Did I mention The Leftovers is just excellent, particularly the episodes that focus on Carrie Coon’s character?

She’s one of the few actors who can make me feel what she’s feeling.

It also does things constantly that surprise me where when I see what’s about to happen, I think That can never work. But it just does.

Can panache be understated? If so, The Leftovers has understated panache, realistic surreal absurdity and is fearlessly self-confident in its explorations of the ludicrousness of normalcy both in our workaday lives and the conventions of its own format.
