Critic Reviews for Off Ramp

The episode ends on a fairly promising note, as these two running a cult in order to save people from a cult can only lead to some interesting television.

For the third time in as many episodes, the perspective is shifted on The Leftovers. But thankfully, more questions continued to be answered than asked.

In a revealing episode that found the former GR member out of the cult and actively trying to save other members, Amy Brenneman brought impressive depth, range and emotion to a character who's been building up to a breaking point since Season 1.

The jarring nature of 'Off Ramp' comes from how quickly it snaps the viewer back into the mindset of season 1 and how it explores the repercussions of those ten episodes with such a specific and intimate field of vision.

This was as great a showcase for Amy Brenneman as "Guest" was last year for Carrie Coon.

"Off Ramp" was exceptional, taking us back into the sad, soul-sapping arms of the Guilty Remnant and all the irrevocably damaged people who find solace within its ranks. Haunting, moving, and thought-provoking.

Season two isn't a more upbeat show, but it's one that is moving out of the stasis of depression towards a more dynamic engagement with why it's so sad all the time.

Everyone on The Leftovers wants to believe there's a right way to live in the post-departure world, but is blind to the fact that any belief, any action that gets a person through the day is the right way to live.

The gravitational pull of the GR and their logic has a hold that is hard to shake. Just ask Tom.
