In an instant, 140 million people vanished from the face of the earth. The cause of that incredible event remains unknown, and there is no indication that those who are gone will ever be seen or heard from again. THE LEFTOVERS follows the lives that were forever changed by the event that shook the world on October 14. In the third season, the Garvey and Murphy families come together as they desperately grasp for a system of belief to better explain what defies explanation. The world is crackling with the energy of something big about to happen, a corresponding bookend to the Sudden Departure that sent them all spinning years earlier, bringing their journey Down Under.

This show is about what happens when 2% of the world's population disappears. The First season takes place 3 years after 140 million people around the world mysteriously disappear. We follow Kevin Garvey (Justin Thoreux), the police chief of his town. He is trying to keep the peace in his town when there are conflicts between the townspeople who are still mourning over their loved ones, and a silent cult called the Grim Remnants, that dresses in all white and bothers people with their presence. This cult tries to constantly remind them that 2% of the world disappeared and you can't just forget about them that fast. Along with the rise of a cult, religion basically drops because people believe God has forsaken them. Anyways, Kevin is a conflicted character. His son doesn't keep in contact with him, his daughter is distant towards him, and his wife joined the Remnants making his family scattered. Also the show follows Nora (Maggie Coons) who lost everyone in her household (husband, son, and daughter). The chances of that happening in one household are very slim. She works for a beureu that investigates disappearances, so remaining family members may collect pensions or benefits. To me the show is about how people try to move forward as best as they can when they experienced devastating loss that has no clear reason. This is the best I can explain the first season without spoiling anything major. I highly recommend watching it because everything about this show is well constructed. You'll hear devestating reveals about the characters accompanied by an excellent score that gives you "the feels." it's not all depressing though. This show has been my favorite of the past year and in my opinion, the third season was snubbed for any nominations at the Emmy.
I was hooked in season 1 and have waited for the next seasons. As with Season Three of LOST, co-creator Damon Lindelof looses steam in Season 3 of THE LEFTOVERS. The problem is there are too many stories to tell and too many mysteries created. Nothing will be totally wrapped up by the series end. We're back in Australia for most of Season 3. One episode begins with a naked male (yes, full frontal male nudity this season) running amok in a submarine. Then on to the story and his actions explained later in some quick comment. Very odd but I guess that is part of the series.
Brenneman has a heart breaking scene with Theroux that is a major key to the story. We sell the story unfold in her eyes and I wished we were actually seeing the story unfold rather than her telling the story. This season was full of new and bizarre characters and situations that only cluttered the story. Still, I am a huge fan and love the show. I was sorry to see it end.
Season 1 & 2, nice slipcase and digital copy.
Season 3 nada - just discs
Why don't media companies understand the importance of consistent packaging between seasons or sequels?
A lot of people like to collect the set and for the set to look like a "set".
Sloppy, poor decisions being made by people who don't understand their customers.
Previous 2 seasons came in nice premium slipcases, came with an episode synopsis, and a digital copy.
This release, 2 discs and that's it. Why would you do one thing for the first 2 seasons of a show, then for the third and final do the complete opposite.
