Very Clever Series with Great Potential.
19 October 2013 | by zactacSee all my reviews

In the ever-growing (and confusing) world of "Once" we now take a prolonged trip to Wonderland in this stylish spin-off to the big hit "Once Upon a Time."

"Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" is the story of Alice, a young girl who travels to the wondrous world, where she meets exciting and even terrifying people. However, when she returns home she tells her father of her amazing adventures but he doesn't believe her. To prove her sanity she spends many years of her life searching for proof for her father. Then she meets a genie named Cyrus. The two of them go on new adventures and fall in love. However, the Red Queen tracks them down and apparently kills Cyrus in front of Alice. In her world she is about to go through a terrible procedure to forget about Cyrus and her adventures. Just in time, the Knave of Hearts along with the White Rabbit save her and tell her Cyrus is alive. Now the three of them go to Wonderland to save Cyrus and liberate Wonderland from the hold of the Red Queen and Jafar.

To make an original series and make it feel fresh is hard to do. To make a spin-off series and make it feel fresh is nearly impossible to do. However, this show does feel fresh and full of energy. The world introduced here is full of vibrant characters and a fantastic cast with much depth put into their roles.

While the entire cast is wonderful it is Sophie Lowe as Alice that makes this such a delightful show to watch. For so many years Alice has been a damsel in distress yet, the tables are turned in this enchanting series. Lowe brings much personality and depth to a role that could've very easily been stereotyped. Alice is clever, witty, kind, and even tough as nails. She might be interested in finding her true love but she isn't willing to wait around for him to save her. It is really refreshing to see.

Just like the parent series "Wonderland" has many twists and surprises around the corner to lead up to an interesting climax. With interesting characters, great chemistry between the cast, fun and intriguing villains, and a wonderful love story that does not feel forced "Wonderland" is a truly enchanting story that will hopefully live up to its promise.
