On March 9th, A&E will premiere The Returned, their entry in the increasingly popular "people return from the dead years later in a small town" genre. Quick question: Does this look a lot like the original French show it's based on, or is it just me?

Les Revenants is definitely the best version of this show we've had so far, so they can't go too wrong trying to capture the same feel. But executive producer Carlton Cuse has said a lot that they're going to deviate from the other show a fair bit. This does not back up that assertion.
