Eleventh Hour – S01E18 – Medea Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Eleventh Hour wrapped up its first season all the way back on the second of April and I admit I'm just getting around to watching this. Not only have I been busy, but Eleventh Hour has taken a back seat in general to other shows, some of which I review and some of which I don't. I'm going to be upfront right from the start by stating the season finale was a decent way to end the season, but it wasn't the ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E17 – Olfactus Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

So when I originally saw the previews for this episode, I scoffed at the idea of a perfume causing people to act violently. I was hopeful that this could be turned into something really interesting, but things never turned out very interesting here. The opening scene with the red carpet, the camera, the fighting, etc all felt like I was watching another crappy episode intro of CSI: New York and not Eleventh Hour. It felt completely unlike this show for whatever ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E16 – Subway Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

One of the better new procedurals on television is close to wrapping up its first season. I've been very happy with Eleventh Hour. It has proven to be a little corny at times, but I still think it's a little more interesting than some of the other stuff on in this genre. In "Subway", Dr. Hood (Rufus Sewell) and Special Agent Young (Marley Shelton ) investigate a toxin cluster when it is reported in the Philadelphia area. I've mentioned it ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E15 – Electro Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

"Electro" was a fairly shocking episode, naturally. Eleventh Hour's openings are getting better and better, showing very unusual events and having more than 30 people die in individual lightning strikes in a five hour thunderstorm would certainly be called unusual. Naturally, there was an explanation and it was all about nanotechnology. A company trying to further battery technology to bring about better automobiles was responsible for the mess. Well, technically, it was one individual who was sabotaging another scientist's work ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E14 – Minamata Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

The opening scene in "Minamata" was an excellent way to start this episode of Eleventh Hour. The car crash, followed by the drama of the eventual helicopter crash was both intense and intriguing. How could a man suddenly go blind and crash his helicopter? Thankfully, Dr. Hood and Rachel Young are on the case and they have backup in the form of Agent Felix Lee. Lee is played by the quite large Omar Benson Miller, who towers over both Marley ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E13 – Pinocchio Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

At last, we finally had Dr. Hood going after Gepetto. We were introduced to this woman interested in perfecting human cloning in the very first episode, but we haven't seen her since. What happened to her? What has she been up to? She's been sick, apparently. A point of the show that I like is the victims featured each week. I've credited the Eleventh Hour writers for doing a terrific job in creating real people that you can ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E12 – Eternal Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

When it comes to procedurals, there are only a handful I'm really into and most of them have been on the air for a fear years and have established themselves. Eleventh Hour is still in its first season and I don't see it dropping from CBS anytime soon. I don't pay any attention whatsoever to ratings, but there's a certain quality to this show that I'm sure resonates with others. This isn't just your ordinary procedural with boring people being affected ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E11 – Miracle Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

In catching up with Jacob Hood and Rachel Young, we find them both in Montana testing a so-called miracle, but not before Hood interrupts Rachel on a personal day. We find her spending time with a male friend, but we never find out who he is. All we see is a pair of his shoes while he whistles in the shower in the background. When a child seems to have been cured of his kidney cancer, Hood knows something is going ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E10 – H2O Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Last week's episode of Eleventh Hour brought about another unusual case which involved drugs instead of some bizarre conspiracy. I prefer these to the conspiracies since there seems to be a conspiracy on every show on TV these days. I like it when a show uses a good group of characters to make the show more dramatic than some sort of over-the-top story. An outbreak of bizarre behavior in a small Texas community had Rachel Young and Jacob Hood investigating everything ... Read More

Eleventh Hour – S01E09 – Flesh Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Up until now, there wasn't very much attention paid to Dr. Jacob Hood's love life. We know he lost his wife a few years ago, but we've not seen him date anyone despite the fact that some women seem to fall all over themselves once in a while when he's around (that's not something I understand, by the way). Here, we see that Hood has feelings for a friend of his late wife. He just doesn't quite know how ... Read More
