We just finished watching “The Returned” on Netflix and the beautiful alpine landscapes really made me want to go to the mountains. It did annoy me that Netflix didn’t renew it for a second season because I actually thought it was quite well executed and there was something so creepy about it. The sense of dread I felt watching it grew with every episode. That said, I don’t understand why, if there was a perfectly good French version (as there was because the French version is at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes), American television tried to reboot the series TWICE with no success. Anyway, that’s another topic for another day. The Netfix version, in my mind is worth a watch, if for nothing else than the beautiful and eerie scenery.
Unfortunately we are not currently near any mountains so we took a nature walk instead. Such a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon and we felt great afterwards. Until we got home and immediately felt extremely hungover but c’est la vie!
