Coming This Winter to a Land Behind the Sun, Just a Step Beyond the Rain

I’m not someone who thinks that the past is inviolate, and that reinventions of popular works of fiction (literature, tv, or movies) is necessarily a bad thing. Sure, we’ve been subjected to some real garbage, especially in terms of old television being adapted for the big screen. I mean, did we really need Car 54 Where Are You?, or the African American version of The Honeymooners? But I’m a huge fan of the new version of Battlestar Galactica and the darker Bionic Woman is growing on me.

All of that said, I’m really looking forward to the miniseries Tin Man, coming in December to the SciFi Network. Starring Neal McDonough (Minority Report), Zooey Deschanel(Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), Alan Cumming (The Dinner Party), and Richard Dreyfuss (CE3K), the looks-like-a-pilot reimagines the familiar Wizard of Oz through a 2007 sensibility. It looks pretty cool, with a few nods to the source material (take a look at “DG”‘s waitress uniform), but a lot of new stuff as well.
