Trivia

In 2016, during an interview on National Publc Radio's "Fresh Air with Terry Gross", Christopher Eccleston told Gross that playing Reverend Matt Jamison on this show was one of several recent life experiences that had led him to stop identifying as an atheist: "I'm no longer sure now. I'd certainly made great play a number of years ago about my atheism. And things have changed in my life. And I know - I'm no longer so certain. I - so I guess I would have to say agnostic now....I had children....I lost my father. I watched him suffer through his dementia. I had my own crisis earlier in the year. I don't - life has happened to me, I would say - life. And maybe some of the issues in "The Leftovers", my relationship with Damon Lindelof, the showrunner - remember we had a - quite a discussion on faith. He claims that I said that - because Matt Jamison, in the novel on which the series is originally based, only appears for two pages. So Damon was very surprised that I was pursuing that role. But I pointed out to him that, you know, it's a great, dramatic character, an Episcopalian reverend who possibly was not taken in a Biblical rapture. It's just there. It's for the taking. But he claims that I said that the man's reaction to that would be to become more religious. I don't remember saying that. But that's what Damon claims. But we had a discussion about faith. And Damon said, look, I - that's a very difficult question to answer because I said, are you a believer? You know, and I find myself there now, really. I just feel that when I was stomping around saying I was an atheist, I was not thinking about it enough. I think I was - I mean, there is certainly a huge part of me that feels intense anger against organized religion. But I do feel, at the moment, a little more spiritually open to what may be religious beliefs." See more »

Goofs

While the series is set in Westchester County,NY, it is clear from the scenery and vegetation that it is not. This especially in long shots when the terrain is clearly that on area not in the Northeastern US. See more »

I LOVE this show!
28 July 2014 | by amerimama-50-477318See all my reviews

I will say that after watching the first episode I was on the fence about this series, but, now, after viewing 4-5 episodes, I am totally hooked and I think this is one of the most exciting new series from HBO in years. Justin Theroux is excellent in his role as the police chief (besides being extremely pleasant to look at!). I never realized he was such a great actor, but this role really stretches his ability. He has definitely not disappointed, running the full emotional gamut (father, husband, law enforcer) in his portrayal as Kevin Garvey. And the rest of the cast is great, too. This is must-see TV at its best, and I look forward to the new episode every Sunday. Bravo HBO, you have done it again!
