Storyline

We are introduced to a range of characters across the globe who are leading their lives in their own unconnected way, right up to the point when the American President announces to the world that an extinction level event is due in 34 days time when an asteroid, 8 miles wide, will impact the earth. For some reason, all of these characters will come together in a bunker deep underground in a town in the UK called Slough to watch the end of the world on TV. Written by Guy Fagan

Trivia

The listing of the end credits differs between the original UK release and the subsequent US airing. Originally, the entire episode cast is listed in alphabetical order in the closing credits. In the subsequent US airing, the eight principal actors (Fischer, Baynton, Fry, Scodellaro, Owen, Quirke, Mullally, Lowe) are only listed in the opening credits. See more »

Goofs

No real nuns wear a rosary around their necks. A rosary is a practical bit of kit like a watch, you cannot use it if it around the neck. This error is characteristic of B-movie nuns of the 1970s which has leaked into the popular consciousness. See more »

Quotes

Father Jude: Let me ask you, do you find the phrase "Christ on a bike" offensive? Because I just used it in a meeting, and you would have thought that I'd performed an abortion on the table or something.
Sister Celine: Well, I suppose the image of Christ riding a bicycle could seem a little bit disrepectful.
Father Jude: Really? Because I think he'd be very likely to ride a bike. He seems like that kind of a guy to me. I mean, what else would he show up in, a stretch Hummer?

Who Are These People?
30 March 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The first episode of You, Me and the Apocalypse has an intriguing set up but maybe never clicks has a dark comedy yet.

The setting is Slough, America and the Vatican with people who we know are somehow going to be connected. Well we see them huddled in a basement in Slough to watch the end of the world on television.

At the moment we have an ordinary guy, Jamie (Matthew Baynton) a bank manager accused of being some kind of cyber terrorist/agitator. He is shown a picture by the police of someone who they want. The person looks like him and he is with his missing wife.

Sister Celine who has had a meeting from the priest from hell (Rob Lowe) who is on the lookout for the Antichrist and a new inmate in a US prison, Rhonda who has taken the blame for a hacking crime and is befriended by a a white supremacist.

When the US President announces to the world that in 34 days time an asteroid, 8 miles wide, will hit the earth and cause possible extinction, all hell breaks loose including the cyber terrorist Ariel (Also Matthew Baynton) arrives at the US prison to retrieve Rhonda.

The ingredients are that that this could be good but I felt the humour was not there in the first episode and Rob Lowe showed enough star wattage.
