainly are persistent...

Virginia: Are you gonna kill me as well?

Evil Queen: I was going to let you go... I don't know why.

Virginia: You know why.

Evil Queen: Go. Leave Me. Get out while you can.

Virginia: No.

Evil Queen: You were nothing but an accident! You should have been killed at birth!

Virginia: How dare you. How dare you speak to me like that.

Evil Queen: Kill her now.

Kill her... or I'll do it myself.

Wolf: No!

Virginia: Stop. Mom.

Evil Queen: You've drawn... blood.

Virginia: I'm sorry.

Virginia: No! No! No, please don't die. Don't die! Just remember who you are.

Evil Queen (Christine): It's too late. Don't cry. My little girl... my little girl.
I gave away my soul...

Virginia: Please! Wait! ... Mommy!

"Prince Wendell": Oh, I think I've drunk too much champagne.

Some guy: What's happening? What's going on?

Virginia: Why aren't you all dead?

Virginia: I thought you poisoned everybody?

Wolf: Oh, no! Troll dust. I swapped the poison for a pinch of troll dust... just to make it look convincing. I'm sorry I had to trick you.

Wolf: Go for it Wendie! Go!

That oughta do the trick.

The real Prince Wendell: I'm back? I'm back!

It also has the most beautiful intro sequence:

oh my gosh! I LOVE the 10th kingdom! I watched it when it first came on and I still love it! I found it on dvd a few months ago and have been using it to get my friends hooked on it...

the end always gets to me! sooo sad!

I wish they had made the second one...

great picspam!

I've managed to spread the 10K love by lending out my copy of it to my friends as well. I can be pretty pushy when I fall head over heels for something, heh.

I wish they had too... so much *sigh*

Thank you ^_^

I absolutely adore the 10th kingdom! This is great, so few people know about it. I love how natural the coloring is.

No if only I could find what I've done with my copy...

I adore it too ♥ Such a shame that so little do know about it.

I'm glad you enjoyed :)

Oh, I love the 10th Kingdom. I haven't really found anyone else who even knows what it is!

It is far too underappreciated... more people need its magic in their life.

God, this is hands down one of my all time favorite movies. This scene kills me every time I watch the movie.

Great picspam! =)

The Tenth Kingdom is seriously one of the most amazing things ever to be put on television. Time to break out the DVD!

I love Wolf too... I love them all really, heh.

Though my favourite character was Christine... she may have been a seriously twisted bitch, but she was an interesting one =P

oh wow, this opening sequence looks amazing! Though I've never heard of the show - is it still on? How old it is?

It's no longer on... it was a mini-series that came out in 2000*. Sky One (maybe Sky Two) occasionally rerun it though.

I think the whole thing may be up on youtube...

*wow, it's kinda scary how long ago that was O.o

Is this something I should check out?

The into does look amazing...

What is it about? From the intro, it kinda looks like a fairy tale...

Well, if you truly do trust my taste as much as you say then definitely! :P I absolutely adore The 10th Kingdom

You would be right in thinking that. You can find some very well known fairy tales within the story.

As for what it is about... IMDB is my friend:

Two centuries after Snow White and Cinderella had their adventures, the Nine Kingdoms ready themselves for the coronation of Prince Wendel, Snow White's grandson, to the throne of the Fourth Kingdom. But an evil once-queen has freed herself from prison, and turns the prince into a golden retriever. Wendel, by means of a magic mirror, escapes into a hitherto-unknown Tenth Kingdom (modern day New York City) and meets Virginia and her father Tony. Pursued by trolls, cops, and a wolf in man's form, the three blunder back into the Nine Kingdoms and begin their adventures to restore Wendel to his human form and throne, and find the magic mirror that will take Tony and Virginia back home, all the while unknowing that Virginia already has a connection to the Nine Kingdoms that may prove deadly before we reach Happily Ever After.

Well, I do trust your taste, so I am gonna check it out!

It is unbelievably fun! Seriously. I think it's a must for any fantasy lovers.

Hope you enjoy =)

And, I am in the mood for some fantasy these days. I've been thinking about watching LotR the last few days, but never gotten around to do so. So, this is good!

Yay, someone on my flist who knows about this ^_^ She was a fantastic character... though I must admit I find it slightly worrying how often I'm drawn to the 'evil' characters :P

Nowhere near enough people appreciate the 10th Kingdom!
The bit where Virginia is sobbing over her mothers body always makes me cry :(
