The Leftovers is a deep drama, where the disappearance of roughly 2% of the world's population disappear. This one day event causes a universe of chaos that the show explores. Exploring faith, family, relationships, and the effects of uncertainty, The Leftovers raises many thought provoking questions. Featuring a talented ensemble cast, and original mutli-perspective storytelling, this show is one of the very best on television!

Just thinking about the Leftovers gives me all sorts of chills.
How would you react to incomprehensible happenings beyond your control?

The ambiguity of it all hits you so hard, you are numb with disbelief.
The multi-perspective performances of the cast make you believe in the inexplicable craziness, fear, agony and madness of the people and world as a whole. It makes you question their sanity!
While, the Guilty Remnant (the cult in the show) just go too far with their "never forget" antics. Its inconceivable, frantic & haunting - all at the same time.

One of the greatest (& yet under-watched) shows in the history of the TV industry. This story will persist on your mind.
It is a tough show to watch but only because its suppose to be one (and a brilliant one at that).

Season 2 is awesome so far! I found the first season so underwhelming that Ii didn't bother to review this show last year. But now I'm two episodes into season 2 and it is like a completely different show...in a good way.
So if you are just starting to watch this show and struggling through the first season, just know that there is a payoff in that the show improves significantly in season 2.

A bit slow at times. However this is one of the only shows that has really got to me and made me think about things after I've finished watching it.

Don't understand why people are saying things like slow paced and hard to watch.
This is one of the few good shows around.
My only guess is its the same people who have a problem with Game of Thrones.
They cant follow an intricate story line...
