Well, we did get some sort of undead (or however they explained it) baby with freaky eyes...

What they really needed was a vampire who is a detective. Those shows have legs.

Angel
Blade: The Series
Blood Ties
Forever Knight
Moonlight
Nightwalker

All of them went more than three episodes.

No. No. No.

They should have gone with zombies instead. Zombies > Vampires. 100% of the time.

There was a pretty cool comic book mini-series, now out in trade paperback, called New Deadwardians. It's set in an Edwardian era where a zombie plague has broken out, and to defend themselves the nobility has (mostly) allowed themselves to be transformed into vampires. The main character is a vampire cop. It is, of course, as with all stories set in the Edwardian period, a parable about class distinctions, but it's quite interesting.

(Hey, you brought up vampires vs. zombies!)

Take the cast of Twilight and drop them into The Walking Dead.

How many would survive? Probably none.

Now take the cast of The Walking Dead and drop them into the latest Twilight movie.

You're gonna have a whole lot of dismembered, decapitated, and hopelessly mutilated vampires.

High enough that I never have to see or hear anything about Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson again, yet not so high that Ashley Greene will be injured. How high is that?

I have to say I feel the general KStew hate is a bit over the top, she's been ok in better pictures, I liked her in Adventureland and The Runaways, and the clips I've seen of her in On The Road haven't been awful. Snow White and the Huntsman was meh, but not awful. Pattinson I can do without

I thought it was like Costner's Robin Hood...a very good movie with a terribly-casted lead dragging it down.

Maybe expectations need to be adjusted. Maybe that is "good" in this age of the internet.

Makes you wonder if anyone watches this stuff before it goes on air. I would like to see the test audience reaction, and the person who then said ' This is another LOST' and got it to air.

What I want to know is, why this thread has lasted so much longer than the show did?

If anybody cares, the unaired Episode 4 is available through Other Means (I assume 5 & 6 will be forthcoming)...

The fact that this is now occupying even a tiny amount of internet bandwidth makes me question my position on net neutrality. I would prefer that any packets relating to this show receive the lowest possible priority - lower than my mother in law forwarding me horribly unfunny jokes via email.

My first thought is "why am I reading a post about a show I don't watch?"

then

"the name sounds familiar, though"

then

"oh no...it's THAT show"

Then

"Hell, no. I don't care"

Zero Hour is now scheduled to burn off its remaining episodes on Saturday evenings at 8/7 this summer, starting June 15.

It was obvious to me that they left a hook at the end for another season.

I liked the story concept, if only it were executed better.
