LAST RESORT: Hollywood Blows It

ABC’s new series Last Resort is promoted as a high-drama military series, coming from Shawn Ryan, executive producer of The Shield and The Unit. However, after watching the pilot, it seems as if those who made it took the worst aspects of Seven Days in May, Crimson Tide, and Platoon, and mixed them all together – creating a film that fits just about every stereotype of the military that so-called progressives have put forth.
