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.

Wonderfalls deserves more!
31 December 2005 | by anabutttSee all my reviews

I would love to see someone pick up Wonderfalls again. I saw the four they showed in California, and now I've seen the series thanks to Netflix, but I want more! I loved the way the storyline appeared to be headed in an obvious direction, but right when I expected the foreseeable outcome, the whole story would jump into a zany twist that thrilled me and kept me entertained through all thirteen episodes. The show aired on FOX, and as I don't normally watch FOX (except for the Simpsons). I only heard about Wonderfalls through a freak channel surfing moment. I talked about the show with others, and all except one had never heard of it; and they weren't happy that after I got them turned on to the show, it immediately disappeared.

Please someone bring this cast back together and continue the show!
