If you watch this simply because you love the old OZ, whether the book or the movie, you wont find what you expect when watching this one.
Sci-fi Channel's Tin Man is a work of art on its own, though it uses some of the original characters and locations, it is its very own unique tale, completely rewritten and turned into a fantasy adventure for the MODERN age.
It's not the old adventure, instead of just trying to get home, they have to try and save the O.Z.
Keeps you on the edge of your seat, waiting to see what happens next. Each new episode adds a new twist making you rethink your original ideas of OZ.
It's definitely worth watching if you like to see old stories retold in completely different ways. Not what you'd expect.
if the old Oz was Kansas, this version would definitely be WAY over the rainbow.
