I’ve just finished watching Tin Man, a mini series made by SyFy. The series is split over 3 1 and half hour episodes, all of which drag and have quite a few irritations involved with them. I watched in on BluRay and struggled through each episodes waiting for them to finish. I didn’t manage a marathon of them that’s for sure. It’s a “re imagining” of the Wizard of Oz but did they really have the to call it the Outer Zone to call it the O.Z. That’s O-Zee. Really irritating.
The world it’s set was pretty bland, and story confusing as it kept trying to link back to the Wizard of Oz when it didn’t need to. The actually title character Tin Man is called a tin man because he is an ex cop, and that’s what they’re called in the O.Z… Instead of trying to link back I think they should have concentrated on their own story more exciting and made the world more imaginative instead of being held back by week links to the old story.
Some of the positives from it. I liked the small horror bits with the witch that added a bit of excitement, but they were too few and far between to forget the irritating parts and blandness of the show.
One last thing – even the series title annoyed me.
