I only watched the first few "Last Man on Earth", so I guess I missed quite a bit. So when I started watching again I was surprised that either there are 2 Phil Millers, or Tandy and Phil switched names.

What happened and why?

1 Answer 1


Because this happened in episode 11 of season 1:

Phil starts changing his billboard messages from "Alive in Tucson" to "Moved to Tampa", but his ladder falls while he is working on his first sign, leaving him stranded. A new, handsome man (Boris Kodjoe) arrives and rescues Phil, driving him home. To everyone's surprise, the new man is also named Phil Miller. Confusion over having two Phils results in a competition that the original Phil loses. As a result, he is now to be known by his middle name, "Tandy".

  • Thanks. Will check off as soon as the timer permits. This has been bothering me throughout the second season. Mar 14, 2016 at 22:12
  • You mean you never finished season 1? If so, yeah, you'll miss out on some stuff...

  • I kind of lost interest when they abandoned the original premise on such a large scale, but I started again. It's still kind of corny, but can be amusing, and I love Steenbergen. Mar 14, 2016 at 22:31
