Does Jeannette being Ted's "final mistake" on How I Met Your Mother mean that she's his last girlfriend before we meet the mother? — Brian
ADAM:
Yes, but before we get to her, Ted needs to resolve his feelings about Robin once and for all. Though executive producer Craig Thomas wouldn't pinpoint exactly when he'll accomplish that and thus, when we'll meet the mother, he insists that Robin and Barney's established wedding date — May 25, 2013 — will stick. And we all know who's performing at that wedding...

Question: While I'm not happy Last Resort was canceled, I would like to thank ABC and the producers for allowing this show to have an actual ending, with [SPOILER ALERT] Marcus showing his love for his country and sub by dying to make sure the Chinese didn't get it. Like you said in one of your daily reviews, any ending is better than a cliffhanger. I was satisfied with the ending. — Foster

The Thursday Playlist: The Last Resort, Big Gets for Katie, Kimmel, Archer's Bromance

Last Resort

Under the familiar heading of "shows gone too soon," ABC's robust, though at times berserk, military thriller Last Resort is the only failed freshman series from this season's underwhelming fall crop that I would argue deserved more of a chance — or at least a tryout in a more appropriate time period — to catch on as it figured out its sprawling narrative. With the great Andre Braugher and the appealing Scott Speedman leading a strong and (on the island at least) exotic cast, this action drama about a rogue nuclear sub standing up against a homeland gone haywire is unlike anything else on network TV. Which made it a risk, though one well worth taking, and at least ABC let the producers complete the initial 13-episode order, which now comes to a too-early, but let's hope satisfying, end (Thursday, 8/7c).

Question: I was wondering whether your affection for Last Resort had waned since the pilot. I've seen comments that the show has been uneven, but I've been absolutely hooked. I'm not trying to play the comparison game with some of Shawn Ryan's other excellent series (The Shield, Terriers) because maybe it isn't quite up to that incredible level, but I still think it's the best new show of the season read more

Last Resort Boss: Why You Have to Watch Tonight's Episode

Last Resort co-creator Shawn Ryan knows he could stand to gain more viewers. Thus far, the show has averaged just 7.8 million viewers and a 1.9 in the demo. Fortunately, he thinks Thursday's episode (8/7c, ABC) is an engaging hour, both for fans who have already sampled the show and newcomers who are curious about diving in.

Last Resort Creators Promise More Than Bombs and Submarines

Andre Braugher

ABC's Last Resort is undoubtedly one of this TV season's boldest shows. But that also makes it one of the riskiest.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on all the must-watch new shows

Co-created by The Shield's Shawn Ryan and screenwriter Karl Gajdusek, Last Resort tells the story of Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher), the captain of the nuclear submarine the USS Colorado. When Chaplin and his executive officer Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) question an order to fire warheads into Pakistan, their sub is fired upon by another American vessel, forcing them to take up residence on the French Polynesian island of Sainte Marina until they can piece together what happened and prove that they aren't traitors.

But can the show sustain its high-action, serialized premise on a female-skewing network like ABC? The creators certainly think so.... read more

New Season Review: Last Resort, Elementary Brighten Thursday TV

Daisy Betts

On a night that's hardly starved for appealing programming, two of the season's most enjoyable and intriguing pilots make their bow.

First, the underdog: ABC's Last Resort (8/7c), an electrifying military-gone-amok thriller that bridges the macho hardware of Tom Clancy with the suspense of paranoid Cold War classics from the '60s like Fail Safe and Seven Days in May. (Look them up if you've never seen them.) This series is like nothing else on network TV, which is why one's first impulse is to pray for its survival. It's also airing in what has become one of ABC's more treacherous time periods, and beyond the fact that there are very attractive people in the cast (starting with Felicity alum Scott Speedman) and the story is heavily serialized, it has nearly nothing in common tonally with the night's sudsy anchor, Grey's Anatomy.
