My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
To be fair, you’re not the ONLY one who liked Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I thought that it wasn’t the most amazing movie ever, but if you were going to do something more with that story, that wasn’t a bad way to go with it. And, of course, it’s much more closely tied to the Disney movie than the actual books, but that’s only to be expected.
Oh, great. Thank God there aren’t any actual Arab actors who might be able to take the role. First Gus Fring as the genie in the mirror, now this.
I don’t get how you manage to be so wrong about Arrow. The bar for Best Live-Action Superhero Show Ever is a pretty low one, but the margin by which Arrow clears it still manages to be impressive. The AV Club considered it good enough to give it solid A’s and B’s for the vast majority of the first season, which is better than the first seasons of most shows manage.
What Bob Mike said. Arrow manages to tell compelling television while being shallow, especially with Stephen Armell on the salmon ladder. Shirtless.
I was kinda off iffy on Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, but I really liked Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland unironically too, so I’m totally going to check it out.
I hate to correct you, good sir, but Summer Glau was in the other THINGS that I liked. Plural.
I like Arrow because my grandma likes Arrow and my grandma liking Arrow is funny as hell.

The first few seasons of Dexter were pretty good though.
