About a year ago there was this TV show called Wonderfalls, an odd sometimes quirky show set against the backdrop of Niagara Falls. The show was essentially about a twenty-something named Jaye, played by Caroline Dhavernas, an underachieving souvenir shop worker with a philosophy degree from Brown. One day inanimate object, mostly animals with faces, started talking to her. These "muses" gave her cryptic messages that she was forced to fallow and set into motion life changing events in the lives around her, mostly those in need of a cosmic push.
Wonderfalls was canceled after about four episodes on Fox, the network that kills good shows. I was hooked on this show from the get go, it was smart, different from most stuff out there and well written. I added it to my big list of interesting TV programs that got cancelled, not that I have a real list, I just remember these things. In the past few years, I think I've watched seven shows bite the dust for no reason whatsoever, mostly because of terrible timeslots and poor network attention, the reason Wonderfalls was cancelled.
But recently, through the efforts of a loyal fan base, Wonderfalls - The Complete Series is now available on DVD. The entire season, all thirteen episodes, nine of which were never aired in the US. Of course I bought it, watched it over the course of a week and fell in love with it all over again. Unfortunately, I'm now left with this void were the second season should be, but that's ok, at least I've seen the whole season, and it has a cohesive arch that makes sense as an ending of a series or a season. I just want more.
