I love how Leftovers plays with faith itself, asking ourselves all the time: are we innerly fools with the tendency to ruin everything over and over again? The stoning scene will never leave my mind, so hurtful - so painful. I wish TV was more like this.
"The Leftovers" is the true heir of "The Sopranos", "Six Feet Under", "The Wire" and other shows that turned HBO into the powerhouse of prestige-TV. The fact that it went so under the radar while 98% percent of the world is fascinated with dragons is really a shame. A wondrous experience with an unbelievable cast, out-of-this-world writing and beautiful cinematography.
WOW. The first season is good TV as the standard goes, season two starts off a little slow before turning into one of the most interesting story's I've ever seen on TV, and season 3 is pure fucking A grade storytelling throughout. The cast are Amazing. I had no idea Theroux was that great (I am starting to get real jealous of that family's talent). And Carrie Coon is incredible too. I can't recommend this season more
