PROS of Last Man on Earth

  • lots of character development
  • great female characters
  • fairly diverse cast
  • beautiful apocalypse scenery
  • lots of dirty gross-out jokes but very few offensive ones
  • may-december interracial romance between 2 women where the black woman is the younger, girlier and ‘softer’ one
  • a plotline where a woman refuses to have a baby even though there are only a handful of people left on earth and this is presented as the right course of action/her bodily autonomy is presented as important
  • mental illness storyline that doesn’t demonize mentally ill people
  • found family!!!

CONS of Last Man on Earth

  • had Mary Steenburgen and a DeLorean in the same scene and inexplicably didn’t make a joke about it
