No Tomorrow Review: What's on your Apocalyst?

I just finished watching No Tomorrow on Netflix and I really enjoyed it!! When I started the show, I could tell why the CW cancelled it. At first, it just didn't seem as good as the other quirky comedies like Jane the Virgin or Crazy Ex Girlfriend. At first, it felt like the comedy was off. It wasn't haha funny, I guess you can say.

However, as I continued through the show, I loved it. It is funny enough, and there are other positive qualities - like the plot, the premise, the message. No Tomororw, for those of you who don't know, is a show where the main character falls in love with with a guy who thinks the world is going to end and so he encourages her to live life to the fullest.  What's on your Apocalyst? What would you do if you only had 6 months to live? How would you change your life to live in the present and really get your dreams moving.

While watching, I always wondered how they were gonna end it. Is Xavier right and the world is going to end in flames? Or is he wrong and everyone is right when they call him a crazy crack-pot.

When I watched the final episode, I knew it was the final episode. I knew that The CW had not renewed it. (sad face :-( It was a good show!!! But alas, the ratings). On Netflix, they don't show the epilogue. But even without the epilogue, it's sort of beautiful.


Xavier and Evie going out into the world and doing their own thangs. Following their dream jobs. Evie sorta moving on with that doctor guy. How that doctor guy came full circle because he met Xavier at the hospital and encouraged him to quit his job and follow his dreams.

I also like that Xavier was right about the theory. I like that he wasn't just some crazy lunatic. And then he was able to stop the meteor from crushing the Earth with NASA - so cool!

In the beginning, the supporting characters seemed kind of lame. But as the show continued, they started to grow on me and I am glad they got their happy endings.

It was SIGNS that brought Xavier and Evie together (getting the wrong package delivered). It was SIGNS that brought Evie and Doctor-Guy together.

After The CW cancelled No Tomorrow they put in a 2 minute epilogue. The epilogue isn't on Netflix so I had to go searching for it on The CW website. But here's the text from the epilogue.
  • On May 23, the asteroid hit Planet Earth...And killed two cows in a pasture outside Lawrence, Kansas. Xavier & B612 were able to reduce the asteroid's size and avoid global catastrophe.
  • Timothy and Hank's band, Finger and The Noise, enjoyed moderate success after their debut single was used in an episode of Supernatural Season 16. (A CALL BACK TO ANOTHER CW SHOW!!)
  • Timothy and Talia now run an ayahuasca-based writers' retreat near Sedona
  • Hank and Deirdre moved into his bunker on May 21, survived the asteroid, and emerged in time for Deirdre to give birth to Hank, Jr. (no mention if its a girl or boy LOL!)
  • Deirdre still works for Cybermart. It is the fourth greatest love of her life (after Hank, HankJr., and Douglas).
  • Kareema and Sofia are still together. They are passionate advocates of marriage equality and progressive immigration reform.
  • Xavier became a massive hit on the inspirational lecture circuit and a bestselling author ("How Big is your Apocalyst?"). He and his father are still in regular contact. He is the godson of Jesse and Amber's son Jamber.
  • Evie found her true calling as a logistics coordinator for Doctors Without Borders. She traveled the world, helping to facilitate healthcare for people in need.
