Thrilling mystery show!
16 May 2015 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

First episode set a lot of question but not a single one was answered. Its kinda feels like a Lost. The show will definitely keep me watching till the end.

On the one hand we have a FBI agent Ethan Burke(played by Matt Dillon) who had a car accident. He wakes up in mysterious town of Wayward Pines. People there seems to be helpful but they actually aren't. Strange people, strange town, and very few people to believe. Ethan's mission is to find two missing agents. One of them is his former lover Kate Huwson(played by Carla Gugino). In that mysterious town he will try to escape but some people is trying to make that impossible.

On the other hand we have Matt's wife and kid who find out that Matt had an accident and that he is missing. They have no messages from him although he tried to call them from Wayward.

So, what's happening in Wayward Pines? Who are those strange people? What will happen next? There is a lot of questions that needs to be answered in next episodes. Be prepared!
