ABC’s ‘Last Resort’ Nothing to Say But “Wow!” (YouTube Videos)
You gotta want to root for Andre Braugher. He’s nothing but fantastic in everything he does. TNT’s Men of a Certain Age, well that show needed a better network like maybe one of the big three in ABC, CBS or FOX. None of us will every forget his role as Detective Frank Pembleton in Homicide: Life on The Street.
Now could be Last Resort for Andre Braugher, the newest Lost type series that got off to a great start with content but a bit of a disappointment in the ratings category. But this show as seriously a lot of action, drama, energy and intrigue. Last Resort has Andre Braugher as Captain Marcus Chaplin, boss of the submarine the Colorado who was told to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan. At 500 feet below sea level, Chaplin want additional confirmation as the “go” to fire weapons came to them on an alternative channel. Then the Colorado gets fired upon and goes rogue ending up at an exotic island separated from the outside world and on the defense.
And the real drama begins on Last Resort . Some members on the submarine don’t want to go along with the plan in their new surroundings and of course sexual tension is involved or there wouldn’t be a need for this show to reach ABC TV’s core consumer of women 18 to 49 years of age.
Last Resort is definitely worth the series recording on your DVR. The pilot episode grabs you and as with Lost you want to find out more about how this loose band of disenfranchised military personnel fare during their time on the island.
Last Resort also stars the good looking Scott Speedman from Felicity and his biggest movie role with Kate Beckinsale in the 2003 hit film Underworld.
