It is a drama series exploring the story of a group of residents living in the city of Arcadia. Within a short period of time, these people find themselves walking a completely different juncture where their lives have changed forever when their deceased loved ones return. These people face strange and different paths in their lives during this period.
Resurrection shouldn't need to pad out episodes with implications of buried affairs and a possible murder. That they're likely not going to be is disappointing, but not surprising in the tradition of network television trying to take on ambitious ideas.
Part sappy drama, part supernatural whodunnit, Resurrection suffers greatly from following on the heels of Sundance's airing of the far superior French series The Returned, which bore an almost identical plot.
Resurrection is similar in premise to Sundance Channel's The Returned. The ABC show is more blandly cast and written, but it's still capable on occasion of hitting you in the gut emotionally, if not scrambling your brains.
