Set in the spirit of L. Frank Baum's classic, the "Tin Man" follows the adventures of DG, a waitress and part-time student, as she travels through the mystical world of "The O. Z. (Outer Zone)", discovering her hidden past. This well-known story takes a twist in this SyFy adaptation as DG battles the sorceress Azkadellia along with the help of four friends; Glitch, a former adviser to the Queen whose brain has been removed; Raw, a psychic empath; and Wyatt Cain, a former police man (aka Tin-man) who has been imprisoned in an iron suit, forced to watch his family's destruction time and time again. Although parallels can be made to the original book this story takes its own path down the yellow brick road. Written by
During the dream sequence, DG is asked if she's been having dreams again, and she says, "Yeah, in Technicolor." The Technicolor process made the intense colors of the original movie possible. See more »
When DG is in the hut with Ahamo and is examining the compass, she is holding it in her left hand. In the long shot that immediately follows, she is holding it with both hands. See more »
That's the O.Z. I remember. I'm so glad to be home.

This may only apply to the extended credits on the DVD release: the character name Dorothy Gale is misspelled "Dorthy". See more »
This show was fairly imaginative. Everything seemed ripe for a great story but it never became very engaging. The characters and some of the visuals were imaginatively conceived, but I never felt compelled to keep watching.
Basically, this a loosely re-conceived version of the Wizard of Oz. It's modern day and each main character different, yet has something in common with their original Oz counterpart. It's sufficiently different that it's hard to predict what's going to happen next.
The characters are visually appealing to watch, but dialog is a bit lacking and the story even more so. In the three parts of the movie, only twice did it pick up in interest level - near the end of part 1 and near the end of part 3. The rest of the show was just kind of flat.
I can't really recommend watching the show - but some of the previews and snapshots that focus on the visuals may make it hard to resist.
