Probably the most cohesive and less messy of the episodes so far and most "National Treasure-y." Still as ludicrous as ever though.

The most interesting plot hole this episode was how Einstein's final thoughts (that he supposedly wrote on his death bed) ended up buried in a park, in a clock only he knew about.

Catching up with White Collar made me realize how much better they do the treasure hunt arcs. Still pretty ludicrous, but done with more fun and better characters. The key map they had a few weeks ago was inspired. I wish the puzzles on Zero Hour had that kind of flair and imagination.

I imagine implying that Einstein was a Catholic also had something do with it being cancelled.

So this has been canned already, huh? Do I even need to watch the most recent episode? I probably will regardless.

And the broadcast networks wonder why they keep losing more and more market share to cable nets. Hey ABC - it's because nobody wants to invest time in your new dramas because they are afraid they'll get pulled after 3 episodes. Whereas, I have never watched a cable drama that got cancelled in the middle of a season.

Unless the unaired episodes get burned off somewhere, there is zero reason to watch.

Wasn't this a limited series anyway - thought I read it was only 12 episodes. If that's true they probably have finished filming and will eventually air all episodes.

That's right. Those two shows (ZH & 666PA) are two different animals.

And that is unlikely given ABC's track record in the "to be aired at a later date" dept. It appears that this show was only distributed in the US so I'm going to say that we will never see the rest of how ever many episodes are left from any source/local, maybe online at ABC.com as it is an ABC Studios production but I wouldn't hold my breath on that happening either.

Saw this line in an article posted in the HOTP thread and thought it was fitting,

When a show about the walking dead on basic cable beats every network show in the ratings demographic that advertisers care most about, you have to wonder who the real zombies are.

Exactly my thoughts. I have the show in my DVR....will delete it now. Heck....ABCs new Red Widow will stay in my DVR till they finish the season. These network people dont get it. Heck...show the complete series..or the remaining episiode. What they gain by showing another repeat of show other show which will anyway get lower rating then a new episode of this show.

I was watching because of Goose. Thought Thursday's 3rd episode was the best so far. Now cancelled, certainly wasn't great. Maybe they will burn off the episodes on Sat. night???

Nah, I don't think they will air them, there have been several ABC shows that got canned with episodes filmed and they never got to see the light of day..

IMHO the show took too long to reveal stuff and acting was horrible.. people get bored too quickly these days..

I disagree, people are tired of getting burned by the networks. The networks can too many of these serialized dramas way to quickly, causing audiences to hesitate watching the next one that comes along, which causes ratings to drop and the network to can the show... which causes audiences to hesitate watching the next one that comes along... and on and on we go. This would be like Hollywood cutting movies off after 15 minutes and then wondering why people stopped going to the movies. No one wants to waste there time with these season long stories when you know there is little chance that the networks will let them play out. I guess I was one of the few who was enjoying Zero Hour which is why it was probably canceled, every network show I tend to like during the past few seasons seems to get canned. I was all set to give Red Widow a go but not now, I'll wait for it to show up on Netflix if it survives long enough. There is plenty of stuff to watch on cable that is far better then anything the networks are crapping out these days.

I'm just tired of the networks, they seem so out of touch with audiences and they don't even seem to care. I honestly wouldn't mind if they all just disappeared into television history.

Well, I'd say sometimes they should let a show ride and see if it develops any legs .. there have been shows that took a while to garner viewership ..

However, it is a money based choice .. if they think something will draw a bigger audience, and thus more ad dollars .. that is, after all, what pays for these things ..

A show that is not a innuendo based sit com, a police drama or some such, seems almost doomed from the start these days ..

Look at the people who run the networks. They are the sons and daughters of the over privileged. They probably don't even do their own grocery shopping or put gas in their cars. And as I've been saying for years probably the only time they even watch TV is to look at part of pilot to greenlight it. These are the WRONG people to be running the networks. Also I like others here have noticed padded storylines done just to stretch things out to 13 episodes. I would rather watch 6 tight produced episodes over 13 padded ones. As I've said before network execs until changes are made are about 20 years behind the viewers stuck in some kind of fantasy land of concepts they learn at Harvard Business school from profs that never even ran a business.

I dropped out of this one after the second ep. No one loves the serialized drama genre more than me, especially if it's got a supernatural or sci-fi theme running though it, and I really wanted to like this show. But it was pretty bad in most respects, IMO. Certainly no Da Vinci Code. And as was mentioned, Anthony Edwards was a badly miscast lead.
