Welcome On Board, join discussion!
I can't wait for this show to start! I just hope it makes it to a second season...
This is one of the three new shows I will be recording.
Who knows, it's not on NBC, it may stand a chance.
I'm setting up a timer for it. As long as it doesn't get canceled after just a few weeks I'll probably end up watching it.
You don't need to, full pilot is available on Yahoo:
I really liked the pilot. I'm hoping this show becomes something awesome.
I stopped watching. My dad was a submariner and I always enjoyed submarine movies. I'm a little bit familiar with the missile's launch protocols and seeing a captain launching missiles whenever and wherever he wants was a turning point for me.
I thought it was a great start as well. Will keep watching this one.
I really loved it. I didn't expect to have the emotional reaction I did to it, especially this scene:
In the bar in the last 10 minutes, when the Navy Seal broke down crying saying it was his fault, and the bartender consoled him.
I don't know why, but after the previous tense 48 minutes, that scene was just very powerful for me.
Loved this first episode!!!
Wow, best new show of the Fall Season. Wow!
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.
Enjoyed the first episode, but that being said, I thought the first 18 minutes of Flash Forward was one of the best 18 minutes ever on the small screen and that show failed to earn a second season.
Haven't watched it yet, but looking forward to it. Also would be interested in Mike's perspectiv
I didn't like it. Don't know why yet ... I just didn't believe the characters. It seemed a little formulaic to me.
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.
As one who used to be bothered by such "inaccuracies" it is a lot easier when you realize these shows do NOT take place in our world this is as different to us as Star Wars. Bitching about this is no different than complaining because an alien wasn't portrayed right in Star Wars or Star Trek.
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.
