Pilot

Three years after millions of people - some 2% of the world's population - vanished into thin air, residents of Mapleton, NY weigh the pros and cons of a "Heroes Day" tribute to the local "Departed." Attempting to maintain a sense of normalcy in his strained community, police chief Kevin Garvey faces additional challenges at home with his daughter, Jill, who's lost in a cloud of apathy with her friend Aimee, and son, Tom, who has gravitated to a cult led by the charismatic Holy Wayne. Also of concern is a silent, white-clad group of chain-smoking men and women called the Guilty Remnant, who team up in pairs to stake out people and places around town. As tension in Mapleton escalates, the lives of Laurie, an unexpected member of the Guilty Remnant, and Meg, a recently engaged young woman, converge.

I'm addicted to this show but didn't want to be. The Leftovers just may hold the record for "f-bombs" in the first 20 minutes of the pilot. Only got hooked via 30 day HBO trial. I am most certainly NOT going to pay to continue for this show. Don't think I'll miss it cuz Season 3 picks up 8 years later? wtf

Very strange Pilot. Not sure what to make of it. Strange Flash-Backs, Strange music choices and cut aways. Not sure to make of it, but plenty of questions to answer. So will give it a go.
