    ABC's Last Resort for Thursdays at 8/7c

    *Note that this review does not contain any specific elements of the series or bonus features, as I do not want to hinder the experience for anyone. Read official (plot) descriptions if you would like to know more.* Successes: This show is definitely a complex, entertaining, and unique concept, yet it remains entirely believable for the first half of the series. All of the acting is first rate and can be attributed as the best part of the show, while the special effects and cinematography hold their own as well. The Biggest Accolades I Give to Last Resort: Due to the realistic nature of the set-up, this series can act as a potential warning for conflict resolution (or lack there-of) within international disputes. It also serves as a haunting, albeit critical, wake-up call to how America operates at times. Failures: What truly hinders this program is that it was placed on ABC as a last resort, if you will, to try and find an audience in a time period that has not worked well for the network in years (the last successful show in the 8/7c Thursday time slot was "Ugly Betty", a much different series). As such, it inevitably failed within the target demographic. By the time the ending of the show comes, the writing team had to craft an ending that should have been stretched over 22 episodes into a final four out of thirteen. The action becomes scattered and unfocused, the characters unhinged, and the series buckles under its own weight. The In Between: The special features are a good batch for a cancelled series, totaling in almost an hour of content. However, given the brevity of each feature (most of which run under five minutes), there is little room to delve deep into the series. Ultimately: Unfortunately, had this show been allowed a full order the series would have been one of the year's best. As it stands, however, Last Resort is compelling and provocative--especially early on--yet not entirely satisfying or believable. Two immediate suggestions that would have made this release better would be additional episodes--so as to resolve the storyline in a more believable fashion--and special features that would delve farther below the surface. Neither is likely to occur, so as it stands this is a solid release for a show that never quite came back to port. If you liked this series, two other interesting but swiftly cancelled series on ABC are Red Widow (2013) and Missing (2012). Both of these shows are more female-centric, but hold similar gravitas to Last Resort.

    This was an excellent tv show with good acting. Andre and Scott were great in their characters and the plot was very different from what we are used to on a tv show. Could this happen in real life? Maybe. The characters had depth. Would the plot last two maybe three seasons we will never know. The location and cinematography was excellent along with the added CGI. This series would have fared better on cable tv instead of the Disney Network.

    Another example of a show that was cancelled before it should have been. Loved the action and drama within the show. The characters were well developed and you rooted for the crew. I just wish ABC gave it more of a chance. It is so much better than most of the shows on today. If given a chance, watch this series.

    This is a very interesting topic to deal with. It could be a situation that might happen in the near future. I enjoyed this series, but hope it never really happens to the planet.

    I think this show is different than other shows. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. Scott Speedman is amazing.
