HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ teaser: Damon Lindelof’s new series looks … awesome?

The latest -Yes, very, very awesome. Typically when you have a show airing on HBO, it is given the benefit of the doubt by many wondering whether or not it is going to be something worth watching.

But yet, for whatever reason, there is a percentage of the internet who still wants a pound of flesh from Damon Lindelof. Maybe it’s because they hated the “Lost” ending, or because the hated “Prometheus.” It’s hardly to necessarily figure out how the internet thinks. We’re coming at this story about “The Leftovers” as someone who loved the “Lost” ending, and maybe that’s why we can separate this from anything in Damon’s past and proclaim it to be our most-anticipated series of the summer.

We’ve also already went through and cycled through the complains from the internet about this first teaser already.

That it’s “boring” – How is a show about tens of millions of people around the world “boring”? We don’t quite get that one.

The narration doesn’t fit – We at least understand this feedback a little more, but we like how it is somewhat off-kilter and unexpected. We feel like if the show had gone in here and tried something predictable, and wouldn’t have worked nearly as well.

It’s going to have a disappointing ending, too – Now you’re just being petty…

It’s not accurate to the Bible’s view of the Rapture – Given that there are so many different readings of Scripture and what things mean, why can’t there be one more? Also, you have no problem with aliens or slobby guys on sitcoms always getting models for wives. You can buy this if you really want to.

It is ultimately hard to judge a show on a teaser, but so far, this is exactly the tone we were hoping for from Lindelof’s next TV project.

“The Leftovers” premieres on Sunday, June 15 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern after the “Game of Thrones” finale. Click here if you want to get further news and updates from us via our CarterMatt Newsletter.
