The Last Ship

The latest episode features a scene where the ship and a submarine are both at "all stop,"  both being silent and each waiting for the other to make the first move. The Captain is sitting in his chair on the bridge staring off into space, and when someone starts to speak he holds up one hand and says to no one, "Wait."  The submarine skipper is doing much the same. It was extremely well done; enough to take me back more than half a century to when I was part of that game.

It's not actually clear who makes the first move, and when it comes it turns out that neither can shoot because the ship is directly on top of the submarine, so both of them are running like hell, each trying to achive a firing position on the other. Only very slightly less well done than the waiting game, it was awesome.
