It’s time to get aboard The Last Ship for another rocking season. Season 3 of this very well done TNT show starts tonight. It was supposed to start last week, but things happened so it was pushed up a week. It’s all good though.
For those of you who aren’t aware, The Last Ship is an action thriller set in the months immediately after a global pandemic has killed roughly 80% of the world’s population. The source of the virus is melting ice caps and pre-historic animal carcasses that have begun to thaw out. The virus isn’t all killing, and there is a cure for it, but the real meat of the show is how the crew deals with the knowledge that they are the last surviving members of the United States of America as they know it. There’s plenty of threats be it rebels, commies, or religious zealots. That’s an oversimplification of the first two seasons, the third one starts tonight, I hope you’re watching with us.
