Show Summary

Our story begins as many tales of imagination begin . . . . "Once Upon a Time" . . . . only this time it is, "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland". Yes, Wonderland a land filled with marvelous and fantastic places and characters, teeming with adventure and mystery, a land where a beautiful young girl once went . . . . but no one would believe her tale. In fact they tried to say she was a bit insane, troubled, lost in her imagination.

The time was Victorian England and the young and beautiful Alice (played by Sophie Lowe) was about to have her memories forcibly removed by her doctors. That strange land that existed of all places . . . . on the other side of the rabbit hole. A strange place, a place with an invisible cat, a White Rabbit (played by John Lithgow), talking playing cards, a hookah smoking caterpillar, and of course we cannot forget to mention the Red Queen (played by the very lovely Emma Rigby).

Alice knows however that her doctors are about to make her forget all about Wonderland. Alice is especially ready to forget the painful memories of Cyrus the genie (played by Peter Gadiot) who she gave her heart to and yet lost forever when she returned to the "real" world. Perhaps Alice is insane as her doctors would have her believe, perhaps Alice did imagine it all, yet down deep in her heart she knows it was real; but who will save poor Alice from losing all the memories she holds deep in her mind and in her heart?

The White Rabbit along with the Knave of Hearts (played by Michael Socha) arrive just in time to prevent Alice from losing her memories. Now it is time for Alice and her friends to return to Wonderland, so down the three of them tumble, yes down the rabbit hole they go and Alice can continue her marvelous tale of "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland".


    Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Series Finale Review: And They Lived... On, in Once Upon a Time, If They Possibly Could

    Wonderland's finale was as slapdash, needlessly complicated, and confounding as the rest of the season... in a great way.

    • And Now for Something Completely Different

      I love Books,Manga/Manhwa,TV Shows,Movies,Games, Everything Story an Information seeking person and "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" is well balanced spin-off of well known stories that bring new experience much like the Main Show. And despite all its flaws,ups and downs. In the end it felt satisfying and complete. Not every Show can say the same. It's not AAA Show but it left a positive memory in my mind.
    • One of my (nonsense) fairy tales done pretty well

      Most ep, missed Dad ep and midseason rabbit intro (13-14)
    • A Misadventure with 'Wonderland'

      A terribly misconceived series, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is a round peg in a square hole. Creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz try to turn Alice in Wonderland into a story of true love by mixing it with parts of Aladdin, and it just doesn't work; it rings false on every level. Sophie Lowe is horribly miscast as Alice, as she has no chemistry with her co-stars and never becomes an engaging character. Emma Rigby and Naveen Andrews however, are cast exceptionally well as the Red Queen and Jafar. In fact, Rigby steals the show and quickly becomes an incredibly compelling character with a tragic backstory. But even the best acting couldn't overcome the atrocious CGI sets, which couldn't look more fake if they'd been drawn with Magic Marker. While there are a few interesting episodes, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is a train wreck that bears little resemblance to Lewis Carroll's work.moreless
    • Great ending to a show :)

      I just loved this show, I have watched Alice, Cyrus, Will and Anastacia struggle week after week. I have suffered with them, hoped for them and was very pleased to have it end like this. The good guys win and the bad get their punishment. I will miss them. Great ending indeed :)

      And who does not want a happy ending :)

      I also want to applaude the writers, actors and others involved. They did a fantastic job making me love, watch and believe. Ofc i could pick on things, but i'm not going to. All in all this has been a great journeymoreless
    • Great show in its own right

      I think Wonderland would've been better received if it had been aired when OUAT was between seasons, the 2 shows don't really compliment each other, Wonderland is darker and more grown up than OUAT but it's an amazing show, such a pity it has been cancelled!

      Also Alice and Will make much more sense than Alice and Cyrus... And Emma Rigby is just lovely :-)
