    The dialogue doubles as patronizing directives of what we’re supposed to be thinking, carefully dictating Resurrection’s themes.

    On the evidence of the first two episodes, Resurrection seems just one more twist on an American obsession with investigating what lies beneath the surfaces of rural or suburban idylls. As a device to tell the same old stories about illicit love affairs, family estrangement, hidden crimes, and the secrets parents keep from children and visa versa, the arbitrary resurrection of the dead seems pretty extreme, and, frankly, a wasted opportunity.

    A great show with an interesting premise.The acting, writing, and directing is pretty good, especially for a network tv drama, where the writing is cheesy (ex. NCIS). I can't wait for more! Full Review »

    10! A light fare, intriguing, dramatic, interesting, and somewhat-spiritual mystery that is completed with a quality cast & writing, and gorgeous cinematography and editing. A twist here, a turn there, RESURRECTION is a beautifully-crafted event series that includes just enough drama and thrills to keep you tuning in & wanting more for the next 7 episodes. Full Review »

    This show is a ripoff of the French series "The Returned"... The acting is flat, pacing is terrible and it looks like it was all shot in model homes. Don't waste your time. I'd rather shovel snow than watch this piece of crap Full Review »
