Why this has piques our interest
Based on the novel Pines by Blake Crouch this intriguing tale will be split into ten episodes. This format of less shows is really taking hold. Add to that the stellar cast including Matt Damon and Juliette Lewis and Fox may be on to a winner here.
The day and date release is also something to sing about and long may it continue.
