Last Resort (ABC 2012-2013, Andre Braugher, Scott Speedman)

Published

on

Action adventure meets fantasy series Last Resort follows the crew of the ballistic missile carrying nuclear submarine “Colorado” – the most powerful such vessel in the world. Captained by Marcus Chaplin things go seriously awry when the sub is ordered to fire it’s nuclear weapons at a foreign country. Not believing the orders the captains demands verification but instead finds the sub itself fired upon. Even worse they now find they are classed as rogue enemies, taking the decision to flee Chaplin and his crew end up on a strange and definitely dangerous island which they use as a base to try and clear their name.

Last Resort is like a return to classic genre TV of the 1960′s whilst at the same time referencing such modern shows as Lost. There is even a hint of Seaquest DSV in there too! Sadly it didn’t find an audience and was cancelled after one run of 13 episodes.
