Tin Man Premieres on Sci Fi This Weekend

This weekend, we'll get our first look at Tin Man, Sci Fi's trippy new take on The Wizard of Oz. Starring Zooey Deschanel, Alan Cumming, Richard Dreyfuss, and Kathleen Robertson, the three-night miniseries centers the classic story in a land called the Outer Zone (or OZ).

Deschanel plays DG, this version's Dorothy, a Midwestern waitress who gets suddenly thrust into another dimension. Instead of a cowardly lion and a tin man, this version has characters like Glitch (Cumming), who's missing half his brain. But it still has a wicked witch: Azkadellia (Kathleen Robertson), who rules the OZ with an iron fist.

So far, reviews have been mixed — USA Today said this alterna-OZ was a bit too grim, while TV Guide appreciated its absurdity — but my TiVo's still set. I'll take my Deschanel anywhere I can find her, and I want to see what kind of special effects Sci Fi has cooked up. To watch the trailer and a clip from Sunday's first episode, just

I watched it last night. I'm on the fence. I want to know what happens but some of it is a little wacky.
