Jaye Tyler is a loner living in Niagara Falls who, after graduating college, has fallen into a carefree comfortable rut living in a trailer park and working as a retail clerk in the Falls souvenir shop of Wonderfalls. Suddenly the souvenirs, and anything else with an anthropomorphic face, start talking to her, insisting in cryptic single-sentence messages that she do things--or there will be dire consequences, or at least lack of sleep. When she acts, the resulting ping-pong effect appears to be the work of a divine plan. Soon Jaye becomes smitten with a local bartender, but the figurines start telling her to do things that go against every fiber of her being. Jaye becomes a reluctant savior forced into the lives of others and leaving her overachiever family befuddled and her comfortable life--and her very sanity--at risk.
Jaye's car is a four-door 1964 Studebaker Lark Daytona. See more »
Although the series is set on the American side of the Falls, all of the shots of the falls show that the store Jay works in is on the Canadian side (the falls are to the right when facing the river, from America they would be on the left). See more »
So, here we have another impressive, interesting show, that's thankfully interesting and not some sort of godawful reality mess...but it's on Fox. You know Fox, right? That network renowned for giving amazing shows a chance, then never advertising them, airing them out of order or preempting them for some tripe like American Idle, changing their place int he schedule from week to week and finally cancelling them cuz "Gee Wally, these ratings aren't so good."
I can only conclude that there are two seperate entities at work over at Fox. One likes to take these new shows and give them a place to live and grow, to go beyond the normal, dare I say crap, we see on TV. And the other entity is the one who gets to control the show once it's signed on. It's the thing that says "You're on here, opposite Monday Night Football...no wait, at 3AM on Tuesdays...no wait, Fridays at 9!" This entity is of substandard intelligence and may very well be Rupert Murdoch. But I digress.
Wonderfalls is another rare hit for Fox, if only they take the time to promote it, give it a good timeslot and keep it around long enough for it to develop a fanbase. Failing that, brace yourself for more godawful and pointless reality TV. We shall see.
