Last Resort canceled quickly or big hit?ABC’s new action TV series, Last Resort, has impressive production values and talent. As we know however, those aren’t a guarantee of ratings success. Will Last Resort be cancelled quickly, a moderate success or a big hit instead?

    The premiere of Last Resort was on the best I’ve seen this season. Not only is it shot in Hawaii (I used to live on Oahu), but Campbell is an amazing director. They should probably move it into a time slot with a little less competition, but with its political intrigue and character drama it might be able to hold its own against The Big Bang Theory.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this, an unexpected pleasure. It’s also nice to see a military show on network television. Looking forward to seeing where the show takes us, it’s going to be interesting!

    Saw first show. Loved it! Strong characters. I will continue watching it live and have kicked the other competing time slot shows to the curb. Interested to see how characters grow. It will be difficult to keep up the action pace…but that’s what I like. Hope others tune into the show.

    EXCELLENT!!! Can’t wait for next week and for ABC to put the full episode up for online viewing. Best show to come down the pike in a very long time!

    Watching it now. A little confusing right now. Lots of characters to figure out. It may be “LOST” underwater?
