Review:

So I watched The Last Ship in a weird way. Well not weird, just not how I use to watch shows. I DVR’d all the episodes and only when the season was finished did I watch all of them. I did this with the final season of Falling Skies and I’ve done it the last two years with Supernatural. All my binge watching on Netflix and Amazon has altered how I watch shows.

Anyway, I really like The Last Ship. Like really like it. I was so not expecting this last year when it first aired. I only picked it up because it reminded me of the show Last Resort that was prematurely canceled. It was summer and I had a shortage of TV shows. I’m so glad I did.

This season was better than the last in many ways. I didn’t feel like a ship romance was being forced on me, the characters were better developed, and I feel like the action was better.

So many explosions!

Love the Aussie they picked up. Best fighter.

I really enjoyed the way they did the season finale. You thought it was going to be the fight between the ship and the sub, and that was awesome, but that was just the beginning. Fight wise, that was bigger, but the ending really set it up for the next season and gave you a great reason to come back. I like that.

After being beat down a lot this season, not to the point where you felt hopeless but close, the ending made you believe that they might actually survive this whole ordeal. Don’t get me wrong, they still have a lot of work ahead of them, but this was a major victory in the war.

4/5

Pilot Review:

I didn’t know much about this show going in, just that a ship was involved. I saw part of an ad for it while my husband was watching NASCAR and it was enough to pique my interest.

Now having watched the pilot episode I’m looking forward to more. The basics are a US Navy ship on a secret mission that even the Captain didn’t know the full extent of comes out of radio silence after four months to find out the world is being decimated by a disease. Turns out the two scientists on his ship have been working on finding a cure and they think they might have found the missing link.

The first episode mainly deals with the ship finding out that the world is screwed and more than likely their families are dead. It also sets up future conflicts fairly well with an attack made by who they think are Russians. Of course there’s also a spy because there seems to always be with these sorts of things.

There’s already been a romantic relationship teased between two lieutenants, hopefully it doesn’t play a huge part and at least they don’t appear to be married. There’s also some tension between the Captain and his XO. It will be interesting to see how this story develops and just how much will be seen of the world outside the ship.
