Last Resort - "Captain" - 9/27/12

I haven't enjoyed a pilot this much since 'Lost'. I definitely hope they can keep this up but I really don't see how the concept plays out as a series right now.

Andre Braugher is amazing, as always... glad to see him back and in a starring role.

Ditto- don't know how or if they'll be able to sustain it, but that was absolutely fantastic

I have a feeling that if I knew as much about military protocol as I do about science, this show would have annoyed me as much as Revolution.

But fortunately, I don't.

There are some annoying inaccuracies regarding SLBMs and cruise missiles but compared to typical Hollywood fare this is almost like watching a documentary.

Thumbs up

Thought it was pretty good. I liked seeing Autumn Reese again, she's a hottie.

The first 15 minutes, all I could think was that I liked this show much better the first time I saw it, when it was called Crimson Tide.

But it got much better after that.

I missed it and only watched a few minutes at the 45 min mark. Loved what I saw. I was happy to see it is playing again tomorrow night. Season pass is set.

If it can keep the story going it will be a must see program. However, I dont see how they can write too many more shows. Might have been better as a movie.

Best pilot I've seen in a while.

If they avoid FlashForward syndrome, I'm in for the season.

This one I thought I'd really like going in and I did. Not sure how it can go a full season much less multiple seasons but I hope it does. It seems more like a miniseries premise.

If you like Braugher, he was great in a short lived series called Thief

Now that was good. Strange, but I kind of got a Star Trek vibe during some moments. Maybe it was all the times they gave someone "the conn."

I think the casting is good. It's good to see Scott Speedman and the hot girl from No Ordinary Family.

I like that the Seals know something about what's really going on. I can't see how they can sustain this show, but they did a fantastic job with the premiere, so I'm interested to see how it develops.

I also enjoyed it and also am wondering if/how they can sustain it.

As they take over the island while trying clear themselves ( and save the world ) I see see them going all A-Team (or Burn Notice ) and helping out the locals with their problems.

While they're in a lagoon on a tropical island, at least with a nuclear reactor for power the first mate won't have to pedal a bamboo bicycle to power the radio.

I liked it a lot.

I don't know if anybody else had the same thought but I don't know how this can play out over a full season.

That was good quality television!

I'm with everybody else, though, don't see how they're going to sustain this, but I'm in it for now.

I'm almost hoping it has a comic element to it. A nuclear submarine sitting out a nuclear war on a tropical paradise...if the writers can't take at least a little joy in that premise, then they need to turn in their human cards.

Agreed on all counts. SP set. This will likely be same night viewing material for me.

I recorded it, but I'm hanging back. I'm afraid to get invested and have it get cancelled.

TV that's as good as you all are telling me this is doesn't stick around long.

I think ABC would be nuts to cancel this since they don't have a show as big as Lost was, and Shawn Ryan is the show runner.

I'm still going to wait a couple episodes. I got burned too many times before by shows--firefly-- that the network would have been crazy to cancel.

It was hard to see how they were going to sustain Lost, too (I'm not comparing it to Lost)...and that show very quickly proved to being nothing like what we thought it would be.
