News & Interviews for The Last Man on Earth: Season 1
The Last Man on Earth approaches issues like loneliness and the need for a human connection but then pulls back hilariously. Too often, TV shows that take risks also take some effort on the viewer's part to enjoy. This one is just fun.
That's one reason to like the new Fox sitcom The Last Man on Earth ... It's all about the apocalaughs.
This is a concept that so far doesn't lack for execution. Last Man On Earth has no chance at all to be a blockbuster in league with Fox's new Empire. But it's another distinctive example of what the Big Four broadcast networks should dare and do.
It's a concept I'm not sure can be carried over a season, much less multiple ones. It might have been a stronger feature film.
Even though the show moves confidently and hilariously in a new direction in the second episode, at the same time it feels like the first half of a very smart, sharply edited feature film, not a sitcom with weekly obligations.
A not-uninteresting oddball series that's amiable enough, but not nearly funny enough.
The Last Man on Earth is the most fascinating comedy premiere in recent memory, a surprisingly reflective show.
As the show makes hysterically clear, if the weight of the world falls on a 21st century man's shoulders, the slovenly, lazy, daydreaming animal inside is quick to emerge.
The strength of The Last Man on Earth resides in the peculiar sense of humor of its protagonist, a Forte who has earned a place in the pantheon of great talents. [Full Review in Spanish]
The Last Man on Earth feels (at least for the moment) much closer to a curiosity than a surefire hit.
Will Forte plays the endearingly sad clown in Phil Lord & Chris Miller's comedic observations on dystopian life, proving that the writing/directing duo are reliable for hilarious revitalizations of tired plot concepts.
Audience Reviews for The Last Man on Earth: Season 1
Sep 19, 2019I absolutely love this show!
Sep 04, 2019A funny take on post-apocalyptic america. A good watch if you need a laugh at something that's a little different.
Aug 20, 2019Wow. I thought the opening montage was bad - superficial? Totally unrealistic? WHERE IS HE GETTING HIS PETROL FROM? - and then there was ANOTHER montage. And so it went. I managed three episodes then had to quit. The two characters aren't so much characters as collections of traits and compulsions. We're supposed to find Phil's collection sorta funny (because untrammelled self-pity, self-indulgence and wanton destruction is funny! And so is shitting in a pool!), and Carol's annoying, which made the whole stupid idea worse. No heart, no humour, no insight into the human condition at all.
Feb 19, 2019one of the best. how could fox cancel it. This is a mythery to me. a Must whatch IMHO.
Jan 14, 2019I love this show! None like it on tv, hope someone picks it up!
Jul 30, 2018The Last Man on Earth is one frustrating show to pin down. Never have I ever disliked the main protagonist so much, yet I couldn't stop watching him fumble through this bizarre dry-comedy. What do we have here? Is it good, is it bad? No idea... at least I had a few laughs. Adequate enough... well, onto Season 2.
Jan 15, 2018Werid but funny with unusal twists and turns that keep you coming back!
Nov 23, 2017I liked him when he was depressed because that seemed like an unusual take on the post-acopalyptic loner comedy, but then he turned into a total douchebag misogynist. Good luck repopulating the same old bullshit. Couldn't make it past episode 6. At least he didn't force her with a gun to have sex, but he sure acted rapey and manipulative. Kept hoping there'd be some epiphany when he legitimately becomes a better person. If someone tells me later that's what happened then I might give it another shot.
Nov 21, 2017I find this funny and interesting to watch, even though some characters and situations aggravate me I oddly can't seem to stop watching.
Oct 07, 2017This show started out so strong, and then after episode 3 it was just a rerun of people trying to position themselves to get laid. As soon as January Jones entered the picture, the whole premise became about getting into the sack with her. Kristen Schaal is excruciatingly funny and her timing and lines are perfect. As fun as Will Forte starts out in episodes 1-3 he plummets pretty quickly into going full retard, and JJ just... sits with it like it is normal behavior. The show stops exploring the "we're the last people on Earth" and starts with petty squabbling over who gets to fuck who. Instead of exploring the world they are in, and the "last man on Earth" the show just starts introducing new and uninteresting characters (okay Todd is amazing!), but everyone else are just vanilla characters to fight over continuously who gets to screw January Jones' brains out!. Never seen anything start so good and transition so poorly into nothing.
