What show do you put above The Leftovers?


I thought 3 was better for the most part, but international assassin is still the best episode of the series. Three had less going on, but the acting was by far better, in depth storytelling was better.

Leftovers is better. Breaking bad is very good, and the acting is good, but the writing somehow surpasses breaking bad.

I'm not sure I'd put any show over the leftovers in terms of raw quality. It has better writing than anything I've seen. However, its hard to compare a lot of other shows. Are there shows funnier? sure. Are there shows with more action? sure. But this show deals with emotion and loss better than anything ive ever seen.

Season 3 was great, but I have to give it to season 2. Those episodes hit me harder I think.

I agree The Leftovers is better than Breaking Bad, but it's hard to compare the two. You can recommend Breaking Bad to everyone. That is a "fun" show (that can turn very dark at times), but The Leftovers is just so emotional. It certainly is not for everyone and I understand why it has 8.1/10 on IMDB vs BB's 9.5/10

I mean, this scene always gets me, but I especially wanted to cry now

I agree. It was sad even without the music
