But instead of answers, Ethan's investigation only turns up more questions. What's wrong with Wayward Pines? 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
Season one, OK at best. Season two, two episodes in and I'm done. Season one deviated from the books in ways that were not necessary and only took away from Blake Crouch's original vision. I know nothing of the process or motivation employed to move the books to television but without a doubt it's not what I was looking or hoping for. If you enjoyed the books, as I did, then I recommend caution if you're looking to enjoy parallel story lines. There are few at best. Since Blake Crouch is currently listed in the series writing credits (for 20 episodes as of this post) I can only assume that this is his intended direction for the TV adaptation of this book series. Simply put: It's not at all what I was hoping to watch. (Only as a side note, I highly recommend reading the three books from which that the television show is loosely based.)
