IGN - HBO's The Leftovers casts a gripping, morbid spell. Think of it as a unique entry in the "post-apocalyptic" genre. It's a dystopian future, but with all the amenities intact. It's the human psyche that's taken a beating, not the planet. Numbness, nihilism, anxiety, rage, violence, and mystery all play out on a canvass that resembles our exact world. But it's a world that, on both large and small scales, can't deal with unexplained loss.
