You, Me and the Apocalypse: The Curious Events Leading To Slough!

you-me-and-the-apocalypse-key-art

You, Me and The Apocalypse (NBC, Thursdays, 8/7C) is a ten-episode dramedy that follows an incredibly disparate group of people through the last thirty-four days before a giant comet strikes the planet, turning humanity into the latest version of the dinosaurs (i.e.: extinct). The series – a US/British co-production – melds both countries senses of humor beautifully and sets that humor against some disturbingly grounded drama.

The series premiere, Who Are These People?, sets up three distinct arcs featuring six characters whose last days on Earth will lead to even more characters – all intriguing and each with their own story.

In thirty-five days the world will end – and around the world, events are leading a handful of very disparate individuals to a bunker beneath Slough, England.

Me, You & The Apocalypse takes every cliche about end-of-the-world movies and spins them in wildly divergent directions. It premieres on Thursday, January 28th (8/7C). Check out the trailer after the break.

Parks and Recreation [NBC, Thursdays, 9:30/8:30C] is one of those shows that I found remarkably unfunny when it premiered and consistently managed to not amuse me on those rare occasions when I’d check to see if it had a pulse – so I was surprised when a screener of the show’s next episodes arrived and I found myself laughing. Frequently.
