Re: Last Resort was Awesome.
Well remember the episodes of fluff are there to help them draw out the story for 5 seasons, not because they don't have enough story to fill a season. That is why miniseries are generally such a step up from your standard show, because they can take that premise that would need to be drawn out and filled in with extraneous b and c plots to fill a TV show and just cut right down to the meat of the story.
