5.0 out of 5 stars I nearly deleted my recording of the show just because it was subtitled!, 4 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Returned - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Like my title says, I recorded this on my digibox, and had 4 episodes stored (couldn't be bothered to watch something that required reading late at night)... I came so so close to deleting the recording, but I am SO glad I didn't.

This is quite possible one of the best short series I have watched in a very long time. The plot is brilliant and starts as it means to go on, you don't have to sit there wondering what its about, it gets good about 5 mins into the first episode.

The cast works well together, and all the main characters are perfect for their roles. The subtitles (I hate subtitles with a vengeance) don't detract at all from the storyline, and are perfectly timed, there is no delay between the voices and the text. And to be honest by the end of the series, even with my very limited knowledge of french (oui, non, the occasional swear word) I picked up quite a bit going along.

Cant wait for next year and the next series to be aired!!

As a deaf person, sub-titles are a most wonderful technological development so, before you dismiss them as annoying, think of those who are deaf or hard of hearing - the sub titles are for US.
