Beautifully realised fantasy
28 December 2018 | by robertemeraldSee all my reviews

With Game of Thrones dominating all things fantasy (well, it does around here!), it seems to me to be pretty brave for any production company to consider the genre when they are destined to be compared. Thankfully that challenge has been taken up with Emerald City. Full of eye-popping sets, wonderful props, astounding locations, brilliant design elements and mind blowing special effects, and combining with beautiful leads, great actors all, and an evocative soundscape, as well as a modern script and original story ideas, and the wait for the next season of Game is now not so onerous. I've watched three episodes so far, having bought the dvd with some trepidation, but I've easily been won over. Vincent D'Onofrio is especially good as the Wizard, in fact, his role and its execution are likely pivotal to this show's success. Don't think he totally steals the show though, as there are many brilliant characters. And it was also brave, I think, to take on a Wizard of Oz remake. Bravo!
