Storyline

Jaye Tyler is a loner living in Niagara Falls who, after graduating college, has fallen into a care-free comfortable rut living in a trailer park and working as a retail clerk in the Falls souvenir shop of Wonderfalls - that is until the souvenirs, and anything in the world with an anthropomorphic face, starts talking to her, insisting she do things in cryptic single sentence messages or there will be dire consequences (or at least lack of sleep). When followed, the resulting ping-pong effect appears to be the work of a divine plan, but soon Jaye becomes smitten with a local bartender and the figurines are telling her to do things that go against every fiber of her being. A reluctant savior, Jaye's hand is forced into the lives of others and befuddles her family in a fight that may not just cost her comfortable life and a budding romance - but her sanity.

Trivia

One of the above trivia blurbs states that the 4 episodes on disc 1 of the DVD are out of order, but they are actually in the order they were intended to be aired in (Wax Lion, Pink Flamingos, Karma Chameleon, and Wound-Up Penguin). Fox, like they do with a lot of their series (Firefly and X-Files to name a couple) aired those 4 episodes out of order and then cancelled the series (almost exactly like Firefly), but the DVD put them back in the correct order.

Quotes

Savage: I have to say, I never did expect those birds to mate. I'm still amazed.
Penelope: Does that mean I get my job back?
Savage: Are you kidding? You're still fired.
[he leaves]
Jaye: Hey. Cheer up. At least they're doing it. That's what you wanted, right?
Penelope: Yeah. I guess.
Jaye: What do you mean, "I guess"? I've never seen anyone work so hard to get someone else laid in my entire life. You're like the total mack daddy bird pimp.
Penelope: [confused] Thank you?
Jaye: See how happy they are?
Penelope: Uh-huh. And I know I should be too but I'm not sure I am.

Another great series gone before its time!
5 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

This series caught my imagination with the very first episode and I was hooked. It quickly moved to #1 on my TiVo and I became emotionally invested in the characters.

But FOX struck its evil axe again and killed another great series. Now what are we left with? Repeats of their latest reality brain drain "The Swan". Fantastic. JUST what I wanted.

I can only hope some other channel sees the potential of this show - if nothing else, just to see the rest of the season.

RIP Wonderfalls, Firefly, Dark Angel, John Doe ....
