I admit I missed at least one episode, but it's still full of "WTF?" moments.

And boy, D'Onofrio has really turned into a blob.

I like it a lot. This is not "The Wizard of Oz", "Oz the Great and Powerful" or "Wicked". I'm taken by the poppy addicted Witch of the West.

I have been enjoying it. Interesting twists on some of the characters.

I just caught up on the first 3 episodes. Seems well cast, well written and acted in striking locations. They don't seem to be skimping on quality.

Watched a part of Ep1 and gave up. Not my cuppa…

Watched the first episode based on this thread. Not too shabby. Looking forward to seeing where they go with the story.

Caught up last night (On Demand). Taking some interesting roads.

by episode 6 we have the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, looking forward to the Cowardly Lion

My family's really been enjoying it.

To me, It seems to recapture some of the Oz books' trappings. But I only read Oz when I was a kid, and don't remember many details beyond clockwork soldiers, pumpkin-headed sidekicks and such.

If you're a fan of the movie or musical though, don't expect this show to be anything like them at all.

Lugal--ever see "Return to Oz? Books 2 and 3, I believe. Includes some of the characters you mention. Plus an actual little girl,in the person of Fairuza Balk.

I wouldn't watch it due to the outright adoration I have for the original books and movie, and also from my priggish dislike of programs like these that seek to hitch a ride on the coattails of other works rather than create an original concept. It's like fan fiction is dominating the airwaves.

Fair points--do you feel the same about the MGM movie?
