Did You Know?


The title, Lazaretto, is used as a symbol for the building used to house the group of men who were drugged. A Lazaretto, also called a lazaret, or lazzaretto in Italian, is a building or ship, usually located on islands, that were used in the past as quarantines for people with contagious diseases traveling the seas. Lazarettos were used in the 1500s and 1600s to quarantine plague and cholera victims, and some were used as hospitals up until the early 1900s. The very first Lazaret was located in Venice, Italy in 1423. From such period in Venice comes the now universally adopted "Yellow Flag" code, when a yellow flag is hoist on a ship, the message is clear: stay away due to quarantine. See more »

Masculinity lost
12 November 2017 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

The 'mind control' theme gets developed in this episode, with the team infiltrating a compound where there are ongoing experiments on making strong, big and violent men into little and lazy lambs. It is all so over-the-top (in an already over-the-top series) that it is difficult to watch it with a straight face. The acting, actually, sometimes improves, with all the bland and blank faces around. It is all incredible hilarious and a pity it is not played with more tongue-in-cheek.

On the 'big bad guys' of the story side of the episode we get more ridiculous conversations, Fletcher deciding he made the most obvious mistake ever (huh) and more twists. If the 'island of calm men' is not good enough, Vellek and Co. will probably fill your share of stupidity. Giving so much power to an underwritten and risible character as Dr. Vellek (who gets another over-the-top character development) is making silly "The Last Ship" into pantomime "The Last Ship". The show should actually embrace this craziness and make what used to be a post-apocalyptic show into a Mel Brooks one. It is already becoming a parody of itself.
