As once-dead residents of the IQ-challenged town of Arcadia start to reappear, it's extraordinary that the least realistic aspect of the show is not the resurrection itself but the staggeringly dumb reaction of any of the characters. Any normal human would ask thousands of questions, wonder if they're zombies, call the Feds, get extensive medical tests, check the coffins for the bodies, go to pray, start a conspiracy theory website, leave the town - anything, literally anything along these lines that the show refuses to do.
Ignoring the vastly obvious pit of story opportunities, the writers are hell-bent on forcing the story logic into a police procedural yet even the cops and thinly-painted medical characters act like they were trained at the same police academy as the FBI from The Following. Instead of taking action on singly the biggest event in recorded history, they do literally nothing and each week the story inches along at glacial speed to the point where I wonder if they remember that these people were dead. It's almost as if the writers are scared of the plot and have just set up a bunch of generic drama moments hoping for something interesting to happen.Read more ›
I got sucked into this particular series because I DVRed it thinking it was a feature film. Anyway, so far we've watched the first 3 episodes and enjoy it. The first one was very touching having involved a small boy being reunited with his parents. The second and third were more "soapy" and they're interjecting some adult themes. We'll see where they go from here.
The first one is a must watch, especially if you have/had kids. It's pretty heavy duty. Just be aware, it's a series and it has no real ending.
There are only eight episodes, the show just ends in the middle of a lot of scenes affecting all the main characters. Cliff hangers are okay for a TV series but this takes that to the extreme. Other big TV shows that this is competing against do have a plot hook to bring you back and buy the next season, such as The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy but they finish most of the stories that have arisen in the plot. Perhaps a villain or two could have gotten their comeuppance and had to return and hide the fact they are what they hate.
It's good that we don't know what the returned are yet. I feel the show won't have a great deal to keep viewers once that happens. Are they zombies? Clones? A religious prophesy? Overflow from an afterlife destination? Aliens? From another collapsing dimension that can enter ours as their double in this one is no longer around?
Season one felt a bit rushed in constantly introducing new characters, rather than playing out the stories of the first two returned.Read more ›

|no blu ray again by abc||
ABC doesn't usually release their shows on blu-ray because they don't care.
Agents of Shield and Once Upon a Time get blu-ray releases because they're owned by Disney.
