ABC's Zero Hour

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

So let's talk some TV shows... {I will probably give away some spoilers so be ware if you want to watch this for yourself} I am I lover of mysteries and solving puzzles, so when I saw that ABC was airing Zero Hour I just had to watch! This is literally a show that includes anything and everything I could ever want. Science, religion, conspiracy, kidnapping, Nazis and action... it has it all. How could I not want to watch?!

It originally aired February 14 of this year but didn't get good ratings during the first 3 shows so it was taken off the air. It returned in June on Saturday nights at 8 pm. I'm not exactly sure why it didn't get good ratings the first time around... I loved it, but maybe I'm just weird.

This show literally pulled me in from the beginning. The girl in the back (Laila)  is married to the guy in the front and center (Hank). Laila is the owner of a watch/clock repair shop. Hank is the owner of a magazine called Modern Skeptic. Appropriate job seeing as he is about to be sucked in to a huge conspiracy. Any who, Laila gets kidnapped by the guy beside Hank on the right (White Vincent) and Hank is on a mission to find her. The FBI gets involved because White Vincent is a known terrorist who was behind the crashing of a plane and that's where the girl on the left comes in (Beck). The other girl on the right and the guy in the back on the left (Rachel and Aaron) work with Hank at Modern Skeptic. They are basically his sidekicks and help him find clues and find his way back to Laila. Laila basically gets kidnapped because of an antique clock that she bought at an outdoor thrift shop. And that's where it all starts.

But literally every person has a background that just plays into the conspiracy. For example, Hank and White Vincent are clones. They were cloned from two Nazi soldiers who believed in the Church and wanted to hide this major secret having to do with the clocks and Jesus. Laila also has a secret that connects her to the Church and the secret society called the Rosicrucians. And Beck, her husband died on the flight that White Vincent crashed.

There is really more to the story that what I have told, but as you can see, it's complex and interesting and just so hard not to get sucked in. I was so sad that ABC didn't think it was worth continuing in February... which means this will probably be the first and last season of my beloved Zero Hour. Now I'll have to find some other conspiracy show to watch. Darn.
