    I'm still watching because it's *interesting*. Not really funny, just this story (slowly) unfolding about these folks is worth watching. Since anyone can expire on this show there is no guarantee any regular will be around forever.

  2. It is beyond stupid, but I still watch it.

    The last episode was great, such a great pleasure and surprise to see Wiig do such a great job . . . hope we get to see more of her.

    It was great to see Kristen and how The Last Man on Earth began with the virus.

    I'll miss this show when it's over.

    I thought Kristen was great in this episode. I enjoyed her catty exchanges with Laura Dern.

    I totally missed that it was Laura Dern. I might watch that part again.

    Her character reminded me of Tandy with the lame, awkward jokes. Maybe there's a connection?

    I liked how when time was passing when the virus started they kept showing a succession of Presidential funerals, starting with Pence and down the line, including Paul Ryan and a few others I never heard of before.

    I'm thinking either they're related or maybe they'll end up together eventually.

    Good observation. That didn't occur to me. I bet they end up competing with each other for "class clown" and drive everyone else nuts (similar to the sibling rivalry with his astronaut brother).

    So this all ties back to all those times the drone showed up... so if she is just now going to try and find them at the house, they'll be gone no?

    Yes. I can't remember, were they going any place in particular when they ended up finding the office building they are now at?

    No, they came across the office building by accident. They abandoned their house on the ocean because they thought that crazy guy was after them. I think they thought - and they led us to believe - the drone was sent by the three guys that came ashore at the end of the season before last.

    Man, for a simple show, it can be a bit complicated to explain. (I didn't even try to articulate the part about the graffiti inside the house and Tandy's plot to make Todd feel better about killing the crazy guy even though he knew he killed him and then discovered he hadn't killed him and then discovered his body was missing . . .)

    Yeah, I knew they (or rather, Melissa) found the office building by accident when they stopped for a rest somewhere. I just couldn't remember if they had any destination in mind when they left the ocean front house.

    If you're not paying attention, you'll be lost. Great job putting all that together. :righton:

    I though that the misdirection with the drone was brilliant. We assumed it was John Hamm and the other guys on the boat, but that was never confirmed or even alluded to by those guys. This show has it's flaws (the Australian woman pregnant with the FIRST new child has become like a non-character) but it's really got something going on. Finding comedy in the most devastating and utterly hopeless situation is pretty bold. It's also on Fox, so there's only so much they can do. It would have been better on HBO or FX,
    I think.

    Yep. It was predictable before it happened but I still laughed and felt pity at the same time.

    When someone is billed as a guest star on this show, you know they're going to kick the bucket.

    This last week's episode was great. Waiting to see what happens now that the elevator door has opened.

    Glad I didn't notice that.

    Maybe I'm the only one, but I didn't see it coming.
