    ^Why did they even have to go there with the story line? Would you really risk everything including your entire crew over three hostages? And then not even check to see what you were turning over to the piss-ant island boss? They have a massive much more interesting plot to work with yet decide to focus in on this island kingpin plot. What a disappointment.

    They did have an opportunity to have the Perseus break (or was it sabotaged - oooohhhhh) and the rest of nonsense in Washington.

    Yeah, the island "kingpin" is a worthless plot device.

    My "plot point issue" is why don't the bad guys (whoever they really are) just kill the chick in Washington DC? The one who designed Perseus (sp?).

    And what is the point of converting the wife of the XO into believing her husband is a traitor? Psyops to be sure, but why?

    And holding a hero's dead body hostage was just about enough to turn me against the "Powers That Be" with no questions asked. That's what terrorists do.

    We never saw his dead body, just heard the shots. Maybe he isn't really dead. Maybe they will use him as leverage in the future. Why didn;t the captain demand the return of the dead body? He never even asked for it!

    Not the guy that was shot on the island but the Captain's son, who is being refused burial.

    Yes, that's who I meant. The Captain's son's body is being held as a negotiating tool. That's what terrorists do.

    Sorry, yes I see what you are saying. My brain was stuck on something else obviously. :)

    I think the problem are the side plots. Half of them are unnecessary or wildly unbelievable. The only side stories I really care about so far are Christine's and James'.

    Canceled but the rest of the 13 episodes will be shown.

    I'm reminded again why I don't usually start watching a new series until after the first season. :(

    Yeah, I hear ya. I've been pretty good at not starting to watch new shows lately but I just had to start watching Last Resort. At least they get to run out their season. Maybe they can re-tool and re-shoot some of the last episodes to give it a good ending.

    I hope they also canned the individual that first gave approval for this show in the first place.

    A little more info on the cancellation here.

    I had not remembered FlashForward being in the same time slot but didn't that show go on vacation for a few months? I thought the audience disappeared while the show was AWOL.

    Yeah, Flash Forward went on a short hiatus for a 're-tool" and that pretty much killed it.

    Flash Forward also wasn't up against the NFL.

    Thank you for the link!

    Amazing, 21st century just arrived, technology hits the sky, Mars rover is traveling across Martian landscape and... we still are talking about time slots!

    I hope they are able bring it to some kind of closure. I remember when Kings ended on NBC and having no closure what so ever. Perhaps they should end it with a nuclear holocaust lol.

    Shawn Ryan, the show's creator, promises a great ending. I forget his exact quote but the word "bang" was in there.

    I hear ya. There are very few shows I watch that I can tell you night they're on let alone what the time slot is. They could be on at 3:00 in the morning and it wouldn't change my viewing habits very much.

    I'm not sure it'll be that great. This is show if full of plot holes large enough to drive a submarine through.
