The world is ending in ‘Now Apocalypse’

I love when Nickelodeon and Disney Channels to go “wild” and do outrageous and crazy roles. That’s what dragged me in when I saw that Starz’s new show “Now Apocalypse” would feature a plethora of them. So let’s talk about “Now Apocalypse” and either you should watch or not. You can probably already guess what my answer is going to be.

It’s the end of the world as we know it

“Now Apocalypse” is a comedy show that follows four friends as through their lives in Los Angeles. It follows their friendship, relationship, dating, and their sex lives. Things turn weird when one friend has visions of the world ending. He must then try to figure out whether it’s too much weed or if he was actually seeing into the future.

The show stars Avan Jogia (“VICTORiOUS”), Beau Mirchoff (“Awkward”), Kelli Berglund (“Lab Rats”), and Roxane Mesquida (“Gossip Girl”). Also in the series is Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”) and Jacob Artist (“Glee”). The acting isn’t bad at all. In all honesty, it’s rather good. They are all likable for the most part and do a good job in their roles. It’s not going to get them an Emmy but they should at least get a good pat on the back.

This isn’t the show for you if you don’t like sexual shows. There’s a lot of sex. Gay sex. Straight Sex. Orgies. You name it and the show has it. It’s what you would expect on HBO, Showtime, Netflix, and Cinemax when it comes to their programming. It’s borderline softcore porn but yet it’s using it in a way that also helps propel the story.

The ending of the show was lackluster. Without going too much into details, it was kind was a cliffhanger but not in the way that really made you go “omg what just happened?” It was kind of like “okay…” I just wish it had more of a cliff hanger to it. I honestly thought there was one more episode. I don’t know if I was that invested to it or the cliffhanger was that lackluster.

“Now Apocalypse” is just a show to watch if you are in need of a dirty good time. It’s not a horrible show but it is an earth shattering good show. It’s just one of those shows that you don’t really need to over think but you can still enjoy it. I honestly didn’t know any other characters names until about the sixth episode. If this show comes back for season two, would I watch? Honestly, I probably would. It’s like a trainwreck of sex. You just can’t help but look away.

I do recommend checking out the show. It’s not anything especially but it doesn’t need to be. There are only 10 episodes and they aren’t long at all. You can easily binge the show. This is a prime example of why shows don’t need to be a highly rated show to be a good one. It’s a total gulity pleasure show.
