On TV Tonight, Sunday, 06/29/14: The Leftovers, Penny Dreadful and More

TV Equals Midseason 2014 Sunday

Our Picks
 

The Leftovers – 10pm HBO
Damon Lindelof (Lost) is bringing a new show to our screens, only this time he is letting us know ahead of time it is drenched in religiosity. And darkness. Seriously, the trailers are insanely dark for a series set three years after the possible Rapture– given how short our collective attention spans are, I would assume most of us would have moved on to a new topic by then, but hey, that’s just my theory. All kidding aside, The Leftovers could end up being fascinating. We’ll have to watch the pilot to find out.

Penny Dreadful – 10pm Showtime
If someone were to ask me which television series surprised me the most this season, I would say Penny Dreadful. It has exceeded my expectations in every way; I just love everything about it. The character dramas, the psychological aspect, the horror– it is an exquisite piece of work. Tonight is the finale, so if you have not been watching, Sunday is a good day for a marathon.

Vicious – 10:30pm PBS *Check Local Listings
PBS loves us enough to bring Sir Ian McKellen’s sitcom stateside. Game of Thrones fans who are not familiar with Iwan Rheon’s (Ramsey Snow) larger body of work, do not be surprised to discover he can be funny. He does not always play sociopaths and, get this, he is actually quite charming when he’s not torturing Theon Greyjoy.
