The First Full Trailer For The Leftovers Will Blow You Away

There's simply nothing to dislike in the first full trailer for Damon Lindelof's new Rapture drama The Leftovers. The show is about 2% of the world's population simply disappearing one day, and how the survivors deal with this inexplicable loss. Spoiler: They don't handle it very well.


The tension, depression and madness just oozes of the trailer, and frankly, the show loosk amazing. The Leftovers premieres on June 29th, shortly after Game of Thrones fourth season ends; I'd say HBO has found a worthy replacement.



I'd like to see a treatment of that story where things suddenly get better after the most fundamentalist folks get disappeared. Suddenly there's a lot less resistance to social welfare programs, much less support for foreign intervention, some sensible gun control measures get passed. If the rapture means that the American Taliban gets called home, bring it on.
