The Returned - French TV series

Anyone watching this show on Sundance Channel? Here's the description:

In an idyllic French mountain town, a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they do not yet know is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. As they struggle to reintegrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality. But it seems they are not the only ones to have returned from the dead. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past.

The New York Times recently profiled this outstanding foreign drama series and pronounced it “fresh and unexpected.” The Independent wrote “THE RETURNED…is actually one of the greatest, creepiest, most compelling shows brought to…TV screens in 2013,” and The Daily Telegraph commented, “Probably the most stylish thing you’ll see on TV this year.”


Episodes started airing in October, but I missed the pilot and have had to catch up with it when they've run marathons. They're scheduling to air it again from the beginning on Sunday the 8th. I'm only one episode in, but I'm already enjoying it.

Sounds interesting enough.

It looks like a Blu-Ray set will be released by Music Box Films on January 21, 2014.

That might be a better option, since Sundance Channel isn't HD. I'm already hooked though.

The band Mogwai did the soundtrack and it's quite excellent. I've been looking forward to seeing what goes along with the music.
