Yesterday, I finished the eight episodes that form the first season of Resurrection. The show aired March 9th 2014 and is based on the book “The Returned” by Jason Mott. It’s an ABC show and it’s been compared to the french show “Les Revenants”.
The plotline follows a town in Missouri, Arcadia, where people starting coming back from the dead. Everything else is a spoiler and, since that was all I knew before starting the show, that’s all I will tell you.
I am a big fantasy/sci-fi fan and I really loved the plotline even before I started watching it and, I must say, I was definetly not disappointed. The show is amazing. It’s honestly the kind of show that will keep you craving for more. And the last episode kept me literally on the edge of my seat.
When it comes to actors, you might recognize Agent Bellamy as Dr. Eric Foreman from “House M.D.” and Omar Epps is great in both shows, just as he was in his 10 episode participation in “E.R.” and in the movies he’s done.
Newcomer Landon Gimenez, who is only 11, is also AMAZING on the show and his acting as Jacob Langston, who’s one of the main characters (if not the main character) is surreally good.
Matt Craven (Crimson Tide, X-Men:First Class, Disturbia, A Few Good Man), Devin Kelley (Chernobyl Diaries, The Chicago Code, Anchors), Mark Hildreth (Dragon Ball Z, Pirates of The Caribben: At World’s End, Barbie of Swan Lake), Kurtwood Smith (That 70’s Show, RoboCop, Dead Poets Society, Rambo III), Frances Fisher (Titanic, Unforgiven, House of Sand and Fog, The Lincoln Lawyer), Samaire Armstrong (It’s a Boy Girl Thing, Just My Luck, The O.C.), Sam Hazeldine (The Raven, The Monuments Men), Kathleen Munroe (Call Me Fitz) and Lori Beth Sikes (Get Low) all have significant roles and are all doing a great job.
The second season of the show premires this sunday, the 28th!
