Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Pilot Preview


It’s the series premier I’ve been most looking forward to all season, and it’s happening Thursday at 8/7C!

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is the spin off from ABC’s Once Upon a Time. Unlike other spin offs, we aren’t losing any characters from the mother program. However, we have been to Wonderland a couple of times before.

This series will tell it’s own story not necessarily tied in to the original. But it will have the Once twist on the classic story. Alice is older and while on her trip to Wonderland, she meets a genie and falls in love. However, she witnesses the genie be killed before she returns to our world.


Or so she thinks.

When she returns home and insists all she saw was real, she is committed to an insane asylum. However, when the White Rabbit shows up again and informs her that her true love is still alive, our story begins as she heads back to Wonderland.

I still love Once Upon a Time, so I’m anxious to see their take on Wonderland and the characters we know and love there. Since so many people mix up Lewis Carroll’s two books, I’ll also be interested in seeing if they acknowledge that at all or mixed and match from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.


It will also be interesting to see how the ratings do against stiff competition including The Big Bang Theory (which I also watch).

Will you be tuning in tomorrow? I will be doing recaps of this show over at Carstairs Considers, so come join me there.
