Y: The Last Man, meet your new President, Diane Lane

New post apocalyptic FX/Hulu series based on a long running comic where all the world’s men have died off- except for one who is the new President’s wayward son, a very bad magician and escape artist- with a monkey! First three episodes have dropped and it’s a gripping rollercoaster ride with lots of twists. Diane’s doing some of the best work she’s ever done and faces foes like the John McCainesque conservative daughter of the president she replaced.

I loved the comics series, and have been waiting years for an adaptation. I’m not disappointed. The first three episodes are great.

I read the description on Hulu because I like dystopian and post-apocalyptic stories. I was amused that they specified the survivor was a "cisgender" man. I guess talking about chromosomes is a dangerous business these days.

Yes, quite transphobic to even attempt to tie chromosomes and gender!

Do Trans women survive?

This premiere today must have overloaded Hulu’s already glitchy platform. It took me three tries today to watch it without the whole thing crashing.

Initially there wasn’t Trans representation in the graphic novels, but it is included here in the series. The actor who played Ian’s boyfriend in Shameless is part of the cast.

So, bio-men could have survived if they'd chopped off their dicks?

R8 You don't quite understand reality. Chopping off the cock does not make one a women, and the Y chromosome would mean tranny ladies die.

R6 So, they have shat on the source graphic novel to make it fantasy bollocks to appease the mentals?

Exactly, you don’t need to chop off anything to identify as trans. Self ID is a thing, you know. Transwomen are women. The disease kills off all the men in the world so of course it does not kill the transwomen since they’re women.

For those too stupid to follow, the Trans Men are still around because although they are now men they were born biologically female and thus have XX chromosomes. the problem is though having access to Testosterone to be able to maintain their hormonal needs to continue being male.

Watched ep. 1-3. It's rather good. the trans bit gets a few minutes (same trans from 'Shameless', U.S.). What's good is the ensuing battle between dumbass post-Trumpian women and moderate Dems. Looks like women 'run the world,' but MAGAt hags will fuck it up again with idealogical power grabs.

Damn those fucking bland Canadian day player actors. The nerd at the support group said something like “I couldn’t think ABOOT anything but dick.”

This isn’t too bad. I love Diane Lane. The guy playing her son is cute but has a weird thing with his “s”.’s. What’s with the herpes on the daughter’s lip?

I might stick with this.

Yorick is cute and looked good naked. He’s not as hot as his daddy Cass Winthrop was back in the 80s!

I like that the only surviving man is a whiny little prick.

by Anonymousreply 19September 15, 2021 10:26 AM

I thought the lead actor's last name sounded familiar and then after Googling I realized his father is Stephen Schnetzer who played Cass on Another World and a couple of other shows, and Ben Olsen on Days of Our Lives and his mother is Nancy Snyder who was Katrina on One Life to Live.

The daughter is a cunt.

by Anonymousreply 21September 16, 2021 3:51 AM

The daughter was kind of a cunt in the comics, too. I read an interview with the show runner where she talked about the changes to the series vs. the comics. It has been a long time since I read the original, but I haven’t seen any glaring changes yet. The trans character and the conservative bitches are new, but they fit fine. I might have to check it out from the library to refresh my memory.

Diane Lane and the actress playing Agent 355 are perfectly cast.

by Anonymousreply 22September 16, 2021 4:11 AM

The son is cute and was cute in the film "Pride". Brian from "Tales of the City" looked good as a silver daddy! I LOVE Diane Lane. The comic made Yorick more of a hero than the doofus he is here but I'm liking what they've done to his character. I hope Agent 355 smacks his ass down.

Is Amber Tamblyn really that chunky or is it padding? It feels likes she's playing a Meghan McCain type.

Ben Schnetzer is cute and talented. Glad to see him getting a big TV gig.

He was the lead in "The Nap" on Broadway - he did a great job and got very impressively shirtless.

Olivia Thirlby is a good example of undercasting. They could have gotten someone much more compelling for that role.

That was my thought, also. But I think, much like when the pandemic happened the shelves have gone bare because, in this circumstance, people are looting.

First great three episodes. I forgot that weirdo Barry Keoghan was originally cast as Yorick and dropped out. Glad he left or the producers got rid of him because Schnetzer is perfect.

I was originally cast as the Last Male President, but they reshot my scenes for reasons unknown.

I still have an Oscar. And Diane Lane? I fucked her twice on Oscar weekend!

R38 So there was an original pilot that was completely scrapped? I heard this had quite the journey getting to screen, but not that.

Y: The Last Man showrunner Eliza Clark addressed some of the obstacles she had to clear during filming. She also dismissed any concerns about the impact the series’ reshoots had on the finished product.

“I can’t speak to exactly what happened before I came on board,” said Clark. “But I’ll say this: I was not brought on to patch holes in a dam. I was brought on for an entirely new take. I got to re-shoot the pilot entirely and rewrite it entirely. From there, besides COVID, we have not had a crazy … It hasn’t been a troubled show. COVID shut everyone down, but we’ve been cooking with gas since the beginning.”

“There were a lot of amazing cast members that I got to inherit, including the people who ended up leaving,” added Clark. “But, schedules and whatever, it’s a long time to give to a project if there are things that happened before, you know what I mean? I think people have been attached for a long time and I got to end up with the cast I wanted and needed. I think you will be very excited if you love the books to see this incredible cast. Have you seen Ashley Romans do her thing [as 355]? I mean, she’s incredible.”

Clark’s forebears on the series initially cast Captain Marvel’s Lashana Lynch to play Agent 355, who also happens to be one of the comic’s most pivotal supporting characters. It wasn’t until Clark took over as showrunner that Romans inherited the role. And this wasn’t the only casting shakeup that happened under Clark’s watch. Barry Keoghan was originally set to headline the series as the titular “last man,” Yorick Brown. However, he left the show at the beginning of last year after filming on the original pilot had already begun. Clarke subsequently cast Ben Schnetzer to replace him before shooting recommenced last fall. Around that time, Olivia Thirlby also replaced Imogen Poots as Yorick’s sister, Hero.

What is the plot beyond the premise?

by Anonymousreply 56September 21, 2021 12:25 AM

So how did three of the stories converge so quickly and where exactly are they? Agent and Yorick are supposedly an hour from Boston, Hero and friend left NYC for DC and are near 95, and mother and daughter fled DC and walked north for a week. Was that supposed to be the Eagles stadium in Philly maybe? Giants stadium in Secaucus? Obviously it was filmed in Canada and looked more like a soccer stadium? I was not expecting them to all be in the same orbit. And Agent caused the other helicopter to explode right?

Yes; and she continues to be the smartest person in the show. She knew those women would talk. so she had to handle them. If Yorick keeps whining about Beth I want him to end up with the same fate.
