The annoying thing about really great shows that just happen to not be in the English language is that they usually get a remake and they're usually not great. But this is also the case of UK to US remakes which are usually just plain s**t. The Fawlty Towers remake anyone? The attempted Spaced remake anyone? Life on Mars anyone? I suppose The Office was an exception.
This was another show that I watched the first series and just left the second out. An eery story about a town in the mountains that experiences the dead or 'the returned' come back to life. Each story of the dead was fascinating but it became more of a thriller when weirder things start happening and the bigger questions are asked. I meant to watch the second series but just never got round to it. I know there was a US version (of course there was) that was quickly got scrapped and rightly so. Why not just watch the original? Its disturbing and emotional at the same time and set in a small town where quite a few people have died mysteriously... what's not to like?
