So M. Night Shyamalan. He's back, with back-to-back success with his new show Wayward Pines and new film The Visit! Is this his comeback?
There will be no spoilers in this post.
It came out quite a while ago now, but I had wanted to talk about it a little bit. While visiting my sister over the summer, she and her husband were raving to us about this show, and how unpredictable it was. They loved it.
It's M. Night Shyamalan's first foray into TV I think. He produced it. Some people were weary since the films he wrote and directed hadn't been doing well for a while now, and the films he only produced were also just ok. So here he is producing his first TV show. This is similar to the Warchowski siblings. They too produced their first TV show 'Sense8' for Netflix. People speculated that episodic television would be a better medium for the siblings. That their sensibilities would translate better as television shows than as films. I think there were mixed reviews for 'Sense8,' but over-all I think people liked it and I know of some who love it. Perhaps what was speculated is true. I have yet to see enough of 'Sense8' to really determine that for myself, BUT, I have seen all of 'Wayward Pines,' and liked it! Though it's not quite as unpredictable as my sister and brother-in-law made it out to be. I didn't love it, but I did like it and would probably see a second season, which I hear might happen. It's a little like what you'd expect from M. Night's ideas, and a little bit of the show 'Lost.'
