I have to be HONEST here, I was look forward to watching this and was surely not pleased with the outcome of episode one, so i watched episode 2, then 3 and so on, and I REALLY hated it. The cast, lets face it, leaves you with a bad anger management issue, well for me it leaves me wanting to kill them both. Thank god I'm not one of the last remaining ones with them because I would have killed them by now and gotten away with murder. The main woman is so annoying with her squeeky voice and views, also NO ONE IS THAT DULL. THAT smug arrogant wan*$r of a man needs his private parts cut off, every time i see/hear him on screen I just want to go all hulk on him and SMAAAASHHHHH!

Phil Lord, Chris Miller, and Will Forte's "Last Man On Earth" is a glimpse into the life of a man who finds himself alone at the end of humanity as we know it. This show is hilarious, but also makes us wonder what would WE do under the circumstances? Would we raid the Smithsonian? Use a swimming pool as a toilet? Would we ever get so pathetic as to call a volleyball our best friend? In conclusion: this show rocks.

Turns out Will Forte is one of the smartest, most creative folks to come out of SNL. This show somehow managed to move beyond an impossible setup and become a consistently intriguing series.

First of all - laugh attack hilarious. The last man on earth acts exactly how you'd think a typical man would; driving around the U.S collecting porn, sports memorabilia and Twinkies. The last woman on earth is naggy, annoying, and absolutely perfect for him. I can't wait for more. Bravo Will Forte, you're a g'damn genius.

I absolutely love this show! It's such a funny take on the world's end and Will Forte is a genius! I also love Kristen Schaal and the endearing weirdness of her character. This is definitely one of the best and funniest post-apocalyptic comedy shows there is.

I think I like this. It's quirky and unexpected. I'm not sure why I don't feel I can give it more than three and a half stars though. Perhaps it's because the episodes are short, each one seems as if it's almost a vignette rather than a full episode. It's very amusing and I can relate to so many of the things that Phil does, although perhaps not the toilet pool. I think the thing that is preventing me from giving it a higher rating is that he is so grubby and dirty and it makes my skin itch watching him. Also, so what he doesn't have running water in his current home, MOVE to another part of town. But I'm being picky.

***SPOILER*** The show itself has a lot of potential, although I'm not sure how long they can keep it going as they've had to introduce two other characters and it's only episode three. So we'll have to see if they can stretch it out. Perhaps the writers have other surprises up their sleeves other than him having a selection of women to have sex with? I don't begrudge him it, he is the last man on Earth, but I'm not sure how many jokes can be made about it before it's no longer funny. I really want this show to work though. I'll stick with it for a little while anyway.

The show is pretty cool, but Phil is just such an asshole that it actually becomes annoying to watch, I literally want to punch him in the face every time I see or hear him. The most annoying part is when he suddenly turns into a 'good' person for a couple of minutes at the end of the episode because that doesn't make sense, it's way too out of character for someone like Phil and it's definitely nothing like proper character development.

For me, the best episode still remains the first one Will Forte was the only cast member. As the cast grew in size I felt like the quality dipped as most characters were awful - January Jones' Melissa in particular. A few good guest stars here and there and it did improve in places but I can't say I miss it now it's gone.

I keep watching because I love Kristen Schaal and Will Forte. But in my opinion, the show's biggest drawback is Will Forte's character, Tandy, who in only 1/2 an hour, achieves stratospheric levels of annoyance that are truly hard to bear.

In a real-life end of the world situation, I think a "Tandy" just might have been "accidentally" shot early on with no one wasting too much time feeling badly about it. I know that sounds harsh, but watch one episode from Season 3 and I dare you not to agree with me.

Will Forte is a great comic talent, so I truly cannot understand why he wants to create a character who is so unpleasant to be around. Do we really need to see such painful social awkwardness outlined in blazing neon each week? Yes, Tandy's sweet, yes, he's well meaning and all that being true, he is still VERY uncomfortable to spend time with. I am hoping that Tandy's grating personality is leading up to some big psychological reveal, otherwise, everyday Tandy is just torture for torture's sake.

On the upside, I think the other characters are great. They are endearing, odd enough to be unique and engaging thanks to the good actors playing them. The tone of the show is consistent and funny while the writing is quite good as well; that is when it's not directed at unintentionally exhausting the audience with too much 'Tandy time'. Tone down the "Tandy" and this would be an even better show, a great show.
