It's about time I post a bit about Zero Hour, a new show that premieres Thursday, February 14th at 8|7c on ABC.
You know how much I love a great mystery and how I get excited at the thought of solving puzzles, learning and uncovering the truth and Zero Hour seems to cover those bases. But in all honesty, it's when they posted a few classic Modern Skeptic magazine covers that really perked me up. The covers hint to a few familiar myths, things not being what one may assume and that there's more (or less) going on than meets the eye; things that require further investigation and have yet to be explained. The covers incorporate various unique ABC TV shows as the topic of interest, which is very clever and cool, but one cover they included connects us to our beloved LOST and the "Island" - a show that's been off the air since May 23, 2010. And of course I totally love the fantastic ONCE Upon A Time cover and the questioning of portals. Both LOST and ONCE Upon A Time involve, time, different realities/other worlds, portals and share many more connections.
IMDB lists Ken Leung (LOST's Miles Straume) in a starring role, but he doesn't show up on ABC's cast list from what I've seen.
Needless to say I will give Zero Hour some time and see where it leads.
The premise of Zero Hour:
As the publisher of Modern Skeptic magazine, Hank spent his career
following clues, debunking myths and solving conspiracies.
But when his beautiful young wife is abducted from her
store, an antique clock shop, Hank gets pulled into one of the most
compelling mysteries of human history, stretching around the world and
back centuries. To find his wife, Hank will have to unravel one of the greatest conspiracies of all time.
Contained in one of his wife’s clocks is a treasure map, and what it leads to could be cataclysmic.
Hank will race against the clock, to find his wife and save humanity.
Looking back at a classic cover of Modern Skeptic magazine!
