ABC’s Resurrection (Sundays, 9/8C) has a set up that reminds of Sundance TV’s brilliant The Returned. A young boy wakes in a Chinese rice paddy and is returned to his home in Arcadia, Missouri – thirty-two years after he died. His return baffles everyone – from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent who has taken him home to his best parents and best friend.
Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (Fox, Sundays, 9/8C) is, essentially, a reboot of the PBS series in which Carl Sagan gave millions of viewers an understanding of science and what it means for us in the real world. The new series, written by Ann Druyan – who was part of the original series more than thirty years ago – has, potentially, a much larger opportunity to have an impact thanks to Seth MacFarlane (yes, the Family Guy guy) and host, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson (1.7 million Twitter followers!).
