What do you think? Is the fifth season the right time to end The Last Ship TV series? If it were up to you, would The Last Ship be cancelled or renewed for season six on TNT?
So Tavo has an Iowa class battleship? There were only four made by the United States during WWII and they are all preserved in the USA as museum ships. Really poor writing also, the top fugitive in the USA gives herself up at the headquarters where the President and Chiefs of staff are and they casually take her through the war room without even searching her. Then they let a group of terrorists in the building without even searching them because they are dressed as paramedics. I don’t know if I can make it much farther into the series this… Read more »

Because of the late start due to Eric Dane’s illness I think the show is a little lost in viewership this year, and for the latter half of S4 its up against NFL Sunday Night Football.

The Last Ship is holding my interest. I almost missed its Season Premier for the fourth season and was very happy that I stumbled across the schedule on the day of presentation. I hadn’t seen much in the way of a trailer. The cast regulars are welcomed familiar faces. As fantastic , or should I say, maybe implausible that the concept of one ship mustering so much in supplies and personnel and rejuvenating repairs is, I really enjoy the concept. I hope Season Four will match the prior years’ audience. Time will tell.
