TV show description:      
Hank Galliston (Anthony Edwards) is the publisher of Modern Skeptic Magazine. He’s spent his career following clues, debunking myths and cracking conspiracies. But when his beautiful wife, Laila (Jacinda Barrett), is abducted from her antique clock shop, Hank gets pulled into a more compelling mystery than he could have imagined, one that stretches around the world and back centuries.

Contained in one of his wife’s clocks is a treasure map, and what it leads to could be cataclysmic. It’s up to Hank to decipher the symbols and unlock the secrets of the map. While doing so, he must ensure that the answers don’t fall into the wrong hands — like those of a sinister, mysterious man known only as White Vincent (Michael Nyqvist).

Hank, along with his two young associates — Rachel (Addison Timlin) and Arron (Scott Michael Foster)– and FBI agent Rebecca “Beck” Riley (Carmen Ejogo), embark on a race against the clock to not only find his wife, but to save humanity.

But when the team unlock the doors, what they find is unimaginable. With faith shaken and time running out, it’s up to Hank and the team to take down Lynch and save the world before it’s too late.

    Wish ABC would bring this show back, it was very interesting. Maybe we could get a fan base together and protest it’s cancellation like Jericho did.

    This was/is an excellent television series & so relevant to many of the struggles facing people today. What a shame it wasn’t given more of a chance. I think it needs to be brought back! It sure didn’t get much promotion! I’d rather watch it than another clone of CSI!!

    i loved this show. The acting and writing was good! Too bad it was cancelled.
    i guess people would rather see criminals swearing at each other on reality shows which have no merit.
    Regular networks have gone way way down. Maybe they should try to sell it to a cable network and we might see it again.
    Does anyone watch CBS NBC or ABC anymore?

    I LOVE this show. I cannot believed to was cancelled. I guess the network doesnt like a show that you have to watch week after week to get the whole plot. I agree with Donna. There are too many predictable shows. Not many left that challenges the mind. I hope for a return as well. I feel there is still much more to learn & ponder.

    Really enjoyed the show! Hope it continues, even if the name needs to change,as a drama that researches world mysteries. Loved the cast! Would be a shame to lose an interesting, thought-provoking series, when we are inundated with idiotic reality shows.

    I watched all 13 episodes….it was a thought provoking, twists and turns show that kept me wanting more. I hope ABC considers bringing it back.

    I love the story line of Zero Hour. However, the music is sooooo loud it is very difficult to hear the dialogue. If others feel the way I do, no wonder the numbers are down. It is very frustrating, trying to decipher what the actors are saying. Keep the program….fire the person responsible for the messed up audio.

    I love the story line of Zero Hour. However, the music is sooo loud that the dilogue is drowned out. Turn down the background misic so that we can hear what the actors are saying, and keep the program. If people could hear the dialogue, they might be more interested.

    The orginal idea was to use the 13 episodes has a humpping of point for a series. This failed as did Ashley Judd’s Missinf from last year. But has a stand a lone filler for the late spring/summer months I found both of these shows to be entertaining as a one off concept.

    Such a great show…..mystery. Exciting…like reading a book, maked you keep turning those pages! A great show for adults. BRING BACK “ZERO HOUR”. Some idiots didn’t see what a good show they let go.

  11. Bev says

    This show wasn’t given a chance. The acting is outstanding. The writers have twists and turns all along the way. The networks don’t give a show time to develop before the plug is pulled.

  12. Donna says

    I was so excited to see this series return after it was cancelled, only to be disappointed it will not be renewed.Great original story with interesting characters . So sick of all the reality and police shows. Bring it back!!!!
