    See below.

    Ratings sucked, nothing to do with the storm.

    They have Red Widow and Zero Hour to replace these two.

    I'm sensing network interference in the last two episodes.
    It's too bad, I thought that Last Resort had a lot of potential and it's probably worth it just for Andre Braugher alone.

    I also liked 666 Park Avenue.
    I applaud that they are trying to do something different and Terry O'Quinn is great in it.

    Guess Terry O'Quinn can come back to Hawaii five-0. I don't think they killed him off..

    I was going to kill the two eps of Last Resort I have on the TiVo but I think I'll watch all 13 we get since it looks like we'll get an ending.

    I'll watch Last Resort to the end, since they will actually get to wrap it up.

    666 is boring to me, but my wife likes it.

    Revolution would be better if it made sense. Why would bullets fire but the engine in an old car or generator wouldn't? How does no power make a spark fail to happen? Dumb.

    Boy, Shawn Ryan has had a run of bad luck for a talented guy. Obviously The Shield ran for a long time and ended on his terms, but his followups Chicago Code and Last Resort, both decent shows with real promise, didn't even get a full season. And then there's Terriers, one of TV's best shows right from the start, that didn't get a second season.

    Of the three, the cancellation of Terriers was the biggest shame.

    That show was flat out awesome.

    I lasted til the 3rd episode. My military boyfriend couldn't get into it saying it was unrealistic.

    Who needs realistic? It's got Andre Braugher. I'd tune in to watch him read the phone book out loud.

    Better yet, just to watch him play someone reading the phone book to himself with a close-up on his face.

    Now if you want unrealistic there's always the "physics and chemistry work in some case but not others" premise behind Revolution.

    (If battery acid doesn't pull electrons from the anode and shove them toward the cathode, then our bodies, and every other living thing, quit working as well.)

    I served on USS Nevada, an Ohio class boomer. I went through USMC TBS (USMC basic officer infantry school) at Quantico. I can get past the unrealistic stuff. He must just not like it. Or wants to shut your mouth, turn off the tv, and go to bed. ;) Just sayin'. :eek:

    Considering the introduction of a Seaman named Kowalski in the last episode, I suspect that some of the writers are basing their knowledge of Naval submarine operations on Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea reruns.

    ;)

    Nah. They wouldn't know that. That was too long ago. It's Hunt for Red October and Crimson Tide.

    Didn't FDR sneak in a New Deal invisible stealth amendment to the Constitution (while distracting everyone by making us think he was trying to pack the Supreme Court) that introduced a federal mandate that every Hollywood depiction of the military had to include an enlisted man named Kowalski?

    I watch both but now I am thinking I may just finish up Last Resort and cut 666 Park Avenue loose right now.

    I haven't started 666 yet, is there anyway to give me a feel for what it's about and whether I'd like it without massive spoilerism?

    It is definitely supernatural and the plots seem to deal with the history of the building, and Terry O'Quinn as the owner of the building seems to have the ability to make things happen for his guests, very much in the "be careful what you wish for" vein.
