What's bad about Wunderland? It's just the German word for "Wonderland." In Larry Niven's Known Space series, it's the name of the human colony world at Alpha Centauri.

Or are you reading it as a portmanteau of "Wonderland" and "under," since it's underneath LA? I suppose that might be the case, since it's unclear why a show set in LA would have a German title.
