Comedy drama about the final days of mankind. Mild-mannered Slough Bank Manager Jamie (Mathew Baynton) is in a rut - albeit a very organized one - consumed by grief for his missing wife. All of that soon changes, however, when he's arrested on suspicion of cyber terrorism and realizes that, somehow, he must have an identical twin, and that his mum Paula (Pauline Quirke) has some serious explaining to do. Halfway around the world in New Mexico, unassuming librarian Rhonda (Jenna Fischer) enters a maximum-security prison for a crime she didn't commit, and reluctantly falls under the wing of unhinged white supremacist Leanne (Megan Mullally). At the Vatican, meanwhile, foul-mouthed rebel Priest Father Jude (Rob Lowe) interviews the beautiful Sister Celine (Gaia Scodellaro) for a role in his office of the Devil's Advocate.

Brilliant opening episode, to what promises to be, a brilliant series of television. This has been advertised heavily on UK TV in recent weeks, and after watching the opening episode, it seems the hype is well deserved.

The cast is very strong, some big names mixed with some lesser know names, and i can honestly say, everyone in the opener nailed it. If the show continues as it started, You, Me and the apocalypse looks set to be a very good addition to the end of the world genre !!.
8/10 (So Far !!)
