Kudos to Christopher Eccleston

And The Emmy Goes to....

The Leftovers is one of the most depressing and painful yet brilliant hours of television to watch. I have posted a few times about the show, mostly focusing on the nudity, most recently last month with a scene from actor Chris Zylka. Zylka leads a long list of actors turning in amazing performances some of whom include Regina King, Amy Brenneman, Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon and Christopher Eccleston.

This season has been especially stellar, one of the best being the November 2nd episode, No Room At The Inn. Eccleston's Matt Jamison was in almost every scene of the episode and the his journey, along with his wife Mary, (Janel Moloney) was a painful one to watch. Eccleston was incredible in every scene. His emotions ran from resigned to pained, distraught and hopeful through resolute and resigned. His nude scene, equally brave for both actor and character, a moment completely no sexual, yet compelling and complete. Most know the English actor as 9, being the the 9th Dr. Who, but I am shamefully naive about the world of Dr. Who but I certainly plan on educating myself about more of this actor's incredible work.
