  • At the risk of sounding dumb, to me what was interesting was that people were eating bread before agriculture.   Somehow I thought it was the other way around.    I thought once people settled down and had agriculture, then they developed things lik…
  • Anyone here a fan of "ologies" by Alie Ward?   It has BaldMove grade cussing (which I don't think it's common for a science podcast).   She interviews different scientists/doctors (like a Rhinologist to talk about noses, or a Lepidopterologist to ta…
  • I also felt a bit odd about seeing Black Panther, Spiderman, Dr Strange, the Guardians disappear, but I suppose what they are doing is showing us an alternate ending to validate the sacrifice of the folks that will probably permanently die on the ne…
  • 100% complete!   Even at 100% there is a locked character that can only be unlocked once season 2 is released.
  • Got to 96.5% complete.   When you collect all 6 VHS tapes in the game, you can take them to the movie theater and get a trailer for season 2
  • I'm impressed that they've been able to bring the same actors back to reprise their earlier roles. We haven't seen the lady with the baby in the car since the final scene of episode 1 of the entire series and I immediately recognized her. Yeah. Ca…
  • When I watched it again... the conversations between Laurie and Nora at the cliff and Laurie and Kevin at the end felt a lot deeper. "Same time next week?" "You're on." (The expression on laurie's face...). "I'm not scared" "then I'm not scare…
  • @A_Ron_Hubbard  On the podcast you were wondering why Nora doesn't seem concerned about wanting to see her husband again.   Nora has a good reason not to want to see him; he was cheating on her with her kid's teacher.
  • Great news! I NEED THE HAMMER! Some thoughts I've had that would be interesting if done well, but boy, terrible if done wrong: how does the sudden departure affect religions outside of Christianity? For instance How does the sudden departure af…
  • @ghm3 : good call on no action from the government in Jarden during the whole GR take over of the bridge and after math at Jarden. Perhaps you could bring up the fact that it was October 14th and so their attention could have been somewhere else,…
  • Nora vs Erika on this last episode: Nora wasn't a lens. She was right (although she was more "hopping" and didn't know for sure) about the girls disappearance not to have been caused by a departure (cousin Larry's fake departure being a foreshadow…
  • What an amazing season and season finale. We now know Matt didn't rape Mary. Although Mary didn't know about the baby (so Mary "telling" Matt about having to go back into town to save the baby wasn't real?). We know Evie gave John a cricket. No…
  • Ratings for this week: After posting two consecutive weeks of improvement, HBO’s “The Leftovers” dipped in adults 18-49 and total viewership this week. Sunday’s episode drew a 0.28 adults 18-49 rating and 610,000 total viewers. The numbers trail t…
  • I suspect Virgil's and Michael's actions are tied to the disappearance of the girls, but I'm not sure how. Are they trying to frame Kevin for the girls' disappearance? Also, I suppose if John was molested by Virgil, you can see how he wouldn't…
  • tom_g and @brewsevelt I'm on the same boat too (re: TWD).   I used to watch TWD, then the leftovers.   Now I watch TWD right after the leftovers.   With this last episode, however, I think I should have watched the leftovers a second time, and save …
  • @MattSomething And more importantly, what size shoe box do you need?  
  • @Reni  One thing that has not been mentioned, aside from the fact that yes dealing with someone with mental disabilities is challenging enough, not to mention having to take care of a baby and a person in a vegetative state, is the fact that Kevin d…
  • Laurie's explanation of Patti was so good. Jill's conversations with Kevin at the house, and her conversation with Michael at the church were also amazing... This cast is just so good. I'm guessing that Nora is at Matt's old place by the churc…
  • Here is a couple of Regina King interviews about this episode: -------------------------------------- http://www.vulture.com/2015/11/regina-king-leftovers-carrie-coon.html That scene between you and Nora is one of the most terrifying moments of T…
  • This is crazy for a show this good, but: This week’s broadcast, which was the sixth of the second season, drew a 0.33 adults 18-49 rating with 636,000 total viewers. Last week’s episode, which itself enjoyed weekly improvement in both categories, …
  • @Cory the night the girls disappeared we say a dog with a leash running without its owner... So I assume people in Jarden have pets. One interesting thing to note however is that at the quarantine place they had a lot more pets than Kevin's dog.…
  • @ksa1001  Thanks!   Not sure how I missed that.   Of course Nora would pick a rock and throw it at them for what they did to Matt.   As for Erika, I wonder if Erika sensed Nora's dismissal of Evie disappearance as a "second departure," and more impo…
  • What was the deal with the rock?
  • @Reni I don't know how much Jill knows either (about Holy Wayne). Although Kevin finding out about Lily is going to have and effect on him, I imagine that when Nora finds out it would have some effect on her too. And now that Tom is claiming to h…
  • Episode 6 Lens: Looks like an Erika episode?   Sorry, I know not very insightful Episode 7 A Most Powerful Adversary: Matt vs John.  Or potentially Meg vs Laurie? Episode 8 International Assassin:  Although I don't want to leave Jarden for now, it m…
  • @A_Ron_Hubbard im sure you've been getting a lot of emails about this but season 1 of the leftovers (expect for the flashback episodes etc) takes place 3 years after the sudden departure, hence its been at least 3 years (and possibly more than a few…
  • @seang haha. Holding a bad of poo as evidence. Awesome. The one thing that makes me question whether Kevin knows Patti's husband's name is the fact that on season 1 Kevin had a crazy wall of pictures keeping track of the GR (I believe Lucy said …
  • Hey, some good news (sorta) about ratings: ... this week’s edition of the HBO drama posted a 0.28 adults 18-49 rating with 625,000 viewers. Both numbers top those of last week’s broadcast, which scored a 0.26 rating and a series low viewership tot…
  • @firewalker601 the other moment that made me wonder if Matt had any doubt about his experience with Mary was the scene at the hospital when the nurse asked Matt if there was "anything in her behavior to suggest a change?". It didn't look as though…
