    Has anyone watched this? It's from one of the creators of Lost. Rifled through it over the past week or so and it's incredible. The second season might be the best season of TV that I've ever seen.

    "Three years after the simultaneous disappearance of 2% of the global population, a group of people from Mapleton, New York struggle to continue their lives while they cope with loss and the tragedy of the unexplained nature of the event." (IMDB)

    The first season is great, the second even better and it's in a new location with some new characters. There's a lot of mysteries throughout both seasons, and unlike Lost, it actually answers a lot of them. Such a hard show to describe...just watch it.

    Season 3 started last Sunday in America, but isn't airing over here until July apparently. Watched the first episode last night on a stream. Fantastic as always.

    I urge all you cants to watch this.

    Not on Netflix mate. It's on Amazon Video but you need to pay for it. If you fancy watching it online I can give you a link.

    @Pinstripe you up to date with it?

    Series finale aired last night. Couldn't have hoped for a better ending. Think it's just topped Game of Thrones for me....something I thought I'd never say.

    Justin Theroux and Carrie * should win every award under the sun for their performances.

    Finished the first season last night. What a show. A bit slow to start but you can’t turn it off.

    Finale was so * up but thought it was incredible. Watched the first couple of episodes of season 2 today and thought they were excellent as well.

    Buzzing to see Regina King in this.

    Good man.

    Going to watch it again in the near future. It's an underappreciated masterpiece. It probably has the best series finale I've ever seen as well.

    A slow burner but it’s outstanding so far.
    Season 1 finale was immense.

    Can see why HBO have given Lindelof the keys to Watchmen.

    Rattled through more of this yesterday. Should finish the second season tonight.


    S2 Ep8: International Assassin might be my favourite episode of any tv show.

    Absolutely unreal.

    That’s about when it started to get really into it for me.

    Think S2 is even better in all honesty, only the season finale left.

    That's what's so good about The Leftovers. It's mental but it's just so addictive.:giggle1:

    I'd say season 2 is the best, then 3 and then 1.
