Wayward Pines started out a bit slow and generic however, it quickly became intriguing and interesting as the story unfolds through the character driven plot.
The cast did a fantastic job. M Night should've made this book into a movie but I'm looking forward to the rest of the episodes and see where it goes. My problem with the show is its "digital video look" it makes everything appear fake like a primetime soap opera and it takes me out of the story. I had the same problem with Sleepy Hollow, Bones, etc. Since it's a 10part mini series they should've shot it on film. Anyway, this show has a feel of David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcok, and the Truman Show.
These are the kinds of stories that made M. Night Shyamalan's career (6th Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village) until he dozed off into BS territory (The Happening, The Last Airbender, After Earth).
