Editorial Reviews

What happens when someone you've mourned and buried suddenly appears at your front door as if not a single day has gone by? After the initial shock, would it be a blessing... or a curse? Immerse yourself in the powerful first season of ABC's RESURRECTION, an astonishing story of mystery, relationships and second chances. Life in Arcadia, Missouri changes forever when Jacob (a boy who drowned over three decades ago) miraculously appears on his parents' doorstep alive and unharmed -- and still just eight years old. But Jacob is only the first. As more and more deceased return, the entire town is thrust into conflict fueled by love and loathing, fear and faith, suspicion and redemption. Meanwhile, as tensions mount, a desperate race to find answers and defuse the situation begins -- before complete chaos erupts. Own RESURRECTION: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON on DVD and relive all eight gripping episodes plus bonus features.

2.0 out of 5 stars Infuriatingly close to something good April 15, 2014
So Resurrection had a predictably strong opening on network TV and why wouldn't it? Set upon the immediately gripping concept of loved ones returning from the dead, the promise of the premise is strong, surely guaranteeing to hit the sweet spot in the Venn diagram of mystery, fantasy and horror. Yet week after week, ABC misses the mark on the show failing to fire on any of the dramatic cylinders that are clearly primed to compete with the ratings juggernaut of the Walking Dead. How could they have messed this up?

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Small Problem April 28, 2014
Verified Purchase
Because I've spoken with several others who agree, I feel comfortable in mentioning the fact that there are more female cast members being introduced who look so similar to one another (same general face and body structures, long brown hair) that I'm beginning to have difficulty in sorting them out when they appear. Even the female characters who have been deceased for years and years are all wearing the same hair styles and are nearly interchangeable..... and it's often more than a little initially confusing until the content and dialogue eventually determine who they are. Whoever did the casting was obviously drawn to a certain type - and it's become distracting. Just saying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great but not overly terrible May 13, 2014
By Aus-jol
Format:DVD
When I first saw the commercials advertising this show I started really looking forward to it and the first couple of episodes were worth the wait. But then I started watching the French show 'The Returned' (Les Revenants) and it makes this series look second rate. The acting is far superior in the French version and the entire season of The Returned is gripping from start to finish. In comparison, when I came back to continue watching Resurrection, I found the acting much more wooden and the storyline much more unbelievable. Having said that, some of the performances are good in this series - the little boy who plays Jacob is not bad, and the people who play the his parents and his uncle are good. So, in general, not a bad first season, but not outstanding. If you want an entertaining and different American series then give it a go, but if you want a really satisfying show that will make you think long after you finish watching it, head straight to 'The Returned'!!

I really enjoyed the series. I'm just very disappointed that there were such few episodes. The last episode left you completely up in the air. Will this be continued in the future?

4.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good April 6, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm not a big TV series fan. Back in the '90s, I liked the XFiles. So you can see, my tastes run in the sci-fi, horror genre.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paradoxical Adventure April 9, 2014
I have been captivated by this series ever since the first episode. The cast is first rate and the on location sets provide realism to the town. I'm already an instant fan. In the episode"Insomnia" Kirtwood Smith delivers a subtle yet powerfully emotional performance in the scene where he is looking at an old scrapbook of Jacob he has hidden in the basement. Kirtwood earned my respect as a very serious and seasoned actor in that scene. Beautifully done. Brought me to tears.

Format:DVD
This looked like an interesting concept, Flight of the Navigator style, a young boy turns up who has been missing (well dead in this case) for a few decades and hasn't aged a day. His now elderly parents have a hard time believing and adjusting to this which obviously affects their own relationship with each other. It asks the question what would you do? Would you care if it wasn't the exact same person back from the grave if the new clone (for want of a better word) believed it was and felt you were its parents/friends, boyfriend/girlfriend? Would you just take up where life left off when they passed away? What if you've moved on such as married someone else?

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A strange yet fun show
This show sometimes a little weak on logic but I really enjoyed it. Every time I thought we had a handle on what is going on, it would twist away in a new direction.

I love this show. If you've lost a loved one, it will leave you wishful. But it is a good story line and the plot moves along pretty briskly. Great characters.

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.
