The Leftovers:

Hide Van Redin/HBO Hide On what The Leftovers never got to tackle So, how are y’all doing after watching a practically perfect series finale? I might be in review mode with the New York Film Festival virtually in full swing, but I also can’t stop thinking about the end of The Leftovers. At first, I let it sit. Then I started going down the rabbit hole. And then I started to nitpick at the most minor of things. (This doesn’t change how I feel about the show or the finale at all. I’m only human!) If I...
    San Antonio – Leftovers can help your budget, save you time on cooking meals and help reduce food waste. But keeping them in your refrigerator too long can be unhealthy. Healthline Magazine reports many different factors that can influence how long you can store your food. Fresh fruits and vegetables last the longest. They can be left in the fridge for up to five days. They will usually last up to seven days if they are cooked. But be sure to eat fresh produce as early as possible because it will start to lose flavor . Bread will last as long as it does not grow mold. However, after three days it will taste less fresh. Cooked pasta and...

Hide Ben King/HBO Hide “This is a love story” The concept of Damon Lindelof as a romantic is certainly not a new one, as several critics pointed out during Watchmen’s run. Indiewire’s Libby Hill expanded upon it in December, writing that “Understanding romantic relationships within Lindelof’s universes is to accept that love is a thermodynamic miracle.” Lost’s best episode, season 4’s “The Constant,” is a time-travel saga that ends with a life-saving phone call on Christmas Eve. At the heart of Watchmen is a love story that’s doomed from the start but still worth pursuing. Because of that comparison, I knew in...

Hide Ben King/HBO Hide The absurdity and poignancy of Matt Jamison’s final chapter When I first launched this newsletter back in May, I mentioned that I knew one tidbit from season 3 among my very limited Leftovers knowledge. And folks, we’ve now reached that thing: The Lion Sex Boat. I remember it because of two pieces published in the aftermath that people shared: GQ’s oral history of the episode and a conversation with Damon Lindelof on how Vulture critic Matt Zoller Seitz inspired it. Both pieces are well worth every second of your...

Hide The Leftovers/HBO Hide The Leftovers’ apparent Kobayashi Maru If you’ve ever watched Wrath of Khan (aka the best Star Trek), you’re probably aware of the Kobayashi Maru, the infamous “no-win scenario” Starfleet cadets undergo while at the Academy. The point of the test is that it’s unbeatable, but it’s useful because instructors can see what kind of commander those cadets would be in that kind of scenario. “How we deal with death is at least as important as how we deal with life,” James T. Kirk explained. Kirk famously...

Hide Van Redin/HBO Hide A return to Perfect Strangers, what might lie beyond, and the Wu-Tang Clan If you’ve been following my somewhat sporadic live-tweeting of The Leftovers, you’ll know that I’ve kinda become obsessed with Perfect Strangers, the long-running sitcom that debuted several years before I was born (and I’ve never seen) that’s become something of a running gag throughout the series. It returned in a big way in “Don’t Be Ridiculous,” which gets its name from the catchphrase often uttered by Balki (Bronson Pinchot), one of the titular Perfect Strangers. It...

Hide The Leftovers/HBO Hide The catharsis of Jarden At the beginning of The Leftovers’ second season, Kevin, Jill, Nora, and Matt all headed to Jarden, Texas as a means of escape, or in search of peace, or even a miracle or two. And in those 10 episodes, The Leftovers came into its own. Yeah, it might be a little strange that I’m saying that about the middle 10 episodes of a 28-episode series, but The Leftovers is a slow-burn and hell, it’s earned it. Despite a few minor missteps (such as the Meg subplot from the end...
    Only a week after QAnon supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene won a GOP congressional primary in Georgia, Laura Loomer won a GOP congressional primary in Florida — and now, Loomer will go up against incumbent Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel in the general election. Given how Democratic Frankel’s district is, Loomer will be fighting an uphill battle — unlike Greene, whose district in Georgia is deeply Republican. But Loomer’s campaign is sure to embarrass her party. This is the same Loomer who was banned from Twitter and other social media platforms because of her hateful rhetoric attacking Muslims and others — and who is so extreme that she was even banned from the 2019 Conservative Political Action Conference after harassing and badgering...
    Ashlie D. Stevens August 18, 2020 9:01PM (UTC) Think about what your refrigerator looks like in that two to three day window before you finally break down and head back to the grocery store  — especially now, during the pandemic.  You know what I'm talking about; the vegetables are starting to wilt, there's a nearly empty carton of eggs and while there isn't enough leftover pasta to reheat for a full meal, there's too much to just toss it out.  : There's probably a lot of random items, too, like that half-full tub of shrimp paste you dip into occasionally to make curries, or maybe an unopened culinary gift — homemade pickles or a jar sourdough starter from a...

Hide Van Redin/HBO Hide The radicalization of the Guilty Remnant The first few minutes of “I Live Here Now” unraveled one of the season’s biggest mysteries. Evie Murphy and her two friends didn’t simply vanish into thin air or depart in the middle of an earthquake, as some people imagined. Kevin Garvey didn’t harm them, as John Murphy believed when he shot Kevin in the gut. Rather, the girls faked their disappearance, left their possessions and loved ones behind, and they joined Meg Abbott’s more extreme faction of...

Hide A Trip Down to Kevin Garvey’s Inferno I rewatched Palm Springs, which is easily one of my favorite movies of the year, the other night with a friend who hadn’t seen it before. It’s a great film in its own right, but it’s also the perfect quarantine movie: It captures the extreme isolation and our collective lack of a grasp on time itself in ways it was never designed to do. “International Assassin” feels like it’s in a similar vacuum despite airing in 2015.

    The Moist Maker. "Friends: The Official Cookbook" An official "Friends" cookbook is being published in September, and it includes one of the show's most iconic foods: Ross' sandwich. Insider got the recipe ahead of the book's release, so you can make your own Moist Maker. The iconic sandwich is made by Monica using Thanksgiving leftovers, including her secret: the extra slice of gravy-soaked bread in the middle. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. There are few truly iconic sandwiches from popular culture of recent decades, but one that is undeniably deserving of icon status is the Moist Maker. For the uninitiated, the Moist Maker is Ross's Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich from "Friends." In season 5, episode 9 of...
