Fun doomsday romcom has some iffy messages.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Live your life as if your days are numbered; the consequences of doing so don't always matter.
Positive Role Models
Xavier is firm in his doomsday belief, is sometimes reckless as a result. Evie, not so much.
Violence & Scariness
Occasional injuries, exploding appliances, jumping from cliffs; no blood.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that No Tomorrow is a lighthearted romantic comedy about a couple trying to live life to the fullest before the predicted end of the world. The language is pretty mild ("hell" is common), but some racy moments include people getting undressed and getting in and out of bed. Expect some drinking and references to drug use, too. It's fun, but a lot of the goals on their bucket lists aren't the most responsible (or legal), and younger viewers (or adults sensitive about this sort of thing) might be disturbed by the apocalyptic theme.

What's the Story?
Based on the Brazilian series How to Enjoy the End of the World, NO TOMORROW is a romantic comedy series about a couple who believe the world is ending in a little more than eight months. Seattle resident Evie Covington (Tori Anderson) meets Xavier (Joshua Sasse), a former science magazine copy editor who "discovered" information about an asteroid that he believes will crash into Earth. Quickly settling into a relationship, the two take turns crossing things off their "apocalysts" before the world's demise. Meanwhile, Evie still has to deal with her day-to-day problems, including renegotiating her relationship with ex-boyfriend Timothy (Jesse Rath) and building her career at an Amazon-esque distribution center along with coworkers Kareema (Sarayu Blue) and Hank (Jonathan Langdon) despite the presence of her annoying boss, Deirdre (Amy Pietz). Despite Xavier's confidence, Evie's not completely convinced that their days are numbered, but she's enjoying living life to the fullest.
Is It Any Good?
This quirky series mixes romance, surrealism, and a classic doomsday prophecy to create a lighthearted watch that's both sweet and comfortably predictable. Both Evie and Xavier are appealing characters, which makes it easy to stay tuned in to their bucket list adventures. Their chemistry also makes you want to root for the success of their relationship.
The comedy of No Tomorrow is smart and sharp and successfully enhances the overall story. But not everyone will appreciate the underlying dark premise, which inevitably pokes fun at those who consider themselves apocalyptic "truth tellers." Nonetheless, No Tomorrow is a breezy, fun series that brings a little light to a dark subject.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about using dark or disturbing themes as the premise for a funny film or comedy series like No Tomorrow. Are the issues taken as seriously as they would be in a drama? How does it affect the comedy?
Is Xavier's attitude about "living life to the fullest" without worrying about long-term consequences a good one? Why?
Is it appropriate to poke fun at people who believe in extreme or controversial ideas? What messages does it send? How can the media highlight these distinct points of view without making the people who have them seem weird, silly, or extreme?
