The Leftovers Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot

5 second plot: Three years ago two percent of the earth's population vanished without a trace. This episode centers around a cop in a small town who doesn't seem to have lost anyone but still has a lot of trouble figuring everything out. His wife is in some strange cult, his son is doing something we don't know yet and his daughter feels the weight of the world on her shoulders. All the dogs that witnessed a disappearance went nuts. Oh, and J-Lo is also gone. And the Pope. And Gary Busey.

5 second review: We're left with more questions than we're getting answers. It's a little bit of that 'Lost-feeling' I must say. On top of the mystery it's quite dark and depressing.

IMDb score: 8,3/10
