The fourth episode of “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” aired last night and if you’ve been following form the beginning then you probably agree the episode was cinematically forgettable. “Forget Me Not” was supposed to be a play on words and related to the power of love to remember what exactly we love about someone Alice and Cyrus and Will and Anastasia to be precise. However in execution, the show, which aired Thursdays, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m., was anything but memorable because of the poor sets and special effects…again.
Like the preceding episodes, the show was riddled with horrific sets and awful CGI. In scenes where Alice and the Knave were simply walking through Wonderland, the constant twisting and turning of the yellow-brick-like road they followed was dizzying. It gave them the appearance of seeming to float above the scene rather than actually be in it.
Then there was the Bandersnatch, a fearsome creature lifted from the pages of Lewis Carroll’s book. The creature that appeared last night looked like it might have been lifted from a Muppets episode.
Unless the special effects improve drastically improve, we can’t see this show lasting for more than half a season.
Tune in in 2 weeks when Once Upon A Time in Wonderland resumes on Nov. 7. Until then, keep checking back for updates, spoilers and news as it becomes available.
