Next level. Every scene packed with esoteric symbolism.
8 June 2018 | by sclafunkSee all my reviews

This show is about the uncertainty of life. I can't even put into words how amazing it is. If you like cerebral storytelling with layers upon layers to dissect and discuss, this is for you. The acting and writing are some of the best to ever grace a screen. The first season, while great, is definitely a little heavy but stick with it Bc 2-3 are the peak of the golden age of television. Season 2 ep 8 is straight up the best hour I've ever spent in front of a tv in my life. If you don't like to think, you won't enjoy this show. If spirituality and the occult scare you you won't like this show. If you don't like being challenged and assumed to be intelligent by your storytelling, you won't like this. Regardless. You have to respect what was done here, every single Facet of the leftovers is done with passion and mastery, from the acting to the sound to the crew. One of the singular best and most unique television series of all time.
