Critic Reviews for Zero Hour Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (24)

Zero Hour is a conspiracy drama that makes you wonder if network programmers are running their own conspiracy - to lose viewers.

Feb 13, 2013 | Full Review…

Lucidity is not a strong point of Zero Hour. Neither are acting or plot.

Feb 14, 2013 | Full Review…

Maybe you'll want to jump aboard this crazy train. But if you do, hold on tight, and don't let your head explode.

Feb 14, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The dialogue is laughable: When the kidnapper calls Hank to find out about the location of the clock, Hanks blusters that he doesn't know anything. "It's good that you don't, brother, because if you knew the real truth, you'd lose your mind."

Feb 14, 2013 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Ambitious and intermittently entertaining, Zero Hour -- and its celebrated lead -- don't quite hit all their marks. But at least the mystery's a hoot.

Zero Hour had zero believability for me.

Feb 14, 2013 | Full Review…

They looked at the television landscape and saw families, zombies, doctors, werewolves and cops, and said, "Where are the Nazi babies?"

Feb 20, 2013 | Full Review…

A decent thrill-ride; albeit one with more than a few logic gaps and some outrageously painful dialogue.

Feb 13, 2013 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Nonsensical dialogue, non-characters, clunky plotting, and sub-par production values, Zero Hour is a waste of time.

Feb 14, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Zero Hour largely delivers the goods with an effectively paced script and compelling plot points that succeed at drawing you in - and making you think.

Feb 14, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
