Matt Frewer v. Jim Carrey

An observation, after watching that Alice miniseries: for a moment, I thought the White Night character was Jim Carrey, because he seemed to be acting in a Jim Carrey-esque manner. But then I realized it was Matt Frewer. You know, Max Headroom. And for the first time ever, I realized that Jim Carrey's standard comic performance is based on Max Headroom. Further evidence: Carrey was considerably less wacky in his first TV appearance as a young animation exec in The Duck Factory.

A bonus observation from Alice: it had one CGI creature, the Jabberwock, as I mentioned previously. Since it chases Alice and the Hatter (played by Andrew-Lee Potts) thtough a forest, and since Andrew-Lee Potts also played Connor Temple, that whole scene looked an awful lot like Primeval, which made it one of the better moments in the movie.
