  • The Returned/ Les Revenants

    I don't know if this fabulous French TV drama has been shown overseas, but I've been watching on Channel 4 and the whole series had me hooked! I thought the ending was brilliant, it left enough things ambiguous to look forward to the second series due next year.

    For those of you who don't know imdb explains it well: The Returned opens in a small mountain community which is rocked to its core when several local people who are presumed dead suddenly re-appear at their homes. Despite having passed away some years earlier, these ghostly characters appear in human form, they have not aged, and they are completely unaware of their own fatality. Determined to reclaim their lives and start over, they slowly come to realize that they are not the only ones to have been brought back from the dead. Their return augers torment for their community when a series of gruesome murders bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past. This is a homecoming like no other.

    It's gripping to find out who is dead and who's not. It's well worth the watch if you haven't seen it. It reminds me of Twin Peaks, how it surrounds a very small tight-knit community that is shook up (though it's obviously not as good as Twin Peaks).
