Loved it.

Everything these people do is the end of the world serious.

The Submarine battling was energetic which they can't possibly keep up every week, but their internal struggles seem to be just as problematic as being trapped between Pakistan and the States at war.

Pass. I've already seen "Crimson Tide." I don't need to endure 13 weeks of it.

Haven't watched it yet but I read the script and even in written format, you could cut the tension with a knife (especially early on). I'm really looking forward to seeing it on screen.

Last Resort was Awesome
I hope you say that next year.

(this is a joke only a few will get but will become apparent later. It's a teaser.)

It's pretty good, but the pilot feels like it's missing a few scenes in some spots and some of the characters do weird stuff.

I didn't like the funny looking girl from Doll House. I liked the big girl from Doll House. Still pass.

Re: Last Resort was Awesome.

Enjoyed it... When I saw the sub's troops, I half expected to see Sequest DSV logos on their shoulders..

Implausible as it is, I'm hooked to see how it develops...

What's funny is that aside from the control room of the Colorado, seaQuest's sets look more like a submarine than the sub sets on Last Resort. I know there are production reasons for the sets looking the way they do, but they remind me of the Cheyenne Mountain Stargate sets more than the interior of a nuclear submarine.

Honestly I think that describes like almost every female under 35 from Doll House... Hell that describes almost every actress under 35 on a Joss Whedon show.

3 seasons. Yes there are aliens. A trip into space with their submarine, because of relativity, they were gone for hours yet it was a ten year journey which completely changed the tone of the planet from first stage TNG happy to the middle of DS9 paranoid between season 2 and three.

There is also time travel.
