Garden Wall is a laugh riot-and big-hearted to boot.

Starring the voice talents of Elijah Wood, Melanie Lynskey, and Christopher Lloyd, it's an artful fantasy for all ages.

Whimsical, adventurous tale has some scary moments, too.

This miniseries thus feels like an admirable experiment, but a bit of a tweener -- one that lacks the heft to sustain the five-night commitment.

2 half brothers navigate their way to get out of a forest, along the road they encountered interesting characters and dangerous situations but their enthusiasm and determination help them to survive the journey. It's dark and humorous. I enjoyed the subtlety and gorgeous animation. The songs were pretty bad though, which was the downfall.
