A show about the dead brought back from the grave and they don't eat human flesh? Where have I seen this before?

Uh, I'd say the overbearing obsession men of the 20-40 age range have with zombies, bacon, and hops, have made them all boring as hell.  If you can't throw a rock without hearing some early adult male orgasm about zombies or bacon, networks will figure it out and market it as such.

This is a remake of a French series, Les Revenants. Not Hollywood's idea at all. The French show was excellent, I'm sure this new series sucks ass.

And there's a remake on ITV or BBC already as well.  It's been done to death.

In The Flesh, though, was excellent.

Dead Set was not.

In the Flesh was zombies though, right? Les Revenants were regular looking people until the started to fall apart.
 
2014-03-09 04:59:23 PM  
If you told horror fans 20 years ago that in the future the most popular TV shows would be about vampires and zombies with extreme gore and lots of nudity they would think you're an idiot. Things sure have changed.

The trailer for resurrection looks OK.
 
2014-03-09 05:06:12 PM  
The show is set in a town called Arcadia. Damn, I miss that show Joan of Arcadia.

Sorta kinda.  They came back, but were sufferers of Partially Deceased Syndrome.  They didn't eat flesh after they had been rehabbed and unless they wanted to.

no, the American 'Les Revenants' reboot series is still in pre-production...
 
2014-03-09 05:15:23 PM  
And since this is on after Once Upon a Time, people will most likely stay on the channel to watch it.

No, it's not.  Les Revenants was a different thing.  Resurrection is based on a book called "The Returned," by Jason Mott, which is confusing because, on Sundance, Les Revenants was retitled "The Returned."  Les Revenants was based on a French Film of the same title that was released as "The Returned" in the UK and as "They Came Back" in the US.  A new series being developed based on "Les Revanants" called "They Came Back," but it is not Resurrection.

Confusing enough?
 
2014-03-09 05:20:08 PM  
A semi-friend of mine wrote the novel it's based on, and is a super nice guy, so I'm excited to see it.

I think the trailers/previews look neat. But I'm probably at least a little biased.

My sister is currently watching the French tv series "The Returned", which she said is based on the movie.  I watched about 10 minutes then left out of boredom.

No, it's not. It's an adaptation of novel, The Returned by Jason Mott. Go read it. It's probably at your local library.

//the series better have a better explanation for the dead returning than the book, which is to say, have one at all.

Waiting on Season 2 on Sundance. Season 1 was... A different show than I'm used to, but quite good.

Will not watch the rip-off.

knowing nothing about the background material, I assumed that this was going to be a Lost-like series, and they would never explain the "why", and instead just drag it out forever.

And the season finale of True Detective, which I'll be watching live because the lack of commercials, and then circling back to watch Cosmos at 10 so I can fast forward through the ads.

/The Walking Dead airs at 6PM for me because Comcast has only the East Coast feed in HD.

It's actually a fantastic book called "The Returned" by Jason Mott. The book blew me away.

Promise, yes, but why is it so hard to get the little things right? Such as...

Why did the ICE agent keep abandoning the kid?

Why was NO ONE watching the kid in the hospital?

Why didn't they give the kid a new shirt?

How did the cop lose the kid in the woods?

his ONE job is to take care of this kid. he is that kid's legal guardian, for all intents and purposes.

Uncle Pooky: Why was NO ONE watching the kid in the hospital?

Not enough staff?


I guess.

Uncle Pooky: Why didn't they give the kid a new shirt?

Seems like it's the same day


How many hours are in that day?

Uncle Pooky: How did the cop lose the kid in the woods?

Kids are fast and seemed to know the woods better


The cop was literally 10 feet behind him in one shot, and in the next shot the cop loses him and says "welp, he's gone."

It stars Omar Epps so I already know it's going to suck ass. But you're right: Les Revenants is an awesome show, but I could have done without seeing Simon's uncut schlong and ample tuft of pubic plumage.

To third what has been said in this thread already, this (sfw) is the only version of this story anybody needs to see.

Can't wait for series 2 (coming this fall) which promises to answer questions unanswered by series 1 (read: pretty much all of them).

Best horror media (movie/show/book/play/radio show/shadow puppetry) produced within the last 10 years sez me.

Get over your inexplicable fear of subtitles and discover that the U.S. is not the only country producing good works. No I'm not saying that everything non-U.S. is great (or that everything U.S. made is unwatchable); just that you're depriving yourselves of quite a large amount of great stuff by excluding non-USAian media.
