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

Top Critic

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.

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.

Trimming the fat of the secondary cast and nonsensical humor is all this show needed.

Mar 10, 2020 | Full Review…

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.

Apr 12, 2016 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 28, 2015 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 28, 2015 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

"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.

Sep 28, 2015 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 28, 2015 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

As long as The Last Man on Earth keeps this level of storytelling up for the rest of the season, I will have no complaints.

Audience Reviews for The Last Man on Earth: Season 2

    that mike plot twist was sooo. good
  • Aug 08, 2017
    An often improved sophomore year for the series (give-or-take some stretches in the middle), that succeeds at being as surprising as it is hilarious. Instead of falling into the pitfall of continuing to have Will Forte's slacker protagonist be unlikable, his character gets a believable re-haul this year and miraculously comes off as sympathetic. In fact, it may even further shock viewers to find that the rest of the characters do some rather amoral things to each other this season, but it causes for more dynamic storylines. Hell, the show even makes great use of being on network TV by finding ways to subvert the ridiculous FCC limitations (apparently there can be now thrusting during sex scenes) by always finding a way to make it part of the series awkward/wacky sense of humor. One of TV's sharpest and most imaginative comedies, and for my money it's a better time in the post-apocalypse than The Walking Dead could ever hope to be.

    Einfach großartige Comedy!

    I really want to like this show. Will Forte is hilarious. I can feel his humor throughout the show, but it really only works for him. When he, and the writers, choose to ascribe hypocritical or egotistical desires to other characters, it actually infuriates me.

    Interests declined as the season progressed bt captured my attention again as the season came to a end
  • Nov 25, 2016
    Another amazing season by last man on earth!

    Absolutely The Worst Show On Sunday Nights! Horrible writing!
  • Jul 18, 2016
    I don't know why the hell am I still watching this show :/
  • May 29, 2016
    Feels like the show is losing it touch in just its second season.
  • May 24, 2016
    Good, consistant plot throughout. Kind of annoying though.
