    Zero Hour

    Has anyone viewed the pilot episode of Zero Hour. Premiere date isn't until Feb 14, but ABC does have it available online.

    I just watched and I think it shows promise. It seems to have somewhat of a Lost/Fringe type aura with its own mythology. I'm planning to view more episodes and wonder if anyone has any thoughts about it.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm going to watch it on my Ipad ABC app tomorrow.

    It looked interesting to me.

    I have the DVR set to record it. It looks interesting.

    I watched it, and thought it was pretty darn good. I like these kind of shows, and it kept my interest all the way through.

    It will definitely be on my watch list.

    I want to add a new show to my lineup but didn't really want to get involved with serial killers like the two new offerings that seems to be doing well currently so this seemed interesting. Unfortunately all the shows I like to watch seem to be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and there are simply too many shows all at the same time.

    I've set this up to dvr. Looks interesting, in the way that the National Treasure movies were (despite Nicolas Cage being in them).

    Enjoyed Anthony Edwards when he was on ER.

    I like this one too. It also reminds me of a show that was on in 2010 called Rubicon.

    In my opinion, Anthony Edwards has been gone from a TV series too long. I love his geeky, good looks.

    Re: Zero Hour

    So, what did everybody think?

    First episode didn't reach out and grab me. I struggled through the first 6 1/2 minutes (yeah, I timed it) because it was so dark. Not dark like sinister, but dark like I couldn't see. Same thing again when they entered the Nazi sub.

    It's on the dvr schedule and since I can record two shows at once, it doesn't really interfere with anything because we always watch Big Bang Theory as it airs. Not sure how long I'll keep recording if the next episodes are like the first.

    It definitely was dark, but I still enjoyed it. I think I need to watch it again, though.

    It was a little too much like a National Treasure knock-off for me, but I'm going to give it a chance because I like the cast.
