ABC’s Last Resort has been deemed the Fall’s most promising new show (we gave the pilot an A), and you can see what all the chatter is about right now. The pilot has been made available online courtesy of Yahoo, a full two weeks before its Sep. 27 premiere.
Created by Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and featuring a cast that includes TV favorites like Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age), Robert Patrick (The X-Files), Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse) and Scott Speedman (Felicity), Last Resort is about a U.S. submarine crew who defy orders to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan. When the government declares that they’ve gone rogue, they are forced to claim a small island as their own.
Watch the full pilot below and let us know if you think it lives up to the hype in the comments.
