** Of course, many also note that there are perfectly reasonable explanations why the characters acted those way- it's just that they don't follow the cold logic of someone who's outside the situation.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance : The sex scene int the first episode, between young Léna and Frederic caused some major [[{{Squick}} squick]] outside of France, regarding their age. The character is supposed to be 14, but looks much younger. That's why the twins will apparently get [[AgeLift age-lifted]] in the American remake.


** Also meta version : is the show getting a American (by A&E) and a British remake (by Paul Abott) a good thing or not ? Some people say yes because it means the show is getting international fame, will bring money, and will be more enjoyable for foreign viewer unfamiliar with th "Frenchness" of the show, who couldn't relate to the original, and also an opportunity to do better because of the bigger budget. But for other, it's the opposite : the remake will overshadow the original which means it will be lost and forgotten instead of famous, it will make another 3 tv shows about the same subjet who was already exploited enough those days (World War Z, Resurrection, In The Flesh...), and if the remake is a fail, no one will watch or broadcast the original.

* IdiotPlot: By the end of the first season, though revenants have been seen by a great many people [[spoiler: including the police]], nobody has attempted [[spoiler: to do a serious medical examination of one]] or [[spoiler: to notify the outside world of their existence]]. Other specific examples: not placing a camera in [[spoiler: the tunnel]]; not communicating in any meaningful way with [[spoiler: the horde]]; not turning [[spoiler: Victor]] over to the police [[spoiler: when he appeared to be a normal (if quiet) lost child, presumably with distraught parents somewhere]]; not warning the town of [[spoiler: an incoming long-term blackout]]. All decisions that should have been obvious to some or all of the people involved but [[IdiotBall somehow]] weren't, creating a lot of unnecessary mystery and suffering.
