News & Interviews for You, Me and the Apocalypse: Series 1
The world is ending. How funny is that? Pretty darn funny, at least as depicted in You, Me and the Apocalypse.
Evil must-see plot on our collective unconscious or not, You, Me and the Apocalypse is a genuine treat.
As end-of-the-world tales go, it's watchable, fairly unpredictable and garnished with a palpable subplot that in some ways is more intriguing than whatever the end game might be.
Comedy or drama, stars or non-stars, half-hour or an hour, the show doesn't fit snugly into a preexisting mold, and that's always a plus. So call it whatever you like: It's still good, no matter what.
Quirky, uneven oddball that will appeal to a few. Best to wait for all episodes to stream and go ahead and binge.
There may not have ever been a good show buried in all these misfiring elements, but even so, Hollands has picked a poor way to tell his story.
You, Me and the Apocalypse surprised me at nearly every turn -- the characters shine, the plot is a bottle rocket, the scope is epic, and the tricky balance between quirky visual gags and tragic poignancy is downright masterful.
Give the series credit, each episode keeps upping the weirdness, comedy and, surprisingly, the dramatic ante. It's unexpectedly good.
Iain Hollands' apocalyptic British-American co-production quickly reveals itself to be something really quite sharp and as capable of moving the viewer as it is making them giggle.
Instead, the threat of humanity's doom is what motivates each person to finally begin a new chapter in their lives. The show definitely has promise, and I'm in for the ride.
Audience Reviews for You, Me and the Apocalypse: Series 1
Jan 03, 2021Utterly pointless show - ends on a cliffhanger that can never be resolved because they killed the show. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME
Jan 18, 2018Loved this show. Really wish they could make a second season it ended with so many questions.
Mar 01, 2017The summary of the show looked kind or corny but gave it a chance because of the ratings and was definitely surprised. Funny and endearing at times I wholeheartedly recommend it.
Sep 11, 2016What the hell were they thinking by not renewing this show!? I'm outraged!
Sep 07, 2016Witty Comedy about the end of the world, and the possible societal reactions to their knowledge of it.
Sep 01, 2016Nooo!! Why is there not a second season. Like Pushing Daisies, we are left with unfinished business because of the decision of some heartless, soulless production executive. Be a dear, now, and give us some bloody closure!
Aug 17, 2016Not finish the first one. Good ironic tone!
Jul 12, 2016Love, love, love this show. I cannot believe they canceled it.
Jun 21, 2016If they had worked on more actual comedic content instead of desperately cramming in every uber-liberal political issue going they might have had a winning show that had many seasons behind it..... instead i felt like i was watching something made by film students at socialism camp. Comedy should be edgy, confrontational and filled with crippling honesty but when you use it as a political tool to push virtually every 'hashtag trendy' agenda it feels contrived and it became tiring. Summary: YES i get it about racism/sexism/transgenderism and gay, black mongolian muslim athiests who want an abortion because of free speech, gun control and the killing of baby seals while the amazon is being cut down....i get all that shit on the news ALL the time. Just try comedy next time!? (See: Everything from Monty Python to Father Ted or I.T. Crowd for doing it right!)
Apr 27, 2016love it! Rob Lowe is the cutest priest I have ever seen and while very funny, also has some interesting things to say about people
