DR STRANGE

Mar­vel’s sorcerer came to tele­vi­sion as part of the same deal that gave us The In­cred­i­ble Hulk. While that show’s grounded take made it a hit, this doomed pi­lot em­braces its comic book roots.

It’s sur­pris­ingly am­bi­tious, in fact, deal­ing out demons, oth­er­worldly di­men­sions, mys­ti­cal zaps and an As­tral Plane that’s as trip­pily ’70s as a Stu­dio 54 light show. But sad­dled with Peter Hooten’s bland, fresh-faced Strange, this ori­gin tale never quite earns the Eye of Ag­amotto.
