Two Sailors Walk Into a Bar...



Man, the Captain looked like an Oompla Loompa!! Hey, at least the script supervisor is in fact paying attention to detail. If you ever find yourself in the unfortunate sitiuation of floating in the open sea under a bright sun, you too would look like an Oompa Loompa!!! As for the episode itself, I found it very good. Nice buildup to the extraction and rescuing everyone that needed rescuing. So, Team USA finally blows the Russian ship to hell, but does anyone reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally think that's the last we will be seeing of them? Of course not! They even set it up that there will be survivors, more specifically.....Patient Zero as he dons a sailor uniform and blends in with the rest of the soldiers.

I was intending to post the news a couple weeks back but got sidetracked. Anyway, better late than never. Good news is that The Last Ship got picked up very early into Season 1 due to overwhelming positive word of mouth. This is what I like to hear. I didn't want to have to "think about the series being on the bubble" while watching this season play out. Now I can just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Well that is a certainly good news. I understand about the waiting. HBO has been hesitant on announcing anything, until now, about The Leftovers. It will be renewed. I know lots of people would have bailed sooner than later if it did not get renewed.

I got a little smirk when the XO told the joke.

Trials




I'm actually surprised that by the end of the episode they had in effect manufactured a cure for the virus that's wiping out the planet. I was convinced that the Trials would be a disaster and that half of the 6 would have been toast and the other half would have somehow been saved, if not cured outright. So, with the cure at hand, the focus will have to shift elsewhere for it's threat and my only guess would be whoever the 'Bad Guy' is, is going to want to keep the cure from getting out. I dunno, but the idea that it's going in a different direction has me excited for the show because now we will be in uncharted waters. *Rim Shot*.  ;D Great episode that had me on pins and needles the entire time.

Yep, that was a slow, but churning, burning episode. I was thinking it was very appropriate. I could easily imagine the writers from another project get lazy and just blow through this critical process.

No Place Like Home




As soon as I saw that Alfre Woodard had joined the cast of The Last Ship, I knew exactly what this episode would be. I immediately knew that she was going to be portrayed as the "Good Guy" only to be revealed at the end that she is in fact not only the 'Bad Guy' but is in fact the one that is trying to keep the cure from getting out so that she can further her own "Government". How did I know all this? Easy. Just go watch Revolutions. I'm loving The Last Ship, but seeing a lot of this episode being cribbed from Revolutions leaves me worried for the series. I don't want it going down the same road and ending up with the same ending. I did enjoy the episode. It was good. But that doesn't take away my concerns for it right now. Also shocked to find out THIS was the Season Finale. What the f*ck! Is TNT so cheap that they can't even give us 13 episodes per season? WHAT THE F**CK!!!!!!

Dammit, did I hear we saw the last episode until the new season starts sometime in 2015?

WTF

Yup.

I only found out about it when the promo aired right before the final credits rolled.

Little late to the party sorry guys been a little busy,

I liked the last episode. Cliffhangers everywhere. Most of the season was predictable, as was the finally, most of it any way. I am happy we will have a second season.

So looking at my TeeVee App, I forgot all about The Last Ship. Went to TNT and they say, coming back this summer?

Seriously, WTF.

It was a Summer series. I wasn't expecting it to come back sooner when it was announced that they had been given a Season 2 order. Already had this one earmarked for the following Summer.

The Last Ship (A million billion stars)  ;D

My television viewing has kinda changed this year. With regards to the The Last Ship, which comes on Sunday @ 8 PM CST, many times does not allow me to watch it at that time, so I have been block-binge watching. Like watching episodes 4-6 last night.

The Last Ship is consistently well written. The formula changes over the season and that makes for engaging viewing. Last night a couple of major characters lost their lives. It was kind of shocking. Itís not all fun and games on the ship. The mightiest ship in the world. Tragedy is real for everybody.

And this is one of the points I was making to my wife. I was relating how The Walking Dead involves losing major characters. ANYBODY is open to lose their life, which translates into the great unknown how stories move along. She still loves happy endings in everything she watches, so this kind of storytelling is not high on her priority list. She enjoys The Last Ship, but still has not bitten into The Walking Dead or the more accessible Fear The Walking Dead.

I couldn't agree with you more Mac. Season 1 was great, but Season 2 has been an exceptional ride because they changed up the narrative. As much as I liked the first season, I was concerned with how they could sustain the series "looking for a cure". But by having them facing off terrorist looking to claim the US as their own and using our own American citizens against the Navy was a great way to extend the series. Really bummed that they killed off Ravit. I really liked her character. Inbar Lavi was great in the role. Can't wait for the Season Finale tomorrow night.
