The main thing that I noticed right away is the presentation of the episodes: in the original DVD set, there where 3 discs, with the opening titles at the beginning of the first disc only, and the mini-series was presented as one, very long movie. In this new set, there are still three discs, but the story is presented in the way they were aired - as 5 separate parts. I personally would have liked the mini-series to be presented the same way as the older DVDs, but at least this new set allows the viewer to enjoy the opening titles with each episode (and those titles are amazing, I doubt anyone'd get sick of it).
The Special Features in the new set are fewer than the older set, but really, that won't matter much. The 20 minute making-of featurette is identical in both editions (it appears to have been a promo for the mini-series on NBC) and it's got some fun bloopers and such - It was the only special feature worth viewing on the old DVD set, so you really aren't missing out on anything here. The featurette is on the last disc instead of the first, but is not labeled at all.
The menu screens are fairly simple, containing the chapter selections (there are surprisingly few - about 6 chapters per 1.5 hour episode) and the 2 episodes.
The packaging is why I gave this item four stars. It is the most unusual DVD case I've seen.Read more ›
Virginia and her father Tony Lewis (Kimberly Williams and John Larroquette) live in a New York apartment. One day a dog enters Virginia's life. However, the dog is not just any ordinary dog, but Prince Wendell (Daniel Lapaine) changed into a dog by an evil Queen (Dianne Wiest). Soon trolls enter the picture along with magic, and the story is launched.
Virginia and Tony travel through a magic mirror into the land of the nine kingdoms (with New York being the 10th kingdom). It takes Virginia and Tony little time to realize that the world they have entered has very different rules from their own. Their goal is to find a mirror that will allow them to travel back to their own world; the quest for the mirror forms the heart of the story.
As Virginia and Tony seek for a way back, they are both are on a voyage of discovery about themselves, though Virginia has much more to learn about her life than Tony does about his. Through a series of vignettes they learn the history of the nine kingdoms, and learn there are mysteries related to that history. One of the most startling revelations is that Virginia and Tony are somehow involved in the nine kingdoms, but it's not until we get well into the movie that we understand the nature of their involvement.
The plot is generally coherent and I had little trouble keeping track of the parallel stories.Read more ›
