Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Season 1 (2013-2014)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is attractive to the eye and pleasantly narrated, but it loses some luster due to a jumbled story and Wonderland's unlikable inhabitants.

Critic Reviews for Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (15)

Even moving nights, though, won't solve the problems of the thin story and artificial scenery.

Full Review… | October 20, 2013

TV spin-off takes dark fantasy drama to another dimension.

Full Review… | October 15, 2013
Common Sense Media

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is a disappointment, focusing more on the chintzy tableau of the candy-colored Wonderland than on giving its actors anything interesting to do there.

Full Review… | October 14, 2013
Time Out Chicago

Wonderland is kind of dark, kind of confusing and only moderately entertaining.

Full Review… | October 14, 2013
Salt Lake Tribune

With the mothership's leads on a similar quest for a missing boy, Wonderland seems like an exercise in magical redundancy. This looking glass is cracked.

Full Review… | October 14, 2013
Boston Herald

The main storyline isn't strong enough and the incongruous peripheral elements just confuse rather than engage the viewer.

Audience Reviews for Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Season 1

½

A terribly misconceived series, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is a round peg in a square hole. Creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz try to turn Alice in Wonderland into a story of true love by mixing it with parts of Aladdin, and it just doesn't work; it rings false on every level. Sophie Lowe is horribly miscast as Alice, as she has no chemistry with her co-stars and never becomes an engaging character. Emma Rigby and Naveen Andrews however, are cast exceptionally well as the Red Queen and Jafar. In fact, Rigby steals the show and quickly becomes an incredibly compelling character with a tragic backstory. But even the best acting couldn't overcome the atrocious CGI sets, which couldn't look more fake if they'd been drawn with Magic Marker. While there are a few interesting episodes, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is a train wreck that bears little resemblance to Lewis Carroll's work.
