a bank where the wild thyme blows

"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine: There sleeps Titania sometime of the night, Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight;" - "A Midsummer Night's Dream"

"Emerald City" TV series

LOVED-LOVED this show. Based not-at-all on the 1930's musical, and is a fresh new take on the original 1900's book series.
 Gorgeous set design, very artistic clothing, surreal-art-photo-esque arrangements of the cinematography, landscapes, buildings reminiscent of "The Cell" also with Vincent D'Onofrio.  NOT TO MENTION the absolute gorgeous men in the show, and also the very strong wonderful characters of the women in the show.  Very good writing with some real thinking going into the characters and plot.  Beautiful photography!  Look for  stunning shots of Ugandan-German actress Florence Kasumba/"Witch of the East", with an amazing red silk dress like tentacles flying around. Or Mido Hamada, another stunning Egyptian actor portraying the Lion, who needs his chance to find his courage.  Or Oliver Jackson-Cohen, (gorgeous!!) portraying a soldier with memory loss and/or PTSD, who needs his chance to recover his "brain".  And Dorothy, where exactly WILL home be for her?  And WHO is Dorothy?

I'm absolutely heartbroken that there is not more coming.
