    Leftovers is shorter and overall a slightly better show.

    The Leftovers is a masterpiece.

    I think The Americans has been consistently great and you should check it out first. The Leftovers has the advantage of being shorter but I prefer The Americans over it.

    The Leftovers is the best show on TV.

    I’ve only seen The Leftovers, so that. That show is so incredibly weird and complex, I still don’t think I’ve understood it haha.

    The Americans starts very strong and finishes even stronger, so if you want consistency maybe check it out first. The Leftovers might not hit you from the beginning, but it soon becomes one of the most emotionally complex and overall best TV shows you’re likely to ever see.

    The Americans is much better in my opinion. It is a pure masterpiece. There is not a single flaw.

    I like The Leftovers, but I not love it like many people here. It is very spiritual and religious, it is definitely not for everyone, and I liked the first divisive season, so I like all the seasons, but I just never loved it. Also, many of the characters are unsympathetic, it is very tough to root for most of them.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I kind of agree. I never understood the “It’s the best show ever” thing, but I can’t deny that it was a well-made show. I don’t think I fully understood it, so maybe that’s why I didn’t adore it like everyone else? Personally, season 3 was my favorite but I LOVED the first season! That finale still sticks with me.

    I can say that I fully understood it and that is the reason I don’t love it, there is too much religion and spiritualism for my taste. Also, the delusions of all the characters really drives me crazy in a bad way. But yeah, the show had some really powerful and memorable moments, all the season finales were pretty strong.

    The two best dramas of the decade! I’d start The Americans first as it’s slightly more conventional (as far as family spy dramas about Russian agents go). That will leave space for you to appreciate The Leftovers more when you finish.

    The Leftovers is a masterpiece that was too good for awards voters.
