Having only caught the first episode on the Sci Fi channel, which i loved and made me gasping for more i pre-ordered this as soon as i knew it was coming out on DVD. So now having got the DVD I watched it ALL last night because i HAD TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!
I have got to say it is one of the best mini-series i've ever watched! From the acting to the sets and the special effects, the brilliantly wonderful characters, the gripping storyline, the battle between good and evil, the humour and sadness, and with the magic that is needed for this modern version of the Wizard of Oz. It's also really clever the way that things are linked to the original films, with little reminders all the way through such as OZ (Outer Zone), Tin Men (the name for the Emerald City police), the yellow brick road and loads more. The story build ups all the way through to a brilliant climax, full of twists and turns!!
I would recommend this to everyone, however old you may be, it's perfect for the whole family or a group of friends or whoever you are, you're guaranteed to enjoy this brilliant series, and at about 4 and a half hours long it is amazing value for money!! I absolutely loved it!!
Definitely worth the £12, order it up now and give yourself a few nights of top class sci-fi fantasy action, just watch out for those flying evil monkeys!!!
