TIN MAN Sneak Peek & Giveaway

November 30, 2007 by  

“Toto, I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore.” Ain’t that the truth! Starting this weekend get a glimpse of the Wizard of Oz SCI FI style when the Sci Fi Channel presents TIN MAN. A slightly different take on Dorothy’s adventures in Oz and the friends she meets along the way.

I haven’t seen TIN MAN yet but I’ve heard great things from friends who have and I can’t wait to check it out this weekend. The three night tale, TIN MAN, begins this Sunday (12/2) and concludes on Tuesday – each episode beginning at 9pm.

Here’s a little sneak peek at TIN MAN (and for more information, continue reading after the jump).

TIN MAN Board Game & Comic Giveaway
In honor of this epic tale, the SCI FI Channel is giving away a TIN MAN board game perfect for game night (or perhaps a nice holiday present) as well as an official TIN MAN comic.

Entering is easy, just leave a comment telling me one movie/tv show that each of the five leads of TIN MAN has been in before. The leads first names are Zooey, Kathleen, Alan, Richard, and Neal. (No cheating, this one isn’t difficult for you to figure out on your own).

TIN MAN | 12/2 – 12/4 @ 9pm on SCI FI
A sometimes psychedelic, often twisted and always outrageous take on the book, SCI FI’s Tin Man is the epic tale of DG (Deschanel), a young woman plucked from her humdrum life and thrust into The Outer Zone (the O.Z.) – a fantastical realm rife with wonder, but oppressed by dark magic. In the adventure of a lifetime, DG discovers her true identity, battles evil winged-monkey-bats, and attempts to fulfill her destiny. Her perilous journey begins on the fabled Old Road that leads to a wizard known as the Mystic Man (Dreyfuss). Along the way, she is joined by a decidedly strange trio of companions – “Glitch,” (Cumming) an odd man missing half his brain; “Raw,” (Trujillo) a quietly powerful wolverine-like creature longing for inner courage, and “Cain,” (McDonough) a heroic former policeman (known in the O.Z. as Tin Men, for their tin badges) seeking vengeance for his scarred heart. Ultimately, DG’s destiny leads her to an emotional and terrifying showdown with the scintillatingly wicked sorceress Azkadellia (Robertson), whose ties to DG are closer than anyone could have imagined. DG’s life, as well as the very future of the O.Z., hangs in the balance.
