Carrie’d away

If you’re not watching Carrie Coon in Season 2 of The Leftovers, you’re missing out.

I almost gave up on the show as Season 1 varied from meh to atrocious. But someone got a brain upgrade or a budget upgrade or Rod Serling came back from the dead, as absolutely everything is better. Far better. The acting, the cinematography, the music. Hell, even the credits.

And Carrie Coon is always great, but in this she’s just wonderful. Fierce and wounded and clever and afraid, she’s the vital heart of the show and reason enough to watch it without all the other reasons.
