The Last Ship: Season 4 DVD cover


  The Last Ship: Season 4

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 6/1/18

I've never seen this series before, oddly enough. It's nice to get the 4th season DVD, but I'm going to have to go back and watch the previous seasons to catch up.

The show has a lot of actors that I liked on other shows, like star Eric Dane (From "Grey's Anatomy"), Adam Baldwin (From "Firefly"), Rhona Mitra (from "Boston Legal"), John Pyper-Ferguson (From "Alphas" and so many other shows), and Tracy Middendorf (From "Days of Our Lives").

This seems to be the type of show, like "Walking Dead," where they kill off a lot of characters every season. I have to admit, that's not my favorite type of show. I don't like when they kill off the characters. I'm also not too crazy about most post-apocalyptic TV series or movies, although at least this one is not as gross as, say, "The Strain."

The show has a lot of action, which any fan of action or scifi should enjoy. It has a lot of handsome actors, and those who like military shows will also enjoy it.

The 5th season, which is its last, airs starting September 9th.

Meanwhile, Captain Slattery (Baldwin) and the crew of Nathan James have discovered that the virus has “jumped kingdoms” and now infects the world’s food crops, bringing humanity to the brink of global famine. As the ship traverses the Mediterranean in search of a solution that can save the world’s food supply, Chandler encounters his own enemies in Greece. His “hero’s journey” becomes a modern day retelling of Homer’s
