I have long been a fan of Andre Braugher, Scott Speedman Shawn Ryan and Karl Gajdusek, and the four together, in a drama, makes for a great combination. "Last Resort" is a good drama that unfortunately lasted only 13 episodes.
The story involves a U.S. Navy missile submarine "Colorado," which is given a mistrustful order to launch nuclear missiles in Pakistan. The captain refuses to comply with the order but another U.S. forces submarine carries out the order. The Colorado's captain and crew are then held responsible for the attack and have to go rogue, stationing themselves on a South Pacific island while they try to find out who they can reliance and what the truth is.
In a way, I am glad that this drama ended with only 13 episodes. Loose ends were tightened and it works. I do not think this one should have gone beyond 13 episodes. It started off a bit rough, but ended well and leaves you wanting more... isn't that would a good show is all about.
ABC will release all thirteen episodes of Last Resort on 3-Disc DVD set on July 02, and will come out with the following bonus materials.
Last Resort complete series is now available for pre-order at Amazon
