Let me settle which version of "The Returned" I’m talking about right away. The piece of media I’m talking about is a French language series, named Les Revenants. A subtitled version of its first series was shown on UK TV this year. I am not talking about the planned US TV series, "Resurrection", which is an English language series that was originally going to be titled "The Returned" because it is based on the novel "The Returned" by Jason Mott. Although Les Revenants and Jason Mott’s "The Returned" are based on a similar premise (the dead return - not as decomposing, shambling zombies but as functioning human beings that look just as they did before they died) they aren’t related in any other way. Are you more confused than that time two films about Truman Capote were released in the same year? Don’t worry, it gets easier and more fun from here.

Lots of spoilers )

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
