I don’t follow this stuff, but I believe the number one television show in America is called “The Last Ship”. I’ve been watching it. It has some intrigue and is fairly entertaining. It has a Navy ship, although only one – thus the name “The Last Ship”, guns, missiles and Ruskies. What else do you need?
It also has disease. Yes, the program is centered around a worldwide pandemic – a virus that has wiped out most of the world’s population.
This U.S. ship travels the seven seas, or will eventually I assume, searching for a cure, a vaccine for the virus, which is so deadly that if contracted, has a 100% mortality rate.
Now, is it life that imitates art or art that imitates life? I think it’s the latter and in our current, real life condition, it most certainly is. What a coincidence that this show is airing at the very same time the world is locked in a battle to contain the deadly African Ebola virus.
