Who wants a belly rub??



I read that as more her being all "you guys don't have a miracle handy this time?" but even with your version her character still came a huge way since season 1. I'm a huge fan of how everybody changed over the years, they didn't really let anyone stay static. Maybe except Slattery but I suspect they just told Adam Baldwin to play his vision of himself and let that work itself out.

Fun Shoe

The premise of this series was great because we could have modern naval tech and tactics without being tied down to real-world politics and logistics. The only way there could be another like this is for a parody or tribute show, like The Orville is to Star Trek. Call it The Least Ship.

Yes, I thought it was both that and, she's the Nathan James captain but Chandler's an admiral.

My favorite nod was the abandon ship nod from Slattery and Chandler to Green at the end. I guess it was kind of sexist that she'd look to male authority instead of just make the call herself but I like that she got their approval as the former captains; it was a nice touch.

See, I read it as them being admirals and therefore outranking her, not because they're men or the former captains of Nathan James.

You'll hit your head and say: 'Boy, how stupid could I have been. A moron could've figured this out. I must be a real dimwit. A pathetic nimnal. A wretched idiotic excuse for a human being for not having figured these simple puzzles out in the first place...As usual, you've been a real pantload!

I'm sure some military person could correct me, but I don't think admirals take direct command of ships like that, the captain would still have say over how the ship is run, so I'm seeing her look at them as a her appealing to her mentors less than her looking up the chain of command.

The admirals would have command over the Fleet but her duty is to the ship and she wouldn't need their permission to issue an abandon ship order.

Hulk will smoke you!

Slattery looked at Chandler before telling her it's time, I don't think there was anything sexist in the scene. Just 3 people with mutual respect coming to terms with an inevitable decision.

Loved the Navy stuff this season, the ground stuff and especially D Day assualt were a bit too 80s cheese with people standing silhouetted against the sky, half the team prone with half standing, running through firefights, etc. But the finale really did the show justice and is up among my all time favorite finals.
