The Returned is an American remake of the Emmy award-winning French series, Les Revenants, itself a television remake of the movie bearing the same name.

The show focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences.

Interpersonal relationships are examined with intrigue and depth as strange phenomena begin to occur.

    I haven't watched Les Revenants either but I'll go with the one I'd understand better. Accoridng to some interviews, the stories of both shows will divert by Episode 6.

    Let it be known that:
    1. Resurrection is based on a book called "The Returned".
    2. Les Revenants/The Returned is based on the French film "Les Revenants" (internationally known as "They Came Back").
    3. Both shows share similar themes (as is In The Flesh) but they are not related nor are both based from the same source material.
  • have you guys seen it?

    I love Les Revenants!

    will try to catch this later this week, so many new shows to watch for!

    Ohh.. Thanks for clearing that up. :lol:
    Naconfuse ako dun ah. :devious:

    So how was it?

    I watched the French original version first.

    I don't know pero natawa ako doon sa return scene ni Camilla with her mom . Wala akong goose bump effect promise. Bakit naging comedy ang dating?

    Pero habang tumatagal tumitindi ang drama.
    Hindi ang mga scary moments.

    Sa totoo lang hindi naman talaga nakakatakot ito.
    Meron lang weird atmosphere.

    Then itong US version halos same lang talaga ng screenplay except sa konting bawas at konting dagdag.

    Mas improved ang cinematography dito sa US. I loved it.


    Mas Ok din tingnan ang dad ni Camilla dito. Mas may appeal konti.:)

    Ok rin ang pagkasama kay Mary Elizabeth Winstead kasi litaw na litaw ang pagiging indie Best Actress niya.

    Siya lang kilala ko rito he he

    Gusto ko ang bridge sa US kaysa sa France

    BRIDGE_zps4r8evyzk.jpg

    Nakakadagdag creepiness ang mga puno at ang lake o river sa tabi .
    Sa France kasi isolated bridge lang.

    VIC_zpsj9nxir1c.jpg

    Mas cute ang Victor dito. Super cuddly.
    Sa France talaga nakakatakot ang hitsura.

    CAM_zpsafwzgksw.jpg

    Yung Camilla naman eh halos magkamukha lang.


    It's a good series pero hindi naman masyado nakaka-excite agad panoorin ang kasunod ng episode. For me lang huh??? Based sa PILOT.

    Akala ko kasi magsisigaw ako sa takot at kaba.:lol:
    Drama lang siya about resurrected dead persons na walang Sadako threat.

    Pero hindi ko bibitawan ito. Papanoorin ko pa rin kasi curious ako bakit critically-acclaimed at nanalo ng Emmys.

    ^The first episode was creepily hitting a lot of good notes.

    And nice to learn the girl from Step-Up/Final Destination 3 is here. :D

    Love the Pilot!

    I tried watching the French version, pero inaantok ako. Hindi ko natapos yung first episode ng French version kasi ang hirap tandaan who's who.

    Kaya naman nasurprise ako sa ending ng Pilot with the twin reveal.

    So lahat ba ng bumalik sa US version, may counterpart sa Fench or may nadagdag and inalis?
  • Parehong-pareho talaga sa French version yung scenes :lol:

    Based on the first two episodes of the US one, I think I prefer the French version because it's better acted. :)
  • j5bataj5bata PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    The show will change course from Les Revenants by Episode 6 onwards and set out on its own path.

    I don't know what constitutes "better acting" when there's really no barometer to determine which of which is better.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Mas like ko itong Episode 2.

    Tumitindi na kasi ang effect sa mga living ang pagbabalik buhay ng mga nilibing.

    Effective masyado ang music sa pag-create ng creepy atmosphere.

    Magagaling talaga itong mga indie actors na nakuha nila.

    Hindi ko na papanoorin ang French version.
    mas love ko itong sa US.
  • randy ortonrandy orton PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    So i gave Les Revenants another try. OK naman pala. Now na mas kilala ko yung mga characters. Mas nafocus ako da nangyayari, hindi na nakakalito who's who and which is which.
    Natapos ko na 3 eps and I'm hooked! Can't wait to finish the rest!
  • j5bataj5bata PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Medyo umuunting nang magconnect ang dots sa Episode 2 although
    Hindi pa masyadong clear kung anong ikinamatay ni Simon. Suspetsa ko, involved dito si Tommy in one way or another
    .

    I feel bad for Camille, total adjustment itong pinagdadaanan niya.

    Ang dudungis tingnan ng sa French version :lol:
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ^korek hero kaya tinamad na ako na sundan pa.
    sobrang grainy...marumi ang cinematography.


    look at this shot from the US version

    vlcsnap-2015-03-12-01h14m56s30_zpsa0cyzhn5.png

    ang ganda lang ng pagka-capture sa church ceiling.
    hanep pa ang lighting.*okay*
  • j5bataj5bata PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Letse rin iyung mga nagsasabing "OMG, the US version is horrible! French version is better" sa Facebook. Mga loko-loko rin ang mga ito eh iisa-dalawang episode pa lang ang naipapalabas, "terible" na agad? Pweh!
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    may ganun??? well horrific Francophiles sila.*peace*
  • randy ortonrandy orton PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Mga elitista naman yung wagas maka judge. Porke foreign language. Artsy fartsy na agad and better than everything!

    Ako naman lahat ng may US version, laging tingin ko better ang US version. :lol:

    But the Story just gets better, yung mga nag give up na sa French version. I suggest try again. Ako, surprised na mahohook and I didn't regret my decision to try it again.
  • I'd say that because I watched Les Revenants before, it's a repeat experience for me, so nawala na saken yung thrill or suspense or WTF moments.

    After watching the back-to-back episodes of the US version, the major let down for me was the actor playing Victor. Victor, for me on the original series is the silent character that will creep you out just by looking at him, it wasn't executed really well on the US version.

    But overall, I think, the US version weren't that bad at all.
  • j5bataj5bata PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    I think the idea behind getting something of a less creepy Victor for the US version is that you, as a viewer, would still see him as an innocent-looking enough lad who you won't suspect of any wrongdoing.

    It just takes some really good acting to look menacing behind the boyish charm.
