FROM Season 2 Ep 1 is the 11th chapter of science fiction horror television series created by John Griffin. Its premise involves a nightmarish town in middle America that traps everyone who enters where unwilling residents strive to stay alive and search for a way out, but they are plagued by the terrifying nocturnal creatures from the surrounding forest, and secrets hidden in the town itself.

Entitled “Strangers in a Strange Land” FROM Season 2 Ep 1 returns us to this mini-LOST world where JJ Abrams-like mystery boxes are routinely thrown in our faces but no solutions are provided whatsoever. Season 1 came across as if the writers had no idea what the story was about, creating more questions than answers and content to lead the audience on a wild goose chase for as long as possible.
FROM Season 2 Ep 1 picks up from where the season 1 finale left us. Sheriff Boyd having stepped into the faraway tree and teleported into what looked like a deep well, Victor and Tabitha continued to make their way through the underground where the deadly creatures slept during the daytime and to compound the situation further a new busload of strangers arrived in the town. Of course, this meant that the town’s inhabitants would have to convince the newcomers of the bizarre scenario they found themselves in.
Of course, by the end of this chapter, we are none the wiser as usual about what the hell is going on with this town. No surprise that LOST director Jack Bender continues to be involved in FROM and thus the vibe is loads of mysteries and strange happenings but nothing that will make any sense to a viewer, not even one that has been paying close attention to the narrative. Will FROM get any better?
… still there’s more …
