Alice – It's been hard to escape Syfy's aggressive marketing campaign for Alice, the cable network's curious sequel to Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I'm sure some of you have already been propositioned by a twiggy man wearing a creepy rabbit mask asking you to "follow" him 'round the Internet (big spoiler: the journey ends here). Some city dwellers might have even met Mr. Creepy Rabbit Head in person. Sadly, the actual miniseries isn't as kooky or as playful as the advertising push.
Sure, tonight's two-hour conclusion offers enough of the strange stuff – mechanical flamingos, magical rings, Matt Frewer – but it also offers a dull plot, some muddled storytelling and a sappy, predictable ending. The reason to tune in? Primeval's Andrew-Lee Potts is awesome as good guy "Hatter." (9 p.m. ET on Syfy, with part one repeating at 7 p.m.)
