On a side note, he picked a shitty place to live. I know it is where he was raised, but it's the fucking desert. After two years, he is likely tapping out the nearby stores of fresh bottled water. His hose solution won't last long.

Anywhere else in the country with a steadier supply of rain would be a better place to set up shop.

I think thats actually part of the plan to keep it fresh. Eventually he will have to leave.

Yeah...
At some points, Phil seemed as if he'd have quite a few sheep hanging around if possible...

The implication is that the virus worked VERY fast to kill off humanity because no one apparently even had time to raid stores for provisions. As for where the bodies are, I think it's a budget issue. Cheaper to not litter every scene with rotting corpses and skeletons. And this is a major network comedy, so littering scenes with corpses might have been a bit too dark. "LOL, Phil is having trouble getting those bodies into a mass grave!!!"

As for animals, no clue. Phil and Carol are now talking about gardening, but there is no mention of hunting. And no wild animals scavenging the towns with Phil. No mention of Phil carrying a gun for protection from possible wild animals (just for fun).

Maybe this super virus killed off (almost) every complex organism on the planet?

I actually was thinking the virus happened slow so it was easy getting a huge chunk of the population into quarantine zones.

I think you covered all the pertinent reasoning; it was just odd, once you sit and think about it...

So far I'm quite enjoying the show.
I also feel that 25 mins are pretty much the perfect amount of time to give it.
More would make it get a bit tiresome.

I am greatly enjoying to be able to watch these two people, trying to live in a post-humanity/animal world.

One completely goes off the rails, the other desperately holding onto a remnant of rules and such.

Saw episode 3, then 1 and 2. I'm hoping he can get a piece of that January Jones...and then as he's such an Everyman, vicariously enjoy his fun... But I doubt he will.

Watched the first two episodes, gonna watch the third tonight.

It's really funny. I agree with Necro that 25 min. is the perfect length for this. I have no idea how they can sustain it but that's part of the fun, I think.

I like how Phil goes from being desperately lonely to completely sick of Carol in the span of a few minutes.

The humor can get very dark. Like when Phil starts to make out with the mannequin, or when he's doing the role call of his "friends" at the bar... It's funny but also really sad, especially when they flash back to before the plague or whatever and you see he was a normal dude.

For the sake of more genetic diversity, he has to impregnate them both. Granted, it seems likely we'll see more and more people show up soon.
