    The Leftovers, to me, seems like it should be a short series at best. Of course I'll watch it, but I'm convinced it'll get old fast.

Surprising amount of, what appears to be sexual content, considering, and forgive me if I am mistaken, the books this is based on are on the subtle Christian fiction side***. I would tune in, at least for a while...I think it may be worth your time.


    ***sorry, was thinking of the Left Behind series.(edit)
    I fully plan on watching...and hopefully I end up pleasantly surprised. For some reason Lindeloff just seems like he's projecting as the M. Night of Exec Producers.

    Well, no 2 ways around it. True Blood is gawdawful. Almost spectacularly so. I...just...don't...care about anyone on this show and I would like them all to die. Eric has the hiv(errrrrr VampC or whatever), Jason is finally gonna go bawls deep, what is it with vampires where they ALWAYS have to be gay? And Anna Paquin couldn't act on a telenovella. Just horrible. Come back Dexter, all is forgiven. TB is waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy worse.

    Leftovers. First of all, the animal violence, sorry, but it almost turned me away. Kill all the people you want, but a dog gets headshot and I am halfway to the door. Yes, I know it's fake, just don't care to see. Ok, that being said, this show is gonna be good. Not sure if it is a mini-series(which I have read), but I hope it is, because this should have a finite number of episodes. The performances across the board are terrific. The one thing that really sold it was the music. Man, heavy heavy stuff. And that may turn some folks away. Looks like it will be terribly bleak...with very little to offer otherwise. I think a lot of people will give up on this because people tend to have a tolerance for how much suffering they can witness. This show seems to have bountiful amounts with a lot more to come. To be honest, I care very little about what happened to the what? 4% of the population that got vanished. In life you rarely get answers, but as with LOST, a lot of people need concrete reveals...so once again, if you think this isn't for you, you may want to jump off now. This and Rectify are two of the more fascinating shows about loss and grief that I have ever seen. I hope this show can expand on the promise of the pilot.

    Oh, I forgot to mention Tara on the cross with an albino boa constrictor wrapped around her, muttering in tongues while the 'actress' who plays her mother makes Nic Cage on a bender, at his absolute zenith of overacting, seem like a piker. This show is a giant F U to anyone who ever had any feelings towards it.

    I don't even know what's going on with True Blood, but I've invested so much time watching it that now I feel like I have to stick it out. Which is exactly how I felt about Dexter. BUT WHY YOU GOTTA DO ERIC LIKE THAT, WRITERS?! him and Pam are the only characters I sort of care about at this point.

    that opening sex scene was literally the only enjoyable thing about that episode (sorry dudes)

    Yeah, I made sure my blinds were closed during that...cause I didn't want my neighbors thinking I was watching gay porn. Which probably has better writing than this stoopid show. I actually wouldn't want my neighbors seeing me watching True Blood now that I think about it.
