    I loved this show – maybe because I’m retired military – but I thought it was a very interesting storyline. OK, bad ratings, maybe you have to let it go, but you still owe the 5 or 6 million still watching a satisfying resolution to the storyline. If we don’t get it, don’t be surprised when no one wants to watch your new shows for fear of being left hanging. We’ll be watching TBS and TNT so we know the shows will last for a full run.

    Really liked Last Resort and am sad that it will not be returning. Don’t know why I start to watch any shows that are new. I only get to watch 1 or 2 season and then it’s cancelled. Becoming annoyed with this more then familiar situation.
