Same here. I watched the entire first season of Resurrection just to see how it would go, and couldn't bring myself to care about the second season enough to watch.
I'm hooked on the Returned now, especially for reasons like lifeofwylie said.

The more I read, the more I think many of you are right, that she won't be dead. "Victoria" is dead. "Victoria" has been expressing suicidal feelings. (note: expressing feelings, not feeling).
Perhaps "Victoria" is dead, but Queen V is sipping cocktails on the beach in the Maldives watching it all burn!

Terrie this review's only been up a few hours. Cut him some slack. :)

I had to die laughing at Father Abraham.
It's a rugby song that is admittedly one of my favorites, as it's one only the men's teams sing and they all end up pantsless by the end.

The Following Review: Moving Right Along

I really wanted to love this episode. I started off thinking "sure, I'll watch the Following so I can multitask and hubs can tell me if anything interesting happens" since it's been dragging so badly. I'm usually the one saying "come on, give them some slack!" as people bash on shows, especially this one with FBI missteps. But it's been tough. Then, at one mid-point I actually put down my phone to watch b/c it was getting interesting. Sorry I jinxed it, guys. 1 - I find it REALLY hard to believe that boyfriend would just TAKE the laptop. Seriously? There could be SO much evidence on there to save people's lives, but you're more worried about the hookup tape?
2 - why - WHY - the HELL didn't they tell the DA Shiela that "hey, the entire security detail is missing or dead, we might have a case of witness tampering here", which would have AT LEAST gotten a small EXTENSION on time. They were at the bleeping courthouse when they first heard, well within the hour. Really? REALLY?
(at this point I angrily picked up my phone just to play an online game out of spite) I would have rather stomached some crappy exposition rather than a plot hole that big. Had they made the deadline, the story might have issues going forward (but again, they're on the run, so whyyyyyy). They did make cover for others: Gina saying "when I see you tomorrow" explains why no backup at the docks. Fine. I get Mike leaving Max, even though it was stupid, stupid, stupid. It's in-character. Even Mark getting away (which was ANNOYING) KIND of makes sense. I was SO hopeful, come on guys, pull it together. I kind of like bringing Joe back. Good chance for redemption of the character. Like someone else had said, he got too weird after a while, when he used to be a captivating character. I generally like the idea I think of Strauss being the new baddie. Could be a good thread. AND it could have gone on with him as a FUGITIVE and filling the plot hole. Just saying.

I really thought that the frogs meant something toxic afoot. It didn't look like dehydration to me, they weren't deflated and the way they were strewn about seemed more to me like they died suddenly, not dehydration.
Anyone else pick up on that, or was I assigning more to it than was necessary?

The alcohol was to make his "accidental suicide" more plausible.
A smart agent wouldn't generally just walk into traffic, but if they found alcohol in his system, it would be looked at less closely.
Or, at least, that's my guess. :)

I actually thought this was a great episode. I expected the store owner but not the cop - well, thought of it but dismissed it. I thought this was an incredible character episode, and yes, even liked Hanson.

I had the exact same thought. It was almost insulting to think she couldn't process that information without his help. She's normally 3 steps in front of everyone! Remember dear reviewer that she doesn't want to format friendships out of fear for them ending up DEAD. Not just bc of secrets.

Didn't he actually look kind of hot in a sylvester kind of way when he yelled "I can't hold this thing up much longer!" as he was holding up the world? lol
