If a subtitled show is bad, you'll turn it off, but if it's good, it envelops you more swiftly and wholly than the very good show in English you check your email while watching. The Returned is very good. Let it have your brains.

The Returned, in French with subtitles, is beautiful, riveting and above all thought-provoking.

The whole creation, by Fabrice Gobert, is first-rate supernatural drama more than a mere horror show.

At it's heart, The Returned [a] is chilling tale. Time will tell how [it] does in an American market, but if its rave reviews overseas are a sign, viewers will brave the subtitles for a truly great find this fall.

The Returned raises the possibility that the undead could also come back in a very different form. Throw in a serial killer and you have a series that sounds terribly grim, but is written and performed so superbly that it turns out to be riveting.

There's a grownup sensibility to The Returned that doesn't pause for the kind of cheap shock in which shows like The Walking Dead specialize.

Audience Reviews for The Returned: Season 1

½

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.
