Didn't see a thread for this. Thoughts on the first episode?

I can see why it's on Sky 1 and not Sky Atlantic, but it was decent enough to get me to watch again.

I enjoyed it. A few scenes were very tense and the characters seem interesting. I originally thought the island was going to be deserted and was worried it would turn into a LOST clone so it was nice to see it actually be inhabited by a civilised society. I can't wait to see how it all pans out. A plus was Autumn Reeser appearing half naked.

I really, really enjoyed it, I just hope it doesn't turn really weird like Lost. I hope it becomes a battle between them and whoever was shootiing missioes at them, I haven't read about it on IMDB so I don't know what is due to happen.

I liked it. Looking forward to finding out what the seals did, and what happens to the loved ones of the crew.

The thread is in Cult unlike the US pace thread which is here.

Strange. I can't see why this would be considered "cult" by any definition, even the very vague definition on DS.

It might go cult, if black smoke appears on the Island.

Enjoyed it, looking forward to next episode (even though I know this will be cancelled.) It felt different to the other fifty-billion programmes I'm watching...

A cautious nod of approval here. It was good enough to get me to watch episode 2. I wonder what next, since all the action has already happened?

Andre Braugher is a great character actor in my book

Bit of a pedantic point here, but I'm a bit concerned how 'Hollywood' is now trivializing the radiation and pulse affects of a nuclear detonation these days. We see it here, 24, the new Batman film. They seem to think that as long as the detonation is not actually in a built up area it doesn't matter, which is very wrong.

Each to their own...

Loving the series so far, not quite sure where it can go, but so far so good

yeah, I'm enjoying it so far. but not sure how much longer they can stretch out the island as a base. surely the story needs to be them trying to get home. then once home either proving themselves as the victims in this and finding out who was behind it. so far we only have the girl (and admiral Shepherd) doing any digging.
If this show got a season 2 I could see the season 1 finale as them landing on an isolated Alaskan shore with season 2 being about a group of them on the run on the mainland trying to find out what's happening. but as there is little hope a s2, this could be sped up a little (although might make the series seem too rushed).

Not a bad third episode this week, with the 'cargo' Chaplin had to get for the Drug/War 'Lord'....and Dichen Lachman getting her kit off.

I just wish there was more scenes in Washington...and a bit of Tension wouldn't go a miss, the Sub action was laughable, being guided by Sophie 'Ping'.

Yeah and the psychological impact on the global population. Look what effect 9/11 had on much of the world. Those people on the island should be worried about a preemptive US nuclear strike. At least they keep showing the stand off to be the top news story on the cable news channels.

To be fair, though, it's an action/drama TV show and not a documentary

Also, the nuke detonation (The one in India, right? That the sub was originally commanded to do?), or at least the aftermath of it, is obviously not important to the story as much as the fact that it was detonated for an as-yet unknown reason.

Gutted - I'm really enjoying this show. To many series keep getting cancelled.

I just hope the last episode wraps it all up - but I guess not if they were hoping for a second...

The show's creator has apparently tweeted this ..

Shawn Ryan @ShawnRyanTV
News is true. No Back 9 for #LastResort. We will film and and air all 13 episodes. We're going to give you no-holds barred kick-ass ending.
I suppose you don't say something like that if you've already got all 13 episodes in the can. i hope so anyway, as i do like the premise of the show so it would be nice if they can actually film a proper ending.

If you are not interested by now, it is definitely not for you.

Episode One I enjoyed, lots of action, Episode Two seemed to be talking heads, so it's now deleted from my planner.
