LET me add two more TV series in my long list.

[1] “The Leftovers” (HBO). Takes place three years after a global event called the "Sudden Departure," the inexplicable, simultaneous disappearance of 140 million people, 2 percent of the world's population. Following that event, mainstream religions declined and a number of cults emerged. Interesting ride with intriguing premise. Some Americans say they will leave America in the case Mr Trump becomes President. What if a Marcos returns to power in the Philippines? Maybe other peoples of the world are mulling the same thoughts as well. People in Mongolia or Chad. Wells Fargo has already bought prime properties in Mars and the Kardashians just secured 35 acres in Planet Swag, according to Call your real estate agent now! Don't be a “leftover."

[2] “The Last Man on Earth” (Fox). A post-apocalyptic comedy, starring Will Forte. Story: In 2020, Phil Miller (Forte) is seemingly the only human left on Earth after a deadly virus swept the planet one year earlier. An average man "who likes Star Wars, Twinkies, and sex,” Phil searches North America in his RV for other survivors. This has been my consuming and weird kind of fantasy. Suddenly, I am the last living person on earth—which means, I could just stride in a Target, Trader Joe's and Walmart and just grab beef jerkies, PBRs, ramens (Ichiban, Nissin, Thai etc) and all those 16 movies in 1 DVDs. Uh huh.
