I’m a HUGE fan of creepy, odd, and exciting series on TV. I’ve seen them all from X-files, Lost, Fringe, Under The Dome and more. You can usually tell by the first episode if it’s going to be good or not. I watched the first episode of Resurrection 2 weeks ago before I went to LA and was left with a cliffhanger wanting more. Then we watched the second episode at ABC while in LA. Let me say that this show BRINGS it! Questions are answered, but more questions follow. It gives you the creeps while still being exciting, PLUS the cast is at the top of the A List. What exactly is Resurrection?
What happens when someone that you’ve mourned and buried mysteriously appears at your doorstep as if not a single day has gone by? The lives of the people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved-ones miraculously return, causing them to confront the emotional depth of their relationships and what it means to be given a second chance. Resurrection will make you question everything you believe. Watch Sundays at 9|8c on ABC.
ABC’s “Resurrection” stars Mark Hildreth as Pastor Tom Hale, Kurtwood Smith as Henry Langston, Landon Gimenez as Jacob Langston, Frances Fisher as Lucille Langston, Omar Epps as J. Martin Bellamy, Devin Kelley as Maggie Langston, Matt Craven as Fred Langston, Samaire Armstrong as Elaine Richards and Sam Hazeldine as Caleb Richards. (ABC/Bob D’Amico)
“Unearth” – The Langstons, especially Sheriff Fred, are forced to confront secrets from their past they’d rather leave buried when Bellamy pushes to have Jacob’s tomb exhumed. Maggie agrees to help Bellamy in his investigation, and Pastor Tom reaches out to Jacob, his childhood friend. The Richards family adjusts to Caleb’s return, the second for Arcadia. But unlike Jacob, Caleb claims he has no memory of his death, on “Resurrection,” SUNDAY, MARCH 16 (9:00-10:01 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network.
We got to chat with the Executive Producers who assured us that they have an end in sight. This will not be one of those shows that goes on and on and leaves us hanging at the end. In fact what they pitched ABC was the last scene of the last episode. I find that very refreshing. I know that I can get attached to these characters and have a satisfying conclusion. That doesn’t always happen in TV today.
Resurrection is loosely based on the book The Returned by Jason Mott which I devoured within a day. The book is different and intriguing and I’m wondering how the show will differ.
Bottom line is that if you are a fan of the supernatural or just like a series with a great story then check out Resurrection!
