New Series “The Last Ship” Comands Attention

I was torn to watch last night between watching “Rising Star” or “The Last Ship” on TNT. Considering that I read the devastating reviews of the former, I am glad I met the decision to commit to the Drama.

And I think you should take a look at it too.

With the presence of a full force action movie, rather than an hour-long drama, the pilot pushed its way into our Sunday evening, never letting go, with dramatically and well performed roles, from the leads, all the way to the minor characters.
The man formerly known as McSteamy, Eric Dane, took control off every frame he stepped in, and not in the cartoonish annoying way he did in Grey’s Anatomy (can you tell I was not a fan?), to my surprise filling this role as the Commander of a Naval vessel with ease, without loosing his charm. Faced with a seemingly impossible situation – a pandemic killed off most of the Earth’s population, while they were on a mission that forced them into radio silence – the Commander and it’s crew, including a CDC Doctor, Dr. Rachel Scott (played well by Rhona Mitra) have no choice but to become a solution to a problem that seems to doom the world. They have become the only hope.

Here is the trailer:

Summer TV Shows – Something To Look Forward To

Summer break – many things come to mind, when I hear those two words, good television is usually not one of them. It has traditionally for me been always the time of waiting between shows (okay, I don’t just watch TV and sit around at home, but I do find a good show a relaxing break from writing, and the stress of owning a business) for something good to watch, that does not require a trip to the theater.

This year seems to be different. Some shows have caught my attention.

1. Murder In The First (June 9th TNT)

Yes, you saw that correct, this show includes someone from the Harry Potter cast, all grown up! Tom Felton joins this highly anticipated drama. Sounds interesting!

2. Extant (July 9th CBS)

Halle Berry is coming to the small screen! I am looking forward to the new SciFi show. Here is taste:

3. The Last Ship (June 22nd TNT)

What if the only hope we have laid on a ship? Yes, this is another outbreak, epidemic story, and we have seen many of those (fail), but after watching the trailer I want to give it a try. At least Eric Dane (McSteamy from Grey’s Anatomy) is an incentive to watch show that could be a good premise, if it has been realized to its full potential. Directed by Michael Bay, do I need to say more?

Happy Watching!
