STARRING Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin

BASED on the novel by William Brinkley

THE LAST SHIP takes place in a world decimated by a global pandemic.   The first episode starts with Rachel Scott’s mission to find a cure to a deadly virus and she is able to get the Pentagon to assign a navel vessel commanded by Captain Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) to find some primordial virus samples in the South Pole.  After four months, they find the virus has been genetically engineered into a stronger killer and the world is thrown into anarchy by the pandemic.   Chandler’s new mission is to make sure Rachel makes the cure to save the world that is left.

 

THE LAST SHIP is a world that could be all too real if a global pandemic ever happened.  The Earth is a fragile place with the threat of viral terrorism being one of many frightening possibilities.   However, THE LAST SHIP is also a tense thriller which gets better with each episode.   Dane plays a respected commander that his loyal crew follows and this same commander wants to save the world so he can get back to his wife and children.   His crew’s quest is to survive and get fuel and supplies of the ship while trying to evade a rogue Russian admiral.  The first three episodes make me want to see what happens next and what challenges Chandler and his crew will face next in a world on the brink.  His crew shows great bravery and heroism in the face of whatever danger faces them.  I can’t wait to see where this show goes and how it will end.
