Critic Reviews for A Matter of Geography

If the season two premiere confused fans of The Leftovers, the second episode should be seen as very satisfying.

Well, we're back on the Garvey family, but it's a new and improved Garvey family.

Theroux does an outstanding job of conveying just how haunted and needy Kevin is without going too over the top.

That might be what's so interesting about the second episode: it offers a peek behind the curtain that was put up last week.

This was an excellent chapter that, within just two episodes now, worked to tie so much together.

"A Matter of Geography" manages to have the intensity of last season's best episodes without feeling quite like a wallow in the way those were.. the series has found ways to still be about grief and madness without being consumed by them.

I think that's really the takeaway from this episode. Nobody's okay. Should be a fun season.

"A Matter of Geography" turned back the clock two-plus months, right back to the moment when Nora discovered Holy Wayne's baby on the Garveys' porch, and Kevin and Jill and their new pooch came back to a place that almost felt like a home.

We can shake our heads in disbelief at the people on screen flocking to this made-up town, but eventually we'll come to realize how we're all looking for our own version of Miracle, Texas.
