This is probably the best TV series I’ve ever seen for years! Everyone I know that have seen feels basically the same. So, it would seem extremely unrealistic for the producers to even remotely consider cancelling the series.

Am addicted to this show. Completely burned out on autopsies, homicides and forensic labs solving endless murders. Keep the Ship going. And don’t write out Tex. The character is a great counterbalance to the grim realities facing the ship’s crew. TERRIFRIC CAST!!!

It’s a good show and it’s getting better. My wife and I watch it. The characters are alternately funny, heroic and human. There’s alot more story to tell. We want to see it.

It is refreshing to have a non-standard show that intelligently explains the environment inwhich the series takes place.

Without high-tech distractions, massive CG special effects and other entrapments, it relies on an ample supply of cast members, story lines and character development to move the plot forward.

Where is does not have state-of-the-art staging (a ship that has seen a lot of history), it creatively explores the use of common sense, basic and general science, ingenuity, clever problem solving and creative repurposing of “on-hand” materials, technologies and processes. In a seemingly impossible and inescapable delemna, these ministrations contribute to a “MacGyver-esque” solution that addresses that part of the human spirit which strives to triumph in the most untenable of situations.

The “science and biology” that gave rise to the series are secondary to the storyline. The emotional investment in the characters, their struggles and triumphs infects anticipation for the next episode.

When thinking of “The Last Ship” and its fresh take on “save the world” dramas, the first word that comes to mind is “Clever.”

I think this show is great!!!! I really like Tex. I hope he does not die next season. The others are bringing something to the show. I hope everone gets back together, takes their ship back and goes to help others. Eric Dane & David Baldwin really are great. I’ve always like David Baldwin. If they beat the Russians then they can beat the dicators in Baltimore. Keep The Last Ship alive.

The Last Ship is one of the best shows ever. The acting is fantastic and very true to life. The CO does a superb portrayal of a commander, as does his second-in-command. All of the cast should be very proud of what they’ve done. Give me many more shows and let THE SHIP run as long a MASH did!!!!!

I love the show and hope like some of the other shows on the network have a winter season of shows too.

I really like Last Ship. I would watch it over and over. I didn’t realize that it had ended and tried to find it on TV. I was so disappointed when it wasn’t showing anymore. Yes I want it back.

This is a great show with compelling acting..

Every episode is a nail biter… Eric Dane does an awesome job playing the captain of a navy destroyer and the military aspect seems very true.

I Loved!!!!! this series. I missed the last night and was hoping to catch it on vod, but it has not made it there yet, and it’s killing me. I keep checking to see if they have post it for view yet but I’m met with disappointment every time. My imagination has already begun to go wild with where the writers may go next. I have an over active imagination as it is, and the waiting in between shows only makes it worse. But I love it. Too bad, I don’t own a top of the line PC with good security and dragon, maybe I’d be giving you competition. Or just writing for you. Dkaye

Why does good TV programming always exist under the threat of “cancellation” ? I definitely want MORE of THE LAST SHIP. It is very well developed, has likable characters, and believable heroes. The storyline is solid, and the threads are well imbedded.
