I’m pretty sure The Last Man on Earth is cancelled for good, but if you found any info that suggests otherwise, that’d make my day. I was really hoping for a pickup by a streaming service. Apparently, Will Forte said they had a plan to wrap up the series in 10 episodes, but didn’t get the half season renewal. The main cast was going to gain the trust of the masked survivors in Mexico and then accidentally kill them all off since they are carriers of the virus.

Did a little Googling and found nothing about it getting picked up. Sad day. Maybe it will get the Arrested Development treatment and in a couple years someone will give it another season to wrap it up. Not a huge fan of how Forte says they were going to end it because that doesn't really end it. Even he says they didn't know how to finish the series but this was how they were going to deal with these new people, which isn't a very satisfying or "final" final.

It would be totally morbid but I think the only way to end the series that would be satisfying would be to kill off everyone but Tandy so that he truly winds up as The Last (known) Man on Earth and go back to the beginning of the series with him traveling around to find more people. Or maybe following through on driving his truck into a rock to kill himself.

If I had a complaint about the show, it was that the humor was slow to develop. I would go weeks without watching it and let new episodes accumulate on my DVR until I was in the right mood to watch them. I can see why it was cancelled, but I will miss it. It was unique.

The show hasn't been picked up, so it's basically done. Forte said the plan was they'd live in the bunker, the bunker-people would die save for a guest star, and that's about it. They didn't have a plan for anything further.

It was the best show on television, as far as I'm concerned.

Am I supposed to be impressed with the bottle flipping in the subway commercials? Cause I'm not impressed.

The problem was that they tried to market it as a zany comedy. It could be that sometimes but that's not what is was at the core. So people and critics tuned in expecting a zany comedy and when they didn't get that, they turned it off.

Ya, read the story in the paper about that family and their popularity a couple weeks ago. This is seriously the sort of thing people watch on the internet for entertainment? These people know there are things out there that are actually entertaining, right?

I also thought Will Forte’s character was too far out there. I get that he’s supposed to be a decent, but flawed human being, but some of the Tandy gags dragged on for too long (and this is from a big Macgruber fan).

So in addition to having a low jokes / minute ratio, some jokes went on for too long, IMO. Still, I praise them for being different and making a difficult concept work within the confines of a network sitcom.

Ya, the Tandy stuff was real hit or miss. What I find interesting is that he is the only character that grew during the series. Everyone else is the same person as when they showed up but Tandy went from a real piece of crap to a decent human being.

I recall Forte saying throughout LMOE that the only thing holding up MacGruber 2 was he didn't have time due to the show. At this point I thought for sure Mac2 would be in the works.

I also found LMOE killer funny at times, with long dumb stretches in between. Pretty much the last season (in Mexico) was a waste of time IMHO. Of course, now I'd like to see more about all the people from underground, but it doesn't seem like it's going to happen.

Mac2uber needs to happen. The original was such a gem.

If I order a pizza and there is a $3 delivery charge AND I tip 10% on the bill when I pay online, do I still need to tip the driver?

Not in my opinion.

You only need to tip once. But I wouldn't add a tip online, and would tip the driver directly instead.

This is what I usually do. There is no guarantee your tip will get into the driver's hands otherwise.

I'm in a chili cookoff against the boss on Tuesday. Originally the winner would get nothing, and that's stupid. So I suggested the loser has to wash the winner's vehicle. I ordered fancy spices 2+ weeks ago, but they're not going to show up on time. I usually just wing cooking, but this time I was going to follow a recipe from a world cookoff winner, but I guess now I can't. So now I'm thinking I'll use some vodka to help the tomatoes along with some Korean chili flakes (not hot).
