    NBC has now given a 10-episode straight-to-series order for “Emerald City,” a re-imagining of the classic Frank L. Baum books

    K9 police dog?, so a Doctor Who cross-over lol

    Emerald City opens with Dorothy, a 20-year-old woman desperate for clues to the identity of her biological mother, breaking into a sinister facility somewhere in the Midwest. When her mission is foiled by security, Dorothy steals a K9 police dog and speeds away… into the path of a tornado. Said twister transports her to a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy — in other words, the Land of Oz in a way never seen before, a realm where wicked witches don’t stay dead for long.

    Shame, but I'm more interested in how the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire progresses. Currently reading book four, which in my opinion, has to be the best.

    The series has been revived as NBC sticks with it 10 episode order, and in comes David Schulner, who replaces Josh Friedman as writer. executive producer and showrunner. Siberia‘s Matt Arnold will pen the scripts alongside David Schulner.

    Just watched the first episode and have to admit it was not as bad as I feared. Plenty of references to the original, but with a new twist. Not completely convinced yet, however will stick with it, for now.

    Liked the premiere episodes 1&2, :laugh:
    bad cops trying to kill Karen (why couldn't she use magic or magic only work in emerald city?) who seemed to study the weather to determine connection to emerald city. Were the cops from emerald city ? If karen & those cops from emerald city then Dorothy's foster parents ? Dorothy birth mark natural or done by Karen for her to acknowledge or for emerald city perhaps her parents or father or aunties to claim her ? 20 years ago what had happened that thrown karen away from emerald city ? :confused:

    the flying monkey drones & the drone projector :rotfl: they couldn't recognize the car falling out of the sky but behaved superstitiously; lol ... it's time they learned from Karen to travel out ... there are more worlds then emerald city :D


    the funeral dance & its sequence was well done :thumbsup:, though there is always some other means to deliver the goal ie, to capture East's magic. It also showed west closeness to east & her emotions when she sing-in-tongue to capture the other dancers' energies in combination with her to execute her magic needed to finally forced-released east's magic to store in her while the north looked on coldly if not east's magic likely be fallen into undesirable people rather then into west or north

    the happening with Mombi (she didn't seem powerful like east, likely an ordinary witch) was interesting & final discovering Tip actually was a girl :p was a surprised

    Episode two, another good one. It's seems to be adhering fairly closely to the original Oz characters from the books, which can't be bad.

    episode 3, why Dorothy didn't bother to investigate when she was in the other platform :rolleyes:
    what holds did the Wizard has over cardinal witches :cool:; Anna betrayal how truth ;) in fact the councilwomen all of them from Glinda :D do Anna or Elizabeth use magic to feedback to Glinda secretly :p

    doubtful west really hated magic, she should have given her magic to north :rotfl: also why would she stay so close to the Wizard ; the councilwomen & west could be ploy to spy on the Wizard & his army

    wonder how these characters - Jack & Lady Ev, Tip & west, Eammon & Lucas, Dorothy & Sylvia (would she accidentally turns Dorothy into stone :eek: :rotfl:) pan out :cool: in the ensuing episodes
