Yes, I know. That's why I asked, because I didn't see how anyone could have thought he was a mole. Especially since the guy wanting to take the shot was the one who had the mole.

Aside from the sheriff and a couple of scientists, have any of Granderson's people really been established? I suspect the mole will be someone introduced in the season premiere who we're just supposed to believe were there all along in the finale.

That was the sheriff who shot the crewmember and somehow took over the bridge single-handedly.
That was an embarrassing piece of writing on a show that's been otherwise pretty good.

Escaped al Qaeda detainees at Guantanamo? No problem.

Russian helicopters and a cruiser full of sailors? Puhleeze.

Jungle warlords? Fuggetaboutit.

Barney Fife by himself with a handgun? Holy shit, we surrender!

It's worse than when the Ferengi took over the Enterprise on Riker's watch. Maybe the little girl should retake the ship.

Re: The Last Ship - Discussion Thread (spoilers possible)

So... are Titus and Co. good, or are they just different flavors of bad?

Waitaminute, waitaminute. So we see Tex's dog for the first time in ages (that I can recall) aboard the ship at the beginning. And then he just takes off without it? And did he check in with Chandler before leaving? So many details abound that these 40-minute episodes (if that, there were a lot of commercial breaks) just don't cover.

Anyhow, that was an exciting ep for sure. Can't wait for next week!


... huh?


... what?


... WHAT?!?!?!

It is Lt Green's or some dead sailor from the Mountain Warfare Team's dog.

Tex shares his cabin with Lt. Greene so naturally, since Greene takes care of the dog, it calls that cabin home as well.

And yeah, where has the dog been all season? Is the Nathan James so short-staffed they're training the dog to work other areas of the ship? Or do all the crew discuss their personal problems with the dog, like Tex was doing? Is the dog the ship's counselor? Hell, now I'm picturing the TNG bridge, with Chandler in Picard's chair, Slattery in Riker's, and the dog in Deanna Troi's chair.

The dog is going to retake the ship.

Once he was a Navy SEAL K9 who didn't like to play by the rules, but after biting his commanding officer, the only rating he could hold was ship's mascot. But when terrorists seize the crew, he's going to show them that they're barking up the wrong tree, because someone's been a baaaaad dog.

Under Siege is so good. I'd watch the dog version. Get Segal to do the voice.

Easier said than done. Some of Seagal's DTV movies are so bad he won't even do his own looping, so suddenly his character will have a completely different voice.

How are they ever going to find the time to book a megastar like Seagal between all his other engagements? They'll have to go second tier and get someone like Jeff Speakman or Michael Dudikoff. You know, still able to bring gravitas to the vocal performance, but a little more available.

They could go for irony and get Chuck "Lone Wolf" Norris.

The Last Ship: Opinions?

Watched the first four episodes. I've been really impressed with the show's production values and intelligent approach to its plot.

I'm sure others will be able to pick holes in it but it has a lot of elements that I've often said would improve other shows and movies including:

1. A sensible approach to quarantine protocols (Prometheus take note);
2. A gay character whose homosexuality is entirely superfluous to the plot;
3. Resource management as a dramatic device;
4. A decent spread of male a female characters in varying roles;
6. Rhona Mitra;
7. Characters who don't have to act like brainless idiots to end up in peril.

Is anybody else enjoying it?

I'll echo what I said in the original thread. It's the best Star Trek show of the last 20 years.
