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.

This was a fantastic hour of the series.

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.
