Yet again, another quality show gets the axe thanks to ABC’s “death slot” (Thursday at 8PM). It’s a wonder why ABC bothers launching new shows in this timeslot, when nothing in this timeslot has gotten a second season since 2009!
This time, the victim is Last Resort. The series stars Scott Speedman and Andre Braugher as officers on a renegade Navy submarine, caught in the middle of a government cover up. Lots of action, a solid storyline, and a lot of eye candy!
I actually gave up watching 30 Rock so that I could watch Last Resort (the joys of DVR conflicts), but I guess I was in the minority.
Thankfully, the network will air all 13 episodes, and Last Resort co-creator Shawn Ryan promises a “kick-ass” ending.
