FuryOfFirestorm: Any Pie Left: We watched Last Resort purely on the strength of Andre. Andre is one of those actors that makes anything awesome. Loved his "Thief" series. Last Resort however, while an interesting premise for a movie, has had some suck-ass plotting as well as badly-written secondary characters. There was no good way to sustain the story premise more than one season. It would be nice if they wrote a wrap-up episode but if that happens it will probably be for the DVD and not air.Yeah, that show's premise didn't sound like it could be stretched over 22 one-hour episodes. It would have worked better as a TV movie or a mini-series.
Hebalo: Any Pie Left: I don't watch anything else on ABC except Once Upon A Time, which we made Appointment Television for the entire family since the first episode. I watched the opener for a goof, but damned if they didn't hook me with byzantine plotting, interesting takes on old charters and stories, and a lot of style, plus a great cast. I love the guy that plays Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold, he's marvelously over the top. All the women are hot, and the villainess chews scenery as good as Alexis used to in Dallas.First season of 'Once' was decent. This season is a dreadful cavalcade of Disney characters. Too bad.
FuryOfFirestorm: HotWingAgenda: Poor Dichen Lachmann. She's hot as fark and a good actor, but being on Dollhouse with that monstrosity chick that was on Buffy has give Dichen the Joss Whedon actress curse.No, I think it has more to do with the fact that her name is "Dichen Lachmann".Sounds like some angry German dude, not a hot young chick.
ExperianScaresCthulhu: fusillade762: NeoCortex42: Hopefully the show can at least wrap things up with a short epilogue. Maybe just launch all the nukes.THAT would be awesome. Ending the show by starting World War Three would be a great troll move by the writers.Like new V's troll move at the end of Season 2/the series?

Daedalus27: Last Resort had lots of potential, but I think the 8pm timeslot on Thursday hurt them as it seemed like more of a 9pm or 10pm kind of show. It had it's stupid moments to be sure and dear god, some idiotic plot points, but the overall concept was sound.
fusillade762: AdolfOliverPanties: As much as I love Terry O'Quinn, I don't care about this.But subby burying the lede that they also canceled "Last Resort?"That farking sucks!!!!!Yeah, I was starting to like that show. Even if they did do stupid stuff like communicating by radio with a submerged submarine.
Brick-House: The thing with last resort is, they develop an ongoing story, bring it to a cliff hanger, then cancel it. To that I say, FARK YOU ABC!!!
