The Last Man on Earth is an American post-apocalyptic comedy TV series created by Will Forte who also plays the main character Phil Miller, which is quite funny since the directors of the pilot episode are Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The story begins about a year after a deadly virus has swept the Earth, and Phil seems to be the only surviving human. He looks for other survivors and ends up in his hometown of Tucson, but soon finds Carol Pilbasian. They initially annoy each other but get married so they can repopulate the Earth, and more survivors join them later on.
The Last Man on Earth Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture
Jeremy is the cute little doggo that makes an appearance in The Last Man on Earth. His owner is Pamela Brinton, a wealthy socialite, and philanthropist who loves dogs so much that she started a foundation to save them. After the virus outbreak, Jeremy and Pamela arrive in the bunker that her deceased friend Catherine bought, just in case. Pamela and Jeremy explore the space and find that it is entirely satisfactory considering the situation they are in. They find canned food, a big bedroom, and a big living room with a plasma screen. Pamela also finds a drone that she can fly around to see what is happening around her.
The two of them spend the first year in the bunker seemingly enjoying themselves, despite the situation they are in. They celebrate the holidays, eat all the canned food, and try to entertain themselves. In the second and third year, Pamela tries to teach Jeremy to say milk, but the doggo does not seem to be too interested in her proposition. As more and more time passes, Jeremy’s owner becomes more agitated because of the loneliness, she no longer shows emotion, but still tries to get the cute Jeremy to speak. One day, Jeremy eats some of her clothes, Pamela threatens to kick him out of their new home and even opens the door to get her point across. However, sweet little Jeremy does run away from her, leaving her all alone in the bunker.
In later episodes, we can see that Jeremy is back with Pamela. He does not seem to care about the troubles Phil goes through and knocks off his makeshift toilet. Phil also used him to force Pamela to hand over her gun. Later, he goes back to the United States with Glenn and Pamela to search for Glenn’s children.
Even though Jeremy does not have a significant role in The Last Man on Earth, he is still an essential part of the series for many reasons. One of them is the fact that humans, even in the worst conditions possible, are able to connect with their true nature and care for other beings who depend on them. In the case of the apocalypse, small dogs would not be able to fend for themselves, as they were not bred to be wild and feral, and they would rely on humans to protect them from dangers this world poses.
The Last Man on Earth Inspired Dog Name Considerations
The Last Man on Earth is quite a funny TV series, but it can also make one think of what to do if the apocalypse really does happen. Would we all work together to survive, or would we turn on each other instead? How would we fight the new living conditions and the lack of modern-day luxuries most of us are used to? How would we adjust to the apocalyptic state of no electricity, no food factories, and no gasoline to keep the cars going? If you have been wondering the same thing while watching The Last Man on Earth, you may find the series inspiring enough to name your lovely new doggo after one of the characters.
The first, most obvious choice is the name of the main character, the quirky Phil Miller, who starts by thinking that he is the last person left on planet Earth. Carol is Phil’s wife, a girl he finds when he is about to give up on life. The two of them annoy each other in the beginning but end up getting married and having children. They also encounter other survivors such as Melissa Chartres-Rodriguez is a former real estate agent from Ohio whom Phil had a crush on, and Jasper, a boy who hid in the woods in the Yoda costume, both fantastic names for your pupper.
