    Fair enough Neil, I'm going to keep on trucking with it though as I am keen to see where it is taking me

Your choice of course but The Leftovers is set to be a bit of an epic. Quite often I am able to second guess where a plot line is going, so far with TL this has not been the case. Initially I thought it was going to be that old chestnut, alien abduction. This has been done to death with shows such as Taken and The 4400 and so my heart sank a little initially despite the high production values and excellent acting. Now though it would appear that there are religious overtones sneaking into the storyline, and not just through Christopher Ecclestone's character.
    It all sounds too much like hard word to me. Enjoy it, mate, but I’m with Neil on this one. I’m not into programmes with a ‘slow burn’; I like to be hooked instantly, and for stuff to hold my attention from start to finish, with no boring ‘lulls’ in between.

    So for me, it's an epic fail.

    Well, I became intrigued by the series from the beginning and quickly became hooked. Found the ending of the first series to be a bit of a "cop-out" - but the writers were paving the way for the second season.

    The second series started slowly but I soon lost interest; partly because of the Screen Writers Guild strike, and partly because I became tired of characters being killed off then miraculously coming back to life at a later time. I didn't see it through to the end.

    It reminded me of Marvels New Universe characters, a failed attempt to do superheroes in a normal, real world setting. I liked Heroes but it got killed off before it was finished. It was at times frustrating, and at times a tad too drawn out but overall pretty good.

    I watched the Leftovers last night and Christopher Eccleston's acting and American accent were so bad it really didn't help. There was the hints of a good story in the episode but it left me more annoyed than entertained so I think that's me done with the Leftovers now.

    Like Tom Selleck. He did a couple of films I like a lot. An Innocent Man and Quigley Down Under. Very underrated actor IMO and yes I like Magnum ...also liked The Rockford Files too
