The 10 Most Explicit Shows Of 2014 image
While some people obviously have severe problems with nudity and violence on television, I revel in that kind of stuff. But it was still no easy task to put together the 10 most explicit TV series of 2014, because some of these shows’ filters seem to either be absent or clogged with hair and viscera. What a year, though.

The Leftovers Is Making Some Big Changes In Season 2, Get The Details image
Season 2 isn’t expected to begin airing until the summer of 2015, so it could be some time before the entire new season totally comes together. The show is currently figuring out where it will go during the next set of episodes, and HBO’s drama recently decided to make some big changes for Season 2.

The Leftovers Finale Watch: Mapleton's Up In Flames As The Guilty Remnant Do The Unthinkable image
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.

The Leftovers Watch: Odd Connections And Answers Abound In The Garveys At Their Best image
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,

The Leftovers Watch: Answers! Questions! Sadness! Cairo! image
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?

The Leftovers Renewed For Another Season Of Happiness-Pummeling Mysteries image
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.

The Leftovers Watch: Like Insane Father Like Insane Son In Solace For Tired Feet image
“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.

The Leftovers Watch: Nora Grieves In Strange Ways For Another Character Study Episode image
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.

The Leftovers Watch: Gladys Is A Sadistic Conundrum Of Cults And White Shirts image
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)

The Leftovers Watch: A Very Special Christmas Episode image
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.

The Leftovers Watch: Christopher Eccleston Loses At Life In Two Boats And A Helicopter  image
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.

The Leftovers Watch: Penguin One, Us Zero May Make You Crazy Or Sane Or Both image
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?

The Leftovers Trailer Previews The Dark, Fiery And Dramatic Weeks Ahead image
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.

The Leftovers Series Premiere: Two Parts Seething Drama, One Part WTF Is This image
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 Leftovers New Trailer Reveals The Sounds Of Silence image
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.
