Zero Hour
 
Premieres Thursday at 7 on ABC. It looks pretty crazy, in a fun way. I've give it an hour, see how it is.

Anthony Edwards (ER) plays Hank Galliston, a skeptic who publishes a magazine that debunks myths. However, his skepticism will be tested when his wife is kidnapped by an international terrorist who wants an antique clock she just picked up for her shop. Hank soon finds himself in the midst of an age old conspiracy that will challenge everything he believes and that has the potential to end the world as he knows it.

Set the DVR for this one. Like the premise, hopefully it will be pretty good.

I was thinking National Treasure after I saw the commercial. Hoping this show has a good story with some good puzzles!

Read several reviews on Thursday which made it sound like the show would be awful, but I did not find it to be bad at all. The only real criticism I can level is that I thought it stumbled toward the end of the first hour. For what it is, though, I thought they did a good job, and I'll give the second hour a watch.

Unfortunately, however, it looks like it'll go the way of Last Resort (hell, it probably won't last that long). The ratings for the pilot were terrible. Like least-watched scripted pilot in ABC history terrible.

Wow. People just don't watch Network Tv anymore unless iits reality or a singing competition.

I enjoyed it for the most part. Might as well keep watching to see where it goes.

Looks great but doubt it will make it into the 2013 fall season!

AVClub says it was a shame it wasn't more terrible. Kinds of just middles along without delivering on the crazeballs it suggests are coming.

I don't think they ever planned on it to to be honest. I think we are going to see more and more 10-13 episode single season series.

I liked the concept but didn't think the execution was very good. I decided I would wait to see if it made it or not and then pick it up on DVD later if the buzz was good.

One thing that may have hurt the ratings is that the opener has been on Hulu since the 1st of February.
