Last Man On Earth... Not Really

Image Source:
In case any of you haven't taken notice of this newer comedy series, you are missing out. The Last Man On Earth is perhaps one of the most unique and original shows that I've seen. It is about the life and adventures of the last man on earth, Phil Miller. The first couple episodes are genuinely about literally the last guy. There even is a tribute dedicated to Tom Hank's performance in Castaway

The only problem I have with this show is that Phil Miller isn't really the last man on Earth. As the episodes progress more and more characters are introduced, one of which being another man. Why would the director introduce another man into the mix? The show is called the last man on Earth. I suppose it is meant to cause strife among the community for Phil, but it kind of defeats the purpose. 

Perhaps Phil Miller isn't truly the last man after all. Maybe something will happen to this other man, or maybe something will happen to Phil. Only time will tell.

While there are plenty of societal jokes and strokes of mankind inevitable laughter, I'm still half impressed with this show. Even though I do enjoy watching it from time to time.
