I like the show but I keep waiting for some kind of answer as to why these people came back. To me,Preacher James is a phony, holier Than though type. Why is that branch on his back. Also, why is that little boy so hard headed, they told him to stay in the house. No he runs outside and tells his grandmother everything.
I actually think Preacher James was right about Rachel's baby - the dead started to come back all over the world just after Rachel had the baby (just as Preacher James prophesized), and just imagine the chaos in the world (again as Preacher James prophesized) if everyone dating back to the origin of the human species were to come back ...as indeed appears to be the way things are headed? Yikes!
Daniel, Aiden, and now Ben, am I the only that thinks Emily just like men she doesn't have to look down to? :P
Resurrection is an okay show, with a really cool premise. For the following reasons however, I don't see it "returning" for a 3rd season. In real life, if the dead started to return in a little village like Arcadia, U.S.A., it would clearly be the biggest story on the news of all time, all the time - i.e., including a constant (and massive) media presence (example CNN) throughout the village. I never saw even one journalist covering the story in Arcadia at any time during either season 1 or 2, not even a single local reporter. I think that blatant missing "reality" (i.e., that the media was never anywhere to be seen) was just too much of a stretch for too many viewers to stay invested the show. My other thought is that the "returned from the dead" themselves were simply too sanitized, i.e., were not creepy enough to hold the interest of enough viewers beyond the first few season. The producers should have given the returned a more creepy edge - including in both their physical appeance and their actions. The deputy's deranged returned brother at least had a little creepy (read, "not quite right") edge to him. I think all of the returned should have had more of that "creepiness", including Bellamy and 10 year old Jacob.
Me, I am glad the returned were not too creepy, as I am getting tired of zombies chasing people all over the television.
...fair point, indeed I was not thinking full on "Walking Dead" creepy, just "something a little off about them" kind of creepy.
I hope that Clyde does not end up killing Victor. It could happen.
Love Love Love that the prison break boys are in the Flash !!!
Great Review! Right on point.I really like the show, but they not giving any answers any answers at all is just shameful. The show had such a good starting point and the first season was really good. The 2nd season was good as well but there were to many returned, there should've been much more focus on the central characters.But a really strange thing is how the viewers just dissolved. I mean ABC didn't put much effort in promoting it, besides those couple of promos announcing Michelle's character coming.I'm glad that they gave us some closure with Bellamy opening the agency for the Returned and the happy family settling down. If S03 somehow happens think it will be a summer show or something.
"I really like the show, but they not giving any answers any answers at all is just shameful." BINGO....that's why I stopped watching (Well, that...and the fact that Downton Abbey returned to PBS <grin>). There always seemed to be more questions than answers, including, as commenter Loretta Gray says, why this all started in the first place. If you ever watched a show on USA called "The 4400", the premise was similar (ie, 4400 people were abducted during the latter half of the 20th century and later returned each endowed with a special ability), and we knew who had done it by the end of the first season and why. "Resurrection" has aired two full seasons and all we see is a lot of infighting over something, the origins of which STILL aren't clear. Now, I MIGHT go back and view the eps I missed via OnDemand, but even if I don't, I won't miss the show--I found it frustrating to watch.
I watched and loved the4400. A really great show, quite similar to Resurrection when I look at it now. Resurrection had great potential but failed to peak.
Glad that Shelia stood up for herself. Doubt that we see her for a while now. Good episode, and wonder how Frank will bounce back? I actually like the Sami character; I think she brings some fun to the show and she's so naive and full of vinegar when she's pissed. Debbie crossed the line; she knows or knew better. Too smart for that, but it's television and I guess smart teenage girls make dumb decisions too. I'm intrigued with Fiona's "admirer/customer big-tipper" and where that can be heading... and Lip's excursion to Miami to see (or maybe stay) with Amanda in the next episode. Sounds like V might step out on Kev, too. Has anyone else notice that Ian is heading for a big fall? Just like Monica. Who knows, but wondering if he hits so low and tries to kill himself and ends up in a hospital? That might be what's coming? Lastly, It's interesting on what's going on with the buying up of cheap houses in run-down areas... that's really happening in cities now days, just as Frank predicted in last episode. True to life.
Nolan indicated it was a marriage of convenience (to get Louise away from Mommy dearest). Jack receives a text and takes off only to arrive a the very moment Ems and Ben are engaging?? Who sent the text and why would it bring Jack to Ben's place? Think Emily--why would she do this to Jack and why is she playing Ben??
I can usually make it through the bad episodes of Glee, but this one just was horrible. The songs and plot werent interesting and kinda stupid. I hope they can give us a decent episode before its all said and done.
Still thinking..............! They could kill Jane, Lisbon or both of them. That would be messed up but still shocking. I think I hit all the shocking scenarios. Can anyone think of any other shocking scenarios? Wait, wait, wait! Cho is RED JOHN! I'm done, I'm beginning to drop off the edge! It's a residual effect from the last 6 seasons, SORRY!
