THE LEFTOVERS (new HBO series from Damon Lindelof)

Been looking forward to this one for quite some time, and now we've finally got a premiere date for the start of its 10 episode first season. The pilot premieres Sunday, June 15th at 10pm, right after the s4 finale of Game Of Thrones, so it sure seems like HBO has a good feeling and some faith in it, they're pretty much giving it the best possible time slot.


It's based on a book by Tom Perrotta (author of books behind Election and Little Children) and it's mainly about the group of people apparently left behind on the planet after The Rapture whisks everyone else away to the afterlife. If I'm recalling this quote I saw a few months ago correctly, Stephen King called it "the best Twilight Zone episode you never saw". Damon Lindelof is writing the adaptation, Peter Berg directed the pilot and Lindelof is the main showrunner. The main cast includes Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Ann Dowd, Emily Meade and Annie Q.


The first trailer will both be online and air on HBO sometime this Sunday night, 4/6. (btw, for now at least can we please refrain from using this to talk about how much Lost sucked and the finale was a letdown...)

    It's HBO. That right there is enough to warrant at least watching the pilot.

    I couldn't stand those left behind movies, they were too preachy/religious.

    The plot of this sounds good but I don't want something that's going to be too preachy, when mainstream TV tries to do religion, it just comes off cheesy.

    I'm Catholic, but I don't need overbearing religion in my TV shows. You know what I mean?

    ohhhh okay. Well, don't mistake this show for any of those Kirk Cameron movies just because of a similar title. Granted I haven't read the source book, but I still feel reasonably confident in saying the last thing this series will be is preachy about religion. I think it's looking more at the sci-fi/genre angle of it all.

    If they would have approached it like the 4400 instead of the Rapture I would have had a higher level of interest going into it.

    I'm still gonna check it out, HBO hasn't steered me wrong yet.

    dizzy, like I said in the OP, the guy who wrote this book, also did so for the movies of Election and Little Children, and with Stephen King comparing it to a great extended Twilight Zone episode, I really don't think you have to worry about religion. As weird as this may sound, I think the fact that the main plot is centered around something that has otherwise been commonly tied to a particular religion is almost incidental. Plus, the fact that Damon Lindelof wanted to make this into a TV show. and, someone who thinks Lost had a lot to do with religion, they really missed the point.

    Hopefully the trailer should clear that up.

    Alright well can't exactly say I'm super pumped after THIS teaser. Only 45 seconds long, and half of it was stock footage obviously not even from the show.

    Only 2%? seems like a low number for a Rapture

    oh wait, hang on... okay this didn't even fully click from my first view. From all that I read about this show, I was under the impression the 2% was about the number of people who REMAINED. That it was the large majority of people on the planet that were "taken", and it was this "small group" of people who were, well, the leftovers (obviously it would still amount to relatively a lot of people, but presumably the show would only center around a few of them).

    I was going to wait to actually check out the book in full until after this season was complete, but I think I might have to at least look for a synopsis right now.

    Yeah from what I heard in the teaser 2% was what was taken.

    this is technically NSFW, there's a tease of nudity and some language. Sunday June 29th at 10pm!! (right after the Thrones finale)

    HBO typically delivers high quality television, IMO, and I am very interested in checking this show out.

    Trailer really had me glued to the tv, despite not knowing WTF was going on.

    Looking forward to checking this one out.

    Watch The Returned. It's a great series (only 8 episodes) and same kind of concept.
