Congratulations to The Last Man On Earth returning for Season 2! Let’s see what Phil Miller (Will Forte) and the gang have been up to, before we get into the review for this week’s doubleheader, 1.9 “The Do-Over” and 1.10 “Pranks For Nothing.”

Two weeks ago, during The Last Man On Earth’s 1.7 “She Drives Me Crazy” and 1.8 “Mooovin’In,” Phil had made some progress with Melissa (January Jones) by just being honest. I don’t know why he cannot get this through his thick skull. This made him even more jealous of Todd (Mel Rodriguez). He just did not understand how someone could move past outer beauty to the inner beauty. The foursome create some sort of government complete with grievance board. And… Phil found a real live cow! Although Phil really wanted burgers and steaks, he was outvoted in favor of fresh milk and dairy products. On top of everything else, Carol (Kristen Schaal) really wants them to live together.

The Last Man On Earth 1.9 “The Do-Over” & 1.10 “Pranks For Nothing” review:

“Aw Phil. Sleep apnea is a part of who I am. Just like dandruff and aggressive night toots are a part of who you are.”

That right there is really what marriage is all about. Carol has that correct. But Phil doesn’t seem to understand. As is obvious in the title, Phil wants a do-over and asks God for one. God seems to listen by delivering…

Spoilers if you have not seen the episode yet! Do not continue reading if that is the case!

I don’t even have to tell you how Phil messes this up. It is his dishonesty that does him in every time.

God delivered Mary Steenburgen and Cleopatra Coleman into the mix. What do you think Phil did with that deliverance? There were no banjos involved, that’s for sure. They came upon him alone, and he tried to make it stay that way. Which of course, could never work out. Carol sent him to “find his smile.” And he certainly did… for a little while. Poor idealistic Carol and Todd. Melissa was not in the least bit surprised.

And then there were 6… plus a cow.

I am as unsurprised as Melissa that this show was renewed for a second season. The Phil being a moron who keeps putting his foot in his mouth does get irksome, but the continual adding of characters one and two at a time, is like a birthday present every episode.

Plus… Mary Steenburgen!

FOX’s press release for The Do-Over:

PHIL GETS A SIGN FROM GOD IN “THE LAST MAN ON EARTH” SUNDAY, APRIL 12, ON FOX
