I'm fascinated by this HBO show Leftovers. It seems almost pointless and plotless (I haven't read the book or even a synopsis of the book it's supposedly based on), yet I can't stop watching. It also seems to be building up to a season finale that'll be foundation-shaking and mind blowing like that time Jack screamed WE HAVE TO GO BACK! And next week's episode looks to be a major piece of that.
