Critical Condition: Emerald City

Emerald City (TVNZ 2, 8.40 Saturday) ➢ “You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who hasn’t seen The Wizard of Oz, read the source material by L. Frank Baum, or come across some retelling of Dorothy’s picaresque journey. And therein lies the core problem with Emerald City. In look and tone, it does not imitate the classic […]
