4/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - I Live Here Now (TV Episode) Mary's awakening was a joy and Nora shielding Lily in the stampede was terrifying. So while the Big Event was a little bit of a letdown, the people were incredibly satisfying.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 92% The Leftovers: Season 2 - Ten Thirteen (TV Episode) All of my criticism aside, Liv Tyler's performance this week is stellar. Meg is deeply, decidedly scary, and her emotional hairpin turns are perfect.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - International Assassin (TV Episode) You could write a master's thesis on the sheer amount of metaphor used in this episode, then go back to get a PhD in whatever the hell it all actually means.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - A Most Powerful Adversary (TV Episode) The Leftovers explores how we live with the unknowable, and it's doing so with great characters and fantastic writing and across-the-board stellar performances.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - Lens (TV Episode) This might be my favorite episode of this season so far. Nora and Erika are fantastic characters, and Carrie Coon and Regina King play them to the hilt.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - No Room at the Inn (TV Episode) Matt really wants to believe that the world is good... He believes so firmly that he'll find redemption that I always find myself wanting to believe he will, too. Somehow.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - Orange Sticker (TV Episode) This season, for the first time, we're starting to deal with the larger questions: Was there a celestial Hand at work in the Departure? Is there a Plan?‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - Off Ramp (TV Episode) The writing is great and the acting is phenomenal; Amy Brenneman in particular really gets to shine, in a chaotic, depressing way. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - A Matter of Geography (TV Episode) I think that's really the takeaway from this episode. Nobody's okay. Should be a fun season.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 93% The Leftovers: Season 2 - Axis Mundi (TV Episode) With any luck, the creators kept all of the good things from last season -- the great dialogue, the fantastic acting and character development -- and let the rampaging deer and inflatable penguin go free.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 91% The Leftovers: Season 1 - The Prodigal Son Returns (TV Episode) All of these people that we've been watching and wondering about and caring about for all these weeks, this story that has been sometimes stagnant and sometimes an emotional gut-punch, they all crystallized this week. And, damn, was it satisfying.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - The Garveys at Their Best (TV Episode) Many a time, I've accused this show of holding back, but this episode was a great big gift wrapped in sadness. This is the episode we've been waiting for.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Cairo (TV Episode) I was thinking political intrigue, like a post-Rapture Game of Thrones. What's actually happening is far more interesting. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Solace for Tired Feet (TV Episode) Suddenly, after weeks of stellar acting, great dialogue, and no forward motion whatsoever - after I had pretty much given up on anything even vaguely resembling forward motion - this week's episode threw it at us left and right.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Guest (TV Episode) The Leftovers gave us another single-perspective episode, focusing on Nora Durst. This episode was less tense than Matt's - no beating of thieves to a pulp, no race-against-the-clock climax - but I still enjoyed it more than the recent ensemble episodes.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 92% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Gladys (TV Episode) This episode, like every episode so far, had some gripping moments (thus the three stars). But there's no longer any avoiding it: Not enough is happening in this series. Which is incredibly frustrating, because in many ways it's so damn good. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 82% The Leftovers: Season 1 - B.J. and the A.C. (TV Episode) I really want to like The Leftovers. It's not perfect, but it's generally smart, stylish without being slick, and has a hell of a cast. One thing it's not, though, is subtle. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 92% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Two Boats and a Helicopter (TV Episode) If last week's episode was lacking in momentum - and it was - this week made up for it. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Penguin One, Us Zero (TV Episode) What we gained in explanation, we lost in momentum. I'm still enthusiastic about the characters and the premise, but more things need to happen now. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) These people have been cracked open, and the cracks are just near enough the surface to show, but just buried enough that they're sort of getting by. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
