Trivia

At 2014 San Diego Comic Con, M. Night Shyamalan said, "I think when it's all said and done, it has nothing to do with Twin Peaks (1990)."

He said that Blake Crouch, the author of the book series, has also acknowledged his admiration for Twin Peaks (1990). See more »

A Great Start for A Promising Mystery
15 May 2015 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

Ethan Burke climbs a steep hillside through a forest at night, finally arriving at the summit. He turns back to view where he came from and sees a small town in a valley, shrouded in mist like an evil Brigadoon. He is trying to escape the town of Wayward Pines, but for some mysterious reason, he is unable.

A Secret Service agent, he was sent to Wayward Pines to locate two missing agents. In the pilot for this new series by Fox, he encounters more questions than answers. He has a difficult time determining exactly what happened to him. Supposedly, he was in a bad car accident. He is pretty banged up and maybe his injuries have affected his memory and his perceptions. By the end of the first episode, the viewer will have some answers, but they just set the table for an intriguing mystery that, like Brigadoon, apparently involves the dimension of time.

The first episode feels like an episode of "The Prisoner", the sixties classic in which a secret agent tries to escape from a strange village with peculiar rules and a unfathomable purpose. "Wayward Pines" seems to promise a similar journey for its viewers. It's a great start.
