Wonderfalls: The Complete Series - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
IT’S one of the great lost TV shows, a quirky offbeat comedy that won a devoted following but was never given a fair crack of the whip by an impatient network. Fans protested, launched online campaigns, but to no avail, as Wonderfalls was cancelled.
But now, at long last, the cult US TV comedy series Wonderfalls finally gets its much-anticipated, long-awaited UK DVD release from Mediumrare Entertainment.
Wonderfalls – The Complete Series, containing all 13 episodes on three-discs, makes its Region 2 DVD debut on October 28, 2013.
From the producer of Angel and Firefly and the creator of Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies comes Wonderfalls.
The show centres on Jaye Tyler (Caroline Dhavernas, Hannibal), a recent University graduate, who holds a dead-end job as a sales clerk in a Niagara Falls gift shop. Jaye is the reluctant participant in conversations with various animal figurines – which direct her via oblique instructions to help people in trouble.
Jaye finds herself in many weird and wonderful situations that lead her to question her sanity. She seeks solace in her best friend, Mahandra, and becomes friends with local bartender Eric who tries to help answer the questions that plague her: Is the universe conspiring against her? Should she struggle with fate or surrender to destiny?
Whatever the answers Jaye is gradually discovering that the seemingly random events in her life are actually bringing joy to those around her and are all part of something much greater.
Extras include audio commentaries, Greeting from Wonderfalls documentary and a visual effects featurette.
