The Returned: Season 1 (2013)

Critic Reviews for The Returned: Season 1

All told, a heavily crowded series, stuffed with characters and interwoven tales of vengeance, betrayal, murder-unyielding in its darkness, unfailing in its power to hold you in its grip.

Creepy-cool. Much more complex and interesting (not to mention sexier) than ABC's current, virtually identical "Resurrection."

What we do have, though, is a sad and often tense show that promises to answer many questions in its second season, although you get the sense that knowledge and understanding will come with a high price.

It's all mood, mystery, and restraint - the third item in that list a tremendous surprise, considering the show-no-mercy extremes that seized French horror cinema in the mid-to-late 2000s.

The Returned... manages to be spooky, sad, and sexy-an elegant Halloween treat. I'm five episodes in and fighting the impulse to binge-watch the whole thing.

Rare is the show that addresses the ordinary madness caused by grief, but Les Revenants acknowledges that magical thinking as a matter of course.

Audience Reviews for The Returned: Season 1


An incredibly atmospheric tv series, Les Revenants treats memories and human interaction with subtelty but also engaging us with a very well pulled mistery, never forgetting it's core idea of the dead coming to life and how they will adapt, how they will be received and why they've returned.

Feels like when Lost was great and that is an excellent thing. Here's to hoping that Season 2 will continue it's intimacy and deepens on the mistery.
