Last Resort doesn't air on TV until September 28th, but Yahoo has put the pilot online early, presumably to build hype and anticipation.
I watched it earlier today, and thought that it was outstanding. I liked it much more than Revolution (Which you can find on Hulu), I thought the cast was better, the premise more engaging, and the possibilities at the end of the episode were much more enticing. They crammed a lot of story into the first 44 minutes of the series, but I think they pulled it off well. It is from the creator of The Shield, one of the best shows of the last ten years. (Family Meeting, anyone?)
I get a Lost/Battlestar Galactica vibe from the show, and if you're going to go with two shows to borrow inspiration, it's hard to find two better. Some shows have an outlandish premise but no likeable characters and leads with no charisma (The Event, Revolution) But I think Andre Braugher is a great leading man. Speedman wasn't bad either, and who can say no to Robert Patrick?
I am reposting this topic with a more fleshed out initial post so that it isn't shut down again for spam.
