The Last Man On Earth
Thursday, One, 8.30pm
Anything starring Will Forte (left) is worth a gander. The former Saturday Night Live star and sometimes serious actor – he was excellent in the Oscar-nominated movie
Nebraska – holds his own in this comedy. It’s a fantastically clever setup, as Phil (Forte) finds himself the “last man on Earth” after an apocalyptic event. As time has gone on, though, more people have shown up, complicating what, at the start, seemed would be a simple life. Tonight, Phil tries to talk about repopulation with his wife Carol (Kirsten Schaal), whom he only married because he believed they were the only two people left on the planet, and Melissa (January Jones) the outrageously attractive newcomer.
