The Last Ship Synopsis was taken from Presearch:
The Last Ship is a really enjoyable fast paced Apocalyptic series full of action and has a great all star cast with numerous plot lines and twists that will keep you glued to the screen.
The storyline is well thought out and is executed in a very convincing manner, which has a realistic feel worthy of a Blockbuster movie, which is quite understandable given that the series was directed by esteemed Director Michael Bay of Transformers fame and the story was adopted for screen based off the novel of the same name The Last Ship written and released by William Brinkley in 1988.
The narration and dialogue is excellent and has the hallmarks of a big budget film as you would expect with any Michael Bay production.
I believe this series will appeal to many people that like the multiple genres that are encapsulated very well into this story from Apocalyptic, crime drama, War, survival, espionage, thriller etc and is a great series to dig your teeth into if you haven't already had the pleasure.
