Series Summary
Jacob, an 8-year-old American, wakes up in a rural Chinese province, with no idea how he got there. When Jacob recalls that he is from Arcadia, Mo., an immigration agent takes him home to an elderly couple -- who lost their son Jacob when he drowned more than 30 years ago. Despite their changed appearance, Jacob recognizes his mother and father. As those closest to the family try to unravel the mystery, the boy claiming to be the former Jacob reveals secrets about his death that no one else could know -- secrets that the sheriff's daughter decides to investigate.

  • Resurrection subverts expectations by sidestepping the creepy and macabre--although there are layers of mysteries and secrets in the small town of Arcadia, Missouri--and dwelling in a more bucolic and even tear-jerking manner on the spiritual and societal ramifications of this apparent miracle. show more

  • It's a sentimental show to be sure but it's almost refreshingly straightforward in its sentimentality and there's something heartbreaking in the performances of Kurtwood Smith and Frances Fisher as a couple who lost their son 30 years ago but now have to deal with his return. show more

  • The dialogue doubles as patronizing directives of what we’re supposed to be thinking, carefully dictating Resurrection’s themes. show more
