So I watched the pilot of “Last Resort” online. If you’ve seen any of the commercials, you pretty much know everything that occurs in the pilot.
The show is about a submarine, The Colorado, which is given an order to fire on Pakistan. They question it, because all evidence suggests there is no reason to do so. When they don’t fire, another ship tries to nuke them . . . and then fires on Pakistan. The U.S. government claims The Colorado was sank by Pakistan, and they retaliated. There are more twists and turns, such as a U.S. President about to be impeached, which seems to lead us to believe much much more is going on. The Colorado takes refuge on some island in the Pacific, takes it over, and vows to start a nuclear war and burn the world if governments don’t stand down . . .
I actually really enjoyed the pilot, and will continue to watch the show. My main issue is, how will they continue this past one season? It just seems to me that the show can only go on for so long . . . Also I feel the show will be tagged as Anti-American, and therefore end up the subject of boycotts which are so in fashion these days. Therefore it’s hard to commit to the show, if it won’t last even a season.
