Sad news today, EW announced that ABC has decided not to order additional episodes of Last Resort; the show will end when it completes the original thirteen episode order. The network still has the option to revive the show for the 2013 to 2014 season should their mid-season replacements and their development season both under perform (a very long shot). I am sorry to see the show end but hope it manages to wrap up some story threads in its remaining episodes.
These decisions are never immutable and as a fan of the show the best thing you can do is watch the remaining episodes live while encouraging others to do the same. If there is an uptick in the viewers then the network may reconsider their decision. It is heartening to note that Nashvil…Read more >
Wikia is rolling out a fun new initiative for the holiday season called “Time to Play” where we ask our wikis what page they’re most proud of. We want to know which page you would want to have represent .
There will be an official blog going out on Nov. 1 but we wanted to reach out to you early and see if you were interested in participating now.
If you wanted to participate, a “Time to Play” badge would go up on the right rail of the mainpage that links users to the page that you choose, while the footer will live on that same page that links to hub pages eg. http://www.wikia.com/Entertainment for Time to Play goodies. You can see how the badge looks by clicking here and how the footer will appear by clicking here.
We will feature on http:/…Read more >

The series premiere aired last night, did you tune in?
I thought it was well acted, well produced, and I found it especially appealing that they decided to take some risk with subject matter. This is one of the only shows intentionally dealing with actual geopolitical hot-spots, and I think it adds an interesting "this could really happen" variable. For most of the episode there was more of a feature film feel - especially considering the acting talent involved. Only time will tell if the hook tastes as good as the bait, or if quality will diminish from here on out, but I think we're off to a good start!
What did you think? Comment below with your own take on the series premiere...

Last Resort fans, only two more weeks until the premiere!! Yahoo! TV is airing the pilot episode before the premiere, but, for those of you who are planning on saving your Last Resort eyes for the TV premiere, what do you think is going to happen??
- Hopefully we'll find out more about this mysterious order to fire on Pakistan (and learn that it was fake).
- Even though Marcus Chaplin is relieved of his duties, he'll probably still take charge even though Sam Kendal is technically the new commanding officer.
- From the trailer, it seems like the U.S. is going to use USS Colorado's refusal for their own benefit, so we will be seeing a lot of what goes on in the White House as people scramble to figure things out!
- Seems like there will be conflict betw…

I started a list to determine the top new network drama by popular vote over at the entertainment wiki:
Top new network dramas in fall 2012
Last Resort is leading the voting at the time of writing with my single solitary vote but any of you discerning viewers who have an opinion are more than welcome to join in and vote. I have illustrated the list with up to date poster art for all of the series I included so I think it makes for an interesting scroll through too.Read more >
I have listed Last Resort Wiki as one of the featured new wikis on the entertainment wiki, I hope it brings us some new readers and editors.Read more >
Can't wait to see how this one turns out, I think it's an interesting premise, and Andre Braugher is an amazing actor. Hopefully he, as well as the rest of the cast, are given a well-written script and some thoughtful direction. I'm always interested in a story where members of the military question their orders when it comes to something with these kind of implications rather than just blindly following. Here's hoping!Read more >
