The Leftovers- HBO

Anyone else watching this show? 3 episodes in and I'm really liking it. Last night's episode with the focus on just the church guy was really good. And those people in that cult or whatever it is are very interesting....no talking, wearing white, and constantly smoking cigarettes.

I'm not familiar with the book. Anyone know if they are sticking to that story or making this something completely different?

    Watched episode 1 and it didn't grab me. Might still give it another chance but not sure.

    last nights episode revolving around the preacher man was real twilight-zoneish.

    Oh and not nearly enough of Liv Tyler.

    Yeah, she does kinda look like her now that I think of it.

    Plus, I don't think it's possible for any character to be as annoying as Dana...one of the worst ever!

    I agree, not sure it has enough to last. I like the show, but it is super depressing

    Yeah, it's kinda a downer, but still very interesting. I also read that the ratings haven't been that good so who knows if this will even be back for a 2nd season.

  • Bathgate66Bathgate66 Posts: 15,812
