ELEVENTH HOUR The Complete Series DVD Review


I wouldn’t call myself a procedural fan, but I do enjoy some procedural shows, and ELEVENTH HOUR was one of them, and that’s why I was happy to be take a look at the recently released Eleventh Hour: The Complete Series DVD.

Eleventh Hour follows Dr. Jacob Hood (Rufus Sewell), a brilliant biophysicist and special science advisor to the government and his FBI appointed bodyguard, Special Agent Rachel Young (Marley Shelton), as they investigate crimes of a scientific or paranormal nature.

What I really enjoyed about the show is first of all Rufus Sewell, whom I have been a fan of ever since seeing him in Dark City (great movie by the way you should check it out). He plays a really great Jacob Hood and makes you want to tune in to see more of him.

The relationship between Jacob Hood and Rachel Young is also what made the show work because they are such polar opposites, but work so well together. And of course, there is a special bond (not romantic though) that is created between the two because of the situations they deal with together.

Characters are one thing, but you also need good stories in order to stay interested in the show. And that’s another reason I enjoyed Eleventh Hour. The stories went subjects like cloning to cancer being miraculously cured, and always ended with some sort of scientific explanation. I personally enjoyed the process of that each episode went through to explain each case.

Unfortunately, the bad news is that Eleventh Hour was cancelled after 18 episodes. There wasn’t any real ending either, although the last episode is pretty self contained and could be considered as some sort of ending to the show.

Overall, I think that if you’re a fan of procedural shows and are looking for a new show to watch, you might consider watching all 18 episodes of Eleventh Hour. And if you were a fan of Eleventh Hour, well you can now own the DVD to watch all the episodes over again. Unfortunately, there is no special features on the DVD, which is kind of disappointing, especially if you were a fan of the show.
