Don't watch

A lot swearing: Oh my God, Jesus, Son of Bitch, asshole, God Damn, shit, don't understand common sense medias scanning of content. In there rating states only lite language, really! You shouldn't be called common sense media because this isn't common sense. I find this with a lot of you reviews does anyone really actually watch these shows if they did they would see all the profanity that is present. At least you don't call yourself a Christian media web site!

Too much swearing

"The Last Ship" Set's Sail in Tension and Excitment

"The Last Ship" is the kind of show that can "excite" as well as entertain and with the current Corona virus Pandemic going around, this show adds a bit of irony and keep our minds off of the reality of an authentic virus rearing it's ugly head in society these days. The actions is intense at times and graphic (blood letting from cuts and infections) and there is a fair amount of swearing in the show, but strong writing and story telling make up for it in this fictional account based on the best selling book. I wouldn't recommend it for the younger set; it's mature show for mature family viewing.

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
