Last Resort, a sophisticated submarine drama-adventure has been sunk, while the mundane, the idiotic and the sub-par enjoy longevity on the airwaves. This show took off running and shined brighter with each episode. Unfortunately, despite great writing, great pacing, gripping suspense, and an engaging cast of characters, Last Resort was never given a chance to succeed! Pity!

It was a good idea. But they tried to settle into a "base situation" too early. They should have kept the pace and the pressure on the ship for a while AND made it more clear that they were SET UP.

Even I stopped watching when it looked like the island was going to be their home for a while.
But the opening episode was hot!
Andre Braugher was on point but he didn't have anyone of equal caliber to play against.
And the "villain" actually VISITS the island?? That came too early!

I started out watching LAST RESORT without a great deal of belief in that they could keep such a premise going for an entire season but the more I watched, the more I started trusting that the writers would indeed be able to do so. The show got better and better and Andre Braugher simply commanded each and every scene he was in. And in the last couple of episodes I could swear there were hints that his character knew a bit more than he let on about was on going on. 

I totally forgot about this show ever being on...Goes to show how much I was network TV...All I watch is cable..Because network TV is crap the last show I watched on ABC was the New V series and you see how well that went....

I would like this to be the BSFS radio subject for November 30 - Hope you show so that we can discuss the writing on this show.  I understand the necessity for a high level of belief or the suspension there of that is needed to enjoy the show -- I want to put that portion aside and dive into the dialogue of the show, the back story of some of the side characters that stunk up the island and so forth -- 

If you want to give yourself a piece of joy in good writing go back and watch Defying Gravity with Malik Yoba and then we have something to compare Last Resort against 

MAN. WHAT HAPPENED TO -UNDERCOVERS- I SAW 3 EPISODES AND IT WAS GONE.

Undercovers -- M & Mrs Jones meet Heart to Heart meets The Avengers -- had potential but was poorly presented and could have had better direction from the chair to make the characters more magnetic -- In fact four episodes without a mission would have done the series well -- I am not a pro I am just an insightful critic

He sat at his desk, woozy. He tried to move, his arms unresponsive. He searched for help, moving into the aisle in his swivel chair only to find all his coworkers had abandoned him. Was he being drugged? If so, it was the simplest scene he could imagine.Whoever was trying this was extremely stupid or extremely powerful. He'd find out soon enough.

Call for abstracts for "Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels"

CFP: Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels, Past and Future (Extension to 3/31/18)

by Brian Yates

This edited volume will offer an opportunity for authors to investigate the ways in which blackness is reimagined in both mainstream and independent comics. Specifically, I propose responding to the following questions: What are the ways in which heroism is redefined by black characters? How are black futures reimagined? What gendered arguments are made through this medium? What are the challenges in presenting to black audiences in this largely white genre? How do the creators depict the continent of Africa and/or communities in the African Diaspora? How are black bodies presented in graphic comics and novels? Finally, how are themes of social justice specific to black communities presented in this…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
