The Wilds Review


IMDB Summary: A group of teens must survive after a crash leaves them stranded. There's just one twist to this thrilling drama - these girls did not end up on this island by accident.

Spoiler Alert - My Thoughts: Okay so think Castaway meets The Maze Runner. This is basically a psychological experiment being run on a group of girls and we see the foolishness that happens. Like in Maze Runner there is an undercover agent and within this group there are actually two. 

The girls bond through various trials and we get to actually watch the puppet masters attempt to control everything. Obviously to make the show interesting, the puppet masters fail spectacularly throughout which is fun to watch. 

I started watching the show because I saw a friend post that the show was great and that there was a big twist. I sat and watched the show and to me there were no surprises or twists but it was an enjoyable show. When we see the girls after being rescued from the island, I immediately thought of the underground tunnels of Ancora Psychiatric Hospital. It was obvious to me that the girls were not actually rescued at this point and were still being experimented on so it came as no surprise to me as it was revealed.

 Another twist was the reveal of the second agent as the first was outted immediately. I picked that one out pretty easily. It is like when you read any mystery novel, any person that they point a finger at you must immediately rule out. The pulled a Usual Suspects moment and choose the person that appeared the weakest but in reality was watching and taking notes. I picked Nora as the other agent because one I was rooting for her just because she was Black and two because she made the most sense out of the ones left. 

The last big twist I believe is at the end when it is revealed that there is another island filled with just boys. I think this is no surprise because c'mon if you have any scientific background you know that you cannot just run one experiment with only 9 girls that is just a case study and cannot be extrapolated to the population. The goal of this study is to make a change and in order to make sure your data is not being influenced by unknown variables you have to run multiples just like in The Maze Runner. 

The show was overall fun and I look forward to seeing how it all plays out as the girls are aware that they are an experiment and to to see the aftermath of the shark attack. 

What did you think of the show?
