The series Once Upon A Time has run out of it, but Josh Dallas goes on forever in syndication.

Another day at the office with the missus.

I'm famously indifferent to television; consequently, this story is more than two months late, so for the record: The series Once Upon A Time has come to an end, after 150-something episodes.

These factoids matters primarily because the show brought a measure of fame and recognition to a fellow New Albanian, all-around nice guy Josh Dallas, who served as grand marshal during the 2012 Harvest Homecoming parade.

As it turns out, last year's sixth season of Once Upon A Time was Dallas's finale, as most of the original cast members had six-year contracts. Let's hope they get a cut of the residuals from the many hours of "content" the series is destined to become in the years ahead.

My personal favorite Josh Dallas moment came in a movie I've never watched: Thor (2011). the actor prepared for the part of Fandral by researching Errol Flynn and watching Flynn's Hollywood swashbucklers.

Josh and his wife, series co-star Ginny Goodwin, are quality folks. I feel very fortunate to have met them a few years back, and wish them all the best in the future.

The magic is over for “Once Upon a Time.”

The ABC series, which is currently in its seventh season, will end its (fairy tale) storied run with the current season, Variety has learned.

Genuinely one of the kindest people I know and a tremendous role model for our community. He hasn't forgotten his roots and continues to give back. Stand up guy.

I think so too. May they live long and prosper.
