OK, a couple pts to the writer's on the detour to Naples to air freight the seeds (sensible, but the shoot down - bit much #1 but expected). Interesting twist on the British sellout (but getting the contact on board via the rescue - bit much #2?).

Expect Chandler's kids to be an issue toward season-cliff-hanger time.

Brit escapes with seeds, communication's officer just happens to find out that he called the Greek navy minutes before it occures. How clichť. That was really lame.

I thought the episode was great, though I'm probably bias since I love cruises and exploring the high seas. I was enjoying the voyage into the storm and all the special effects.

Fun Sept 24th episode. Action always top notch.

Lucia in that dress though....

Man this show is funny. Good action and eye candy, but the storyline is beyond lame. Poor little Georgio has daddy issues.

They are getting Peter Weller to really go over the top and they seem to be purposely going for laughs. The "plot" is not important as mixing in some great actions scenes and a pool party. It also seems like they have went the FX and AMC route and are including a lot more profanity. Loved the "shit" from Omar right before he was burned to a crisp.

I like Weller and it's a fun role, but the "kids" are a really ill fit in terms of casting...

Georgio is just bad. I would have been fine of we never saw him again. But the daughter is way hot, and IMO, doing a good job over acting in an enjoyable way. Not sure what to make of the younger "smart" son yet.

After a shaky start, it is definitely back to the show it used to be.

That's what I'm finding too. The older two kids I guess, simply don't fit with the dad. If his kids were that incompetent, he'd never let them handle anything and choose decent people around him.

I like how they're using Weller's day job (history professor) to flesh out his character.

Re: The Last Ship (TNT) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 8/20/17

Wow! What a twist!

October 1st spoiler:

Spoiler:
I always thought something was up when Lucia kept making weird subtle facial expressions during her scenes with Giorgio and her father. Initially, you think she is just disgusted with how Giorgio is being treated. But now it makes total sense that the other son is dead!

Colour us surprised at that. If I was that invested I'd rewatch the last couple to see if that made sense w the interactions.

Re: The Last Ship (TNT) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 8/20/17

Just got caught up with the last 2 episodes

and yeah I was also surprised with the big reveal that Vellek's son was all in his head. Vellek is a total whack job.

2 hour finale is this Sunday. I'm glad that this will be getting at least one more season and if season 5 is the last, I'm good with it.

I was also surprised when the Bond clone bit it. Figured they would redeem him and make him part of the cast. Guess not.

Problem with the other twist is the execution. Way too many times in prior episodes where it doesn't make sense that the third kid wasn't really there. But very few movies or TV shows ever pull that twist off well.

I don't know about the other two kids acknowledging the presence of imaginary son in past episodes, but in this one the dead son is facially reacting to what the live kids are saying.

Seems a waste of Jade Chynowith's hot little body to put her in that uniform.

It was when the reverse would happen that was real troublesome. The other two kids are really bad actors, or they were not clued in to the fact that the other brother wasn't really there.

Pretty good season despite what was some really bad acting by everybody on the wrong side of our heroes. Weller had his moments, but so many scenes just didn't work. And what was with his face at the end of the final episode? He should stick to directing.

Re: The Last Ship (TNT) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 8/20/17

I just realized something from the Oct 1st episode.

I remember watching the dinner scene and noticed Giorgio didnít have his explosion/burn wounds, and immediately thought it was a blooper.

But now that Iím thinking about it, the scene was developed correctly as a flashback and the viewers were given hints along the way, before the reveal at the end of the episode.

I wonder how many clues there were along the way.

I also found it interesting that The Nathan James performed two maneuvers which were both credited to a woman (commander, I suppose). I assume they were real actions that turned up in the writers' research.

My wife wondered the same - made up or real? Have to see whether the writers did some research or hand-waving.

So season 5 is the Latin American threat? I guess it makes sense it would be the last continent heard from. (Season 6 - penguins!)

That season sucked. I mean the action was good, but the plot and villains we're garbage.
