Okay, so there was no big dramatic series in September, but the month turned out to be entertaining without it I think. October though does offer up a pretty good one and mixes it up with plenty of other content. I’m sure by the time this tenth month is over we will have enjoyed what HBO had to offer yet again. So let’s jump right into it with what is waiting for us in October shall we?
Originals:The big appeal may just be the return of THE LEFTOVERS.Here, complete with all the trailers, is our setup for its return. Remember that more than three years ago, 2% of the world’s population inexplicably vanished. 140 million people, gone in an instant. No country, no state, no city was spared, except for one small town in eastern Texas. Population: 9261. Departures: Zero.
This is the setting for a tale of two families: the Garveys, who have moved to this special place, and whose lives were forever changed by the Departure, and the Murphys, a local family, who seem to have been spared from an event that shook the rest of the world. Created by Damon Lindelof and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta, THE LEFTOVERS returns for a second season SUNDAY, OCTOBER 04 at 9:00pm with other new episodes debuting subsequent Sundays at the same time. Here is Trailer # 1.
After last season’s elaborate Memorial Day initiative by the Guilty Remnant plunged Mapleton into chaos, season two of THE LEFTOVERS finds many searching for a fresh start. Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) has retired from his post as chief of police of Mapleton and is moving his new family to Texas. With him is Nora Durst (Carrie Coon), who’s discovered new purpose in caring for the baby she found on Kevin’s doorstep and welcomes leaving behind Mapleton and the incredible tragedy she suffered there. Kevin’s daughter, Jill (Margaret Qualley), is equally eager to leave the town she grew up in and the friends she made there. Upon their arrival in Jarden, Texas, the newly formed Garvey family meets their neighbors, the Murphys: John (Kevin Carroll) and Erika (Regina King) and their teenage twins, Evie (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Michael (Jovan Adepo). Attracted to this special town and hoping for miracles for his whole family, Matt Jamison (Christopher Eccleston) has moved with his wife, Mary (Janel Moloney), who still suffers from consequences of the terrible car accident on Oct. 14. Meanwhile, Kevin’s ex-wife, Laurie Garvey (Amy Brenneman), has left the Guilty Remnant and reunited with her son, Tom (Chris Zylka), who may have finally discovered a cause to help replace the pain in his heart. And while Meg (Liv Tyler) remains in the Guilty Remnant, it may not be the same cult she originally joined.
Cast regulars for season two include Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka, Regina King, Kevin Carroll, Jovan Adepo and Janel Moloney.

HBO’s Other Platforms: I think I say this every October and I am going to do so again. Where is the TALES FROM THE CRYPT marathon? Anyway, there is always something you haven’t watched yet regardless of genre. Once again here are some suggestions. HBO Latino: There is the continuation of two series on the channel, EL NEGOCIO and HEROES COTIDIANOS and the launch of a new series called MAGNIFICA ‘70 which is about a federal film censor whose life seems more risque than the movies he censors. In movies there is JUAN IN A MILLION In this mystery a Harvard freshman wakes up after a party to learn that he is the only man left in the city.EL MAR Y EL (The Sea and Him) is a tragi-comedic short film. HBO Family: First time movies on this channel are ELLA ENCHANTED, LIKE MIKE 2: STREETBALL Plus there is SCOOBY DOO movies and the original AGENT CODY BANKS.HBO Signature: We are running thin but new to the channel is CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE DRAMA QUEEN, DISNEY’S THE KID and FEARDOTCOM. HBO Comedy has comedy blocks of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM every couple of nights and the debut of AGENT CODY 2: DESTINATION LONDON. Hey, remember I don’t pick them I suggest report what is on. Now/Go:First off, here is a reminder of some of the series on the sites that you forgot about or didn’t even know existed. How about Gervais in EXTRAS, Dern in ENLIGHTENED,Byrne is IN TREATMENT, plus TELL ME YOU LOVE ME, OZ and the Miniseries FIVE DAYS. How about checking out some of the Emmy winners like VEEP and the Miniseries OLIVE KITTERIDGE? In fact, that is my top recommendations as we get into the cooler fall weather. Go binge watch an HBO series you’ve missed including those Emmy winners.
