On the fall finale of The Last Man On Earth, things got quite crazy (crazier than usual). The other Phil Miller (Boris Kodjoe) got appendicitus, and Gail (Mary Steenburgen) had to perform surgery, even though she was NOT a surgeon and was tipsy. Phil flatlined. In the meantime, Mike Miller (Jason Sudeikis) changed his mind about suicide after a new worm was born, so decided to kamikaze to silent Earth. The show ended as he plummeted towards the planet screaming.
The Last Man On Earth 2.11 “Pitch Black” review: Mike Miller makes it! Unfortunately, crashing right into the cruise ship, making it sink. He makes it into the middle of the ocean, and still has to struggle to survive. He has a hallucination of Phil as a kid, and I don’t know where they got this kid, but he channels Will Forte to a tee.
“You’re so stupid you don’t even know your own brother you friggin’ turd!” Classic Phil-ism. That is not the last we see of mini-Phil Miller.
Mike finds a sailboat, and just like his brother, he is not the last man for long. He meets Pat (Mark Boone Junior of SOA) who says that HE is The Last Man On Earth. Pat’s a little crazy though (ok, a lot). Pat has virus-phobia, understandably.
He finally agrees to take him to land, and they cruise in an ice cream truck.
Mike: “I mean, where are all the bodies?” Thank you!
He shows him a staging area of bodies upon bodies, and describes in detail the symptoms of the virus – “every hole” (blood and brain juice).
Then they play a little tennis of course. Who wouldn’t?
Mike wants to stay on land so Pat knocks him out… twice. Does he kidnap Mike and drag him back to the boat? Or does Mike escape to follow the ‘Alive in Tucson” signs?
We have to wait for next week (I think) to see what happened to our little group. This episode was really good. I liked following the adventures of Mike, and Sudeikis playing serious-funny is perfect for this dark comedy.
The Last Man On Earth airs Sunday nights at 9:30pm ET on FOX.
