This winter, while I was back in Canada, my sister introduced me to a mini series intitled Alice. Basically, it is about a young martial-arts instructor (Caterina Scorsone) witnesses a man's abduction and tries to intervene, which results in a trip through a magic mirror to a parallel universe in this modern retelling of Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass." Filmed in Vancouver, this show is wicked. It is the cleverest retelling of a classical story ever...well I think so.  There are so many perfect little nods to the original story that are really cool.

The Queen of Hearts (Kathy Bates) has taken over Wonderland and is kidnapping humans from the real world to suck them dry of all their emotions and sell it to the people of Wonderland as "tea."  While there, Alice meets Hatter who unwillingly helps her find her friend Jack, the man who's been kidnapped by the White Rabbit.

Basically, everyone needs to check this show out and guess what! It's available free to stream off the internet. Just go to

There are two episodes. Please enjoy!
