ok, first chapter.. good.. let see how the story goes, 'cause I've found some mixed comments about the show.. I know it's finished, but that definitely will help to see the show in a fast way and not get lost in the middle
Damn you ABC for this y'all have no taste and are more than a few eggs shy a dozen for cancelling FOREVER & Resurrection get you heads out of your asses ABC.
FOREVER & Resurrection just got better and better with each episode, It is a tragedy that you cancelled these shows. These were the best shows on abc and abc keeps crap shows around to many to list and I wouldn't even type the names of those crappy shows to give them any credence. Why does ABC always cancel good shows? The public never wins.
We watched the first season in 3 days! it was so fresh and interesting. Then it got weird and slow. When one of the main characters dies in the second season, the series kind of lost us. We'll put it on pause and maybe pick it back up later.
It's a very slow paced examination of an intriguing premise - the dead come back, not as ghouls or vampires, but as healthy versions of themselves at the moment of death. A little bit like the premise of 'Miracle Day' in microcosm, without the action/thriller tropes.
It definitely has it's problems. The government agency does a lot of arbitrary and stupid things because, well, they are a plot device, not characters to be examined. This would be a lot less disconcerting were the rest of the show not so concentrated an examination of how people react when confronted with the previously unthinkable.
I find the bigotry allusions disconcerting, in that the people branded as 'unnatural' clearly are unnatural. I presume the writers want us to side against the bigots here as we would against racists and phobics, but part of me can't help wondering if the argument works as well as a justification of such things in the mundane world. Clearly not what's intended, as all of the main characters are on the anti bigotry side - I think that's just lazy writing.
Still and all, a quieter, gentler zombie (not ghoul for once) series without the blood and gore.
A somewhat scary premise , people who have tied in a small town , keep coming back to life. Some , from as far back in time to when their relatives were just kids ,even babies ! This is a very weird situation and it doesn't get any easier for the Town Doctor , when her Mother also returns. Seems all the returnees are coming back at the age of their passing.It takes a little time to see who , until the government gets called in on the situation. The Agent who first came in contact with a young Boy and reunites him with his family , seems to have a secret of hid own. Also , some of the returnees also are disappearing. So far very intriguing story. Overall good Cast of Veteran actors , as the towns peopole Omar Epps of HOUSE as the Federal Officer , Kurtwood Smith as the boy's now elderly father and Donna Murphy as a Government official , who seems to be the Govt. person -in - charge ! A very believable group of Actors telling the stories of the present and past !
