The Leftovers is Over

I could write a book about The Leftovers, or somebody could, maybe not me. I can’t recall a show that so deliberately avoided answering its own questions and still managed not to blot out any of the emotion or struggle of its characters. There’s so much to praise, to expound upon, but that’s not something I can contribute. I will add this note, however: the Sudden Departure is a metaphor for our world, for the cosmos: undeniably miraculous, unspeakably violent, raising endless questions which it answers only with infinite silence.
