The Leftovers
Okay this show is amazing! Its already 3 episodes in and I'm A) confused which isn't bad but Dirol very amused. Its the first HBO show besides Sex and the City that I'm really getting into. You guys should watch it! Smile
I love it so far!!! Very melancholic... confusing (obviously from the creators of LOST lol)... and intriguing! Lots of characters and storylines that all intertwine with one another. It's definitely not for some (pretty slow pace and little is revealed about anything), but I love it! Excited to see where it goes! (plus Justin Theroux is gorgeous)

They all have a story and you wanna know more about them.
Is anyone else scared that this show will go nowhere, much like Lost the last few seasons? I'm still watching and I like what I see, although at times it feels like we are treading water. I still need to watch Sunday's episode. Hopefully there is a clear reason to watch (i.e. semblance of a linear plot) in the near future. The cast is great and the acting is amazing, but overall it feels empty. Like it's missing something.
I am now totally addicted to this show and even watched the last episode twice. I see Lost level disappointment in my near future! ;)
Great. Another book and subsequent series to add to my list... Thank God I bought a Nook.

I was half asleep and was pretty confused as well. BUT DAMN Justin Theroux...that is all.
Justin Theroux... he is perfect. D-I-L-F. Step aside Aniston..
If it wasn't for [URL="http://www.reddit.com/r/TheLeftovers"]this subreddit[/URL], I'd be in the dark and still lost. I don't read the spoilers, but I do read the episode discussions and there is so much there I was missing - that it totally changed how I view the show.

What's with the shirts?!? Uuugh, and as a former smoker, damn if that GR doesn't make me want to SMOKE A DAMN CIGARETTE. (Don't worry B, I won't, but STILL) :/
Patti was my favorite. She spoke truth. I'm sad she killed her self. Meg is also turning into a little firecracker and I love it. Also, screw Nora! I don't like her. After she told that women to shoot her I was just in complete shock. Nora's episode was very powerful though and showed just how people handle grief differently. At least that's what I took from it. I'm kinda starting to get the show, but there are still so many holes and unanswered questions and peoples names I forget, but I'm hooked. I don't want it to end next week. I just hope it gets a season 2!

I really liked this last episode, poignant as it was. Even though it was obvious from the start that it was a flashback, it actually didn't occur to me that we'd be getting a glimpse into exactly what was going on right up until [I]the exact moment[/I] of the departure. It really hammered home how completely bizarre and unexpected it was, and it made me able to relate to some of the characters more. I thought the acting was really spot-on. It's amazing what a difference braces and a higher voice makes for Jill. She seemed completely different. Laurie's baby presumably disappearing from the womb was pretty creepy. It almost makes it a little bit easier to understand why she is the way she is now. Oh! And also, when Laurie was on her way to her Dr. appt, and she was next to the woman with the screaming baby in her backseat at the stop light....Was that the same woman from the premiere?? I need to go find out. The timing seems to be right. And **** you Kevin for sleeping with that random Jolene. I hate cheaters and now I kind of hate you :mad-new:
Yes that was the same woman!! She was also in the 3rd episode about the priest (he was in the car accident that happens on the street behind her) I loved this episode!!! Was really hoping we'd get some flashbacks.. and they give us a full episode flashback!? awesome!!! Loved seeing how everyone interacted before the event... their personalities, their appearances, their family dramas pre-departure... it was all very eye opening and interesting. And I totally shed a tear when everyone disappeared... Nora's family, Laurie's baby, Kevin's mistress, Tommy & Jill's science group... it was crazy! (btw can i just say how much I love the score they came up with for the show... they play it non-stop but i never get tired of hearing it haha)

Sooo, I did stay up last night to watch it "live". I think I need to watch it again before I can give a detailed assesment. Having said that, I thought it was good, and in the end, I was happy. I'm really looking forward to season 2, and it's going to be a long year....  Oh! And shoutout to the orchestral Metallica, that was song was just....perfect.

Ok...has NO ONE else watched the finale yet?? Or....is everyone so disappointed they've got nothing to say?!
I watched it!! and I loved it!! hahaha finally a somewhat glimmer of hope after a very long depressing season haha... the whole "making them remember" stint was insaneeeee.... couldn't believe my eyes. And I'm assuming his wish was to have his family back... well I guess two things came true: everyones back in town together, and it looks as if he may be starting a new family. crazy!! can't wait to see where it leads in the second season (apparently the finale is just like the end of the book.. so whatever happens next is entirely up in the air)

The book is incredibly short, so I'm very interested to see where they go with it. True Blood and Game of Thrones both had/have plenty of source material, yet went their own directions on several occasions (more so in the case of the former). I don't see this having any significant longevity, but if handled right, 2 or 3 more solid seasons. I'm an idiot and just realized I have access to HBO GO (I rarely watch live TV anymore), so I'll definitely get caught up on this!

  I was so excited when I heard this! I thought the book was a series, but I'm glad they can now go off in whatever direction they want to. I really want Kevin to be happy. I'm glad it seems he got his daughter back, and I'm glad that it looks like Nora may be staying now. She's one of my favorite characters, and I was really bummed when I thought she was going to leave.  The ONLY thing I didn't like out of the whole episode, was the dream sequence. One, because they tricked me, and I was starting to get pissed. And two, because it didn't seem to add anything to the story, and was therefore a waste of 7minutes or so.  Other than that, REALLY like this show, and I cannot wait to see more Justin Theroux , er, Kevin, in ill-fitting sweatpants.
