Critic Reviews for Emerald City: Season 1

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (21)

I DO know that Emerald City is the direct result of some evil thing hooking the cheerful, technicolor classic The Wizard of Oz up to the death machine from The Princess Bride and sucking every ounce of life out of it.

The plotting is goofy, the tone is relentlessly dark and the pacing is excruciatingly slow. Worst, the characters are hard to care about.

The overall result is a first season that has its flaws, but features enough delightful weirdness to intrigue those willing to give it a chance... Emerald City is without a doubt an epic leap into the unknown. Sometimes, it soars.

It's just as muddled as Once often is, and too ridiculous to be taken seriously as an epic as Thrones, which is not surprising, given the show's long stay in development purgatory.

It all looks good, but Arjona never gains real traction as Dorothy and some of the side stories become distractions. Still, Emerald City is an ambitious, if derivative, project for broadcast television.

Emerald City's horror tends more toward the familiar-stolen children, addiction, suicide-but it's a fascinating world to enter, if not always a totally absorbing one.
