    Last Resort

    Just watched this tonight. Best pilot I've seen in years. If the rest of the episodes are as good as this one, we might have a network drama that can give the cable shows a run for their money.

    What is it about? I saw a banner on Facebook about the government murdering people, and that's about it,

    Re: Last Resort

    A US submarine was fired on by other US ships because they refused a shaky order from an unknown source. They then set up base on an island and use the 18 nukes on board as defense.

    The show stars Andre Braugher who is excellent in this role.

    Re: Last Resort

    I have heard that this is one of the best new shows(IGN.com), but it had really bad ratings so it might not survive their first season(YaHoo!.com).

    Initial ratings weren't great but it's in a tough timeslot. It's a good enough show that I strongly recommend people watch it but if you wait to see it on DVD so you know if there's going to be a second season or not I'd understand that

    Re: Last Resort

    We finally caught the pilot tonight off our DVR and both my wife and I loved the show. I realize this will mean that I won't get to see a full season.

    Re: Last Resort

    Watched it on DVR tonight. Lot of good stuff on Thurs plus football.

    It reminded me of 24 with part of the US govt looking like they are trying to start a war.

    Re: Last Resort

    I thought it was so-so. Plotline right out of Crimson Tide. Lots of plot holes (the SEALs being allowed to keep their weapons was one) But I'll give it another chance. Agree w/JHudd that me liking it means it won't survive the season, like The Nine.

    So is it protocol to take weapons from everyone getting on the sub? If it is okay - I didn't know that. Didn't seem wrong to me because at that point they are all in the Navy so no big deal. As the show went along I wondered if the SEALs were there by happenstance or were they planned to be there to ensure the Colorado would fire the missiles.

    I really liked the show.

    Re: Last Resort

    It was interesting, there's a lot of context missing about the current "state" of the government and other foreign powers. I'll probably watch at least another episode and see how it progresses.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I think this is intentional and they will fill in as they go with flashbacks or in some other way.

    Re: Last Resort

    Would you rather watch another cops and robbers show instead? At least, this is something different.

    Much rather watch this...especially over another singing or reality show.

    Would love to see it make it a few seasons. I'm just guessing it won't.
