    This show is perfect!!!! They need to make more
  • OUATIW- The Red Queen and Knave show

    When the title card for this week showed what I originally thought to be a giant dildo I thought we might finally see some passion between Alice and the Genie.


    I'm not sure if they're going for the sweet, chaste love that was the ideal of the Victorian era but the lack of chemistry between the two really brought the Red Queen front and center. Emma Rigby displayed great acting this week, her heartbreak when she realised that not one person in Wonderland would pay a ransom for her showed what I hoped to be the beginning of her redemption arc. Her accent altering in the situation was subtle but perfect and her sheer excitement and determination in searching for Will showed more chemistry than we've seen from the two lovebirds whom the story is based around.

    Cyrus the Genie was content to just be around his love but Alice was cranky and desperate to get away from Wonderland which I assume they wont be able to do until Jafar is defeated?moreless
  • OUATIW is back!

    So excited to have this show back - it was probably the highlight of the second half of 2013, and I'm hoping it continues to deliver in 2014 an beyond.

    Today we picked up straight after the genie swap and an old friend finds the new genie resulting in some interesting wishes while the Red Queen teams up with Chyrus and Alice to find the Knave.

    Was a very touch time getting the Queen out of troubel and there were some really interesting moments throughout.

    Not sure what to make of Jafar's little side quest but we will be able to judge that more clearly once we see a bit more.

    Overall, an interesting episode! Now we've got another reason to stay in Wonderland (of course) and I'm looking forward to where this goes next! Great to see OUATIW back!moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • The Knave: I think these are for you.
      Lizard: What are they?
      The Knave: Wishes. Mistress mine, my will is thine. Tell me your wishes three. Bollocks!

    • Jafar: Now you can watch me sit on the thrown you didn't believe I deserve.
      Old Prisoner: A throne is made when the man who sits upon it is worthy. Where you sit, Jafar, is nothing more than a large chair.

    • Jabberwocky Guard: You're a fool. The only thing waiting in that prison... is death.
      Jafar: Death and I have already met. Send him my regards.

    • Jabberwocky: You're already so afraid. And I haven't even opened the door yet.
      Jafar: What door?
      Jabberwocky: The one... inside your head. Everyone has a door like this where you keep all your most terrifying thoughts. Your greatest fears.
      Jafar: I've been around dark magic most of my life. You'll have no luck getting inside my head.
      Jabberwocky: I'm not worried about getting inside your head. Don't you see? I'm already in there.

    • Cyrus: What do I say to the woman who's traveled worlds, risked her life to save me? For now, and for all the years to come, whether we' e battling Mome Raths or fighting evil sorcerers... or just watching the clouds make their way across the sky, I will love you. And every moment will be a thrilling adventure for me because I'll be spending it with you. Alice... will you marry me?
      Alice: Yes. And yes, again and again, forever.

    • Red Queen: Either way, we need to find the Rabbit, get out of wonderland before Jafar finds us.
      The Knave: I'd prefer to take my chances with the homicidal maniac with the snake stick. Thank you, though.
