Apparently the key to keep going in today's television world is not to go the brainteaser route, but to torture and kill almost everyone in your storyline.

That's where Zero Hour got it wrong, they tortured the audience.

We didn't finish the first episode because we like Anthony Edwards and the lines he was trying to deliver were awful. Sometimes bad writing makes for a bad show and it is painful to see a good actor struggle with them, never mind the issue of how good is the supporting cast.

Given the story arc of the show, I just didn't see how I could pick it up at episode 5 if the writers got their act together.

Just a reminder to check your To Do List for Zero Hour.  Mine is showing that it will record on June 15th.

I almost deleted the first 3 today. Is this going to be worth the effort? I have not watched them yet.

I will add it to the calendar anyhow

Ooops, I did delete the first three a couple weeks ago. Forgot it was coming back. I'll watch this thread to see if it's worth picking them up on iTunes or Amazon.

As I understand it, the series was made to be able to be wrapped up after one season. So, with these episodes there should be a resolution.
