Bulletproof vests, hugs from holy men, tattoo's to cover up.
29 July 2020 | by dawidjagusiakSee all my reviews

Just watched the entire show (all 3 seasons) and it surely was a rollercoaster. There were a lot of moments and even entire episodes where I was getting annoyed with it. Completely abandoned the show after watching first few episodes of season 2, where the plot starts to become supernatural. I really enjoyed realism of the first season - people trying to deal with something they cannot logically explain.

I picked the show up where I left it after about a year as it still left me curious about the ending. Did it deliver? Yes, but if you are a viewer that expect all the answers by the end you will be disappointed. On the other hand if you treat it with a grain of salt it and let it disappoint you every now and then it will deliver. "The Leftovers" is more of a poetic, psychological drama than a sci-fi thriller and the most poignant scenes in this series involve people sitting down and talking to each other.
