It was pretty good, I will probably keep watching it. But, at the same time, it's just nowhere near as good as the original series. I don't think anyone will ever be able to make it quite as magical as Carl Sagan.
I find myself watching more and more asian, spanish, and french films and shorts. Creativity seems to have stagnated in the US. The only original things are coming from other countries.. Great short. loved every minute of it!
I have not read Jason Mott`s novel "The returned" which this show is based on, so I cannot be sure where the series is going to go. The pilot seems very similar to the French Sundance series by the same name. Either way, the pilot was very good. Can`t wait for the next episode.
I power-watched season 1 & 2. It is a pretty good series although season 2 gets a little hard to follow in the middle episodes. Still, if you like conspiracy/spy stuff, it is fun. The series does stretch it at times, but it works overall.
