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.

    What canceled I was just getting into it and it was a very interesting series, how can they cancel after three shows? really!

  2. Steve says

    I’ve completely given up on ABC!! For years it’s been a given that if I like a show it’ll be cancelled. If it’s mindless it’ll be on forever . . . but that’s what the 18-49 demo apparently wants. Someone needs to start a new network called xABC for all the good shows they send to a premature demise.

  3. Sandie says

    Very intriguing.

    Very sorry to see this show end. Makes it hard for me to want to watch a new show and get invested in the charaters to only have then cancel it. I make get rid if tv and just use netflix. Maybe your numbers were not what you wanted but what do you have to say to those of us that looked forward to seeing this show every week.

    I loved this show! What are they thinking? There are so few good dramas with great writing. They could have just moved the day or time slot. I suppose they will replace it with another nonsensical situation comedy. Please bring back ZERO HOUR and other shows that actually make you use your mind and imagination.

    I love the show… After 3 shows. Are you kidding me. This is the reason I usually wait for 6-8 episodes…just in case I like the show and never see the ending, or at least tie the show up a bit. Perhaps many folks are like me…. wait and see . I don’t trust the networks to wait it out “OR” care about the viewers that may actually take a risk and start watching one of their new series. I should have kept to my No. 1 Rule… don’t engage until the 6-8th episode and then go back and start from the first episode and catch up. BOOO on canceling this show… instead ABC starts a terrible new series RED WIDOW… it was terrible and why did I watch the first episode, because my husband watched it and begged me to watch it with him.

    I am honestly shocked that such a good drama packed show was pulled from the air so quickly the show was full of twists and turns and kept you guessing at every end hopefully we will see it again someday

    It’s a shame the show was not given a chance. I really enjoyed it. It was a different storyline. It seems that a lot of shows that I get hooked into have been cancelled. You do not know what to watch anymore. Three episodes is not enough to tell if Zero Hour was good or bad. Putting it on another night might help with the rating.

    I can’t believe it was cancelled. Very good show. Smart, intriguing, interesting . They cancel this and yet do many truly garbage shows are still on the air. Pity.

  10. Helen says

    My husband and I really enjoyed the show. The plot was different for a change. I don’t think they gave the show a chance. We wish we could have had some input before they canceled it.

  11. Barbara says

    I thought that was a great show…. couldn’t wait for thursday!!!! It was interesting and not filled with sex and stupid situations. I loved the mystery and the unknowing. What a shame. I hope ABC will reconsider. Maybe a different time slot. Once upon a time and Zero hour are my favorite. I waited for a show like this. I would buy the full series on DVD if it isn’t on television.
