What's the Gayest Oz of All?

By Out.com Editors

With 'Oz the Great and Powerful' on our minds, we look at fellow travelers on the well-trod path of the friends of Dorothy

TIN MAN (2007)
This miniseries shifts the Oz story to the present day, where the Tin Man (Neal McDonough) is a badged law enforcement agent and Zooey Deschanel’s DG is a descendant of Dorothy.

Does It Succeed?
While Deschanel and scarecrow Alan Cumming do their best, the attempts to make the story steampunk-chic are a bit much. Oz being called the O.Z. (“Outer Zone”)? That’s just douchey.

But How Gay Is It?
Slightly. It sort of has a midnight movie vibe, and the detail that DG and the sorceress are sisters pushes it toward What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? territory.
