'Wayward Pines' Recap: Is There Life After Living Outside Wayward Pines?

Wayward Pines ' "Exit Strategy" isn't much of one, but that doesn't mean there isn't a fair amount of meat to keep this barbecue afloat. Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up on Shyamalan's dystopian Once-Upon-A-Time anytime soon, but this episode reminds me that the middle four episodes have a lot of ground to cover, just like during the first season. I just wish it was moving a little faster. Main characters Jason and Theo barely show their faces, an old character returns to add almost nothing to the plot, and Megan is anxious to steal an 11-year-old girl's virginity. Them are the yawners.   Read More... //

Wayward Pines Recap: Nurse Pam Is Back with a Terrible Secret

Wayward Pines: "Blood Harvest" Review

The second episode of Season 2 was a little anemic compared to the premiere, but I guess that's fitting since "Blood Harvest" was mainly focused on the town's lack of food. While the beginning and end were considerably more action-packed, the middle felt more in keeping with Season 1's lackadaisical pace, which offered a mix of both tedium and intrigue. The beginning was probably the most exciting part of this episode, as the First Gen military arrived at the crashed truck, where the abbies were literally piling up to get inside the wall. It definitely seems like the creatures are picking up some new tricks -- which makes sense, given their evolutionary advantage as hunters. Perhaps they're not as predictable as Pilcher thought.
