Last Resort


Last Resort


When you watch the episodes of Last Resort, you almost forget that it is just a TV show, because the series looks exactly like a high-budget Hollywood movie. The TV show was filmed in Hawaii by Sony Entertainment and revolves around the fictional submarine USS Colorado (an Ohio-class nuclear submarine equipped with mid and long range thermonuclear missiles). At one day Captain of USS Colorado, Marcus Chaplin receives an order to fire the deadly missiles at Pakistan. His first-time reaction was to execute the order, but meanwhile, when he checks the instruction and verifies order proceeding consequences he becomes stickling about the order he has got. As it is stated in the instructions, even such kind of disastrous order should come via standard protocol. However, in this case order have passed by a special mode used only in the case of one event: "USA is totally destroyed by an enemy". Chaplin feels some doubts about this order and ask the mysterious person from Washington (the one who issued the order) to repeat it in strict accordance with the instruction. In that moment he finds himself dismissed, and his vice Lieutenant Commander Sam Kendal was immediately put in charge. But Kendal asks the same confirmation of the order as instruction demands. As he does this, their vessel suffers hard friendly fire from USS Illinois stealthy standing nearby. Chaplin takes the command and heads USS Colorado to a distinct island at the midst of Indian Ocean. As submarine arrives to the island the crew manages to fix major consequences of the attack. But new issue arises on horizon: the squadron of US bombers is on the way to destroy the rebellious submarine, which has been declared America's most dangerous enemy. The situation has got more heat as Chaplin tries to stop bombers threatening "Washington" by readying missile launch targeted at the US East Coast. Such an entangled plot is perfectly accompanied by equally well combined ensemble cast. Marcus Chaplin is impersonated by House M.D. star Andre Braugher (you remember Dr. Darryl Nolan for sure), while XO Sam Kendal is played by a Lycan-Vampire Hybrid, Scott Speedman, from "Underworld". There is another mysterious character in Last Resort - Lieutenant Grace Shepard , a daughter of powerful US admiral and an undercover leader of the crew. She is portrayed by Harry's Law star Daisy Betts.
