Trivia

The Global Seed Vault is a seed bank located on the Arctic Island of Svalbard, Norway, which is located about 800 miles from the north pole. It consists of a giant vault that contains seeds from every known extant species of plant on Earth, it first opened on February 26, 2008. The main purpose of the vault is to store seeds for scientific research and also to help repopulate a plant species that may go extinct in the wild due to human activity or some type of natural disaster. While there are other seed banks in the world this one is the largest by far and was built in an extremely isolated area to reduce the likely hood of it being destroyed during wars or other disasters, such as the seed banks in Iraq and Afghanistan, which were both destroyed during the Gulf Wars. The seed bank in the Philippians was recently destroyed by flooding as well, so it was decided that a vault needed to be created in an isolated location where there would be little to no chance of a wildfire or flooding destroying it, and as mentioned since it is on a remote island in the arctic there is little chance of it being destroyed in the cross-fire of some future war.

Goofs

Towards the end we have a scene with 2 members of Ships Company standing on the forecastle of the Nathan James, watching a C-130 Hercules take off for Germany. Nathan James was still alongside the wharf in Rota, Spain at that moment. The ships International Callsign in this scene was flying from the Port Inner signal halyard. This is not in line with Flag Protocol as International Callsigns are only flown when underway - and even then it would likely only be for entering/departing harbor. See more »

One of the silliest, most head-scratching, unintentionally funny (and sometimes insulting), but also quite entertaining series is back. Yes, "The Last Ship" strikes again, with some of the most un-Spanish people ever, strange accents and nonsensical plot developments abound.

There is a new threat (this time a virus that attacks food instead of humans) and the Nathan James and its crew are in the middle of it (because, they were just bored). Staying in the Spanish base of Rota, the crew of the Nathan James is trying to find some seeds that will save humanity, but things will turn sour pretty fast.

Tom Chandler, though, is nowhere to be found, enjoying a retirement with yet another younger woman, Sasha Cooper probably too old for him (anyway...). There are some shady characters in the Greece he is living in, and you can see from a mile away what is going to happen.

Ironically enough, as always with this series, even if the accents are 'strange' and some people seem to have wandered in from the wrong set (that Spanish boy and the Spanish guard suspects number one and two), it all is entertaining enough. The new threat keeps things interesting (something the show needed, the story-line of the old virus just couldn't be stretched longer) and we already know things are going to keep blowing up.

Now, will the action and the characters' interactions help us forget all the gross problems of the series with geography? We will see what this season has on offer... For now, good enough.
