Tin Man rusts
I'll pass this post to Eli, who actually watched Sci Fi's "Tin Man" without being paid:
"I'm now 3 hours into the show. While I agree with Warren that it's "clever, imaginitive and occassionally thrilling"...I know I've seen Zoe on something else... but if this is the best this gal can act I will intentionally go out of my way to avoid anything else she's in from here on out. She is a TERRIBLE actress! I've seen cardboard cut outs that act better than her! It got so bad last night I cringed... almost turned it off a few times.
"But I want to see where this goes now.I like every other actor/character... 'cept maybe for Raw. The guy playing Glitch is far and away the best of the bunch, but the gent playing "Tin Man" isn't bad. I've seen him a few things before too.
"Once you get past the crappy FX, and take it for the cheese that it is... it still remains clever and imaginative. I don't understand how any actor/actress can be picked for a role in this and not do their best to uphold the respect of the source material given it's legendary status.It's starting to - sadly - teeter towards all the other dreck (aside from BSG) that Sci-Fi puts out."
I'd add to the Mad Man's thoughts that everyone involved in this gives the overwhelming impression of not being committed to the material. Maybe the material isn't worthy of any kind of commitment, but the fact everyone's doing it half-assed comes through loud and clear. People collecting paychecks will never produce memorable art.
