Ever since the show got cancelled, I’ve been thinking what kind of characters they might have added if the show kept going.
-A teenage boy and his mother. The mother is trying to give her son a normal life even though everyone else is dead, but he’s too busy going through a goth phase.
-The prime minister of a European country who pretends he still has power. Holds “summits” with the skeletons of other EU officials.
-A sixty year old man, bedridden with some form of cancer, who has been trapped in his hospital for years.
-A depressed college dude who finds a US Nuclear silo and proceeds to go around destroying major cities for fun (he’s the final villain lol)
I’m 100% fine with it though. At one point Tandy says “Bigly” obviously ironic. And in another episode Pamela is talking to “Alana” which is supposed to be Alexa, and it says “President Pence” insulating Trump was either impeached or died.
Would you add/remove characters? Move them back to America? Explain the virus better/show more scenes from during the pandemic? Change the pacing? Have more/less conflict?
I've seen every episode of Last man on earth at least 5 times through it's many high points and the few lows and it's easily in one of my top 10 shows of all time. The cancellation is such a bummer and there's just so little out there like it that I'm legitimately lonesome without the gang.
There is a show on TBS that reminds me of The Last man on Earth and it's season 3 premiere tonight had me feeling those old TMLOE vibes. I'm on a serious high that I haven't felt since my weekly Last Man on Earth premiere parties my friends and I would have every new episode.
I'd highly recommend a watch if you love last man on earth. It isn't exactly the same but some of the actors have crossed paths in other good shows, Carol was in Flight of the Concords with at least one of the other characters on Wrecked and I feel it takes a few hints from last man on earth with it's premise, goofiness and editing.
Without giving too much away it's a show about a stranded group of plane crash survivors on an island. I've heard it described as Lost meets Naked Gun which I mostly agree with.
I hate to admit it, but I think it's starting to surpass my favor of Last Man on Earth due to it's lack of subpar or downright bad episodes and all of the cast contributes comedically instead of it mostly focusing on Tandy insanity(which is actually mostly why I love TMLOE)
Sorry for the long unrelated post but I'm seriously in such a great mood and instantly thought of you guys and hope if any of you out there haven't succumbed to the virus yet, you'll get the cure with Wrecked.
and despite shopping around nobody wanted to revive it...so will forte just dropped what would have happened in the final season
just how did we get here? I Mean this wasn't the most expensive show to produce and yet nobody picked it up....nobody acknowledged it
it says a lot when no streaming service or network wants to touch your show after it's canned despite the potential being there for a good investment and as i said since the series wasn't that expensive to produce compared to other shows that did continue or were rescued
You'd figure someone would pick up but nope....instead we gotta deal with ABC Clinging to the corpse of the roseanne series because they still think it can be salvaged and fox humping tim allen's leg for last man standing
