  • I’ve always wanted to see some post-apocalyptic celebs, especially after that hilarious Schwimmer joke they snuck into the season premiere.

  • Depending on how they treat this, it could either be kind of funny or really terrible. I hope they put him in old age makeup so that he looks 70ish or whatever he would be by that time.

  • By the way, my opinion the fall break episode was probably the worst episode ever and I may not return in the spring.

  • So Bret is basically Tom Petty in the Postman (terrible movie but characters seem similar).

  • Oh, come on, Revolution. Bret Michaels would have been done for in the first half hour of Doomsday. Everybody knows Keith Richards will be the Cockroach King of America post-apocalypse.
