Sasse & Anderson in No Tomorrow

On this episode we are previewing The CW’s new romantic comedy No Tomorrow. It stars Tori Anderson (Killjoys), Joshua Sasse (Galavant), Sarayu Blue (Monday Mornings), Jonathan Langdon (Special Correspondents movie), Jesse Rath (Defiance) and Amy Pietz (Caroline in the City).

No Tomorrow is based on a Brazilian show called How to Enjoy the End of the World, which was nominated for an International Emmy. It follows a woman who appreciates order so much that when she makes a list, “make a list” is both the first thing on the list and the first thing crossed off of it. But, living such a regimented life isn’t always that great. Her most recent relationship has seemingly come to an end and she gets no love for her career aspirations from her petty tyrant of a boss. She then meets a charming and free-spirited guy who she is immediately attracted to and the chemistry is electric. He brings some unexpected joy and romance into her life and attempts to get her to break out of her rut and seize the day. But, it turns out that he lives his life that way because he believes the apocalypse is only eight months and 12 days away and because an asteroid is going to end humankind. So, he has put together a list of everything he wants to do before the world ends. With the help of her friends, she must decide if he is a nut-job or if that even matters, as being with him gets her living a fuller life.

No Tomorrow has potential, as the cast is very likable and the people behind it have brought us some really good, if short-lived at times, shows. So, I will be giving this one a temporary spot on my watch list. They jammed a bit too much into the pilot, but my main problem with the show is that I am not sure how it works longer than maybe a season. The premise, while interesting, puts a clock on the show and given the time period covered in the first episode, it seems like we will get to the day the world is supposed to end easily within the first season. If he is right, the show is over. If he is wrong, what does that do to the happy-go-lucky fun premise? But, it could be fun in the meantime. Overall, if you are a fan of The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend or Jane the Virgin, you will want to check this one out. No Tomorrow has a similar wacky premise at its core and both of them have turned out to be really good. And, The CW has seen fit to keep them around, even though practically nobody is watching them.

If you listened to my preview, you know that I had one caveat going forward in regards to this show. That being that the twist was a big part of what made the first episode great and it’s not something that you can really do long term. After having watched tonight’s and next week’s episodes, I am no longer worried, at least for the foreseeable future. What did you think of last week’s premiere? Will you be continuing to watch?
