There are three episodes of Last Resort remaining as it inches closer to cancellation, and things are getting absolutely crazy. We've been anticipating it since ABC put the kibosh on the show, but even with few people interested and really no reason do anything differently until the final episode, Shawn Ryan is proving that he can still make some great television.
The last original episode nearly a month ago may have been the series' best in its short run. "Damn the Torpedoes" vehemently outshined it by giving us a near non-stop pace, endless sub-plots that covered just about everything in the show (save for Jessy Schram, who went MIA after she was abducted and presumed dead by Sam last week), and the best of what made the few of us that watched the show fall in love with it (the tense sub scene).

Back in Washington, the coup is going down, and the organizers have called upon the Speaker of the House (Ernie Hudson) to inform him of the plan, show him the proof, and tell him that since the president and VP will have to step down, he'll be the new head of state. It's crazy, and there are people against it, but it's going down. Even the secret service is on board with the condition that the military treat the POTUS with any remaining dignity they might be able to offer.

Do you watch Fringe? The fifth and final season is ending next week. I only started watching this last season but I think another channel is going to offer all the seasons all over again. Some pretty wild stuff is in them from what a friend told us.
It does seem that they are going to have an ‘ending’ for the series.
I have a long list of series that ended with unresolved cliff-hangers. Those hurt future series, because viewers don’t want to invest time in them, only to be left hanging after the cancellation.
The plot is walking a tightrope. If it is too liberal, it could have a bad impact on real politics — if you don’t like what’s going on, just disobey orders and have a coup.
[Many of us, however, manage to keep TV and movies and video games and novels, etc., separated from reality.]
I liked the show but it really didn't hit for me. I think that it never quite gave the feeling that a nuclear war (at least a one sided one) had started and what the effects of that were.
