you're right. I've raged just lying in my bed watching them - imagine seeing them stare at you while you do your groceries? I'd lose it. and I'm a fairly calm person!

well maybe "can't stand" is a little strong

they irritate me - the cop is drinking and driving; his daughter and her friend annoy me

if I knew any of them in person I think I would constantly look at them like  36

I've stopped watching, haven't decided if I'll pick it back up or not... im pretty content watching my Buffy and X-Files on Netflix...

I wonder if they get royalties for their show being on Netflix..

I have no idea what they're doing  dunno  Planning their own "suicides by murder"? Getting ready to dress up sandbags in the deceased clothes? Nope, not a clue.



I do know that I'd be living in a constant homicidal rage with those people around.

oh I know - there would be no tolerance of these people - you mentioned that a week or two ago and I cant get that out of my mind. they'd be violently attacked all the time - and not just by thugs - by soccer moms.  hell if anyone broke into my house or stalked me and my kids - eff that...


sandbags! hmm maybe that's they were!

yeah, after the pictures were stolen I said that

every episode I watch I just get so angry (probably irrationally so considering its a TV show).

looked like sandbags to me - what else could they be? they reminded me of the fake infants they make you carry around in health class to see if you are cut out to keep a kid alive

I didn't think about sandbags... I don't think it's bodies... and they didn't pay a whole lot for it to be bodies.. but sand might be... although that would be dam heavy to carry ... what about pigs?  sheep?

although sandbags do seem a little benign to have delivered in a u haul and paid for with a wad of cash

Great episode. It explained some of them well.

The brother/sister though.... They were weird together.

I liked that episode a lot. What's the deal with the brother and that guy (the house he went to)? Is that his real dad?

I think so.  I'm pretty sure they established a step relationship in the beginning.

This was a flashback of where they were when the departure happened and it tied some of the story lines together.  It makes more sense now.  The previews look good too.

I loved that episode. that really helped put some things together.

JJ - ya that was his real dad. looks like cop dad came into the picture when he was really little, had a baby with the mom - so the kids are step brother/sister.

agreed - the brother and sister were really weird... I think they were just trying to show us how happy and 'normal' everything was...

the saddest was the mom of the 2 kids and her husband. I cant remember her name. 

really neat about the baby... I really like this show - it can be just so weird sometimes! but I AM intrigued and want to see what happens next.



PS: did anyone notice how tight the cop's jogging pants were? leg

I can see why Lori is with the GR - having a fetus disappear from your belly and all that after the freaky things Red was saying to her in therapy.

I hope the finale doesn't let me down.

I'm excited about the show now. 

ya Lori's dealing with a cheating husband (if she knows) a disappearing fetus, and a patient who's predictions came true - well ya ... I mean - I still don't truly GET the smokers but a cult - sure

the rage I felt - I was sooo upset for Nora. happy about her finding the baby though. I think cop guy's wish came true. (I feel he wished to have a family again... or be happy again... )

I loved that black guy - sad to see him go. but I feel he was creating offspring to pass on his gift as he was dying. did anyone see what happened though? was he shot? I thought he was just sick? I think he's an angel of some sort.

even though it was a dream - I liked seeing cop dude - "seeing" what his Dad sees... that could get interesting.

so did the son drop off the baby on his dad's doorstep and coincidentally find his mom about to drown herself? where do you think they are going to go now?

I don't think Laurie was going to kill herself. I think she just didn't have anywhere else to go and now we know that the monument means something to her.

Yes Tommy dropped the baby off then I guess went to find his family. Either Rolling Stone or Entertainment weekly did a wrap up and we're supposed to assume that the park is somewhere they went together so its a natural place that they would find each other.

I did think Nora was going to kill herself. When she started the letter, then tucked the kids in their beds, I thought she'd lay down next to them.

Black guy - apparently was attacked but they didn't show it. He was running from someone previously and contacted Tommy to get some of his money back. I think he was a hack cult leader - I didn't get anything else. Now he just seems like a means to bring the baby to Kevin's family and convince Nora to stay.

really?? I thought  the black guy was a hack at first - but after he "saved" Nora I thought different - then the babies... something is up there.  the "healing business" he had going was hurting him.   the investigator was asking Kevin some interesting questions too.

Good? Bad? Spared? Condemned? Potato, po-tah-to. That's been the whole M.O. of The Leftovers, hasn't it?
this comment makes me think of Lost. The Reverend says Kevin is a "good man" ... makes me think of "Goodwin"

I was happy to see the dog come back :) im going to have to look for the book - maybe a Christmas present for Mr. G
