Hrm, I thought they made reference to him being a SEAL at the beginning but maybe he is a Marine. Well, either way he's Special.

And needs more airtime, IMO.

Well, maybe if they let Rhona Mitra dress in her old Lara Croft outfit to go on an away mission, a deal can be reached.

I don't think the rest of the crew could do their job if that were to happen.

As soon as I saw who was going on the mission, I said to myself that the redshirt would die. Nice red herring writers! (no pun intended)

That can be read, and I intended it that way, as I find The Last Ship entertaining also. That's why I keep watching it. If it were a show I've been watching for years and it goes downhill (IMHO) then I find it almost impossible to stop watching, so I just bitch about it. But with a new shows like The Last Ship, I'm not stuck, so if I don't like it, I can stop watching if it's not entertaining.

'dumbest' might not have been the best choice of a word. It's not really dumb. Whodunnit? (any idea if there is going to be a season two? ) was dumb. TLS just has such great logic and plot holes. I'm not referring to anything that hasn't already been pointed out on these forums.

I'm surprised they didn't save her too.

Pay them? He doesn't need to "pay" them. Making sure that they are not infected and that they are in a position of power relative to the people, and that they have it "easy" would be sufficient (at least for a while.)

I thought it was pretty ridiculous they went back to the camp. Why not just go back to the ship get back up and THEN go back. OK so yeah maybe too late to save the little girl but they are trying to save the world - I didn't buy it.

She'll be the end of everyone. She will get across the river and her father won't be able to resist letting her come home. The End.

Like Laria said, the main objective was to save the girl. Remember how the XO said he had a daughter and asked the Captain about his daughter.

Sting has a new Broadway musical coming this fall called THE LAST SHIP

Tex? He's not a marine but a private contractor (I think).

The fact that they're going this way instead of the expected hookup with the captain is one thing that keeps this show interesting.

Well, the captain is A) married and B) honorable, so he's pretty much off limits.

I thought he was special ops. I didn't think they had contractors at Gitmo.

I vaguely remember him saying that they were contractors in that first Gitmo episode, too, which is why they let the people go. They weren't military, they were just hired to watch the people.

Well, yeah, I can see that in this particular situation, I guess. But, I presume he was in special forces or something previously.

I thought he said that they let them go because of the breakdown in the world order (ok, he didn't use those words.)

Having said that, I also seem to remember him as a contractor.

How does a program arrange for the use of a US naval ship? I know they can recreate the inside of the ship on a sound stage but what about all the outside shots showing the ship?

I read that for the pilot they spent three weeks filming in and around the ship. WHich was much, much longer than the people spent filming on the ship in the Battleship movie.

Exellent use of Dire Straits' "Ride Across the River" in this episode. I hadn't heard that song in ages.

Well, usually you have to go through the DOD to set up rentals. They do it all the time, if the message of the movie doesn't portray the armed forces in a bad light. But, Michael Bay has used so much military hardware in the past, he probably gets a discount.
