'The Wilds'


In a word? Brilliant. I loved it. I had it on my list for a few months because I was afraid it was going to be some teen drama crap, but it's not that at all. It's an adult story with some teenage characters in it, and it so worth watching. For the men, too. My man kind of hmm'd and hawed through the first two episodes but by the third he was hooked. We've been talking about it nonstop and wondering how we'll survive the wait to 2022 for the next part!

My only complaint... TEN, EPISODES? Gimme a break! That's less than half a season. This is partly why we ditched Netflix, TV shows have become so insanely lazy in this regard. Find something good but you only get a tiny bit of it. This last happened to us with The OA, fantastic show... But the three-year wait for the second half soured us. We gave up (we'd actually quit the 'Flix before it hit) and even if I could watch part 2 now, I wouldn't. It's been so long I'd have to rewatch the first season and some of it was super painful (sad, angering) and I'm not doing that again.

Anyway, back to The Wilds... Just really impressed. Excellent story, fantastic acting, rich characters. It's got it all.

Let me know if you check it out because I'd love to hear what other people thought of it! :)
