That pretty much sums it up for me. Another show hits the dumpster.
My federal LEO son carries hls weapon (loaded) when he travels on official business - in and out of country. He checks in with TSA, signs a form and heads for his gate. Upon boarding, he identifies himself to the flight crew and reports his seating assignment.
There is more to it, of course, but suffice it to say that there are rules, regs and procedures that govern the process.
I was on the fence, leaning towards embargoing it from viewing until I could see if it survived. Too late.
3rd ep seemed better somehow; the bad guy became more interesting, and I liked how they hilighted the kidnapped wife's ingenuity. They also added Grace Gummer who is a dead ringer for her sister Mamie to the cast (both have the Meryl Streep DNA and are significantly better looking than her), so I mark that in the plus column as Gummer is pretty talented, but I did not see exactly why they needed to do that.
No matter, it's dust. If this were a book I might like to read it; the story itself is pretty compelling, just not well mounted as a TV show, or at least not by this bunch.
I wont miss it.
Just watched the third episode last night and now I do hope the run the rest of the episodes this summer. The story did improve and they did toss out a couple teasers. What is the parents involvement? They made a point to show how religious they were and then what is it about their past they wont tell their son? Then there was the comment that the FBI agents husband might have been the target of the bombing and not collateral damage
Agree! Still don't like the agent, but the plot was much better and I am interested in the outcome.
Another one I'm glad I hadn't started watching... deleted.
Well, I caught up with the first three episodes on Hulu all at once. With that much continuity, it started to come together for me, so I set a timer on the DVR. I think it has potential, I just need to stop playing on the laptop while I'm watching tv.
I gave up on it after the second episode. It's just terrible. Terrible writing, terrible directing, and even worse acting (mostly thanks to Anthony Edwards). There is just so much of that show that makes zero sense (pun intended). I find myself laughing at it's ludicrousness.
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.
For those that were watching and would like to watch more...
They are bringing it back June 15th and burning off the last 10 episodes.
Glad to hear it!
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.
Did they do an ending episode during its hiatus?
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.
