Editorial Reviews

The U.S. ballistic submarine Colorado sits 500 feet below the Indian Ocean when orders come in to fire nuclear missiles at Pakistan. Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) and XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) both question the legitimacy of the order and ask for confirmation, but instead receive missile fire from another U.S. submarine. Left for dead at the bottom of the ocean, the Colorado finds refuge on an exotic island. As troops come toward the island, the members of the crew must work to clear their names and find out who is involved in a conspiracy of nuclear proportions. From creators Karl Gajdusek (Oblivion) and Shawn Ryan (TV’s “The Shield”), LAST RESORT – THE COMPLETE SERIES is a critically-acclaimed drama filled with action and suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars GAWD what a maxi series January 24, 2013
I just saw the last episode of this series just a few minutes ago. I am hoping the DVD is coming out soon. It is too good for TV. This series in a way is like the mini series of old. I watched all the previous episodes on demand today.It was amazing ride

Andre Braugher is amazing as Marcus Chaplin, the captain of the nuclear submarine Colorado. He and his second in command Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) are told to do a nuclear strike from an unsecured line. When asking for repeat conformation, his sub is fired on by another US submarine. It has overtones of Fail Safe with all the political intrigue. The tensions is high & powerful. It does not let up until the final episode...and still there is air of mystery at the end. You wonder who is a friend and who is a traitor, both in the crew of the Colorado and in Washington DC.

The supporting cast including Daisy Betts, Robert Patrick, Jessy Schram and Sahr Ngaujah who adds to this piece so well. It is not a star vehicle for any actor. It is a character study drawn over 13 episodes. There are no weak performances

In a way, I am glad this show lasted only 13 episodes, it was complete. Loose ends were tightly tighten and it works. I do not think this show should have gone further than this 13 episode arc...it began and ended! It is filling and leaves you wanting more..isnt that would a good series is all about.

I will say this, this show is better than Missing: The Complete First Season ever was

Years ago I would have thought this storyline was preposterous. However, today it seems like this could actually happen. I thank the writers of this show for having the guts to feature a commanding officer who is willing to do more than follow orders. It is the responsibility of the officers to follow orders, but to also think first to determine if their orders are coming from an authorized source and if they are indeed in the best interest of America, and not just the agenda of misguided leadership. Great show!

Unpredictable from the first episode to the last. Nothing like it on television. A great journey with Andre Braugher at his best since "Homicide."

From creators Shawn Ryan ("The Shield", "Welcome to Hollywood", "The Unit") and Karl Gajdusek ("Oblivion", "Trespass") comes "Last Resort", an American military drama which aired on ABC from September 2012 to January 2013.

The series would star Andre Braugher ("Homicide: Life on the Street", "The Mist", "City of Angels"), Scott Speedman ("Underworld" films, "Felicity"), Australian actress Daisy Betts ("Shutter", "Caught Inside", "Persons Unknown"), French actress Camille De Pazzis ("Le Premier Jour: Du Reste De Ta Vie", Quand j'etais chanteur"), Dichen Lachman ("Dollhouse", "Neighbours", "Aquamarine"), Daniel Lissing ("Crownies"), Sahr Ngaujah ("The Signal", "Stomp the Yard"), Autumn Reeser ("The Girl Next Door", "The O.C.", "No Ordinary Family"), Jessy Schram ("Unstoppable", "American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile") and Robert Patrick ("Terminator 2″, "The Unit", "Walk the Line").

While the premiere of "Last Resort" brought in over 9 million viewers, due to drop in viewership, ABC decided not to take on a full season but did air the 13 episodes that were created, including a season finale which would give fans closure.

And now "Last Resort: The Complete Series" will be released on DVD courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

"Last Resort" revolves around the crew of the U.S. Navy Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, the USS Colorado. The crew led by Commanding Officer Marcus Chaplin (portrayed by Andre Braugher) and Lt. Commander Sam Kendal (portrayed by Scott Speedman) pick up a U.S. Navy SEAL team off Pakistan's coast.

While everything is going perfectly fine inside the USS Colorado, Lt. Grace Shepard (portrayed by Daisy Betts) receives an encoded message to launch nuclear ballistic missiles at Pakistan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Show too bad it had to end June 11, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This was a good serial based show but it was not renewed. Fortunately they were able to do the last episode after the cancellation so they were able to tie up the loose ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABC Cancelled??????? May 15, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I loved this show. I just can't understand ABC. Sometimes it takes more than 13 episodes to create a following. I thought that it was well done.
