Mrs. America last year and now this—how many shows use Max Richter’s main theme from The Leftovers as temporary music for rough cuts? Shame that something that is apparently so iconic and resonant got no Emmy love.
I will never not be pissed that Richter never got nominated for TLO.April 4, 2021 at 3:28 pm #1204175753
Have not seen Lovecraft Country.
Was just going to watch #4 and #5 last night, but I watched #6 and #7 too. So thankful that I did not watch the trailers until after I watched the seven screeners. I cannot believe what they put in them—avoid them if you still can! #1 and #4 are the only final cuts that I have. There was more of The Leftovers theme, including in an Ann Dowd scene, which was a fun crossover. There are a couple of people who can get name-checked to guest nominations if they qualify, which will be determined in the three episodes that I do not have.April 4, 2021 at 3:30 pm #1204175761
Yikes. I had a feeling that the trailer was revealing too much…April 4, 2021 at 5:51 pm #1204176095
They probably should have just wrapped this show up in three seasons in the way Pose are now doing. It’s a very specific story and if they veer too far from the source material the results can be disappointing. Clearly they seen how much of a phenomenon the show was in its early seasons and now seem to be milking it for everything they can get out of it. I just hope it doesn’t suffer the same fate of other shows that overstayed their welcome because it really is amazing and deserves to be remembered that way.

Feature and review embargo lifts April 23rd, ahead of the 28th premiere.
Is the late embargo lifting a bad sign qualitatively?

My guess is that it is just an aging show, so they figure that there is not much point in trying to build a buzz in the weeks leading up to the premiere. I think of how even when Homeland would have a great season in its later years, it could only muster up a 74 on Metacritic for its fourth season or 65 for its seventh. Hard to say how much the critics helped there beyond simply being additional channels advertising the existence of the show, like a billboard. I think that Hulu wants to remind people that it is coming back and have them to be able to watch it before they forget about it again.April 14, 2021 at 11:50 am #1204200465
Just got the eighth episode, so that will factor into reviews as well when the embargo lifts next week at 9 a.m. Pacific on Friday.April 14, 2021 at 1:44 pm #1204200703
Wow, they really want that entire season to be seen!
