    Tangenting off, I wonder if the show plays with narrative unreliability. The usual setup is that the audience knows Alice is right because we’ve seen it with her, but what if we didn’t? Or turn the screw further and have Alice begin to doubt in Wonderland, in reality, or especially in magic-boyfriend-whatshisface. Existential angst on a platter. There’s already plenty of room to play with the desire for acceptance and the pain of rejection and loneliness.
    In any case, I think the more interesting story lies in Magic Boyfriend’s death. (Without a new love interest on the horizon. Don’t even go there, ABC.)

    Oh, that’s got some potential as well, notleia, though harder to pull off onscreen than in print.
    While I’m glad to see this review, I must admit I’m down about the main show because the last episode ended with confirmation that one of the characters has a lesbian crush on another. Seriously….

    I agree completely Rebecca.
