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.

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.

"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.

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.

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 . . .

"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.

"The Trip to Bountiful. "  There are few roles that allow women of a certain age to display the symphonic skill it takes a lifetime to acquire, and fewer still that exist outside the realm of high-drama one-woman shows. But there is Horton Foote's lovely and lyrical tale of Carrie Watts, a woman obstinately battling the restrictions of age and dependency to return to visit her hometown of Bountiful once more before she dies. Written in 1953 as a teleplay, "The Trip to Bountiful" originally starred Lillian Gish.

San Diego County Clerk Ernest J.

Dronenburg said in a statement Friday that he decided to withdraw so the California Supreme Court could reach a speedy decision in the challenge by ProtectMarriage, the sponsors of Proposition 8.

A smash hit on its recent release in China, "Painted Skin: The Resurrection" offers an over-the-top mix of fantasy, adventure and romance that plays as a fussy, convoluted mess.

The film, a sequel to 2008's "Painted Skin," is directed by Wuershan, who also made the recent "The Butcher, the Chef and the Swordsman.

Maybe the Valley turned younger and hipper, diving headlong into the "retro" fad. Maybe it was a matter of the beleaguered masses, weary from another year of recession and crime, turning to escapist nostalgia. Or maybe we just ran out of ideas. Either way, for arts and leisure, old was new in 1993. How else to explain the return of crooners and roller-skating, of harmonica blues and the Texas two-step?

It's the musical that refuses to go away. "Rebecca," based on the Daphne Du Maurier novel, has died multiple deaths on Broadway before ever opening and it now looks like producers are trying one more time to bring the show to New York. A report in Playbill this week quoted producer Ben Sprecher on his intention to bring "Rebecca" to Broadway in 2014. A separate report in the Austrian press this week stated that the owner of the show's rights - Vereinigten Bühnen Wien - had extended its license agreement with the American producers until 2014.
