Last Resort

Series Summary
While deep beneath the ocean's surface, the U.S. ballistic missile submarine Colorado receives orders, over a line designated for use only when the homeland has been wiped out, to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan. When the crew refuses to fire without confirmation of orders, the Colorado is fired on and those aboard declared enemies of the United States. Having no where else to turn, the captain brings the men and women of the Colorado to an island, where they find refuge and a chance at a new life, even as they work to clear their names and go home.

  • The show has one of the most thrilling pilots of recent years, but there are a few growing pains in the subsequent two episodes as the show sorts out the weight it gives stories involving the sub's crew, the locals on the tropical island they commandeer and the people back home who have connections to the sub.

  • I'm not discouraged by the show's early growing pains; the cast is still full of good actors, Last Resort displays an admirable amount of forward momentum and the hiccups along the way are just another indication of how many chances the show is taking. Show More

  • Conflicts and tortured characters abound. Unfortunately, the drama goes somewhat soggy when the camera leaves the tight confines of the submarine and the complex plotlines twist into knots. Show More
