Wonderfalls was one of many victims of the FOX Network’s impatience in the early 2000s, cancelled after just one season. Kevin, a fan of the show for many years, discusses with Jerome, a first time viewer, the disadvantages the show had going into it and how it went into survival mode after just one episode, as well as how it is very much a product of its time.
