The Leftovers, Ep. 1.01, “Pilot,” calibrates an old story for major potential

30 June 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Leftovers, Season 1, Episode 1, “Pilot”

Written by Damon Lindelof & Tom Perrota

Directed by Peter Berg

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on HBO

The best thing about The Leftovers is its premise, and not because it’s really that ingenious, or cool. Its rapture-based concept is ground that has been covered before in other series and books, but the scale of it is just right here for nuanced material, the incident being big enough to be a personal catastrophe, yet small enough to keep it from being a global one (like say, all the males dying was in Y: The Last Man). With no rhyme or reason to who was picked, on top of a three-year gap from the event itself, what we’re left with instead of the typical action plot or mystery, is basically the perfect, world-wide existential crisis.

After all, how do you keep your head up and »

30 June 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Just in case you missed the pilot episode of HBO's new series The Leftovers last night, you can now watch it in its entirely online right now. The show is based on the book by series co-producer Tom Perrotta, and Damon Lindelof (Lost) is the man who brought it to life for the cable network.

I thought the first episode was great! It stars Justin Theroux, who gave an incredible performance. I'm already hooked on the show, and I can't wait for next week's episode. Here's a description of the story:

When 2% of the world’s population abruptly disappears without explanation, the world struggles to come to terms with what happened. Three years later, the HBO drama series, ‘The Leftovers’ is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut.

HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Opens to Lukewarm 1.8 Million Viewers

30 June 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “The Leftovers” premiered to 1.8 million viewers for its initial telecast on Sunday night, according to Nielsen estimates, putting it below the network’s other high-profile dramas over the last few years.

It didn’t necessarily have as strong a lead-in as HBO may have hoped, as “True Blood” drew 3.1 million viewers for its regular-timeslot airing on Sunday, down from a little over 4 million for its season premiere of the previous week.

HBO’s most recent drama premiere, “True Detective” in January, drew 2.33 million viewers for its regular-timeslot telecast. “The Newsroom” 2.14 million in June 2012, and “Game of Thrones” attracted 2.22 million in 2011.

Justin Theroux Jogging and Shirtless Are the Only Uplifting Things About The Leftovers

30 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

HBO's The Leftovers is not exactly a party: People are disappearing; there's a wacky cult causing problems; and teens are literally choking each other for fun. The whole show is one big Rapture bummer. But! There was one bright spot last night, and that was ... Justin Theroux's lack of clothing. Even when he's dressed, he looks naked. (Is it just me, or does the dude's cop uniform look like it's ten seconds away from being ripped off in an outtake from Magic Mike?) Here are the highlights from episode one:1. The jogging There's nothing else I really need to spell out here. 2. This part with the towel 3. Is that a Native American tattoo? 4. This cop uniform 5. Do cops wear aviators in real life? The Rapture never looked so good. Sorry. »

You Can Watch The First Episode Of HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ On Yahoo

30 June 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

It's fairly common for premium cable channels to release the first episode of a new show on YouTube. Now, HBO is extending that strategy to Yahoo. The Yahoo Screen platform is home to the first episode of The Leftovers, the new HBO series from Lost writer Damon Lindelof. The Leftovers centers on a small town three years after a unexplained event caused 2% of the world's population to disappear. Lindelof, whose post-Lost work has left much to be desired, has assembled a strong cast here; the stars of The Leftovers include Justin Theroux, Chistopher Eccleston, and Liv Tyler. HBO has previously hosted the first episodes of shows like Girls and Silicon Valley on YouTube (Its main competitor, Showtime, has also utilized a similar tactic.) With this strategy, the channel hopes that a taste of its high-quality programming will encourage viewers to sign up for HBO's premium service. Yahoo is perhaps »

The Leftovers Recap: Love, Loss, Cults and Chaos

30 June 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In a word: enrapturing. Premiering Sunday night, HBO's The Leftovers, about a small New York town in the aftermath of a global Rapture-like event that caused the sudden disappearance of two percent of the world's population, was possibly the most anticipated new show of the summer. While disturbing, the first episode did not disappoint. Reader warning: Plot spoilers ahead. The show opens with a frazzled young mother running errands with her crying baby. As she gets ready to pull out of the parking lot, the baby's wails stop, thanks to every mother's worst fear. The child's gone without a trace. »

Justin Theroux Talks about The Leftovers

30 June 2014 1:27 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

The Leftovers, HBO's new drama set a few years after 2 percent of the world's population disappears with no explanation.

"Although it's a show that's ostensibly about the Rapture, very quickly it moves away from that and sort of becomes kind of a meditation on grief, wanting and yearning, the splintering effect of a massive loss," The Leftovers star Justin Theroux told E! News at the premiere.

"It is about love," he said. "Everyone has an array of such genuinely human emotions in the piece, it wasn't that hard to relate to."

Theroux plays police chief Kevin Garvey in the drama from Lost's Damon Lindelof and novel writer Tom Perrotta. He said he never read the book before getting the script, but once he got the scripts he couldn't put it down. His character is central to the story and the actor has become the face of the series, appearing in the poster campaign. »
