I'm definitely gonna DVR it, but really bad scheduling move putting this opposite the Walking Dead.

Just remember to give this one higher priority, since as a network show it's one and done, whereas Walking Dead has several repeats throughout the week.

Fox is hoping the counter-programming will steal a few viewers away.

I really liked it, especially for a first episode. Good chemistry between those two, IMO.

That was absolutely hilarious. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much at a pilot. "It was probably a raccoon."

Casting Kristen Schaal is absolutely brilliant. Love the casting choice. Will probably check out the next few episodes.

I think she's Alexandra Daddario. Although she's not credited in IMDB. She looks like the girl in S08E04 It's always sunny in Philadelphia.

If that is all you know her for then you are sadly missing out.

Bingo! I knew I knew her. Another reason to love True Detective so very much.

So he was the last man on earth for like one episode and then, shenanigans. I still enjoyed it. I wish they would have spent more that one episode with him on his own.

Yeah, I would have liked at least a few episodes seeing him treasure hunting and enjoying being the last man on Earth before it started to weigh on him. I think they could have explored the aloneness more before introducing another human.

I thought it was good though and will keep the season recording.

this is likely to be my reaction, and the spoiler i was pissed about. i absolutely loathe her. she ruined 30 rock and she's just grating to me. so we'll see how it goes in this show. not sure i can tolerate her as a lead.

Well, he is the last male on Earth, so technically the title is correct. I enjoyed the first two episodes, but as someone said, I wonder how sustainable of a series this is. It heavily relies on the interaction of just two people without any guest stars.

This is exactly how I felt. Although I did make it to the end of the second episode.
