It's the end of the world as we know it....hence why it failed.
24 October 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

The Fox Network, when it was making a name for itself, loved taking chances on such goofy fare as "Get a Life" and "The Edge." However, before many of their stations got their own news anchors, Fox tried to turn the 10pm-11pm Sunday Night slot into another hour of comedy. One of these is "Flying Blind" which had it's moments. This is the other half of that experiment, and it was far less luckier.

The only real thing I'll remember about "Woops" is the moment the world ends. The hero (his name is unimportant) is in his volvo making a bank deposit when suddenly the bomb hits and everything is desert. After a long walk, he ends up at this valley where this farmhouse and surrounding yard is saved and where five other people have found. Thus, the setup for the comedy is set, right?

Wrong.

"Woops" is a black comedy without the comedy. The episode about how they will repopulate the human race and four of the men decide wheither they'll take the hot young blonde or aging 40-year-old is just sickening. A valiant effort at comedy, but more than not it was a odd and strange retread of a "Different Strokes" sitcom. Not that funny. Of course, only 10 of the 13 episodes were ever aired, so that really proves my point.

I doubt this show will ever see the light of broadcasting ever again. Shame? Maybe not.
