Zero Hour

At first, this show's buzzline sounded like it could be interesting. Like a cross between davinci code and a cop show.

This is something which normally could be up my alley.


Though the first episode was kinda boring. Kinda lackluster.

I'll watch the next week's episode, and see whether it gets any better.

Re: Zero Hour

Ditto.

Saw this last week, but I'm not certain I have the strength to sit through another episode.

Re: Zero Hour

Just caught the premiere tonight. Not bad. I like Anthony Edwards (Goose!) generally. The first five minutes got off to a quick start. Part Indiana Jones, part Hellboy. Thought for sure we were gonna "need more FBI guys" at that one point. The "twist" at the end was good.

Wendy and Marvin are blah and terribly stock. The preacher may be good.

I'll give it a few episodes.

Re: Zero Hour

In this universe I think that Jesus and God are real like the bible literally says.

Which puts a lot of stuff on the Table.

I was 20 before it really sunk in that the Ark of the Covenant was the ten Commandments... And it was a year after the magic fridge that I wondered was it really angel shit in the Ark or maybe fuel rods from a downed alien saucer which was melting all those Nazis?

Uh, none of that? The Ark was just the pretty box that CARRIED the Ten Commandments. The 'angel shit' was the dusty remains thereof. Power of God melted the Nazis.

Re: Zero Hour

When they made Raiders that was true.

The existence of stewarding aliens in the fourth movie retroactively changed the facts from Raiders.

Re: Zero Hour

Dunno about the fridge, but somebody nuked the ratings.

The premiere of Zero Hour (1.3/4) on Valentine’s Day saw the full-time return of Anthony Edwards to primetime more than a decade after he left ER. Unfortunately for ABC, on a night that traditionally sees lower viewership, the conspiracy drama marked the lowest-rated in-season debut for a scripted show ever on the network. Facing off against American Idol in the 8 PM time slot, Zero Hour was down 41% from the September 27 premiere of Last Resort, a show that is now cancelled, and 38% from the March 15 premiere of Missing.
I'll probably get a bit DVR boost but it's most likely sunk anyway.

Re: Zero Hour

It was...okay.

That's all I can muster. Is it odd that I wish the clocks were older than 1938 and that the mythology didn't involve Christianity at all?

Of course the ratings stank...it was Valentine's Day! A lot of people were out for dinner.

Re: Zero Hour

This time slot sucks. The only successful show in this slot for ABC in recent years was Ugly Betty. That ended 3 years ago.

Were we watching the same show?

That was probably the True Cross hiding under the church, and everything else in the script was about the Christian apocalypse. Hitler wanted the powers of the Antichrist and then to change the narrative so that the end of days lasts a thousand years not just 7 like Revelations says.

The Pope had given the new apostles superpowers!

In the real world if the Pope, not that we have one right now, if the Pope selected 12 new Apostles they wouldn't magically get suer powers and in truth they'd still have trouble placing in a cosplay competition at comicon.

Last week on Supernatural, some Rabi got together in the early 1940s and made a Golem who tore down a Nazi Concentration Camp effortlessly... Why just one Golem? 6 million souls could have been saved if a thousand Golems marched on Berlin in 1940 and sacked the shit out of that city.

Did the NAZI's have supernatural antigoelm defences?

I know this seems drastic but if every Rabi could magically create a never ending supply of indestructible Golem Super Solders, in the fictional universe of Supernatural, the NAZIs didn't overreact to the Jewish Question and were right to be afraid if it was impossible for them to make friends with these people,that there was a Secret War going on that the Third Reich was th only thing standing inbetween ordinary people and the Golem horde.

After Germany was turned into a smoking pile of rubble, what would the Jews have done next, go back to their lives before the war or march on Russia and then America? I've played enough Risk with assholes drunk on power who believe all they can roll is double sixes, that' this is not a Jewish problem, it's a human being problem.

Point being is that in the Supernatural Universe, and the Zero Hour Universe, and the Indiana Jones Universe, where God is not a made up fairy story, God allowed the NAZIs and God allowed World War II because she saw value to it.

Re: Zero Hour

The show looked bad, the previews annoyed me, it was a horrible timeslot for a bad show.

Not shocking the ratings sucked.

Re: Zero Hour

I didn't think it was all that bad, really. The bit at the end caught me by surprise, and I'm hooked enough to want to see next week's ep.

Of course, if the ratings were that bad, then I guess it'll probably be cancelled in three more weeks.

Re: Zero Hour

Damn, that was quick. I've got episode 3 on my DVR but I think that I'll just delete it unwatched. I doubt that ABC will ever air the remaining 10 episodes so no use in watching it.
