Decided fans of the best show on TV HBO's The Leftovers should have their own thread. I know the timing isn't good, but better late than never...Opinions about last Sunday's penultimate episode?
Liv Tyler surprised me positively, I didn't think she had that in her. She was scary.Decided fans of the best show on TV HBO's The Leftovers should have their own thread. Opinions about last Sunday's penultimate episode?
This is the second season.Liv Tyler surprised me positively, I didn't think she had that in her. She was scary.
That said, I think the series peaked with the previous episode, International Assassin.
Last episode was good but I don't get Tom following her like a puppy. It really made no sense to me. I know you have to take a leap of faith with this series sometimes but still.
Probably when I finish it, I'll start over. This is the kind of series you can watch several times and get different details/interpretations.
This is the most exciting new series in many years for me :yeah:
I don't know. I agree with you that this worked well as a series finale (and I even cried a bit at the last scene -Spoiler- with Kevin seeing his whole family back at home) but on the other hand this is too good to never come back so I hope this is not the definite end[SPOILERS] I liked it overall. I'm glad they didn't do the banal predictable thing by blowing up the bridge. It's not that kind of show and it would have been lame to have carried through with that. I agree Demosthenes that the purgatory hotel repetition seemed a little lazy and uninspired but it didn't bother me too much and I did like the idea of Kevin having to sing Simon & Garfunkel to "get back".
It wasn't the greatest episode of the season, but in a way it seemed to be rebelling against this convention of the finale having to be mind-blowing. It was quiet but had a good happy ending that didn't seem forced.
As for a 3rd season half of me wants more of this, that there is nothing like the show and that there needs to be this kind of idiosyncrasy in the TV firmament. But on the other hand they wrapped it up quite nicely this season, Patti is gone, Kevin gets his family back, all of them, what story is there left to tell, I mean what impetus is left? I don't want an inferior regurgitation of previous themes, who wants to eat reheated Leftovers?

We admire and fully support Damon’s artistic vision and respect his decision to bring the show to its conclusion next season.”
I was going to watch S1 again, but truth be told it's a bit heavy-going, there is too much Guilty Remnant. The first season had fantastic episodes, of course, and it's mandatory if you haven't already seen it, but over-all it was just too grim for a re-watch. Season 2 got the balance right.God I love this show so much :hearts:
When S3 finishes I'm totally bingewatching S1 to S3. Season 2 was glorious
I sorta agree. S2 is flawless but S1, while has great peaks, can get a bit tiring with the GR plot.I was going to watch S1 again, but truth be told it's a bit heavy-going, there is too much Guilty Remnant.
