You, Me and the Apocalypse

Once more, television breaks my heart. My new favorite tv show, You, Me and the Apocalypse, is not going to get a second season. It wasn’t just my new favorite, it was the first show I’ve truly loved in a long time. Every character, almost every line uttered, all the story lines, I just relished it all. And holy shit, Megan Mullally, I wish I could hand you an Emmy for your character. But everyone did a great job with their characters. EVERYONE. Rob Lowe, who I tend to be on the fence about, was wonderful. (It was mostly British actors, all great.)

If you haven’t watched it, binge watch it. It’s worth it even though we will never learn what happens. We learn enough that you won’t hate me for suggesting this.

In the spirit of the show I’m going to hope for a miracle. Maybe Amazon or Hulu or one of these new producer/networks will pick it up. Thank you though, everyone involved with this series. I enjoyed it immensely.

The crowd in front of St. Patrick’s on Fifth Avenue, on Easter. They also want someone to pick up You, Me and the Apocalypse.

  1. *sound of hair ripping out* YMatA was also our new favourite show! We looked forward to every episode. I thought it was just going to be a one-off, like a mini series, so I was surprised at the ending. And now you say they aren’t going to make any more! 🙁 I agree with you about Rob Lowe too. I am always on the fence about him, but he was so good in the West Wing. I didn’t even recognize Megan Mullally at the start. I also thought it was a hoot every time Diana Rigg channelled Bette Davis. SO nice to watch a show with intelligent writing. I can’t believe some of the shows that get renewed that are so stupid and this one falls by the wayside.

  2. I agree. When my husband and I sat down to watch the first episode, we were hooked even though I was fearful watching the jail scenes and I hated that Rhonda was there. Also, I could not recognize Megan Mullally at first either!The show had a way of making you care about the characters right from the get-go! I loved Jamie’s mother, Dave, and the actor who played Jamie and Ariel honestly made it seem as if you were watching two different actors and I love Rob Lowe always! Amazing writing- full of surprises- and I’m sorry it’s over.
