Telemystery: Your Fall 2012 Schedule for Thursday, September 27th

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

Here is your Telemystery Fall 2012 Schedule for Thursday, September 27th, 2012 (all times are ET/PT) …

At 8 PM on ABC is the new thriller Last Resort. In the opening episode, "Captain", five hundred feet beneath the ocean's surface, the crew of the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine "USS Colorado" — the most powerful nuclear submarine ever built — receive their orders. Over a communications channel designed only to be used if the U.S. homeland has been wiped out, they're told to fire nuclear weapons at a foreign country. Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) demands confirmation of the orders, only to be unceremoniously relieved of duty. XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) finds himself suddenly in charge of the submarine and facing the same difficult decision. When he also demands confirmation of the orders, the Colorado is fired upon and hit. The submarine and its crew, honorable patriots, now find themselves crippled on the ocean floor and declared rogue enemies of their own country.

ABC made the pilot available to view in its entirety online a few weeks ago, and we did watch it, for the most part enjoying it. There are a lot of similarities to the film Crimson Tide, at least in this episode, though the last scenes take the storyline in a very different direction from how the film ended.

At 9 PM on CBS, the second season of Person of Interest premieres with the episode "The Contingency". With Finch missing — kidnapped by his hacker nemesis, Root — Reese enlists Detectives Carter and Fusco to get his friend back.

Finally, at 10 PM on CBS is the premiere of the new series Elementary. The pilot episode introduces Jonny Lee Miller as a contemporary Sherlock Holmes, who, along with his sober companion Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu), uses his uncanny ability to read people and analyze crimes to assist the NYPD on some of their more difficult cases. Tonight, Holmes consults on a home invasion that resulted in murder. Aiden Quinn stars as Holmes's NYPD connection, Captain Toby Gregson.
