Remember Left Behind? It was cheesy and had way too much Kirk Cameron. Anyway, now HBO has a new J.J. Abrams-directed show called Leftovers, which tells the tale of people left on Earth, post-rapture. And you can stream the first episode for free on Yahoo.

To be clear, I haven't watched the episode yet myself, so I can't speak to whether or not it's any good. The New York Times had a fairly good recap that piqued my interest. The premise: two percent of the world's population has vanished, and here we are, three years later, dealing with the loss of loved ones and random famous people. Among the people that evaporate? Shaq, Gary Busey, and the pope. Color me interested. Head over to Yahoo to check it out. [Yahoo Screen]
