    I figured I'd give it a shot. Not a bad first episode but I am left with a lot of WTF?!?! If they don't drag out the story and get into explaining things soon I'll stick with it.

    Basic story line is that three yard ago a shitload of people simply vanished and it isn't known why, how or where they went. Those left behind have no answers and are coping with life since in different ways.

    I liked it but the irony of the Sheriff losing his family too even though they are all alive is a little :rolleyes:

    So it featured a dead dog named Dudley. I hope Ronnie Mund wasn't watching. Isn't Damon Lindelof a Stern fan? Did he put that in there on purpose?

    Oh!! I didn't realize what this show was! I read the book, and it was really good. All of his books that I've read are good. (Especially Bad Haircut: Stories of The Seventies..... anyone who grew up in the seventies would love that book. :p)

    Chloe is said to act like an entitled cunt.

    This show? I'm gonna give it another 1/2 episode. To me it seems like they gonna bombard you with questions that will never be answered. Plus the teen whore kept her bra on, always a bad sign in an HBO show.

    Is this the same guy that did revolution. That show was horrible. I watched the leftovers last night concepts good but I hope they don't stay with this formula of never having an actual story or answer.

    They also need to go outside that town and show a worlds perspective. I understand the base of the story is that town but this 2% was a worldwide thing. Should at least show that.
