The Last Ship! A classic gets remade...


Not a valid youtube URL

Took them a year to get us a second trailer. You'd think, with all that time, they'd manage something better than Asylum-level trope-gasms. Jesus...


The first *good* promo for Battlestar Galactica Dawn of the Dead World War Z The Last Ship:

Let's hope they're going the Quiet Earth route here:

I was making a '58 Last Man on Earth reference.

But no, I haven't seen Quiet Earth.

I know you were. Which is why I assumed you hadn't seen Quiet Earth, because this trailer is Quiet Earth.

RC...did you post the "Boom" trailer for The last Ship in the other thread? Now I can't find where that was...but the subconscious hilarity of this trailer sort of sums up Bay's entire career (the "Boom" is at the very end):

It's in the "Not worth a Thread" thread.

Game 6 tonight so I'm sure I'll see this 500 times.

I'm going to start ending every sentence with "boom."

Wait, I do that already actually, don't I?

Okay, okay, fine... The books were terrible but, you know, so are TWD comics! So there is hope...and I like what they've done with this trailer.

They'd better watch themselves, though. The best part of the books is the long, slow build-up to the apocalypse...and it's fun. Some of the clips from the teaser are mighty late in the story, plot-line wise.

The great story-killer will be when we morph into Queen of the Damned land with the very tedious council of ancients. But if they string out season one with book one, they'll be fine. Mainly because we'll have a few Nazi vampire episodes.

Um...so... Dominion is really, really good.

I expected the worst of the worst though, because it's based on that stupid movie Legion. But, wow. The 90 minute almost commercial free pilot was awesome.

Everyone else hates it, though, and it has been royally panned. So maybe my super crippling obsession with Rosalind Halstead is getting in the way of all rational thought?

Oh... Thread is now about Rosalind Halstead:

The Last Ship!

So...they gave Michael Bay his normal operating budget, and the use of the entire US Navy, and he created a hybrid of a scene-by-scene remake of 70s BSG and the source novel and...it's awesome.

Episode two was okay. I'd kind of like them to explain the angels a bit better, and maybe talk more about God going missing, and maybe explain why all the higher orders of angels are hanging back, and where they are...

I don't know. The series is hopelessly doomed, but it's better than Falling Skies!
