‘The Last Ship’: The Hard Choices

21 July 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of The Last Ship season 1, episode 5. There will be Spoilers.]

-

Part of the enduring appeal of post-apocalyptic fiction is that once unfathomable choices are often made by characters due to inescapable circumstance; tough choices that are not reflexively celebrated or even understood. More than anything, though, these narrative choices represent a risk – something that The Last Ship has, for the most part, steered clear of.

In last night’s episode, ‘El Toro’, we saw the clearest opportunity for the show to make an unpopular yet bold creative choice when Chandler (Eric Dane), Mike Slattery (Adam Baldwin) and their crew were confronted by a low level warlord (El Toro, as played by José Zúñiga) ...

TNT is hoping that viewers will "get on board" with their new post-apocalyptic TV show, The Last Ship. Will this series attract positive ratings so that it can be renewed for a second season or will they sink so that it's cancelled? Stay tuned.

The cast includes Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin, Rhona Mitra, Charles Parnell, Christina Elmore, Michaela McManus, Sam Spruell, Travis Van Winkle, and Tracy Middendorf.

Top 15 Joss Whedon characters: The best of the Buffy, Angel, Firefly bunch

21 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joss Whedon, lauded king of fandom, purveyor of wisdom and de facto overseer of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, celebrates his 50th birthday on Monday (June 23).

Whedon's always had a knack for taking pre-established characters – whether it's The Avengers or a gang of talking toys or the cast of Speed – and making them just that bit more quippy and emotionally rich and awesome. But it's his original small-screen characters that remain his most beloved.

Below, Digital Spy counts down our top fifteen Whedonverse characters. You can vote for your favourite in the poll below, then take to the comments to rank about all the rankings we got wrong and all the favourites we've inevitably left out.

15. Dr Horrible

Neil Patrick Harris's "aspiring supervillain" is never at any point successfully villainous. He's a more immediately loveable extension of Buffy's Nerd Troika – the perpetually overlooked semi-recluse who can barely string a sentence together around his crush, »

"Welcome aboard!" bellows Adam Baldwin, right hand extended and cigar clenched firmly in his mouth, on the deck of the USS Dewey, currently stationed in Naval Base San Diego. "You know the difference between a ship and a boat?" he asks with a knowing smile. "Boats ride on ships!"

TV Review: ‘The Last Ship’

19 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wedding military hardware and a martial mind-set to paranoia about global pandemics, “The Last Ship” is an odd duck — a post-apocalyptic tale with a glimmer of hope, tonally similar to (if not as good as) the late, lamented “Jericho.” It’s left to a hardy naval crew and one inordinately beautiful scientist try to save humanity, without knowing exactly what’s left of it to save. Eric Dane is firmly in square-jawed John Wayne territory as the ship’s captain, on a TNT summer drama with plenty of possibilities but also numerous pitfalls as it seeks to navigate rather treacherous narrative currents.

The USS Nathan James has been off in the Arctic and out of radio contact while a devastating “virus of unknown origin” has decimated humanity. But it turns out the ship was on a secret mission, hosting a paleomicrobiologist (no, really, look it up), Dr. Rachel Scott (Rhona Mitra »

The Last Ship Review – TNT Pushes Drama Until Everything Explodes

The Last Ship Review

Over the last few years, we’ve learned that there are two distinct options when you’re looking at a big budget, television effort. There’s the option to focus a lot of attention on the script’s ability to deliver solid characters and convincing, intelligent plot lines, and then there’s the option to go the road of something like Terra Nova, which started off great, but quickly seemed determined to become a sort of sci-fi Grey’s Anatomy. You might not have too much trouble figuring out which direction Michael Bay is interested in, and how The Last Ship plays.

The easiest demonstration of the choice comes from the support positions we have to assume are, or are not, on the show’s payroll. When our show is about a virus that wipes out a huge portion of the world’s population and the »

The Insider: Rachel Nichols talks about The Inside and Mike Nichols

9 May 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When told that she had a spooky resemblance to Clarice Starling which only added to The Silence of the Lambs (1991) vibe to a TV series where Rachel Nichols [Conan the Barbarian] portrayed a FBI profiler hunting down serial killers, the actress laughs, “That’s so funny you said that!  It happened a lot when I was younger.  The one person people ever said that I looked like was Jodie Foster.  When Tim Minear [Firefly] came on to retool the original pilot of The Inside [Fox, 2005] that was his inspiration.  He said, ‘Jodie Foster and The Silence of the Lambs.’  She has always been one of my absolute favourites.  I adore that comment because that was exactly what we were going for.  I loved the show and working on it.  It got the short end of the stick because with actors Peter Coyote [Sphere] and Adam Baldwin [Full Metal Jacket], and Tim Minear writing the show it could have been so much more. »

The 2014 Wizard World Convention Brought Out the Kid in All of Us

The car featured in Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen.

Navigating the rows of rare back-issues, original artwork, and collectible merchandise can be pretty tough when you’re competing with tens of thousands of people. Except when you’re at Wizard World and are among such like-minded enthusiasts of comics and pop-culture, than you feel more like a wide-eyed 10 yr. old and don’t necessarily mind running into a random Princess Leia or a Joker from The Dark Knight. Wizard World added St. Louis to its multi-city roster last year and fans swarmed the America’s Center Convention Hall. This year was no different. Well . . . I should clarify there was one big difference. But I don’t think fans complained about the event increasing in size to fill the entire Edward Jones Dome! Where else but at Wizard World can you say that former Batman Adam West, Nathan Fillion, and Eliza Dushku »
