It’s (almost) the end of the world on ‘No Tomorrow’
In “No Tomorrow,” Evie is young woman who hates her boss and herjob. She supervises a shipping crew in the warehouse for an Amazon-like company.
While taking a break from her boyfriend, Evie has a brief encounter with Xavier, a guy her friend describes as “a stranger that you can project all your softcore fantasies on.
Fate intervenes to bring them together again, and Evie learns he believes the world will end in eight months and 12 days. A former science magazine copy editor, Xavier read about an asteroid that was going to flypast Earth. He tells Evie he recalculated the flight path and has come to the conclusion that the asteroid will actually crash into Earth.
No one believes him, though, nor can he explain how he got his computational abilities. Xavier quits his job and begins living like the world is going to end. Whether he is crazy or not, doesn’t matter to Evie. He’s what she needs in her dull life. Soon, she is doing things she never thought she could do,
Like “Jane the Virgin,” also on the network, “No Tomorrow” is adaptation of a Latin American series.The fantasy-dramedy is cute enough, though it doesn’t have the endearing daffiness of “Jane.”
Tori Anderson and Joshua Sasse, who play Evie and Xavier, have a nice chemistry. Not everything goes swimmingly for the characters, of course, but even so it’s difficult to see how long this can go on — let alone make it eight months and 12 days.
