Who knows, it's not on NBC, it may stand a chance.

I don't know why, but after the previous tense 48 minutes, that scene was just very powerful for me.

Three nukes in the first episode.
It's a stretch but falls within a limited strike scenario. What I question is the sub's captain launching a SBLM equipped with MIRVS without reprograming it's targets using one warhead and scraping the others to make his point.

I wrote ABC an email today...about this New series "LAST RESORT" that is extremely critical and disrespectful of those who wear Dolphins...
I'm definitely not thin skinned...but if these network entertainment entities can produce Cop Shows or Medical programs.. with some degree of accuracy... then By God they owe it to those of us who wear Dolphins.. to portray us as accurately as possible..
To suggest we are fragile.. or disrespectful of authority or to each other... to the exclusion of the Mission...the boat...and the brotherhood.. pisses me off to no end... To not even be able to get it right in terms of technical accuracy.. terminology etc... is as ridiculous as it gets... Calling a Head on a boat a Latrine.. is pathetic inaccuracy and ignorance.. Yea its only TV...but it is I feel encumbent on all of us.. in our interactions with the public... friends etc.. to always strive to set the record straight. and to continue to raise the BULL**** Flag at every oppurtunity with ABC
To Those of us qualified on Submarines, and proudly wear our Dolphins.. This ABC program, does very little to honor, and respect Our Brotherhood... and the Submarine Force.

As a submarine veteran I had no desire to watch this program. It is beyond a stretch of the imagination that something like this could take place. I normally can suspend my disbelief but not this time. Below is just one of many comments by some of my submarine veteran friends. I don't think too many old boat sailors will be watching. Not that it will make a difference to ABC.
If I didn't watch shows that got my field of expertise wrong (computers, programming, networking, geek stuff, etc) I'd never watch TV. While I do respect your opinion, and thank you for past service, I don't agree with not watching a TV show just because it's not technically perfect or plausible.

If this was advertised as a factual documentary following a REAL submarine or retelling a true story then you would have a point. Of course I also know people like to be offended and complain about things so what more should I expect.
As for the show I liked it, looks like the Pres. or CEO or whatever he is-- is pulling a Wag the dog to prevent impeachment.
