Sci-Fi TV Podcast - The Leftovers Season 2
We're very pleased to welcome back Karen from The Walking DeadCast and Wayne from The Packers Fan Podcast to discuss Season 2 of 'The Leftovers'.
Questions to consider:
What did you think of this dramatic departure in location and characters for Season 2 Would you want to live in Jarden/Miracle? Favorite Scenes? Favorite Character? How about the brilliant music score, and repeated themes, in both seasons? Is Patti really gone? Predictions for Season 3? Who is David Burton? What’s the connection to Australia? Virgil (Shoot Patti) vs. Kevin Sr. (throw Patti down the well), how are Virgil and Kevin Sr. related? Predictions for Season 3?
“While worldwide flooding is expected, we should be taking off before the rain begins,” “In the event of cabin decompression, place your oxygen masks over your mouths as we all prepare to take our last breaths. Please be sure to keep your seatbelt fastened, as everything you know and love will soon be gone. Flight Attendants: Please prepare for Final Departure”
Jarden seems to have become a beneficiary and a hostage to the Departure (They derive a big benefit from Tourism, but are now a walled off park where people tend to repeat even mundane events, thinking they’re preventing another departure) (When the prisoner is released, the jailer also goes free)
Also, if Evi’s disappearance is really a departure, would that mean that Jarden was no longer saved?
Bold moves, the intro at Axis Munde, introducing the Murphy’s in a new location Foreshadowing of David Burton, Evie and the girls were secretly part of the GR Lori goes from being part of the GR to trying to destroy them Seems to be a power triad between Patti, Virgil and Kevin Sr., but who really has the power?
For a real deep dive into each episode, I suggest you subscribe to Jim and A-Ron’s Podcast called ‘Following the Leftovers’ over on the Bald Move Network. They go into much more depth and detail on each episode, and you’ve still got time to go through their podcast before Season 3 of The Leftovers starts on Sunday, April 16th. Find them at BaldMove.com
The Walking Dead ‘Cast with Karen and Jason, where can we find you and Jason? As of this recording, we’re into the last few episodes of Season 7 and war seems to be brewing...

Episode 1 (Axis Mundy).
Prehistoric pregnant women? I was looking at purpose here or just pure chance? A bit 2001 with the classical music Very bold move! Not until the piano kicks in five minutes later do we even know that this is the leftovers Evie meets Dr. good heart who has an Australian accent Evie and the girls are silence in the car, one of the small signs we never realize that they're part of the guilty remnant (Great foreshadowing) The Murphy family seems pretty normal at first There's a cricket in the house! Crack in the road is part of the tour, as is the woman in the wedding dress Some dude is living at the top of the concrete tower Letter for David Burton in Sydney Australia
Sci-Fi TV Podcast - The Leftovers Season 1
The Leftovers Show Notes - Season 1
Welcome to the very first episode of The Sci-Fi TV Podcast, my name is Rem and to help us get started, we’re very happy to welcome Karen, one half of the most popular Walking Dead Podcast on the planet, the Walking Dead ‘Cast.
And a big welcome to Wayne Henderson, from the Packers Fan Podcast, 11.22.63 A Look Back, and another mysterious tv fan podcast later in 2017.
On our first episode, we’re talking about Season 1 of the HBO series The Leftovers. We’re doing two catch you up episodes to refresh you for the 3rd and final season which begins Sunday April 16th on HBO.
We’ll spoil everything in season 1, but not season 2, so you have a chance to catch up on season 2 before we do our next episode.
Might be a bit of language here too,
Questions to consider:
What first got you watching The Leftovers?
The Damon Lindelof factor (Lost!)
Will we ever know the reason for the departure?
What else is coming?
What other unanswered questions do you have?
Dean the dog shooter. Angel? What’s with his truck? What does Kevin and Kevin Sr. have specifically? Is it that they’re resisting spiritual guidance? Did the GR use real bodies or mannequins?
Thanks to Karen and Wayne for joining us, and we’ll be back with a look at season 2 in early March as we make our way to the third and final episode of The Leftovers. Get all the show notes, video clips and more on the website at Sci-Fi TV Podcast.com
Episode 1 (Pilot)
That song! “Retrograde” by James Blake
Kevin and his up in the laundromat with a crying baby in season two like the woman did at the beginning of season one
- Jill might act out less if Kevin actually told her what he was feeling and going through. She acts out because she's not being included or talked to. (Kevin won't tell her not to go to the Memorial)
- What so obviously seems like the Christian rapture is being denied by Matt the
Tom reading ‘The stranger, by Albert Camus
lots of quick jarring cuts gives you the sense that there's tension and immediate danger just under the surface
Empty picture frames - The kids have lost all sense of meaning and purpose, and have become hedonistic.
Dogs, Deer and assorted animals. Kevin keeps waking up on the floor Tommy screaming under water Dog shooter at end, 'don’t just stand there'. What caused the dogs to go crazy? Matt as the Job of the Bible
Episode 2 (Penguins one, us zero)
Did Dean the dog shooter just give the black pickup truck to Kevin? Can't reconcile the black truck and how Dean would just give it to him Chopping down the tree, is that to demonstrate the nature of futility? Why did Nora push the cup off the table?
Episode 3 (Two boats and a helicopter)
Stop light goes from green straight to read and then flashes red, and pigeons on top of the street light Matt has the awesome creepy dream sequence!
Episode 4 (BJ and the AC)
Baby Jesus stolen Christine accosted by naked guy: ‘ you walk over the dead, they're all in white’, ‘I know what's inside you’ Kevin tries to arrest the GR, for trespassing at the school Kevin almost crashes car, loses control of it Kevin driving black truck now? Jill almost torching BJ, felt dark and sacrilegious Tom takes Christine to hospital Lori tries to serve divorce to Kevin by Meg reading a note from Lori Jill gives Lori a lighter The Twins return the BJ On the bus, Tom and Christine find dead bodies in white all over the road, like the naked guy said Kevin meets Nora (moments of brutal honesty) Kevin and cops mass arrest the GR The rest of the GR is breaking into homes and stealing pictures (also brutal considering what happens later in the season Kevin finds Matt re
