Set in the spirit of L. Frank Baum's classic, the "Tin Man" follows the adventures of DG, a waitress and part-time student, as she travels through the mystical world of "The O. Z. (Outer Zone)", discovering her hidden past. This well-known story takes a twist in this SyFy adaptation as DG battles the sorceress Azkadellia along with the help of four friends; Glitch, a former adviser to the Queen whose brain has been removed; Raw, a psychic empath; and Wyatt Cain, a former police man (aka Tin-man) who has been imprisoned in an iron suit, forced to watch his family's destruction time and time again. Although parallels can be made to the original book this story takes its own path down the yellow brick road.Written by

This may only apply to the extended credits on the DVD release: the character name Dorothy Gale is misspelled "Dorthy". See more »
In the DVD edition, released March 11, 2008, the opening title card and credits are only shown on the first episode. Similarily, the first and second episodes do not contain end credits. As a result, the opening titles on the first episode and the end credits on the third episode have been extended and expanded to cover the entire series. See more »
If you watch this simply because you love the old OZ, whether the book or the movie, you wont find what you expect when watching this one.
Sci-fi Channel's Tin Man is a work of art on its own, though it uses some of the original characters and locations, it is its very own unique tale, completely rewritten and turned into a fantasy adventure for the MODERN age.
It's not the old adventure, instead of just trying to get home, they have to try and save the O.Z.
Keeps you on the edge of your seat, waiting to see what happens next. Each new episode adds a new twist making you rethink your original ideas of OZ.
It's definitely worth watching if you like to see old stories retold in completely different ways. Not what you'd expect.
if the old Oz was Kansas, this version would definitely be WAY over the rainbow.
