    You can see Neverland as sly philosophical discourse, or you can see it as fantastically produced adventure. Just make sure you see it.

    Neverland adds clever new twists to the origin story of Peter Pan and Captain Hook while remaining unpretentiously faithful to the adventurous spirit of the original.

    This Victorian-era prequel to Peter Pan works. [12 Dec 2011, p.48]

    Instead of soaring, Neverland barely hovers.

    By pulling the curtain back on the magic of Neverland, Willing has stripped all the fun from a marvelous classic.

    It makes for a mildly enjoyable story and it's probably best not to overthink things.

    As constructed, it amounts to a Peter Pan prequel lacquered up with a revisionist space-age paint job.

    A great two episode miniseries event from SyFy. Striking sets, wonderfully cast. If I had one complain is that it might have benefited from another two episodes or so... But it's still a series worth looking into. Expand
