Just saw the first episode of The Leftovers, has anyone else seen the show?

Also saw s1 of Taboo. While the atmosphere and design is great for early 19th century, the story loses traction after a few episodes and injects more and more filler.
Tom Hardy plays his role well enough as the man who holds the deeds for a important trading route while employing taboo 'magic' and Jonathan Pryce is great as a potty mouth businessman.

The Leftovers is one of the best shows to come out the last five years. It gets much better after the first few episodes (though I think even the beginning is really good). There are only three seasons, so like 30-ish one hour episodes. It evolves into something almost completely unexplainable without context in the last season. For a show about "Let(ting) the mystery be" it wraps up pretty nicely but don't expect every single thing to be explained as Lindelof said when the show started airing. Very few things are appointment TV for me anymore but this was.
You know, walk the earth, meet people... get into adventures. Like Caine from "Kung Fu."
