Watch: The First Episode of ABC's Nuclear Submarine Drama 'Last Resort' Online Now

The fall pilot online previews continue with "Last Resort," ABC's new naval drama about the crew of the USS Colorado, a nuclear submarine that goes rogue after Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) and his second-in-command XO Lt. Commander Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) question orders they receive to launch missiles at Pakistan. Instead, the ship heads to an uninhabited island after being fired upon, declaring themselves a sovereign nation with nuclear capability while looking for ways to clear their name.

"Last Resort" is from Shawn Ryan (creator of "The Shield" and showrunner of "Terrier"), so it certainly has promise -- and Braugher's proven himself a major television star again and again on "Homicide: Life on the Street," "Thief" and "Men of a Certain Age." You can watch the full pilot episode below, courtesy of Yahoo -- the broadcast premiere is on ABC on Thursday, September 27th at 8pm.

    There is nothing at all intelligent about this plot. It is 100% insulting to all American military personnel. Orders to employ nuclear weapons are issued only under the gravest of national emergencies and for a submarine to refuse to carry out that kind of order it would amount to the worst form of treason imaginable.

    But, to then have that submarine launch a threatening nuclear attack against the United States (as this plot asserts) takes it a further insulting step. Shame on ABC! Might as well have a series where US military personnel go back in time and man the Nazi concentration camps!

    You obviously weren't paying attention. They had only questioned the orders, with reason. After asking for confirmation, they were fired upon.

    Btw, I think you would have a difficult time turning a key that would end the lives of 4.3 million lives--for the sake of U.S. politics. I love my country, but I hate how it is.
