Audience Reviews for The Last Ship: Season 4

  • Jan 27, 2018
    Season 4 of The Last Ship reboots the series and gives the crew of the Nathan James a fresh start with a new mission. A new strain of the virus that wiped out most of humanity has now infected the world's crops and the Nathan James has been tasked with finding a vial of uncontaminated seeds that can be used to engineer a cure; meanwhile Tom Chandler falls in with a gangster who's recruiting mercenaries. Peter Weller and Jackson Rathbone join the supporting cast and make for especially compelling villains. However, the writing is rather uneven and has a difficult time re-introducing the characters and setting up the Red Rust plague; as it takes a couple of episodes to understand what's going on and who all the players are. Also, some of the special effects look kind of cheap. But it's forgivable given how ambitious the naval battles are this season (far surpassing what they've done in the past). While Season 4 is a little rough going at the start, overall The Last Ship continues to be an incredibly action-packed and exciting series.

    I really like season 4. People didn't appreciate the writing, I don't mind this storyline at all. The ending is a nice wrap-up as well and serves as a decent series finale!

    An edge-of-your-seat techno drama action thriller with fresh plots and twists. Cast and production are exceptional. Clancy and Creighton rolled into one absolutely amazing must-binge TV series. #TheLastShip #DDG151 #USSNathanJames

    Weakest season so far, but I'm going to give the fifth (final?) season a chance.

    *** Spoiler *** My wife and I enjoyed seasons 1-3. We were looking forward to season 4. What happened? They must have changed writers and the director! The script was awful. The Nathan James strolls into a "fishing net" because they said it's only a fishing net and the net contained an IED which disabled the entire ship! Really, the entire ship including the backups? Really? They send a crew to take out the rocket launcher. The crew finds the rocket launcher. One crewman takes a bullet trying to take it out and crawls towards the launcher in pain. Then three crew members group together in front of the launcher under fire and sit there while the launcher is targeting the Nathan James. They do nothing to stop it. The call in a 6" shell from the James on their position and jump off the cliff and the 6" shell impacts the launcher! Really? Those three crew member are then seen aboard the James and the crew member who took the bullet was fine and no mention of him taking a bullet! Meanwhile our hero captain is off in Greece. The friend that took him in was killed by this group of thugs. He then agrees to go with them as if nothing happened. He is then put in a tough-man fight with this bull-Greek guy and shows him who's boss. He then makes out with the thug boss's sister. Pretty pathetic! My wife and I might be done with this series! What a shame.
