The Last Ship – season 1

It’s pretty bad. Bad. Toxic, macho, military American jingoism.

BUT I started watching season 1 (2014) because it’s based on a global viral pandemic that has wiped out over 80% of the world’s population.

Something I feared MIGHT happen March 2020.

There’s plenty of science in this otherwise dumbass ACTION show.

The Last Ship is a 218-person crew of an unaffected U.S. Navy Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, that has been tasked with supporting a scientist trying to develop a vaccine.

It’s a typical Michael Bay project. Cliche dialogue. Predictable, sentimental story lines.

Most of the cast look like Hollywood actors, not people. How many pretty young females crew American destroyers in real life? 😀

I do like Rhona Mitra as Dr. Rachel Scott. She’s like Lara Croft trying to save the world by inventing a vaccine.

And Charles Parnell as the Master Chief Petty Officer is terrific. Later starring in Top Gun, I’m betting he’s in high demand right now.

The show is popular — despite low ratings with critics.

Tons of action. Especially explosions.
