It has been like years to me since season 1 of this show. I am looking forward to seeing where it continues ,even though I have to read sub titles to understand what they are saying.

Everyone kept claiming ABC's series "Resurrection" was a take off of the Returned... I like the French version, will give this one a try.
Other than previously dead people coming back, the 2 shows are very different.

Be interesting to see if A&E's show is any good. Seems to be hit or miss on remakes being any good, more miss than hit.

Home of the HOKIES!!
Found this very interesting. So much like the original but so American at the same time. From the season preview it seems like it's not going to follow the French to the T, which may or may not be a good idea. I hope it does well as its something that has caught my attention.

1/2 hour in and the A@E version is eerily similar to the French show. Patiently waiting for season two on Canal .

I recorded the eight episode Canal series a couple of years ago when it aired on Sundance but never got around to watching. Last night, I watched episode one on A&E followed by episode one of the original. The new one is pretty much scene for scene except for a few minor order changes and one missing scene near the end. Too soon to offer any real opinion except that the new show feels less moody, more 'in your face' than the French version.

The producers claim they will mostly follow the original through the first four episodes and then veer off into new territory for the final six episodes of season one.

Loved the pilot episode and watched episode #2 On Demand the other day. This looks to be a great series. Love the eerie little kid, and I like the idea of focusing on one character a week. I find it works well on HBO's The Leftovers and it seems to be working good on this show so far.

No, the French version is way better than Abc 's version. Although I watch both shows.
You mean A&E, and yes I agree. Starting ep 6 soon. Never thought I would get hooked on a subtitled show.

The little kid is MUCH more eerie in the original, and BTW, it is now on Netflix.

I agree, but he's not too bad.

The girl playing Camille on the other hand, couldnt act her way out of a paper sack

Maybe so, but it's my loss. I can't watch subtitled dialog. The Bridge almost lost me many times with all the back and forth in spanish. I can tolerate it more in The American's in russian, but I would never be able to watch an entire episode of something, let alone an entire series with subtitles. Besides, I don't care for Netflix.

The first season I watched on the Sundance channel , so the A&E has the second season on it?

If I understand this correctly, the A&E version is American remake of what aired on Sundance, which originally aired on Canal+ in france back in 2012.

From what I just read, Sundance said that it will have the second season of the French Version this year some time. I really liked the French version though it was only 8 episodes. Season 1 is on Netflix.
