Surprisingly, there's a lot of creative mileage to be had from poking at the genre without totally upending it.

Forte - either by design all along or in reaction to Season 1 responses - consciously injects what was missing from Season 1 into the first two episodes of Season 2, but he does so without upsetting an alluring, already-established tone and world.

The show is often so clever that it should satisfy those who require only a morsel of heart (or none at all) in their entertainment.

The show's original concept and the comedic sensibility of Forte, its series creator and star, give us confidence that the series will retain the funny, no matter which direction it ends up going.

I can see this being a big turn off for a mainstream audience, but I love just how far they're going here with pushing the boundaries of a what you'd see in a half hour network sitcom.

"Is There Anybody Out There?" very wisely returns to [its previous] mode, but with the added bonus of Phil having essentially turned Carol around to his ridiculous old way of living.

No matter how grim the circumstances, people find a way to get through -- and these last people on earth (and in space) are about to once again prove that week after week with,... humor and heart.

It's become warmer and more inviting without losing what made it special.

If we're going to be spending one-on-one time with Phil on such a small scale, we're going to need a little bit more growth to work with here - or we'd better go find Carol, ASAP.

The Last Man on Earth Season 2 Episode 1 was a very successful season opener that leaned on the series' undisputed strength - the amazing chemistry between Will Forte and Kristen Schaal.

Super Reviewer


Thanks to Forte and Schaal, the Last Man on Earth is packed with drama and excitement. Can be a little bit over the top sometimes but still worth watching if you enjoyed the first season.
