    Did anyone else watch ‘The Last Man On Earth’ tonight? It was hilarious! Will Forte was comedic gold, but also had a surprising amount of heart. The premiere was an hour long (two episodes), but the previews have really done a good job of hiding a twist that happens in the second episode, so I won’t spoil it right away for those who have yet to catch it. The first episode was also written by Forte and was directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who are just on a roll lately after the ’21 Jump Street’ movies and ‘The LEGO Movie’. I’m looking forward to seeing how this series goes, but so far based on the first two episodes I think it’s a great concept and hilariously executed. Forte could be a strong Emmy contender, and Phil Lord and Chris Miller are strong contenders for directing.

    I loved it. The pilot is one of the best in long, long time, especially for a comedy. Forte and Schall are dynamite. I definitely hope we get more from Lord and Miller, seeing as they’re probably the best comedy directors working today. With the new Emmy rules, I can see both leads getting nominations. This could really go the distance. Anyway, I’m very excited to see where this goes.

    I agree! Forte was terrific solo in the first episode, and he was even better working off of Schaal in the second episode, and she was fantastic too. The pilot was the best comedy pilots I have seen in years. I hope this does well and people give it a chance, it would be a shame if something this original and fresh were to be cancelled due to ratings.

    I thought it was good…until it completely changed direction when Kristen Schaal appeared.  Turning the premise into a rom-com is exactly what the show didn’t need.

    This show is fantastic! Can’t believe a comedy so fresh and original is on network TV.

    I’m surprised this show is getting such acclaim. The promos look awful.

    I enjoyed the pilot but the second episode went downhill with Carol. Hopefully she becomes more tolerable.

    The first episode was amazing, but I’m not sure if the show will work with Carol in it. Can this somehow be a figment of his imagination? A scape mechanism in a near-death scenario? It would be interesting if it ended up being something like this. Will forte is so great in this though. The Pilot is a tremendous tape for him, hillarious and touching.

    The third episode was so good, I loved the chemistry between the leads. With that ending though, I can’t wait to see Phil’s dilemma to what to do.

    Caught up with the first two episodes this weekend. Feels fresh and original, but this is one of those high-concept things where you have to force yourself not to think too much… but I kept wondering where all the decaying, stinking corpses of the entire planet’s population went to. What, did all the morticians die last? lol Also, just two people would do a very poor job of repopulating the earth. Who would their kids mate with? (Or, as Carol would have it, with whom would their kids mate?) Each other, to create an inbred race? And it’s just really hard to imagine how this could be sustained as a series over the long haul.

     

    But “Alive in Tucson” looks like a winning submission for Lead Actor in a Comedy if I ever saw one.
