News & Interviews for The Wilds: Season 1
There's something incredibly (and increasingly in each episode) watchable about this twisting, silly show that anchors its B-movie charms in truthful, heartfelt characters and performances.
Raise your glass to toast "The Wilds" for being a rare thing indeed on the TV landscape: a genre show about a diverse group of teenage girls that is relatable, relevant, and important.
What's so impressive about "The Wilds" is how creator Sarah Streicher and the deeply talented young cast members immerse us in this world so quickly and create an almost instant interest and empathy for these eight teenage girls.
If nothing else, as with Leah, it will pull you right out of any funk you're in.
What really made The Wilds shine is that they went a bit deeper than what you would expect.
The thrill of it comes not from running or subverting these clichés, however, but embracing them with full-throated glee.
Of the many peeking over Damon Lindelof's shoulder to copy from Lost's bible, only one has shown the competence to come close to the masterwork of Lost's early seasons. It just took 16 years, and it's about teenage girls.
A gender-flipped Lord of the Flies that takes female diversity to a whole new level of shock and awe with a deep and richly respectful study of both physical and mental trauma.
It is superbly well-directed with eye-catching cinematography that turns the deserted island into beautifully menacing space.
The girls who have to fend for themselves on this remote island are so well-defined that we're finding ourselves intrigued by how they'll change during their time together.
Over the course of ten hours The Wilds proves to be an engaging slice of Amazon entertainment which circumvents preconceptions and offers up food for thought.
Audience Reviews for The Wilds: Season 1
22h agoExcellent show! Very captivating
23h agoWhat a great series. The actresses were perfect. I could believe you if u said they shared similarities with their characters. The casting is just on point. Cant wait for second season.
1d agoreally steller acting from almost all the main cast elevates this otherwise average show to pretty good. the writing is decent, and the characters are well developed throughout the show. But don't expect a survival/action show based on lord of the flies. I am pretty sure none of the writers ever actually did any camping or wilderness activities, cus the survival aspect is not realistic at all. this is basically a Teen drama show focusing on a handful of characters showing their trials and tribulations. some of the conflicts seems very forced and badly written though , as if just to justify the next conflict resolution/character development scene.
3d agoBoring show with unlikeable characters not to mention no ending just another season.
4d agoGreat show, finished it in a few days. Wow beautiful location and kept surprising me. Next season soon please!!!
4d agoLove The Wilds! The cast is incredibly talented, the set makes you feel like you're living on the island, the music slaps. This show takes a hard look at modern feminism and what it means to be a women in modern America. Funny, soulful, heartbreaking, dramatic. 10/10. New favorite show.
5d agoGreat show! My wife and I binged watched it in a weekend.
6d agoAMAZING!!!! Everything I didn't know I needed in a tv show. It's nice to see others isolated in a non covid way. My fave character is Rachel, she really surprised me. All the actors have chops and are extremely great. I love the characters arcs and storyline of who these girls were before and the build up to who they might be after. ready for s2.
6d agoThe show has possibly the best character development I've ever seen on television, and the same can be said about the soundtrack. What also helps it is Sarah Pidgeon's incredible performance and commitment to her role. Yet, the show is still dragged down by some below average acting, and the fact that it never really goes anywhere.
Jan 17, 2021The name of the show definitely fits. This show is filled with twists and turns that wrap up in a tight humongous bow.
