Dany's RaaD Roundup

December Brings Tin Man

iwatchstuff continually unearths interesting tidbits and this is no exception. It seems that as a midseason replacement, scifi channel will be premiering a new show based on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

With this new iteration of a classic story, it looks like they have tried to make the story fit the generation with the shortest attention span, with quick cuts, striking visuals and turning the classic and well known themes from the original story on their heads, calling OZ the Outer Zone and having characters abbreviate it as The O-Z (like the show, The OC).

The show looks interesting (maybe even creepy, with Richard Dreyfuss as the Wizard… er the Mystic Man), Alan Cumming is always fun to watch and I loved Zooey Deschanel in Elf. Watch and see for yourself though.

Also, if you wanted to listen to the audiobook of the original story, you can get it through iTunes over here or you can just get it here.
