91% The Leftovers: Season 1 - The Prodigal Son Returns (TV Episode) After nearly 10 hours of pain, the series left us with the suggestion that hope and humanity can persevere, even in the cruelest of circumstances.‐ New York Times

100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - The Garveys at Their Best (TV Episode) But Sunday's episode, as difficult as it was to watch, also struck me as our best insight yet into the inner lives of characters who have been frustratingly opaque for an entire season.‐ New York Times

100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Cairo (TV Episode) All that is to say that "Cairo," the eighth installment of this debut Leftovers season, was a busy, twisty hour, packed with more plot surprises than the first few episodes combined. ‐ New York Times

100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Solace for Tired Feet (TV Episode) Not bad for The Leftovers, which turned in a solid showing with "Solace for Tired Feet," an hour that propelled the show's plot into some intriguing corners even as it reminded us that many of its characters remain unknowable, even seven episodes in.‐ New York Times

92% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Two Boats and a Helicopter (TV Episode) For all the clumsiness, this episode was also the most compelling and fast-paced of the series so far. ‐ New York Times

100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Penguin One, Us Zero (TV Episode) Part of this show's challenge is to place us in the heads of characters coping with an utterly preposterous scenario, which is why the Case of the Disappearing Bagel was such a shrewd device.‐ New York Times

100% The Leftovers: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) This is The Twilight Zone by way of J. J. Abrams: a morally provocative, fantastical premise played out through a well-coiffed cast of actors with Gossip Girl-caliber good looks.‐ New York Times
