Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, from the husband and father he was, until he must face the terrifying reality that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.Written by
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)." Later, in January 2015, Shyamalan acknowledged that the series takes a cue from 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 »
This a weird show from the outset but, even after reading the books, is never predictable.
Nurse Pam is the first resident Ethan meets upon waking in Wayward Pines hospital, after a car crash. Suffice to say she doesn't have a great bedside manner. We then meet a few other residents before Ethan meets the Sheriff. All of these people communicate different facts about Pines.
Suspend belief, don't ask too many questions and take it in and you will enjoy the ride.
My only disappointment it that it deviated greatly from the books. This doesn't spoil it but if it was closer to the books I feel it would have added to the eerie atmosphere
