Isn't it weird how scientists can imagine all the matter of the universe exploding out of a dot smaller than the head of a pin, but they can't come up with a more evocative name for it than The Big Bang?


Sorry, this is going to be a bad OP for a good show.

Also this just happened: https://news.usni.org/2017/08/20/us...ations-underway

Tom Chandler would never have let this happen. But Tex was killed last season and that loving sucks.

The final season of The Last Ship starts tonight at 9pm!

Dissapointed no ladies with beards. Would've been great to see them just play it straight, all beard cast, even the kids. Only villains don't have beards. Good Guys Grow Beards (GGGB).

I love these little details. They put a ton of detail into poo poo most shows wouldn't give a second thought, like the leader kid from the 2nd season who also ended up joining the crew.

And if that ending was 'merica as gently caress I don't know what is.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?


I've never seen this show outside the first like 15 miuntes. How do they get food. Do they fish. Can destroyers fish. How do they get their fiber.

They stop at bases and resupply just often enough for the whole premise not to completely fall apart.

This show is a very weird mix of logistic realism and totally batshit Michael Bay military worship. I'm pretty sure they have a whole episode where getting a resupply from an abandoned Caribbean base leads to a 15 minute shoot out with terrorists that ends in a danger close artillery strike on a building from which several main characters emerge unscathed.

I've never seen ship captains slap on tac gear like a fat guy returning to a buffet either. For that matter, you know it's bad when there are E-1 through E-4's running the bridge while the whole senior cadre is on land battling the enemy in hand to hand combat.

Yeah, I had come to accept that Chandler was just Captain Kirk going on every away mission, but now we have Captain Jayne and he's doing the same drat thing.

Speaking of things that happened in season 1, I wonder if the fact that crazy Russian captain detonated a nuke in France will come up since they're back in Europe.
