So, I'm late to the party... The Leftovers

Recommended Posts

So yeah, I've always wanted to catch up on this show, and just recently, I've done just that.

I've got one more episode to go to complete the series, but wow, what a ride!

This is easily up there with GoT and Breaking Bad for my favorite show all time.

If you haven't watched it, do. If I had to sum it up, it is like Fight Club meets Stephen King, with a little bit of TWD in there.

It's so good. I only started it like last week. I would have been done right now if I wasn't old and could get through more than a couple episodes a night after we put the kids to bed.

First season - bad

Second season - best season of television ... ever

Third season - pretty good

With only one episode to go, I can agree that 2 and 3 are my favorite. First season isn't that bad to me, but I can see why people think that. Season 2 and season 1 are kind of night/day.

Watched it from the beginning and I still go back to watch some favorite episodes.

Really well written and the cast is great.

It's one of the best shows ever.   I hate more people didn't watch, but in a way, it kept it from getting bloated.   Three seasons felt "right".    This is one of the few series I WILL go back and rewatch.

Kevin is the man.

WATChed most of season 1, heard the creators had no intention of revealing what happened and I immediately dropped it.

 

i don’t need a good answer at all and yes I love a show about characters but not answering was unforgivable for me.

Season 1 follows the book. Season 2 and 3 are 100% new story made by the writers (the first season covered the entire book). And "what happened" doesn't matter at ALL in the confines of the plot.

It's not about the event.   It's about the people, and how we/them deal with things like death and living.   Watching the fantastic acting and whatnot you really realize that in the later two seasons.

If I had to guess what happened...

Some kind of wormhole opened up and pulled either the Leftovers or the departed (most likely the departed) into another parallel/copied universe.

I think it is kind of implied that when Nora went to the other side, everything was basically the same as it was on her original reality. She had to find that physicist to rebuild the machine to send her back, but she, IIRC, said something about things being a bit overgrown and way underpopulated, but that is because there were way less people in this reality.

One could also argue that even the known reality was just a part of the experience of perception to each of the individuals.

When Kevin died each time, he too was just going to another reality that some people move onto when they die. He just had the uncanny ability to be revived into his known reality afterward.

Awesome show, really up there with some of the recent greats like BrkBad and GoT.   International Assassin episode in season 2 was my favorite episode.
