There are some reviews where I just want to write “that was fine” and move on. Some shows just aren’t doing anything particularly remarkable or interesting, but they make for a moderately entertaining way of passing 43 minutes of my day. “You, Me and the Apocalypse” fits right into that mold. It’s not reinventing any wheels or doing anything distinct, but it does bring a quirky tone to a dire situation, making for a fun hour of television which could easily turn into an enjoyable miniseries.
After a few hours of waiting, I was finally seated for the day’s taping of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” The studio’s look told me it was going to be a special episode, and I was in for a fun hour-and-a-half.
