Damon Lindelof and Tom Perotta’s The Leftovers is back on HBO for its final eight episode long season.

REVIEW: The Leftovers – Season Two (2015)

The following is a review of the second season of The Leftovers – Created by Damon Lindelof & Tom Perotta

After a terrific and underrated first season, the writers of The Leftovers decided to open their second season with a change of scenery. First, a supremely odd prologue that had me scratching my head and made me wonder if I was watching a different show. It’s a sequence that manages to foreshadow a lot of the events of the second season, but it was an odd way to open a season nonetheless.

Then, after the prologue ended, Axis Mundi – the first episode of the season – becomes a point of view-episode from the perspective of a family from Jarden, Texas — a town that lost zero people during the ‘Sudden Departure.’ We soon learn that these people are Kevin (played by Justin Theroux), Nora (played by Carrie Coon), and Jill’s (played by Margaret Qualley) new neighbors.

REVIEW: The Leftovers – Season One (2014)

The following is a season review of the first season of The Leftovers – Created by Damon Lindelof & Tom Perotta

Back in 2014, HBO released the first season of Tom Perotta and Damon Lindelof’s show about the global loss of 140 million people. The show was called The Leftovers and it was based on co-creator Tom Perotta’s novel of the same name.

The first season of the show takes place three years after the global loss and it is largely focused on the trials and tribulations of the Garvey family, which has been torn apart following the ‘Sudden Departure.’ But while plenty key characters lost key members of their family, the show makes clear that not all loss is related directly to the ‘Sudden Departure.’ Continue reading “REVIEW: The Leftovers – Season One (2014)”
