I can’t imagine anyone expected “The Prodigal Son Returns” to be a marathon of joyful surface conversations, and it was indeed yet another exercise in uncharacteristically enjoyable drama eked out through surreality, violence and questionable coincidences. Just like your grandmother used to make.
Choosing not to progress the sobering events at the end of last week’s episode, The Leftovers instead chooses to finally clue viewers into the events of the days prior to the Sudden Departure that led the series premiere. And I guess it’s no surprise that things weren’t completely hunky dory back then, either,
What can possibly happen to Kevin next week? Will he finally read the National Geographic that had Cairo on the cover, perhaps stumbling upon a key to a lock to a hint of a ghost of a clue as to what is happening to him?
We hope you have enough anti-depressants to last you through the end of 2015, because HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo has announced that the still-airing drama The Leftovers has been renewed for Season 2.
“Solace for Tired Feet” is an episode that is all about the connections between fathers and sons. Not in a universal sense, but very specifically how all three of the Garvey boys’ are linked together, whether it’s mentally or physically.
It makes sense that, in an episode focused almost completely on one character’s connection with grief, HBO’s The Leftovers has finally delivered an installment that didn’t make suicide feel like a satisfying episode chaser.
This week’s episode of The Leftovers should have come with pre-show suggestion that the first sequence only be watched by people who absolutely hate the Guilty Remnant, and in particular, the title character Gladys (and also probably sports, the government and all of Earth's living creatures)
Let’s be clear though; even for an episode revolving around the “kidnapping” of a Baby Jesus baby doll, “B.J. and the A.C.” is almost a sitcom as compared to the dourness radiating off of the previous three episodes. There is levity to be found here.
I was wondering if The Leftoverswould ever pull an episode off that resembled Damon Lindelof’s work on Lost, and this episode will probably come as close as any, though it’s far more singular in focus and much stranger from moment to moment than Lost ever was.
Another week of HBO’s The Leftovers, another week of me staring at my television as if it’s a malfunctioning piece of random technology. After last week’s premiere, I naively assumed that things would become normal in Mapleton, New York, despite reading other reviewers saying that it wouldn’t. I’m an optimist when it doesn’t count, what can I say?
If you thought the premiere of HBO's The Leftovers was dark and/or weird, take a look at the preview above, which shows what's coming up in the weeks ahead. Things are apparently about to get darker and weirder. And there will be lots of different kinds of fire. Building fire. Cremation fire. Feet fire. Finger-burning fire. All kinds of fire. Also Penguins.
Here is where I’d usually stick a warning about spoilers, but let’s be honest here. Given the way information is barely delivered by HBO’s newest drama The Leftovers, I don’t think I could spoil anything even if I tried.
The latest preview for HBO's series adaptation of Tom Perrotta's The Leftovers draws a bit from Simon and Garfunkel in the form of "Sounds of Silence" as the song behind the video. The new trailer begins with a prayer. It's a prayer that not everyone seems to be interested in participating in.
"I've been having this dream. It's the same one, over and over. It's about my son. He says to me, 'We're gone, Daddy, and all the people who stayed, they're asleep.' Time to wake up now." Following up on the intense and disturbing new trailer for Tom Perrotta and Damon Lindelof's upcoming new series The Leftovers...
As promised, HBO has released the first full trailer for Tom Perrotta and Damon Lindelof's new series The Leftovers ahead of tonight's episode of Game of Thrones. The two minute and forty second spot begins with a chilling scene, as a mother's crying baby disappears in an instant from its car seat. A glimpse of the chaos around her indicates that the infant isn't the only person to vanish into thin air. And this sets the scene for HBO's new drama, The Leftovers.
