IMDB page of Last Resort.

Synopsis of Last Resort per IMDB....

quote:

500 feet beneath the ocean's surface, the U.S. ballistic missile submarine Colorado receives their orders. Over a radio channel, designed only to be used if their homeland has been wiped out, they're told to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan.

Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) demands confirmation of the orders only to be unceremoniously relieved of duty by the White House. XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) finds himself suddenly in charge of the submarine and facing the same difficult decision. When he also refuses to fire without confirmation of the orders, the Colorado is targeted, fired upon, and hit.

The submarine and its crew find themselves crippled on the ocean floor, declared rogue enemies of their own country. Now, with nowhere left to turn, Chaplin and Kendal take the sub on the run and bring the men and women of the Colorado to an exotic island.

Here they will find refuge, romance, and a chance at a new life, even as they try to clear their names and get home.

From executive producer/writer Shawn Ryan (The Shield, The Unit, The Chicago Code) and Executive producer/writer Karl Gajdusek comes this dramatic new international action-thriller about treachery, treason, and nuclear brinkmanship. LAST RESORT contemplates establishing of a new society in the modern world, and character becomes everything when unthinkable decisions must be made.

It's got a pretty nice Losty vibe to it. Of course it's gonna experience the same problems with plot down the road, but the initial storyline should be fun

Yeah, it does remind me of that but this could be better and now watching the preview, it reminds me of a theme/premise that we can see playing out with the gov't abusing it's power.

I'm sure as the episodes go by, the theme/premise will become more clearer.

This series looks promising.

It was a really fantastic premiere actually. If you get past the preposterous premise, it will be fun.

Might fill the Lost void.

Wow. Andre Brauer is perfect in this role. Speedman seems like he's doing a good job as well.

Love Braugher as the lead. He nailed his role, IMO.

As far as the pilot goes, I enjoyed it but I felt it moved a little too fast. I understand that it's only an hour, but there were plenty of scenes they could have played out a bit more. I enjoy the premise. Will be interesting to see how they play this out. I think this would have been better on FX or something to that extent.

















SPOILERS.....









first 20 minute was almost identical to Crimson Tide, I thought. Which was a little disappointing to me. I love Crimson Tide so I wish try would have went in a different direction. Not sure how considering you can only do so much with submarine mutinies. So I guess I'll let tat slide.
