The Leftovers: International Assassin

the-leftovers-season-2

Wow, if the show had been this consistent last season, I would have actually been looking forward to the new season before it started airing. Not that there weren’t good episodes in the first season, but they seemed to alternate it between great and meh. Now we have one great episode after another. Much to […]

The Leftovers: A Most Glowerful Fadversary

the-leftovers-season-2

Talk about going out on a bang! I was worried this episode wouldn’t be able to hold up after last week, but it might have been even better. It was focused and stuff happened! Nora is gone, and she left Kevin handcuffed to the bed. One thing that makes this episode great is that you […]

The Leftovers Recap: Lens-y and Carl

the-leftovers-season-2

Worst episode of the season so far…. is the opposite of how I feel about this episode! With possibly one exception that I’ll get to later, every part of this episode found the balance between mystery, answers, and watching how people cope with the unknown. Our episode begins with everyone’s favorite character, Scientist You’ve Never Seen […]

But before that, we see Nora earlier in the night when Evie disappeared. She is understandably concerned and has a sort of meltdown. The best […]

Apparently, Laurie has recruited her Son Whose Name I Should Probably Look Up At Some Point to go undercover in Guilty Remnant sects and find people who are doubting it to deprogram. Laurie seems to be getting a bit of an ego boost from all of […]

The Leftovers: Baby Jesus, Divorce, and More!

theleftovers

This episode represents a slight drop in quality from the last two. It’s not bad, but it feels slightly less coherent and well-made than previous episodes. We focus on three or four sets of characters. Chief Justin Theroux is served divorce papers by Laurie and tasked with finding the stolen baby Jesus from the town Nativity […]

The Leftovers: Episode Three Recap Attack!

leftoversEp3

In this episode of Orange is the New Leftovers, we finally get to see Matthew the Priest’s flashback! Or, reverend or whatever. He’s married, so he can’t be a Catholic priest, right? I don’t know about these things for sure. Feel free to condescend to me in the comments. Anyway, the episode begins with Matt […]
