Re: The Leftovers - Season 3

There was a moment is season 2 where a weird woman encamped outside of Miracle kept saying to Nora, "that's not your baby!"... finally she exploded and yelled, "shut the F*** up!". Was such an awesome delivery not sure another actress has the combo of vulnerability and badass-ness to pull it off. That entire scene where the baby gets taken and she is running after her, was a highlight scene of the series for me.

Yeah as 72off mentioned she was able to do that many times which is quite a feat. My favorite scene was her meeting with Holy Wayne in S1. Everything she did in this show was believable and her character ran the gamut of emotions. Sadly she probably won't even get nominated for an award.

Always loved the scene when she meets Kevin for the second time at the court house, asks him to go to Miami on a whim and when he mentions he has a daughter, she blurts out "Oh, **** your daughter!". Think that was the moment where I was fully on board with Co.on/Nora.

In the UK (not sure about other English speaking countries) it's a racist term for a black person.

Re: The Leftovers - Season 3

0 Emmy nominations in all 3 seasons, lol Emmy voters - pretty tilting.

EDIT: Actually, Dowd did get a nod for Guest Actress, so 1 nomination

Re: The Leftovers - Season 3

Lol Emmys. I don't even want to look at the list of nominations because it's going to have so much terrible crap that it'll just tilt me to no end. I bet shows like Mr Robot and The Americans are sweeping those.

Old lady and I watched this and finished a few weeks ago. Pretty fun. I would put in in my second tier of HBO shows. Thought Theroux was fantastic but Chris Eccleston stole the show.

The final scene with him and Nora was incredible. I've probably watched that 20 times.

Same here. I will get lost in a never ending hole of YouTube videos of the best moments from this show. If there is a show with more powerful moments please point me in that direction asap. I've got this and The Wire 1 and 1A.

Re: The Leftovers - Season 3

+1

re-watched the series again since it ended, and i gotta say that S3 played much better for me then, especially the ending
(even though i still maintain that they really could have used the extra 2 eps to sell everything)


and i thought of this show the other day when they mentioned that shooting in Texas killed 4% of the town's population, was like damn that's 2x The Leftovers = Season 4 one time!?

Yep I have Wire 1 by a comfortable margin and Leftovers 2.

Since we seem to have similar tastes, what are your 3/4/5?

3 would probably be Breaking Bad. I think I'd have Seinfeld and Cheers as my next two. Peak Sopranos was great, but I think it was a bit overrated. If you haven't seen The Handmaid's Tale, make plans to do so. The first season was great and right up there with season 3 of The Leftovers.

Re: The Leftovers - Season 3

so i came across this video the other day and learned that this scene mirroring thing is something they seem to like on this show.

1 - opening scene with Sam's mom / the Departure paired with Kevin at the laundromat with Lily in S2
2 - Paypals: Nora meeting Wayne in S1 paired with Nora donating to the missing girls fund in S2 (pretty obv, even i caught this one on 1st viewing)
3 - end of season anarchy: Kevin going into the burning house to save Jill in S1 paired with him going into the clinic after being shot in S2 (kinda caught this one myself, the anarchy part of it anyway)


another video i saw pointed out how the scene in the car after Kevin beats up Tommy's dad in S1 mirrors the scene of them in S2 just before Dean shoots up their car, so there are probably more examples of this. makes sense given how many things seem to repeat in this show.


anyway, i think it's mostly just a fun stylistic thing for them more than anything else, but i could be wrong. but if it means anything, it'd probably be in this one:




(i never thought much about Nora's story bc i don't really care or feel that it's important whether it's true or not, but have seen/read stuff since then that leads me to believe that she is indeed telling the truth fwiw aka nothing)
