Just in case you missed the pilot episode of HBO's new series The Leftovers last night, you can now watch it in its entirely online right now. The show is based on the book by series co-producer Tom Perrotta, and Damon Lindelof (LOST) is the man who brought it to life for the cable network.
I thought the first episode was great! It stars Justin Theroux, who gave an incredible performance. I'm already hooked on the show, and I can't wait for next week's episode. Here's a description of the story:
When 2% of the world’s population abruptly disappears without explanation, the world struggles to come to terms with what happened. Three years later, the HBO drama series, ‘The Leftovers’ is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut.
Based on the bestselling novel by Tom Perrotta, ‘The Leftovers’ follows Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), a father of two and the chief of police in a small New York suburb, as he tries to maintain some semblance of normalcy when the notion no longer applies. Created by ‘Lost’ co-creator Damon Lindelof and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta, the series is executive produced by Lindelof, Perrotta and ‘Friday Night Lights’ executive producers Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey. Lindelof serves as the series showrunner.
Check out the first episode and let us know if it's a series that you'll keep watching.
