The Last Man On Earth

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

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.
