Thursday TV Picks: ‘Zero Hour’ on ABC
TV picks for Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013, include the new drama “Zero Hour” on ABC, “The Office” on NBC and “Elementary” on CBS.
Tonight in Prime Time
Anthony Edwards (“ER”) returns to series television with this new show that ABC is calling a “dramatic adventure thriller.” Edwards plays the publisher of Modern Skeptic Magazine (ha!) who is drawn into a “Da Vinci Code”-style mystery after his wife is abducted. The premiere is quite a jumbled mess (Nazis, antique clocks, evil babies (!), frozen dopplegangers). It’s as if the producers are trying to cram way too much into too small a space. Series premiere, 8 p.m. Thursday on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
