zero hour
« on: February 23, 2013, 09:22:42 pm »
just watched the first two of this also.  it's quirky, but it kept my attention.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Just watched 4 of these in a row - I agree, you can find flaws everywhere in continuity and just some foolish puzzle figurin' but it is a bit addictive and we are just starting the last aired show right now.

Just finished the Hour 4 episode, won't give anything away but even more twists, enough to keep your head spinning. I like this, cornball as it gets at time - what gets me the most is how the Anthony Edwards character is telling the FBI what to do, except for access to data, the FBI could be pulled from this series. But as in all shows, you have to suspend belief or you knit-pick something to death. That said, can't wait until June for the new episodes.

 i heard it got canceled.  i just don't get how they keep and get rid of shows.  these inane "reality" shows go on and on, but any show that makes you think a little is done before it starts.  networks spew out new shows but don't give viewers a chance to find them and get into them. 

i think about shows like mash and star trek that these days would not have a chance!
