Re "The Resurrection's challenge," Opinion, April 20 Skid row soup-kitchen operator Jeff Dietrich's writing is always confrontational, annoying and inspiring. This article was true to form, only more so. I can't believe Dietrich feels that he has to measure up to the risen Christ. His work may be a lot of things, and it ain't easy. The description of the homeless man needing a bathroom in the early morning - whom Dietrich turned away, citing the fact that his facility wasn't open yet and prior experiences letting the homeless use his bathroom - was poignantly real.

ABC's "Resurrection" came to life with strong ratings Sunday night, according to early numbers from Nielsen.  "Resurrection," in which residents of Arcadia, Mo., are visited by the dead, drew an average of 13.3-million viewers in its premiere. Among key 18-to-49-year-old viewers, the premiere scored a 3.6 rating, marking TV's best mid-season series debut in about two years in that demographic, since "Smash" launched with a huge lead-in from "The Voice. " A ratings point in the 18-to-49 category equals about 1.3 million viewers.  Sunday's numbers mark a strong start for the new drama that faced competition from AMC's "The Walking Dead" and the "Cosmos" reboot on Fox and multiple other networks.

I go to Mass almost every Sunday, but I try to avoid the big holidays. Especially Easter. In most Christian churches, Easter is a kind of triumphalistic affirmation of Christian certainty. My sense is that the Resurrection is not a celebration; it is a threat and a challenge. Even though I am a Catholic Worker and I live and work with the homeless and serve a meal at our soup kitchen every day, I don't want to encounter the risen Christ, for how can any of us begin to measure up to his example?

If you missed the French series "The Returned" on Sundance Channel last year, or if it was just too opaque/mood-soaked/subtitled (i.e. French) for you, ABC now offers "Resurrection," a brighter if not bolder and certainly faster-paced (i.e. American) version of a world in which the dead begin returning to the ones they left behind. Based on the Jason Mott novel "The Returned," the series opens gorgeously enough with a young boy (Landon Gimenez) waking up in a rice paddy in China.

Kurtwood Smith turned the image of the sitcom dad on its ear in the raucous Fox sitcom "That '70s Show" as Red Forman, the tough-nosed war vet father of Eric (Topher Grace). Red was the antithesis of such sweater-clad warm-and-fuzzy TV dads as Ozzie Nelson on "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" and Bill Cosby on "The Cosby Show.

Los Abandoned always had a flair for the theatrical. So when the L.A. bilingual band decided to stage a one-night-only reunion show at the Echoplex this Friday, four years after breaking up in memorably dramatic style, it named the event the "Resurrection" concert and timed it to celebrate Day of the Dead. The set-opening number? Band members are joking about covering Peaches & Herb's "Reunited. " "It's basically a big-ass thank-you to our fans, to our community," said bass player Moises Baqueiro, also known as Vira Lata, explaining what prompted Los Abandoned to come together for a projected 30-song show that will trace its entire creative arc and empty out its catalog.

Pericle Fazzini, the sculptor whose monumental statue "The Resurrection" is the backdrop for Pope John Paul II's weekly general audiences, died Friday at the age of 74. The sculptor, a native of Grottammare on the eastern Italian coast, began his career as an exponent of the Roman school of the 1930s. His early wooden pieces, characterized by their simple style, led to the stark later figures, which he fashioned almost exclusively in metal, particularly bronze.

Fox's "Family Guy" and ABC's "Resurrection" were Sunday night's highest-rated network shows among key young adults, though it appears that golf-boosted CBS had the best ratings overall.  "Family Guy" scored a rating of 2.1 among key 18- to 49-year-old viewers, according to early numbers from Nielsen. Though Peter Griffin et al were down 9% from last week, the animated comedy was the top nonsports program on the major networks in the advertiser-coveted age group.  In 18-49, a ratings point equals roughly 1.3 million viewers.  PHOTOS: Behind the scenes of movies and TV "Resurrection," ABC's drama in which residents of Arcadia, Mo., are visited by dead relatives, earned a 2.0, down 9% week-to-week.

Bob Dylan's mercurial words on religion and spirituality have been examined for decades. Scholars, cultural critics and theologians have speculated with their pens, parsing the songwriter's syllables as if they were grains of sand. Entire books have focused on his spiritual explorations, beginning with his Jewish roots, his sometime embrace of evangelical Christianity and beyond. For all the words, though, few have argued its point more thoroughly - and with fewer academic buzzwords - than Brothers & Sisters, a choir of Los Angeles session singers who in 1969 gathered at Sound Recorders Studios in Hollywood under the direction of Lou Adler to record an album of the most uplifting and spiritually inclined works in Dylan's early canon.

Most network series fell in the ratings Sunday night as the fourth-season finale of AMC's "The Walking Dead" took a bite out of rivals' viewership. CBS' "The Good Wife," however, surged after last week's big plot twist.  "Resurrection," ABC's high-rated freshman drama, drew 8.2 million viewers and a rating of 2.3 among advertiser-desired 18- to 49-year-olds, according to early numbers from Nielsen. Compared with last week's episode, "Resurrection" posted an 8% decline in the key demographic.

LOS ALGODONES, Mexico - The mighty Colorado River, which over millenniums has carved the Grand Canyon, does an unusual thing when it gets south of the Arizona-Mexico border. It dies. The Morelos Dam - sitting on the international boundary - serves as its headstone, diverting nearly all of the river water into an aqueduct that serves agriculture as well as homes in Tijuana. South of the dam, the river channel travels about 75 miles to the Gulf of California. Except when filled by rains, the channel is bone dry. But starting Sunday, the river will flow again, part of an unprecedented experiment by U.S. and Mexican officials.

It's a point of pride for Samuel L. Jackson that if you list every film in which he has starred or appeared and add up their box-office receipts, the collective total would be higher than any other on-screen actor in history. That might be some arcane career calculus, but it does speak to the 60-year-old actor's crowded schedule and crowd-pleasing sensibility. On a recent afternoon, talking about his varied pursuits, Jackson began a sentence with, "In my spare time . . .

"Resurrection" posted strong ratings for ABC in its second episode, according to early numbers from Nielsen. Sunday's installment of the new drama, which follows residents of Arcadia, Mo., whose dead loved ones return, drew 10.8 million viewers on average. While that's down from the series premiere, which hooked 13.3 million people, it remained the top Sunday night show on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox in the key 18-to-49 demographic. In that advertiser-preferred age group, "Resurrection" garnered a rating of 3.0, down about 20% from the big opener.  In 18-to-49, a ratings point equals roughly 1.3 million people.  Ratings for that other back-from-the-dead drama, AMC's "The Walking Dead," won't be available until later Monday, but the show has been averaging around 13 million viewers in recent episodes.  PHOTOS: Behind the scenes of movies and TV On NBC, the new 10 p.m. thriller "Crisis" premiered with 6.5 million viewers and a 1.6 among 18-to-49-year-olds, matching the rating for last year's April premiere of "Hannibal.

"Le Week-End" is a sour and misanthropic film masquerading as an honest and sensitive romance. A painful and unremittingly bleak look at a difficult marriage, it wants us to sit through a range of domestic horrors without offering much of anything as a reward. This is especially disheartening because on an abstract level the film's participants on both sides of the camera are talented individuals with strong resumes. Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan, who star as the unhappy couple, are two of Britain's top actors.
