"The Leftovers" anyone? [View all]

I've watched most of it shaking my head. Just not a fan of the genre. But I thought it was headed in one direction and surprised the heck out of me by going more political than religious. Although the two are most definitely aligned in real life and on the show.

Any guesses about the finale on Sunday?
