Series Premiere Review: HBO's 'The Leftovers'

'The Leftovers'... Anyone else disappointed and totally mind-f*cked?!

...Some people actually disappeared... Some went crazy and joined a group that practices silent communication, chain smokes, dons all white (all the time), eats slop and harasses those still in mourning and wonderment over what exactly happened to those that disappeared... Domestic dogs whose owners disappeared have reverted to their feral roots and created a ferocious, ownerless pack...

I'm just like... who chose one of the greatest, calming songs of all time to hype us up about this damn show?!!! ("Retrograde" by James Blake-check out the vid below)

..If only the premiere was as great as the marketing..

I was sooo excited for this premiere.  So excited. After watching this I lost about 1 hour and 15 minutes of life and gained a damn headache!

But I have faith in HBO (thanks to 'Girls', 'Game of Thrones', The Sopranos', 'The Wire', 'Veep', 'Hello Ladies', etc.) so I shall tune in over the next few weeks.  I'm giving this show till the 3rd episode to reverse the ill feelings this premiere threw on me.
