RESURRECTION – My rating: 7/10

ResurrectionOK, the suspense level is high, the mystery level is high but my expectations are  apprehensive at best.  Because of Flash Forward, I am skeptical about this new series, starring Omar Epps as immigration agent, J. Martin Bellamy.  The story focuses on Arcadia, a small town in Missouri.  First, an eight year old boy who drowned 32 years ago, trying to save his aunt who fell in the lake, resurfaces, alive and well and unaged.  His parents, Henry and Lucille Langston are played by Frances Fisher and Kurtwood Smith, respectively are 32 years older and now suddenly have their son back, except that he’s still 8 years old.  Their son, Jacob is played by Landon Gimenez.  His DNA matches his father’s and his memory is impeccable.  Next, Caleb Richards, who died of a heart attack and has been dead for 8 years, resurfaces with no knowledge that he died of a heart attack.  No one knows what’s going on.  At last episode, Tom, the local preacher, discovered his former fiance, who committed suicide 12 years ago, has also been resurrected and was seated in his church alive and well.  All of this makes for an exciting series but so did Flash Forward, which was about almost everyone in the world falling unconscious for 2 minutes.  For those 2 minutes, you were able to see your future or not.  Those who didn’t see their future knew they didn’t have one.  The network left us hanging in midstream, without closure.  ABC is known for pulling the plug without explanation.  I’m sticking with this one in hopes that they will let Resurrection run its course.  I heard it’s still in the probationary stage.  I find it entertaining — check it out!
