    Made the mistake of watching it on Hulu while dog sitting (they don't have cable TV). God forgive me for watching that crap.

    The show is a really bad remake of a great French series. I watched that series recently and it was great. In English it was called the Returned. It was awesome, and different than things that have come before. This show doesn't look nearly as good. I'm going to pass.

    first episode was meh..the second episode gets a little better. I'll give it a few more to see if it develops.

    The original French version can be seen on the Sundance Channel. If I were to compare it, the French version is miles above the American version. Its much ore dramatic and creepier.

    So what is the twist/catch? Just tell me what happens in the French version because I will never watch this show again and it'll be cancelled soon anyways.

    I think it is only a limited series in the U.S.. The book had promise but was really bad.

    I watched The Returned too and it was great. Based on the comments on Resurrection, don't waste your time. Watch The Returned and be done with it.

    This is one of those shows where I'm amazed that people watch the laughable previews it puts out and still end up watching the pilot.

    pretty cool that Mogwai did the soundtrack and that their music serves as inspiration to the writing.

    Will check out the music. Still skip the show.
