Tin Man is a story set in the land of the great american fairy story - The Land of Oz written by Frank L Baum.
This story takes place a long after Dorothy's journey. It has many parallels with the earlier story, the companions in this are analogous to the originals.
The biggest news about this new story is that there is no singing, how very merciful for us all! Instead the three episodes concentrate on the narrative itself and what a narrative!
I'm trying not to give the whole story away, because this is so worth watching. Zooey Deschanel does a great job as the character thrust into the land of Oz. She plays her character with a wonderful mix of naivety and wide eyed wonder slowly changing as circumstance dictates to being a powerful major player in the world of Oz as the story unravells towards its climatic conclusion.
The effects and the monsters are really well done. They take their part in the story without becoming the whole reason for the story, which is how it should be.
Suitable for children aged 0 to infinity, split into three one and half hour episodes, this is a story to enjoy.
