Wayward Pines Episode Ten-Final episode some notes and dialogue with review at the end. Was on in the UK on FOX Channel.

Wayward Pines

Episode Ten
“The Cycle”

Voice-over:
“The following programme contains scenes of strong violence..”

Previously..
Things got very hairy.
Oh yes.  An:
 “Yaaaarggh”.  Lovely.
That was how it was written.

I must say that the opening scenes with the credits may be my favourite ever opening in a series.

Now.
Credits:
(Special Guest star-Hope Davis)

Yes.  Now. Things are going down.

Written for television by the Duffer Brothers.  And Chad Hodge.
(he wrote the book-name of which is in my first review)

Amy wakes up.  I know the whole thing about Amy was made up.  She has a suspiciously corny bandage on her head.  I thought she was supposed to be dead.

The sinister nurse has transformed into a subversive and coolly dressed revolutionary.  with two long plaits.  A  revolutionary against her brother.  Well would-be.

Ah.  Sweet, pudding faced David Pilcher.  I thought he might do that.

Wayward Pines is spectacularly filmed I feel.  Like a French movie.

(melancholy Aria plays)

David Pilcher is chilling out.

So without giving too much away-general mayhem ensues and someone says:
“We have to make it to the ark!”
(a guy)

Blimey.
(rapid gunfire outside) Clock ticks.
Go Kate.

I think I mentioned that Theresa is so beautiful.  She belongs in a French movie.

Here comes husky voiced Ethan, with a gun.  And his golden star.

So this is nerve-wracking.

I could listen to Ethan saying OK all day.

Ethan (huskily) to Ben:
“”Look, you’re my son, I love you..”
“We’re gonna get through this..”
“I have to go”..
It’s all very dramatic.

Later.
A bit later..
David Pilcher, you didn’t..
Ooo.
That was horrible.

Ethan to Kate:
“(huskily)
“You ready?”

Soldier to woman guard:
“Wake her up”!
Oh no.
(growling and snarling) Lordy Lordy.
Get in the lift Ethan.
(thumping fades)
Better stop now.

No, not the lift shaft..
Ben:
“There’s a ladder!”
“I see the door!”
Dearie me.  There’s always a ladder.  In the lift shaft.  Isn’t there.

This is supremely suspenseful.
I officially can’t look.
(snarling and growling louder)
C’mon Ethan..

David Pilcher to Kate:
“The enlightenment is coming..”
“My ideas will live on..”

It’s the sinister nurse, in a spacesuit.
(you have to be there)

But Ethan, where is huskily intoning Ethan?
No..
Kate:
“What is all this?”
The sinister nurse:
“The rest of the population.”
“This is it this is all that’s left..”
“The last of humanity..”

I dunno.  I’m still not buying it.

(voices chatter)
Wayward Pines is gorgeous. Still.
(carousel music plays)

There is a statue of David Pilcher. (inscribed)
Visionary, Wayward Pines

Ben stumbles, rubs his head.  Then looks upwards.

Review

So I think that the experience of watching Wayward Pines, like the drama itself, was greater than the sum of its parts.  As in broken down, watching the drama episode by episode: it did have its wavering moments.  In plot.  In believability.

The watching of Wayward Pines requiring even more incredulity or would that be less: as we went along.  Well for me anyway.

Still, some of this wavering in tone,  pace and yes, plot: maybe the result of a blurring of genre. Subjectively felt by the viewer.

As in I had settled into Wayward Pines initially thinking the drama was one kind of genre. Then that genre jumps into another.  And so on.  Thing is those genres are undefined.  Non-specific.

I think I posited the hypothesis in one review recently that a particular drama is the genre.  Or summat like that.

Of course all this would be a lot easier if you just dispensed with the idea of genre all together. Which possibly is the point.  If there is one.

Wayward Pines, like Between I would suggest is a genre beyond.  An ungenre.  Or even an anti-genre.  Hey, there is no genre.  These series are making their own.  Genre.

So overall yes, Wayward Pines was greater an experience to watch as a whole than the parts it was made up of.  I don’t mean that those parts were bad, no. They were brilliant.  Atmospheric and evocative scenes.  Most beautifully filmed.

With the town and the countryside pictured both wonderful to look at as well as realistic.  However the town was so perfect along with the houses that they often resembled a stage setting..

I think these scenes are meant to waver visually and intellectually in our mind: between believable and not.  Just like with the trustworthiness of not of the characters.  To the viewer and to the characters involved.

Who exactly can Ethan Burke and his family trust in Wayward Pines?  Who can we?  Just like the characters have to take a leap of faith at some point as the plot progresses: so did we.

However I think that Wayward Pines held steady as a drama over this whole unusual story.  That almost hiccuped a few times in its progress along the way.

Yet these leaps or lateral bounds or hops of the developing story: made the storytelling original and unique.  I could say organic.  But I won’t.

Plus there was some absolutely excellent acting all round, I felt.  With the characters and their actions being filmed full up-close and personal a lot of the time.  In oft luridly lit and deeply painterly deliberately claustrophobic scenes.

Ethan Burke might not say much, but when he does, his husky intoning voice is somehow powerful and impressive.  Along with this silent screen presence too.   Since he conveys these same qualities not speaking at all.

Wayward Pines

Episodes Seven, Eight and Nine

Episode notes and dialogue only

***

Episode Seven.
“Betrayal”

Voice-over/ announcer:
“Warning, contains scenes some viewers might find disturbing”

Previously..
(it growls)

Ethan explains the latest happenings to/ with Theresa and explains the latest plot developments.

Theresa to Ethan:
“Four thousand twenty eight”
“What does it mean”
And Ethan finds something odd in the engine of his jeep”..

Now.
The sinister nurse is even more sinister now she is all smiley.  Plus she has hideously blood red purple lipstick.

Nb.  Can’t say too much.  too spoilery.
Theresa goes to check out Lot number: four hundred and eight.

The creepy Teacher:
“Procreation is a beautiful, blessed thing”

The creepy teacher to Kim:
It’s so fulfilling for a teacher when a project is fulfilled!”

Ethan Burke has this husky way of talking.

***

Episode Eight.
“The Friendliest Place On Earth”

Some notes and dialogue on first watching.

Previously..
Voice-over/ announcer:
“Hope you’re ready for this, there’s just these (episodes) to go!”

Ethan Burke to Theresa:
“This fake little town is all that’s left..”

Creepy teacher to Ethan:
“How’s that going by the way?”..

Now.
Ethan shouts for help.

Sinister nurse to Ethan:
“You know the children our our most precious resources”.

Ethan to sinister nurse:
“Is he a real Doctor?”
Are you a real nurse.  I wonder.

Sinister nurse to her brother Doctor Pilcher:
“We’ll have a  celebration, of life in Wayward Pines..”
“Remind people how blessed they are!”

Horrific flashback to Kate’s first period of time in the town.

Sinister nurse:
“Poor Katie, not feeling so well eh?”
“Don’t worry, we’ll get you all fixed up ..”

Then.
The ‘phone rings.
Reply: (on the phone)
“A Fellowship gathering, mandatory attendance”

Ethan Burke continues to intone huskily.

Here comes the really smiley teacher.
To Ben:
“I believe in clear laws, and severe punishments..”

Surveillance man Reggie to sinister Nurse:
“It’ just human nature to ask question..”
Her:
“Yes, Reggie”

Then two guys find a great big mother-fucking truck.  It has the Wayward Pines logo on the insignia.

Ethan and Theresa make a gruesome discovery.
Not gruesome as  in gory.  But horrific.

Flashback for Ethan.  Ethan to Theresa:
“I could never yell you..”

Theresa and the smiley teacher:
“Theresa “What would be helpful right now would be for you to stay very far away from my family”

Ethan to man:
“What kind of truck was it?”
Him:
“A thirty foot dump truck..”

Flashback to Kate and Doctor Jenkins.
Now Kate is wearing a cardigan and smiling blissfully.
Kate:
“Thank you, Doctor Jenkins..”
Dr. Jenkins:
“Thank you Kate..”

Now:
Kate and David Pilcher.
David Pilcher:
“Only a fanatic could be so callous..”
Kate:
“And who anointed you?”!

Interesting that a story about two guys trying to do something with a certain something in a truck is actually light relief.

Harold to Ethan Burke:
“You’re too late..”

David Pilcher to his team:
“Stay alert, stay vigilant, report anything suspicious”

Blimey.  Told you that was some big arse truck.
Man:
(he groans) (he laughs)
“We made it buddy!”
“We made it!”

Next week-(trailer)
Surely not?

Episode Nine
“A Reckoning”

Some notes and dialogue on first watching.
Announcer:
“The following programme contains scenes of strong violence..”

Previously..
Too much to mention.

Now.
Phones ring.  Phones ring.  Lights go on in all the houses in Wayward Pines.

This is the bit that I saw in the trailer last week.  And said surely not?
Ethan moves-to do which action we do not know.

However Ethan is getting hot and heavy with a massive shotgun: right now.

So here comes The Children of the Damned.  Or like they were from the film. They are seriously creepy.  They manage to out creep the sheriff’s receptionist. which is saying something.

I am enjoying seeing the actor from the Canadian series Intelligence.  As Franklin.

Ethan to Richard:
“You don’t have to believe me..”

Now even the sinister nurse is getting soppy.
So what’s up with the sinister nurse.

Guy at The Beer Garden:
(on reply to the phone)
“Beer Garden”..
He listens  and goes over top the other side of the bar.  He looks.  Down into the bottom of a glass.

Sinister nurse to Ben:
“She’s had an epidural haemorrhage!”
(What?!)
(no-she didn’t)

Meanwhile Theresa is on a mission.  Theresa is so beautiful.  She is like she is really in a French Series, which is just how beautifully filmed Wayward Pines is.

Smiley teacher to Ben:
“You are a leader now..”
“Not me, not your father,.”

Things are getting heavy.  And interesting at the same time.

(Tyres Screeching)

Teenage guy:
“Everybody, after me..”
“Work hard, be happy..”
“Enjoy your life in Wayward Pines..”
(they repeat it)
“Be happy, be happy..”
All:
“Enjoy your life in Wayward Pines”..
(High pitched tone rings out)
OMG.
Kate sobs.

Ethan:
“Drop em!”
“Down on the ground, now!”

Things just went from bad to even worse in Wayward Pines.  And Wayward Pines just jumped up, down or across some other notch.

Ethan and Kate.
Kate:
“If you really want to protect them, you need to stop protecting me!”

Arlene is the name of the Sheriff’s receptionist.

Theresa to Ethan:
“There’s something I have to show you..”
“I think Kate should see it too..”

I dunno.  I’m still not completely buying this.

Nb.  From earlier.
Could the sinister nurse be subversive?

Ethan has a stylish and rather symbolic somehow-Sheriff’s badge.  Of gold.  It is attached to his dark donkey jacket.

Ethan and Doctor Pilcher.
Ethan:
“I’ll need everybody here..”
Pilcher:
“That’s all I want, an end to the violence, a new beginning.!”..

Then Ethan gives a speech to the town folk.
The smiley or not so smiley teacher interrupts.
Theresa does something surprising.

Then the lights go off.

Oh dear.  David Pilcher is playing with the keyboard.  With an evil glint in his eyes.
A hand appears.
Yaaaaarggh!
It said that.

Jericho and some UK TV series now on Netflix-Gotham & The Code. Dag and change of Sky Arts 1/HD channel numbers on Virgin Media TV. Update on Residue. Plus New series: The Last Man On Earth-Dave Channel- number 128 on Virgin Media TV

Quick note to my readers

For Virgin Media TV users:

Dag and change in Channel numbers for Sky Arts 1/HD.
So those of you who were planning to watch Dag on Sky Arts 1/HD might have noticed that the channels on Virgin media have changed for Sky Arts 1.

Nb.
I lost Sky Arts 2 a little while back.  Dunno why.

Now, today I notice that these channels have moved:
Channel number 281 Sky Arts 1  is now number 122 on Virgin Media Tv.

Sky Arts 1 HD which was channel number 282 is now number 206 on Virgin Media TV.

***
Jordskott and Virgin Media TV.
I also wish to correct a previous note about channel numbers concerning the series Jordskott: (Sky channel number 123)  From my notes at the time I may have given the mistaken impression that Sky channel number 123 was available on Virgin TV-this was not the case.

Yes, I did have channel number 123, however this is not a Sky channel but a channel called Pick on Virgin Media TV.

***

Series on Netflix in the UK.

Jericho
So-being a bit un-enthralled generally with some new TV series at the moment I am trying out a series called Jericho on Netflix.  In short I would describe it as Between-lite.

However Jericho has Lennie James in it from The Walking Dead and British series such as The Line Of Duty plus the series Oz.  Jericho also has Skeete Ulrich and many other fine actors and actresses in it and is looking good if fairly unremarkable so far.  I am up to episode three now.

Description of Jericho.
Netflix-Two seasons
“Jake returns to his Kansas town to collect an inheritance, but a nuclear blast cuts off the outside world and makes him a reluctant leader amid chaos”

Episode One-“Pilot”
“In the wake of a nuclear attack, Jake Green returns to his home-town of Jericho, Kansas..after a mysterious five year absence”.

UK TV Series now on Netflix: (as of today, 5th August 2015)

Gotham
Nb.  The American series Gotham Series One is now on Netflix in the UK-hurray!
Write-ups here from Series one through to end of three.  Gotham was on Channel Five in the UK.

The Code.
An Australian series. The Code was on BBC Four in the UK.   I really liked The Code. Brilliant stuff. An ultimately deep and emotional story of two brothers and their fight for justice against shadowy dark government forces…

Plus spectacularly beautiful shots of Australian scenery and architecture.   Write-ups here on this blog.

The Code is Australian-noir.

***

Residue.
Nb.  Residue Season/Series one is only three episodes long.  As I discovered.

Update on the British Netflix series-Residue-(see recent write-up)
As I am sure most people have figured out by now-Residue Season One was in fact, as my research tells me:
“An extended Pilot”
There will be a Residue Season Two.  Great stuff.

Plus according to some comments I read, Residue is filmed in London and also possibly, Leeds, Which makes sense to me on considering some of the old and cavernous buildings we see.  The underground club for example..

I have gone back and given this series five stars. Hoping that will help to bring it back..

New Series:
The Last Man On Earth
Dave Channel number 128 on Virgin Media TV.

This is a “sit-com” or situational comedy in full.
To be aired on Monday, 10th August @9pm with a second episode @9:30pm.

Virgin Media TV. Preview:
“Episode One Series One:
“Phil Miler thinks he is the sole survivor of a deadly virus until he stumbles on a shrill female companion!”

Episode Two:
“Phil adjusts back to normality after meeting fellow survivor Carol.”

Write-ups here from Series one through to end of three.  Gotham was on Channel Five in the UK.

The Code.
An Australian series. The Code was on BBC Four in the UK.   I really liked The Code. Brilliant stuff. An ultimately deep and emotional story of two brothers and their fight for justice against shadowy dark government forces…

Plus spectacularly beautiful shots of Australian scenery and architecture.   Write-ups here on this blog.

The Code is Australian-noir.

Residue.
Nb.  Residue Season/Series one is only three episodes long.  As I discovered.

Update on the British Netflix series-Residue-(see recent write-up)
As I am sure most people have figured out by now-Residue Season One was in fact, as my research tells me:
“An extended Pilot”
There will be a Residue Season Two.  Great stuff.

Plus according to some comments I read, Residue is filmed in London and also possibly, Leeds, Which makes sense to me on considering some of the old and cavernous buildings we see.  The underground club for example..

I have gone back and given this series five stars. Hoping that will help to bring it back..
