The last episode of The Returned
Channel 4 have snapped this one up and commissioned Series 2 – don’t think we are gonna get answers tonight! Was also reading in the paper that all the filming took place between 4pm and 9pm which certainly contributes to the eerie lighting. A goodun, but telly is about to go rubbish what with this, Luther and Justified all hitting series ends at the same time …Posted 4 years agoFOGSubscriber
Was fascinated at first but thought it became far too strung out with nothing happening. Too many random plot items like the dead animals in the lake. I don’t expect to get a neat Poirot type ending where you find out everybody’s secrets but the end smacked far too much of, Let’s make sure we get a second series.Posted 4 years ago
Incidentally it is a bit of a coincidence that there are two weird series featuring lakes and mountain scenery on at the same time – Top of the Lake and Les Revenants. The NZ offering is weird in a different way but still interesting. The helicopter shots made me definitely want to go biking in NZ!Ro5eyMember
You know when you play fetch with a dog and you pretend to throw the stick but you don’t and the dog runs off after nothing…. that’s how I feel right now…
This dog will not be coming back for more… you can only pretand to throw the stick so many times.
Having said that… Loved the first episode… great twist at the end. Was hoping it was going to build into something good, but ultimately not a single question is answer…. and it doesn’t matter how wonderfully it’s shot, how good the sound track is, how pretty the ladies are or how fantastically atmospheric it is…. without descent coherent plot…. it’s boringPosted 4 years agomrmoofoMember
So, I am being a bit thick this morning ;;;
The dead came back for revenge on those responsible for the previous flood?
Or was the flooding of the village just a surreal thing like the animals floating in the lake and the never ending road journey.
What were the dead back for?Posted 4 years agodirtycrewdomMember
I have been really enjoying this. I haven’t found a problem with it being coherent, it has just been building the story. If it didn’t do this you would all be complaining that it was a bit too simple!!
I didn’t know that was the last in the season. Bit of a disappointing ending. Will have to wait until 2014 then!Posted 4 years ago
