About this show

From Damon Lindelof, co-creator of the hit series Lost, this one-hour drama focuses on a suburban town whose preconceptions are shattered in the wake of a global event dubbed “The Departure” (which may or may not have been the Biblical “rapture”), in which 2% of the world’s population were taken and others left behind.

I ended up binge watching the entire season and was ignorant of the book did not even know about it until I start watching the series. It definitely mesmerized me and I really enjoyed it. The original score is off the chain and it was finally released recently and I went & copped it immediately. And I've read they're doing the second season of this and I'm really looking forward to it. HBO definitely knows how to produce and put out solid material.

After watching this show on HBO, I was hooked. Pretty much binge-watched the entire seasons. Loved it from start to end. But, I will say one thing though.. at the beginning it was rather difficult to understand so I had to go back to a couple of episodes to pick up on the main storyline. But, after a while, the storyline became clear. Anyway, great tv show and I wish it would've continued past 3 seasons or been made into a feature film.

Starts amazing....Ends with the most disappointing, awful shortcut of a conclusion you will ever see. The writers obviously gave up trying to explain what they created. It leaves you wondering if they simply ran out of funding or decided to pursue pure cowardice in writing by their own free will. The acting and score, however, are truly great.
