The Last Man On Earth

The title speaks for itself.

    I watched the first two episodes, at the end of which it began to follow the same format as “harem anime”, a format I am not fond of.

    Phil on his own, upon deciding he’s the last person on earth, displaying a total disregard for everything and anything really, including personal hygiene – very funny. Phil and Carol as the last two people on earth, pretty much hating each other but trying to make the best of it due to the circumstances – also very funny. Phil fawning over Melissa when she arrives on scene – painful to watch.

    And to answer your question – if another guy had been introduced first and then Carol, I’m guessing the comedy would be a remake of the classic Spanky, Alfalfa, and Darla bromance vs. romance love triangle . . .

    ‘This show is really aimed at how shallow people can be’, really? I thought it was all about what an idiot Phil is. His antics are painful to watch at this point, it started out so good, either they do something to change their current plot line or I’m done . . .

    Okay, serious question, well, maybe not all that serious BUT – if, as it appears in Last Man Standing, most of the animal life on Earth were to perish along with humanity, what would be the impact on the world ecology? Would insects that live a parasitic/symbiotic existence with animal life die off, like mosquitoes and ticks? On the other hand would a lack of bug eating wildlife like birds and bats mean other insects would flourish, having lost their natural predators? Surely there would be a period of environmental upheaval as the planet sought to regain a state of equilibrium . . . would Phil’s enjoyment of insect free evenings outside be short lived due to the impending doom brought about by the complete annihilation of the planet’s flora due to the lack of pollinating insects?!?!?

    Just a thought . . .

    Tried watching Season 1, Episode 9 “The Do-Over”, last night and just couldn’t bring myself to sit through the cringe-worthy reveal when Erica and Gail meet the rest of the group and realize what a jerk Phil is. Nope, I’m out . . .

    So it’s safe to say it was just as cringe worthy and painful to watch as every other episode? I have to admit I like that ending, it implies Phil has made the effort to slightly redeem himself (emphasis on slightly).

    If they’re supposedly starting over, doesn’t that imply they’re driving someplace new, surely the group wouldn’t allow Phil to return? Or do you think if there ever is a second season they’ll keep the existing cast as is?
