The Last Ship

Is anyone watching?

I saw the previews forever thinking how good the show could be. Has not disapointed so far. Missed the first few episodes, but caught up recently thanks to On Demand.

The wife wanted to watch the first episode. She said halfway through that she didn't really like it, but in the "I don't like what is going on at this exact moment" way. I told her she didn't have to watch the later episodes, but she goes, "No, now I want to see what happens."

I have one giant question about something, but won't ask until a little while later in case somebody hasn't heard of the show ans wants to play catch up.

I like it so far. I just hope it doesn't end up like the Submarine defection show Last Resort. That started really well but never got the viewers, so the end got butchered.

If you were never in the Navy, it's decent entertainment. Writing isn't exactly awe inspiring, but there are far worse shows on TV. TNT seems to be trying to step up their game.

Personally, I'm looking forward to Legends. Sean Bean deserves a good show where his character doesn't die in the first season

The series is going well IMO.

The Last Ship

I'm enjoying this show,which probably means it will be cancelled after this season. Wasn't too impressed with the teasers but the actual show is progressing well. I am enjoying seeing Adam Baldwin again as I enjoyed his character on Firefly.

Have been enjoying the show myself.

And having also been in the Navy there are parts that I have enjoyed and that they spent time actually paying attention to some details but obviously had to ignore some others. For example when they thought there was a contamination on board the ship they set Condition William. Something most folks would not know what it means.

There have been some obvious technical issues and "far stretch" things...but overall a pretty good show.

I'm getting to the point where I look forward to the Summer season of tv. Between The Ship, The Strain and Falling Skies I'm a pretty happy camper Sunday nights. Also looking forward to Legends.

I'm entertained, which is really all I want out of it. I'm doing my best at turning off my "that's not right/proper/how it's done" switch.

As long as they don't go crazy with things, I'm good. If the Nathan James had been pooping out F-35's at will, that's an example of a game over situation. My wife is still making it through the whole episodes, an that is the benchmark. I'd watch by myself, but if she wants to be around, even better.

^Agreed. And it is nice to see some little things having attention as well so.
