DVD Review: The Last Ship Season 1
The Last Ship is pure buttery popcorn for TV. Produced by Michael Bay, the series follows the USS Nathan James, on it’s important mission to find a cure for a world wide pandemic that is decimating the world’s population. the Nathan James is the last safe place to be on earth, and luckily she was already on a secret mission to find a cure before the plague really took hold, so they have everything they need to find and produce a cure, if they can just get the right ingredients. Oh, and they also have a Russian spy inboard…
It’s an interesting premise and one that works well with plenty of scope for action, with a surprising amount of gunfights and varied locations.
Of course the best thing about The Last Ship is the fact that Jane Cobb is on the crew. I mean, Adam Baldwin. It’s the characters that make the show, and you don’t get much better than Baldwin, and he comes packing a bunch of winning one liners to keep everything from getting too serious.
