Season 3's Best Episode Yet!
NOTE: THIS IS MY FIRST REVIEW! PARDON FOR ANY INCORRECT GRAMMAR YOU MIGHT DETECT WHEN READING THIS! English ISN'T MY COUNTRY'S MAIN LANGUAGE. YOU MIGHT AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH WHAT I AM SAYING IN THIS REVIEW! EITHER WAY, I APPRECIATE YOUR OPINION.
The Leftovers keep on topping each other up with a brilliant episode after another. But this episode just put itself from its very peak alongside last season's International Assassin...for now.
G'Day Melbourne focuses on Kevin and Nora who have traveled to Australia, where Nora tracks down the LADR which she thought is a fraud, while Kevin tackles a problem of his own.
I don't have to spoil this for you, especially if you're a fan who haven't watched this episode (but if you did, what do you think?). The episode has everything that makes the Leftovers one of the best shows: the engaging storytelling, the perfect music choices (TAKE ON ME!!!), beautiful camera-work, masterful direction! And like always, the performances are just breathtaking. The supporting cast are great, but Theroux and Coon own this episode, especially during one of the last scenes where I was just speechless watching them deliver lines and emote. Just WOW! I will be surprised if they didn't get nominated for an Emmy this time.
My fear for a disappointing series finale has finally disappeared. I'm so excited for the final four episodes. Next week is another Matt episode with Laurie and the Murphys. Which is probably be another astounding hour of television.
Final Score: 11!!!/10
