Wayward Pines

wayward pines s1M. Night Shyamalan’s television project, Wayward Pines didn’t woo me past the first 20 minutes. Derivative is probably the word that most comes to mind watching the first episode. Shades of Twin Peaks, shades of American Horror Story, but instead of celebrating these series and building on them, Wayward Pines copies them in the most annoying way. Melissa Leo is a powerhouse actress who should not be wasted mimicking¬†Frances Conroy or Jessica Lange. The rest of the cast is wasted as well including Juliette Lewis, Toby Jones, Matt Dillon, and Carla Gugino. 2 out of 5. Next.
