The Season Finale of The Last Man on Earth
I don't always do this for individual episodes of television shows, but I just wanted to talk about the first season finale of The Last Man on Earth which was the best episode of television I'd seen since, well, the pilot of The Last Man on Earth. Despite the tiresome cavalcade of new cast members the show trotted out over the course of the season, the finale managed to bring it back to basics and send Phil and Carol (Will Forte and Kristen Schaal) back out on their own, to celebrate the true premise of the show. But the ending scene is what did it for me. It was revealed that Jason Sudeikis plays Phil's brother and he is currently stuck at the International Space Station, alive. What a plot twist! It was the greatest reveal in television history, I believe.
