- The Leftovers: Series 1 review by MF
I had no preconceived ideas about this show so watched with an open mind prepared to stop viewing if it proved to be a dud. I'm delighted to say that I haven't enjoyed a s series as much as this since Breaking Bad. Plausible twists and turns in every episode and many unanswered questions to continue in series two, which I only hope is as good as this one.
I will be recommending everyone I know (with adult tastes) to watch this series.
