In naval lingo, surface craft are typically referred to as "ships". Submarines are referred to as "boats". Don't know why. The company that builds the Navy's submarines, most of them anyway, is named "Electric Boat".

So was I the only one who didn't recognize that the helicopter gunner was Tex's daughter until it was blatantly explained to us last night?

I was disheartened to see the apparent plot direction they're taking with the Brits apparently going to turn on the Americans because the loony doctor made them a highly trustworthy promise.

16 months??? It hasn't been 16 months since the base was overrun. Because of the Red Rust things have been shutting down all over. They are entirely on their own in that region,. There is no base anywhere near them. You also need fuel etc. As we saw in the last episode, they sent a plane from somewhere. But it was nowhere close.

People are starving and millions and millions of people are dying around the world.

The first time they showed her this season I said 'That's Texas' daughter!". My wife on the other hand had no idea. When they explained it in this episode she said "You were right about that being Texas' daughter." I guess she didn't believe me.

Me neither. At least Chandler's back in the fold for now. Hopefully the ship will be righted going forward...

I talked to my sister yesterday and she was bewildered as well. They should have been more blunt about it and told her in an early episode that "Your father, Tex, would be proud." or something like that.

Also, my sister told me this is her favorite show and it isn't just because of McSteamy.

I didn't pick up on that either. I thought she was a random Navy person seeing how it takes time to join the Navy, be trained, then assigned.

So aside from Fletch pulling the seafaring version of a DB Cooper and surviving with the seeds, why are all the seeds still in that stupid glass cylinder? Whatever research everyone needs the seeds for can't need all the seeds, probably only a small subset. In which case they could be divided up, or the peeps on the Nate Jimmy could have taken the ones they really needed out already.

That was ridiculous. You shoot the man carrying the most valuable item in the history of the world, an item that could save hundreds of millions of people left in the world, without it, everyone will probably die, and instead of finishing it or going after him you decide to stop and yell at the dying man on the ground to hold on. Really? Try to save this one man or the whole world?


Then the lady has him in her sights, could stop him, but instead of saving the world, she lets her feelings get in the way and let him go, even though he stole the item the world needs, betrayed you, killed numerous people on the ship, etc.


Lame.

Because it's so easy to ignore someone dying that you care for? And it's also so easy to kill someone you care for? Even in the real world people do not act logically.

I have a feeling the Brit is going to pull a fast one on the Greeks in order for Chandler and company to take them out.

He could always swim back to the Navy ship, long distances in a short time even during a violent storm are no problem for him.

The Immune Wars - a European conflict first alluded to in the second season - resulted in a huge power shift in Europe, which is why the US and UK have no real resources or equipment there - there are still holdouts from the group that was the 2nd season villain - and organized governments are pretty much non-existent outside of a few that rebuilt after the virus breakout and the Immune Wars. The number of American military personnel who survived the virus numbers in the thousands and though they should have plenty of ships and military vehicles to use, their manpower levels for the entire armed forces at the end of season 3 probably don't even add up to a single base, if you don't include the rebuilt Army/Marines/whatever they call themselves. This is why they are using any able-bodied military veterans who retired and survived, like the pilot of the Huey and the Huey itself, as the pilot wouldn't be certified to fly a Seahawk and those are probably in use at the few US Naval bases up and running. If you listen carefully in the 3rd season US scenes, you hear that the continental US is largely desolate after the virus and the few regional centers of governance and industry are mostly along the coast, with some interior cities beginning to be rebuilt and repopulated based on their location/ability to manufacture or process resources for use by the new government. As those cities come online again, you'll see more military resources being absorbed from left-over National Guard and US Army posts, as well as whatever Air Force bases are not up and running. The real issue is availability of military-grade fuel and munitions, as there would only be a finite supply of both, particularly fuel, as no refineries have been mentioned as being functional at this time.

They're using the Huey because they can get a prop one to shoot with much easier than a Seahawk. They did a little plot dancing to explain it. Also, apparently the Greeks have a larger military surface fleet than the US. Well, they did anyhow...

I think this whole seeds thing is tedious. This is not the same show as in previous seasons.

Really? I think it's exactly the same show to the point of boring repetition. It's a total rehash of the first season. Except now they're after seeds instead of the original strain. Oh yeah, the crazy Russian has been replaced by the crazy scientist.

I believe that's called botox. That or they're messing with her face in post production to hide wrinkles.

I think she is just wearing a lot of makeup, which makes her facial appearance unnaturally clean, almost like a mannequin.
She is a natural redhead and has lots of freckles. You could see this in the last episode, when one of her hands was clearly visible. Compare the skin of her hand to her face. It's like two different people.

Not sure what the ratings are, but we will already be getting a fifth season. They filmed the fourth and fifth seasons back to back. I guess whether they go longer though will depend on the ratings.
