Wundervoll, Merveilleux, Maravilloso, Meraviglioso!

So I finally got my dvd set of Wonderfalls in the mail today.

What is Wonderfalls, you ask? It's a hilarious TV show that was cancelled after 4 episodes.

So I'm sure you're thinking, "Cancelled after 4 episodes?? it must be terrible!"
No, it most certainly is not.
The overall show is about a girl named Jaye who graduated from Brown University and got a degree in philosophy. She decided to ignore her degree and move to Niagra falls and work in the tourist filled gift shop called Wonderfalls.
She suddenly feels like she's going crazy because items in the gift shop start talking to her and telling her things to do, she tries to ignore them, but finds that everything seems to work out for the better when she doesn't.

It's almost like a big boiling pot of Joan of Arc, dry humor, a touch of running jokes, and a dash of the supernatural.
It was created by Bryan Fuller, who also created Dead like Me and Pushing Daisies, and Todd Holland, the exec. producer of Malcolm in the Middle.

If you enjoyed these shows you will most probably enjoy Wonderfalls.

And if you want to check it out for yourself, here's the pilot. This one is the unaired pilot, the main difference between the aired pilot and this is that there's a different actor that plays Jaye's brother. The overall plot is the same.

I hope you enjoy it.

Happy watching.
