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