I have long been a fan of Shawn Ryan, Andre Branagher and Robert Patrick and the three together, in a show, makes for an interesting combination.
the show "last resort" is a good show with a great story line. I am a huge fan of shows like MI-5, The Unit, The Shield, and many others, so this is up my alley, so to speak. The political structure storyline about the military industrial complex brings a great angle to a "Mutiny on the Bounty" story makes for an interesting premise. With addition of some aspects of "Lost" (a mysterious tropical isle off the grid) and a little "24" ( political intrigue with men of honor) I am hoping that this show will find it's home on thursday nights and not get cancelled.
Do I like it? yes, very much so. Do i think it will find an audience? possible with the Xfiles people, the people that like shows like the aforementioned shows, yes. But TV audiences can be very fickle at times and sometimes the best of shows (Chicago Code comes to mind) can be the victim of bad scheduling. (really exactly how more years can we deal with reality based, talent based shows?) After all, Last Resort asks us to think, to comprehend and to watch not sit back and be passively entertained by overly dramatic, preening 20 somethings who want to be a star.
give it a chance people, it's good, it's entertaining and thrilling...not sanjia with a bad hair day.
