  • Disappointing.

    While I have no problem with the actors, the writing is atrocious. The entire senior command goes off on a dangerous mission and leaves an engineer in charge???

    Plus, every naval vessel of consequence has an incinerator - used to dispose of debris without having to dispose of it overboard and leave a trail for the enemy to follow. But how do they dispose of dead lab animals - right - throw 'em overboard. The writers can't come up with a more believable plot device???

    Basically, I like the show - but if they can't snuggle up a little closer to a more realistic/believable functioning of a Navy ship, I'll be watching something else.moreless
  • Pretty darn good.

    I am liking this show, more and think it is pretty darn good and I am very glad it got renewed for another season.
  • First 3 were good.

    And then it just kept getting worse.
  • OK then...

    The Skipper, XO and the CMC go on a hostile mission? Don't they have any security forces on the ship at all? Seriously, the top three people on the ship go on an armed mission? I know we are supposed to just go with it, but come on. A bit of a spoiler here. I LOVED the look on the XO's face when the mayor did what he did. That part was cool, I have to admit that.moreless
  • Episode 5 -- off the rails!

    Until now, it was a fun start. There was an interesting predicament, an arch villain, betrayals, flawed heroes, action, and adventure. It was weak on the science, but it's TV. Standard fare, however, fun to watch.

    Suddenly, with Episode 5, a fun story has been replaced by militaristic propaganda! According to this episode, It's *good* to overthrow local governments (if they're dictators) by force, and -- get this! -- righteous democracy spontaneously springs up to replace any fallen dictator! The episode also expresses preference for a democratic murderer over a dictatorial rapist.

    Did Cheney and Rumsfeld get writing credit?moreless
