Storyline

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. These are just some of the eclectic and seemingly unconnected characters whose lives will start to intersect in the most unexpected ways as news breaks that a comet is ... Written by simonwarn

Fun and Doesn't Take Itself Too Seriously
8 December 2015 | by ericerb1See all my reviews

The plot is an interesting mix of apocalyptic Armageddon, religion, with hints (some more subtle that others) of the supernatural. The story-line is fast-paced and interesting with many twists along the way. The biggest of which in the last 2 seconds of the series finally. The cast is an interesting mix of British and American actors who for the most part are great together. Some of the characters begin as blatant stereotypes, but we do see character development throughout most of them that makes them more accessible by the season (hopefully not series) finally. There are some distractingly terrible American accents. One character in particular, but thankfully she is not a lead character as much as an occasional annoyance. Don't over-analyze it and you're sure to have a good time.
