Storyline

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 Anonymous

Trivia

Near the beginning of Part 2, DG affectionately calls her father, "Popsicle" (derived from the more common "pop" or "papa"). This is the same name by which Glinda the Good Witch addresses her father in the salutation of a letter home early in "Wicked," a Broadway musical popular at the time of Tin Man's production and also set in Land of Oz.

Goofs

Throughout most of the first episode, Glitch repeats himself constantly. This "glitch" is completely forgotten in the second and third episodes. See more »

Quotes

DG: I'm DG. This is...
Cain: I know, a head-case.
Glitch: I have a proper name... and when I remember it I will tell you.
DG: What's a head-case?
Cain: It's what the state does to re-educate criminals. Remove their brains, and keep them trapped inside their own heads. Ain't that right, convict?
Glitch: Whoa, I ain't no convict!
[hesitates]
Glitch: And just in case I am, it was a bogus charge, a frame job, I'm sure of it!

Refreshing!

I've only seen the first two-thirds of this, so this is in a sense an incomplete review--but what fun this is! Over the years, I've found myself growing less and less fond of the 1939 "Wizard of Oz". Perhaps it was the "20/20" interview with Yip Harburg a number of years ago in which he presented himself as the greatest thing in the history of music and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as the greatest song every written. Perhaps it's the relentlessly perky, folksy tone. Perhaps it just that I'm sick to death of Judy Garland--great voice, a complete wreck as a human being, same damned performance in every film she ever made. (Yeah, I know that someone will try to pull my gay card for that remark.) In any case--an O.Z. with a steampunk castle for the wicked sorceress, who by the way dresses like a dominatrix and has her winged monkey equivalents tattooed on her bust? A consistently dark tone, more Brothers Grimm than Louis B. Mayer? As other have noted, lots of clever parallels to other films as well as the original? I can't claim greatness for "Tin Man", but taken on its own terms it's a heck of a lot of knowing fun--without a single note of "Somewhere over the Rainbow". If your teeth hurt at the very thought of "The Wizard of Oz"--and whose don't?--you are going to like this.
