'Neverland' TV review: The long story of how Peter became Pan

Syfy's prequel to J.M. Barrie's 'Peter Pan' borrows heavily from Charles Dickens. There are some nice moments, but it should be much shorter.

It's become something of a holiday tradition — every couple of years, Syfy turns out a star-studded prequel to a beloved children's story — "Tin Man" in 2007, "Alice " in 2009. This time, it's J.M. Barrie's "Peter Pan" that goes through the mirror darkly in "Neverland," a cleverly conceived, at times visually lovely, but criminally long imagining of how Peter became Pan.
