Wonderfalls: The Complete Viewer Collection

Posted on


Okay, in Wonderfalls, twentysomething narcissist Jaye (Caroline Dhavernas) chooses to live in a trailer park, work in a Niagara Falls gift shop, and engage in the world around her only when forced to by a higher power that communicates through animal-faced tchotchkes. Of course this quirkfest wasn’t going to last. But executive producers Bryan Fuller, Todd Holland, and Tim Minear knew that. Their eccentric tale see Jaye stalk an elusive overweight neighbor nicknamed ”the Fatsquatch” when she’s not avoiding intimacy with jilted bartender Eric (Tyron Leitso) — wraps itself up nicely in these 13 episodes (9 of which went unaired). There’s even time for a Rue McClanahan guest turn! EXTRAS A making-of featurette reveals the inspiration for Jaye’s muses (salt and pepper shakers in Holland’s kitchen), but it’s the deliriously detailed commentaries on six episodes that’ll have devotees bowing before Holland and Fuller. The creators not only belt out the theme song with Dhavernas and Katie Finneran (Jaye’s sister), they also announce which bit player had both nipples pierced. Now that’s closure.
