Conspiracy Theorists meet Zero Hour!

Since I first saw commercials for "Zero Hour", I've been excited. Excited about Anthony Edwards (Revenge of the Nerds; ER) coming back to television, because he really is a nice, cool actor. (I see him as the frumpy George Clooney... Sad, but true.) But what's even more exciting, is that the entire basis of the show is Conspiracy. The show addresses little known nuggets that can easily be found in the nearest Encyclopedia, or found via any search engine. I've always been fascinated by several conspiracies, and have spent time throughout my young, little life, seeking out ways to resolve these mysteries to myself, so as our World changes, I count on history itself to show me what direction our future could be heading. 

Zero Hour cures ALL of that. Finally, someone has surfaced with a television show that will have me on the edge of my seat on Thursday nights, so I can wake up Friday morning looking at everyone saying "I'm so glad y'all decided to catch up and join in with the rest of Humanity."

Whatever your faith-base, religion or spiritual background, it will all be challenged within this series. I would never engage in Apostacy, but I will say that some very needed dialogue will transpire once this show gains popularity, and without question, it will be quite popular. 

The first show airs Feb. 14, aka Valentine's Day. I was going to set the dvr today, but once I read a Wikipedia article about the series, it stated that Hulu had its pilot, which would indeed be airing on Thursday. Crisis averted. It was the best 40-odd minutes I'd spent all day.

Thanks for the heads up on the show. It looks interesting; I may check out the pilot online this weekend. But in all honesty, I don't see a television show having that great of an impact on my personal beliefs. Doesn't mean it won't be a great show, just that I see it more as entertainment.

It sounds very very interesting and I will probably watch. I have a friend who is a conspiracy theorist (some people call him a nutcase) so I am going to pass this on to him too. Will be interesting to discuss!

My apologies. My statement doesn't suggest that people will rush to convert to something other belief system. It was only to denote that religious issues are bound to come up: so many of our morals and decision making, as well as how we interact with all of society, heavily stems from our relationship with a "Supreme Being". 

I pride myself on being a culturally conscious person, as opposed to be a "nutcase". lol I hope your friend enjoys it. Every person can identify with the history incorporated in the storyline.

No, no! Don't apologize... I didn't mean my comment to come off as defensive at all! After re-reading what I said, I can see where could have and for that, I must apologize to you. I do agree with you that the way we interact as a whole is often based on our religious and moral beliefs. And I believe open dialogue about religions and beliefs can be very interesting and beneficial. If this show does cause people to start exchanging ideas and theories, I'm all for it -- Perhaps we will solve some of the mysteries of history! Laughing
