Or at least shouldn't be any negative critiques of this wonderful new TV show. WayWard Pines is incredible, the cinematography and locations give the series a unique, almost dream-like chilling quality. The plot, where does one begin? Such a mysterious vibe which could literally take the viewer anywhere. 'Pines' has that classic British television series,'The Prisoner' feel with a secondary element reminiscent of Lynch's Twin Peaks. Does the Wayward Pines formula copy The Prisoner or Twin Peaks? No; however, while 'Pines does borrow a tiny amount from each the recipe was dreamt up in development heaven. Wayward Pines is without a doubt its own series and cements that originality with a competence in direction and production rarely seen on American television these days. Pushed to define the show I would suggest a mix consisting of a Dark City/The Prisoner (British version) atmosphere with a touch of Twin Peaks, a pinch of Lost, Dark Skies (much loved and missed) and Surveillance.
I have a strong feeling 'Pines' will be THE show of 2015
