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.

Top Critic

The episodes knit into a narrative, and the miniseries' sassy modern side mitigates its fairy-tale wistfulness.

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.
