The Leftovers After Show recaps, reviews and discusses episodes of HBO's The Leftovers.

Show Summary: In a global cataclysm, "The Sudden Departure," 140 million people disappeared without a trace. Three years later, residents of Mapleton, N.Y., try to maintain equilibrium when the notion of "normal" no longer applies. Intense grief has divided families and turned faith to cynicism, paranoia and madness, leading some of the traumatized to join the Guilty Remnant, a cultlike group. Kevin Garvey, a beleaguered police chief, must keep peace between townspeople and the cult, a task made tougher with concern about his kids. His daughter alternates between apathy and rebellion, and his wayward son befriends a charismatic prophet. "The Leftovers" is based on the best-seller by Tom Perrotta, who is one of the series' executive producers.

WORST. LEFTOVERS. PODCAST.

Do yourself a favor and SWITCH to PostShow Recaps, Baldmove, or Sudden Departure if you want to hear an INTELLIGENT ‘Leftovers’ discussion. AfterBuzz has a FEW decent shows—BUT ‘Leftovers’ is NOT one of 'em.

TO BE SPECIFIC: Roxy Striar is often GRATING, as her personal biases tend to get in the way of her understanding the motives of certain characters. Kelly McInerney struggles to ARTICULATE almost everything (and when she does start talking, it sounds like she's watching a totally DIFFERENT show). Steve Kaufmann offers some of the most awkward, LAZIEST analysis I've ever heard. And Zach Wilson… I can tell the dude is doing his best as a host—but it's tough to steer a ship full of blatherskites.

Spectacularly beside the point

The ability of this show's hosts to blab about the least interesting and most beside-the-point aspects of one of tv's best shows is truly astounding.
