If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/19/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight! [Sidenote from Jenny: Today unbelievably marks the 20-year mark since the Alfred P. Murrah Building bombing in Oklahoma City. I was a senior in high school, living 45 minutes from OKC, when it happened and I remember it clearly. My brother’s good friend lost her mother that day, so it affected us more than some. Please, take a moment today to remember those 168 people–including 19 children–and say a prayer or send a good thought into the universe that something like that never happens again.]

Kyle’s Choice

lastmanonearth419smallI have been thoroughly enjoying the awkward squirm-fest that is The Last Man on Earth. Phil Miller is a despicable person, and just when you think he’s reached his lowest, he manages to do something even worse. Last week, Phil was out shopping for Carol. Once again regretting his rash decision to get married, he pleaded with God for a do-over. And God seemingly responded immediately, as a vehicle drove up and two women stepped out (played by Cleopatra Coleman and Mary Steenburgen). Phil decided to keep these new survivors to himself, putting them up in a hotel and telling them he was the only other survivor. Phil even went so far as to tell them a story about his dead wife Carol.

Later that evening, Phil, Gail, and Erica were heading out to do some skinny-dipping when they crossed paths with Carol, Melissa, and Todd — and the jig was up. Phil now found himself universally hated and ignored by the other five survivors. After several more lies to try to explain his actions, he finally came clean about everything, saying it was a mistake to have married Carol so quickly. Carol eventually decided to forgive Phil and grant him a divorce.

Has Phil finally turned a new leaf? How long will this honest Phil last, or will he just go right back to his deceptive ways? Have Gail and Erica forgiven him — and will they pursue him once again now that he is truly a bachelor? This show is so much fun. It’s painfully awkward to watch (in a good way) Phil’s horrible antics backfire miserably. I’m so happy this series has already been renewed for a second season, because there are just 3 episodes left this season, including tonight’s episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Moved To Tampa,” with Phil and Carol’s post-pandemic world slowly expanding as they explore their surroundings, try new things, and grow accustomed to a lifestyle without restrictions or societal boundaries, they head into their uncertain future together.

To see what antics Phil gets up to tonight, tune in to FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Once Upon a Time, American Odyssey, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Veep, Nurse Jackie, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
