    *Minor spoilers here, I suppose. Be wary.*

    I did. Wasn't too bad - interesting updates and revisioning on the whole Oz story.

    Some of the stuff caught me a little off guard, like the implied prostitution, drug use, and the way the witch kept saying "bitch", seemed like a little much for the material. Not that I'm against such things in a story, but ya know.

    I also didn't really understand or like how they sort of acknowledged that the original happened, and this was a different story, yet with nearly the same characters and settings as the original.

    All in all, I liked it. There was some serious cheese here and there, but it was tolerable and WAY better than the usual "crap of the week" that the Sci-fi films dept. usually puts out.

    I hate the Wizard of Oz. But my wife wants me to watch this show, thinks I'd like it. I do like twists on old tales, but I'm not sure I can bring myself to watch it.

    I saw a bit of the first part and liked what I saw. I have the whole thing on my DVR, it's just a matter of setting aside a few hours to just sit down and watch it.

    I personally didn't care for it. I only watched bits and pieces and it was really the bad acting that made me stop.

    I'm not a big fan of the original, that thing was just a cheese factory.

    You'd probably enjoy this. Much more realistic and NO SINGING!

    The one place I worked for had an inservice in back in August. Every employee was required to attend one of the 3 days they held it. To make it more "fun" the administration staff decided to use The Wizard of Oz as a theme for everything. It was horrible. I wanted to blow my fucking head off.

    I'm not a fan of original movie but I do enjoy the story. Tin Man was a great watch, just a bit confused about whether it took place in Oz's future or if it was a re-telling of the story.

    It was a sequel to Wizard...basicly the story of Dorothy's great-grand daughter returning to OZ 70+ years after she left...though basicly the same story.

    I enjoyed it quite a bit, and enjoyed seeing the updates and parallels between old characters and new characters.

    Haven't seen it yet, but my buddy watches it. He says it's pretty good. I never get to watch TV, though... :(

    I thought it was good. Alan Cummings was funny in it. I loved the Wizard of Oz. And I loved this.

    Hi, I'm new to posting here. I was originally gonna skip this, but as there was nothing else on to catch my eye on TV I broke down and watched it. I was fairly intrigued by it, as well as my brother. And for the life of me I couldn't remember what other roles that the actor who played D.G. was in until I realized that she was Trillian from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. There was one thing that kind of irked me though, and it was....









    *Spoiler Space*
















    *Seriously, don't read if you don't want to spoil it*





    Was that just after the Evil witch is defeated and Oz is free and the "royal family" is reunited while Glitch, the Tin Man, and Raw look on, the "O.Z." is saved, then BAM. The end. Doesn't even show Glitch getting his brain back, or Tin Man encountering his son again. Nothing. I was like, "Thats it..?"

    I like Zooey, she's one of the reasons I watched it. She needs a role that will let her really break out and be a star. The series was ok overall. The ending was a bit abrupt.

    I thought it was pretty good all in all.They messed up in a couple of spots.Like saying Dorathy was the original first one to cross over to OZ not true it was the Wizard or want a be wizard. The cheese was not too bad.I liked Cain he was a cool character.
