Rich mystery, well-written script with terrible revelations and unexpected development, meticulous direction, suffocating atmosphere of despair and hopelessness, possible interpretations, gifted ensemble of actors with good chemistry between them.
Some actors left too early at the time we expected that would play more important role in developments. Additionally, we find some gaps in the plot. An insufficient development of a few characters can also be observed.
Surely when they announced the creation of this series from Fox and especially when notified the crew that will support and will peripoioyntan, expectations could not only be high. Fortunately the ' Pines ' Wayward managed to meet the expectations and undoubtedly is one of the best ranges of 2015, at least in the mystery/thriller/sci-fi series.
The series has the luck lies in the hands of M Night Shyamalan. (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable) who undertook the production of the episodes along with Chad Hodge while the pilot episode is directed entirely from the first. Based on the successful trilogy of books Wayward Pines (2012-2014) by Blake Crouch and an excellent circle up to now consists of 10 episodes with approximately forty-five minutes.
The series follows an American secret agent who goes to the provincial town in the State of Idaho Pines Wayward to locate two colleagues who had gone there earlier but their traces are lost. The agent during his research into the mysterious town will be confronted with shocking surprises that will change his life dramatically. It seems that for some reason fails not only to find answers to the original mission but also to leave the city or to communicate with the outside world. Possibly not ever gone from Wayward Pines alive …
Each episode takes its title from a phrase or Word that exists therein.
The "Wayward" Pines is a meticulous effort at many levels. The main cast with very Matt Dillon in the role of secret agent is of the strong cards in the series. We meet a variety of well-written characters to win immediately. The sadistic nurse (Melissa Leo), who pesters the agent when he wakes up in hospital, the city's bizarre weird scientist-psychiatrist (Toby Jones) who tries to approach him, the headstrong wife (Shannyn Sossamon) agent who refuses to give him up and the secretive city Sheriff (Terrence Howard) that instead of helping the US champion of makes life difficult by impeding his investigation is impossible not to cause your interest.
Beyond strong characters great success lies in inventive script. Generally the range can be divided into 3 parts. The first 4 episodes dominates the deep mystery that urges the Viewer to take in the delightful game Affairs and mantepsiwn about what happens. The monumental 5th episode (loose the best whole cycle) is the turning point and contains the great reversal that will shock everyone. Therein are given answers about the role of the city, the secrecy that prevails among residents and possibly answers for why the existence of certain "rules" excessive rigour as the public execution of inhabitants who go astray at the cohesion of the population through unruly actions (e.g. the attempt to escape from the city). Answers one and shocking that I never could have imagined …
The third part comprises the remaining episodes until the finale in which a series of events unfolds with plenty of action and plenty of terror. In this changing and our view for some characters that originally seemed a foul us. Can't say more but not to spoil the surprise for those who wish to watch the series. Apart from sporadic gaps in the script body and the incomplete development or use of certain characters, the "Wayward" Pines standing in high standards and is a very good proposal for a wide range of viewers.
