The Last Man on Earth

The Last Man on Earth

  • 2015 comedy sitcom
  • Fox (4 seasons)

Art has a weird way of showing up when you need to see it.  And yes, I think The Last Man on Earth is art.  The best kind actually!!! The comedy is sophomoric, the lead character is supposed to be annoying but does such a good job at it you really do get annoyed, the tone is off because it goes from fart jokes to sort of deep contemplations on what it means to be human, to be a part of society… OH, I can go on.  I’m pretty sure this show is not for everybody.  But if you can handle… well, picture throwing Walking Dead/Lost/Gilligan’s Island/ Twilight Zone/The Good Place  in a blender… Then what the hell? Let’s throw in some MacGruber… Best I can describe it.  If that’s not art I don’t know what is lol.

The Last Man on Earth is hilarious. It’s also ruthless. And sweet. And… romantic.  I hate to admit this, but it often made me cry.  Usually, I was crying because I was laughing (I could watch Tandy and Mike sing that stupid song from Once all day) but not always.  The show went to some dark, lonely places.  It’s a lonely show.  But it’s FUNNY.  I loved it.

I'm a lifelong writer and reader who finally got up the nerve to start my first novel. Wish me luck! In the meantime, I like to share my views on all things cheesy, creepy, deep, and/or ridiculous. Like me.
