Fall TV 2015 Follow Up – The Last Man on Earth

September 29, 2015 By

The season picks up not long after the last one left off. Survivor Phil Miller (Will Forte) seems to have learned at least something of a lesson as he is not such a chronic liar and guy who makes his situation go from bad to worse constantly. He’s back on the move, driving a stealth bomber around Washington DC with the always sunny Carol Pilbasian (Kristen Schaal). The series didn’t check in with the other survivors of the still unnamed virus that wiped out humanity they left in Tucson but everything about the episode pointed to the fact that they eventually will.

The one new element of the show that was basically only teased in the Season 1 finale was that of Miller’s brother, unnamed but played by Jason Sudeikis. Sudeikis’s character is stuck in space with only worms for company. He is clearly cracking up and has no knowledge of any survivors on earth at this point. Mentions are made of an escape pod/shuttle/ whatever so hopefully it isn’t too long before Sudeikis gets to join the rest of the cast.

I sense a little brotherly rivalry, Miller always being upstaged by his brother the astronaut, similar like he was upstaged by the second Phil Miller to show up in season one.
