Hey Sprinklerz! Today's another "Favorites" episode of Sprinklez where I talk about two of my all-time-faves: Fox's WAYWARD PINES (Season 1 & 2 are on Hulu) and Disney's GRAVITY FALLS (Season 1 & 2 are on Hulu).
WAYWARD PINES is a fantastic and mysterious thriller set in the too-perfect town of Wayward Pines nestled in the forest of the American North West. Executive producer M. Night Shyamalan brings us a fast paced, plot twisting story pulled from the pages of the trilogy of books by author Blake Crouch entitled; Pines (2012); Wayward (2013); and The Last Town(2014). I rave on about the amazing cast and despite watching countless YouTube videos on the matter, I still totally mess up Siobhan Fallon Hogan's name (It's pronounced Shavon, who knew? Sadly, not me.) She is amazingly funny and endearing in this show.
Then I almost burst with excitement about Disney's GRAVITY FALLS which is cartoon-cuteness overload. Set again in the mysterious northwest it features a set of twins, Mabel and Dipper Pines as they arrive at their Grunkle Stan's house for the summer. His home doubles as a Mystery Shack which is a tourist trap full off oddities. The siblings find themselves solving one puzzling mystery after another while encountering the adorably-weird mythical creatures of the forest. Cannot say enough about this show!! Smart, funny, charming.
Last but not least I tell you why you need Nestlé's CHUNKY candy bar in your life!!!
