I haven’t been keeping up with my blog and I apologize. Been so busy just chasing my tail. LOL!
Actually, I am in the middle of spring cleaning and minor repairs, but I have also been doing some reading, watching new TV shows and catching a few movies.
I’ve also been doing some knitting, crocheting, sewing, and playing around with the new gadget I got for my birthday. I’ve been missing the creative side of my gift shop (that I closed down in 2011) and have been considering getting back into designing custom gift baskets and party sets to sell on Etsy.
As for writing….Hmm…I’ve got a dozen or more projects started, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I decided I should do some reviews and today I will start with a new TV show called,
Did you watch it? What did you think?
Last man on earth is a comedy about, you guessed it, the last man on earth. It takes place in 2020 and there’s a virus that wipes out all of civilization. PHIL MILLER played by Will Forte drives around the U.S. in a giant R.V. looking for any signs of life before settling in a mansion in AZ, which he fills with expensive art and whatever he pleases. Last man on earth had its funny parts, but not a lot of substance. In fact the entire hour long premiere could have been made into a movie and done with.
Working on a post-apocalyptic novel myself for the past two years, I found, Last man on earth, left me with a lot of questions and not many answers.
First, the story felt rushed. The character’s were a bit flat and predictable. Characters, you ask? Yes. Phil stumbles upon a crazy woman named Carol, played by Kristen Schaal. I would have liked Phil’s ordeal dealt with in more detail before they introduced Carol, but then I didn’t write the script.
Second, there were a couple of things that just didn’t make sense to me. How did Phil drive all around the U.S. in a giant RV, which doesn’t get good gas mileage, without stopping for gas? I know you’re saying, “How do you know he didn’t stop for gas?” Hold that thought.
Why were there no dead bodies? If this was caused by a virus, wouldn’t there be bodies lying around?
Why was there no water or electricity? Did someone shut everything off before they died and disappeared?
Back to the gas question, you can’t pump gas without electricity. 🙂 The pumps won’t work.
The Walking Dead is more plausible, even with Zombies.
I can’t say yay or nay at this point. I’ll watch one more episode and see how it goes.
Now some questions for you.
If you found yourself the last man, or woman, on earth, what would you do?
Would you find the fanciest house to live in?
Would you become a daredevil trying things you wouldn’t have tried before?
Or would you be more careful knowing that there weren’t others to help you if you got sick or injured?
Would you lock all the doors even though you are supposedly the last person?
I’ll be sharing another review in a day or two about a gift I received for my birthday.
Till then… HUGS!
