Screener Squad: The Woods

The Woods TV Series Review


Based on the Harlan Coben novel, “The Woods” is a new Netflix Polish drama/mystery that gives a new meaning to the term ‘slow burn’. The story follows Pawel, a leading prosecutor, dealing with a new high profile case while being haunted by the tragic disappearance of his sister 25 years prior. The story takes us back and forth from the mid-’90s and the 2000s as young Pawel and present-day Pawel try to understand what happened to his sister and friends. The show does provide some twists and turns but did our critics enjoy the outcome? Listen as Bradly, Lewayne, and Wright discuss the complicated story!
