'The Last Man on Earth' Will Be Mid-Season Replacement for Fox next Season

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | February 13, 2014 | Comments ()


Welcome survivors of the ice storm! They gave it a name, but it was silly, so we’re going to call it Winter Storm Zombie Virus. Who knows what’s actually in that white death sprinkling from above? It could be a genetically engineered zombie virus designed to annihilate the American population while we go about our days, shoveling our walks, digging out our cars. And the first responders will be out in it of course, and anyone upon whom infrastructure depends. If you think about it, a winter storm is the perfect delivery mechanism for zombie virus. So think of your children before you dig your car out.

And if you live blissfully alone, looking out on the wasteland of white, don’t you feel like the last person on earth? Oh, that was the lead-in:

So you see that headline up there? Let me give you the appropriate amount of time to go insane and get excited.
Perfect! Didn’t that feel great! Remember that feeling and hold on to it when you read the next sentence: “The Last Man on Earth” is a sitcom starring Will Forte that has no relation to “Y: The Last Man”.

Isn’t it amazing how the human soul can hit the heights of ecstasy and the darkest lows of oblivion from one moment to the next? The Germans probably have a word for it, since as with the Eskimo’s apocryphal words for snow, they have several dozen words for the types of emotional pain. And that word probably literally translates as “feeling Russian”.

Oh, but the header image? The explanation for that is that I’m an asshole and I have to go shovel my driveway.

So, Sochi, Just What Is That Place? | The Unpublicized Resolutions to Five Sensationalized Celebrity Sex and Violence Scandals

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    In Sri Lanka we would call you "il Bastardo" which admittedly is Italian and is not spoken in Sri Lanka... but it doesn't make it any less true.... il bastardo

  • Anna von Beav

    You are LITERALLY The Worst.

  • googergieger

    I recently reread Y a few months ago. Three or four months ago? Something like that. Hindsight? A little overrated. Think I should reread 100 Bullets and/or Transmetropolitan, and see how those hold up. Though right now am busy reading a lot of awful fantasy books.

  • Lauren_Lauren

    STEVEN! That was downright TK-esque of you.

  • Caspar Marcus

    The German word you are looking for is: Himmelhochjauchzendzutodebetrübt

  • Wrestling Fan


    I feel so betrayed...

    *muffled sob*

  • TK

    I like the cut of your jib, Wilson.

  • mswas

    I think that's called Farfegnugen.

  • Fabius_Maximus


    It's actually several words, and we have Goethe to thank for them:

    "Himmelhoch jauchzend, zum Tode betrübt".

  • cox

    i love it when you speak dirty

  • MrMinion

    Literally: feeling like cheering to heaven and grieving to hell at the same time.

  • RipCity


  • John G.

    I know nothing about Y:The Last Man, so I was not disappointed by this news. I am a big sucker for anything post-apocalyptic at all. So, still excited. There, SLW, take that.

  • narfna

    You are the worst. You are the Britta of Pajiba.

  • Stephen Nein

    I hope you pipes freeze. Including your sewer line. Because there is no finer revenge than having your neighbors' toilet violently back up on him after his morning dump. #fuckiowanice.

  • DarthCorleone

    That wasn't cool.

  • bastich

    Nice one, sir! You got me there!

    I'm now gonna go sulk outside...in 49-degree weather....with sunny skies and no white crap on the ground.

    (*sigh*) It's a hard old life.

  • John W

    Well played....

  • I think I speak for at least half the Pajiba audience when I say...


  • abell

    You sure as dick speak for me.

  • emmalita

    Between this and slapping at the creationists on the Sochi post you are just on fire. You let your inner bitch run free.

  • lowercase_ryan

    you son of a B...

  • manting

    I for one am happy because FOX would totally ruin Y:The Last Man.

  • space_oddity

    I reacted exactly as you predicted and hate you for it.

  • BlackRabbit

    Your words are bad and you should feel bad.

  • You shovel that driveway, you bitch. You get every flake. And I hope your nose runs and runs.
